Writing Prompt Saturday ~ Things That Make You Go Hm...

I thought we'd go down a fun road this morning with our writing prompt. Trust me, I have a lot I could write about on this subject, but I'll tighten it.

Every person on this planet is unique in their own way. That involves how they see the world, their interpretations of things, situations and conversations, how they choose deal/cope with things, what their priorities are and how aware they are of how their actions and reactions effect other people.

I mean, there are those people who are so tunnel-visioned, they just refuse to see the world through other people's eyes. These sorts of people make me 'hm', because their primary goal is to get what they want how they want regardless of how other's feel or think. And if/when someone attempts any sort of reason or compromise, that someone gets a beat down in some way.

The opposite end of the line are those who give and help at their own expense. Lending a helping hand to those in need is the Christian thing to do, but constantly giving, which includes what's inside of you, and sacrificing your own priorities to give that help only causes the helper to need even more help later on because they have nothing left to give. This group of people make me 'hm' because although I am all for helping others in need, I won't do it at the expense of my health, my children or maintaining my home.

The other thing here is that there is a fine line between 'helping' and 'enabling'. A person who asks for help usually just needs to get out of a rough patch and will pay back in some way and all is said and done. A person who is enabled always expects that person(s) to give them what they need, even if they have the ability to take care of things on their own. They don't intentionally mean to be this way but they don't see how the constant asking for help truly effects the asked person and what given up or sacrificed on their part just to help. (This is another 'hm' group entirely and has a tendency to piss off both aforementioned groups.)

So, there you go. I'm sure you can come up with a few writings about what you've seen, experienced or done in dealing with a variety of people with a variety of personalities. I'm not just talking about rants here (although, those can be cleansing at times). I mean situations you hear about or experience where you're thinking, "I just don't understand why...".

As I've said many times, life is about seeing the world through all different eyes and what we can do to make peace somehow.

Happy Writing!
