A short rant
I try not to hate, but sometimes it’s hard not to hate about some things. I hate being lied to. I hate being lied about. I hate being gossipped about. I hate someone making false assumptions about me based upon a scant modicum of information or even a lack of information. I hate being blamed for being the messenger. I hate being blamed for the words or actions of someone else.
I hate when people refuse to listen. I hate when people refuse to engage in an actual conversation. I hate when people see the world in black and white, and ignore the possibility of gray. I hate when people are so caught up in themselves that they forget about the feelings of others. I hate when people blame others for something without considering their own part, or taking responsibility for it. I hate when someone tries to manipulate me.
I hate when people who have been working and publishing online for a while look down on newcomers, and don’t cut them some slack for mistakes that they might make. I hate when online newcomers look down on those who have been online for a while, and don’t cut them some slack for mistakes that they have made.
