Blog Challenge: What makes me really angry about the world is…

Before we begin…

This post is the start of Scott Dinsmore’s 7 day blog challenge. Since my writing has gotten a bit lazy of late I have decided to light a bit of a fire under it with this. Each day I will get a new post topic to write about, not all of them will necessarily be things I want to write about too much but I have committed to writing the post each day even if it’s only a small one. Since day one of the challenge is to start the blog, and that has clearly already been done so I am starting with day 2. 6 posts, 6 days, here we go…

What really makes me angry about the world is…

Well honestly, there’s not too many major things for me, especially here in the 1st world, when you look at 3rd world issues, the issues we have pale into insignificance. I find this a difficult topic to write about because I try my best to ignore the things that make me angry, however there are a few niggles which I can complain about if I have to:

  • The fact that there are so many talented creative people who feel that they have to work in areas that they aren’t passionate about. The truth is most people can do anything they want if they really put their heads to it. Sure they might not end up being millionaires from it but isn’t there more to life than just money and fame.
  • The lack of understanding some people have about others hopes, dreams and passions. The great thing about human nature is that we are all individual and have our own aspirations and thought process’, what gets me up in the morning might make others want to stay in bed all day and vice versa. It’s a diverse and exciting world out there so get out and live it.
  • When people don’t take the time to listen properly. There is a difference between listening to what someone is saying and focusing on what they are actually saying, if you aren’t focusing on what they are actually saying and processing it internally, you aren’t listening properly and you can never hope to properly help them or learn from them. It’s an important skill that a lot of people haven’t mastered and it’s the reason you can have a conversation with someone and walk away not remembering any of it.
