It Makes No Sense

I will never understand the purpose of breaking the spirit of good people who do good work.

Unless you plan on replacing it with evil works.

    Sounds like you need some positive ju-ju! So, I shall put on my hand made crown and build a huge fire to dance around, singing a song just for you. I’m Henery the eighth I am…..


    • Ha! I guess you will! 🙂 But actually, this situation does in this particular sentence or two does not involve me per se. It just breaks my heart to know of it. But all positive energy flowing on it’s behalf would be great. 🙂


  5. Sending a hug to you. And to them. What does one say to this, it is not understandable.


    • It really isn’t Paulette. Why take something good, decent, productive, and destroy the very essence of it? It makes no sense to me. It’s not about me, but I will accept the virtual hug! 😉

    It’s easy to break down and complain, but to actually do something or make a change? Suddenly the naysayers don’t have the time or energy, it seems.

    Bleah. If this is something you are dealing with, then I am sorry and a pox on those others!

    It makes no sense – and that is a blessing. Thank God it is more sensible to us to support things that are good.


  8. Wow – powerful perspective Colleen! ❤

    From my experience, people who break other’s spirits are broken inside… and it isn’t just me who is on the receiving end of their pain.


  10. Makes no sense to me, but that won’t be the first time the spirit of good people has been broken to be be replaced with something bad. 😦 ❤

    Sometimes the only explanation is …stupidity, but the consequences are similar.

    Breaking the spirit of people or animals ignites my anger and on calmer days, brings out my frustration, Colleen.


    • That’s how I feel Robin. 😦

        Oh, so sorry to see a sad face, Colleen.
        You know me, I stick my neck out, put my foot in my mouth and confront people if I feel the person truly hurt someone I care about. It caused a little bit of a ‘rift’ at work when I took up for Melvin and the Filipino friends became offended although they ‘started it’ by saying what they did in the first place. They are now talking to me in a more natural tone, not in monosyllabic responses, so progress is being made and I hope I gave them, ‘food for thought.’

        I hope things/time somehow erase the ‘bad’ person’s effect on the one she or he broke the spirit of. Why do people need to cut others down?

    There is a lot about people I do not understand. Reminds me of that saying ‘There’s nowt so queer as folk’.

    I had an employer a long time back who did that. It was an issue of control – they were in charge and the rest of us were not. Most people buckled under to it too, which was too bad but was the only way to keep peace. The ones who did it would not tolerate pushback.



    • Nancy I think you may be on to something. I’ve seen this before myself though was fortunate enough to not have to ‘deal’ directly with it. People like that, “in control”, lose a lot of good energy, good ideas, and eventually-good people.

      Thank you Nancy.

    This doesn’t sound good. I’m sorry it happened to whomever it was. 😦


  16. niaaeryn says:

    I wholeheartedly agree! I do not understand it either. Enough negative in the world out there as is. If this helps (sorry for language in advance) to be meditative and in thought cleansinf negativity away, sit back, close eyes, deep ly breathe in the good shit, exhale, breathe out the bullshit.
    Sorry, just what came to mind. Afterwards I guess you could still say Namaste?


  17. markbialczak says:

    The people who do this think it makes themselves bigger, MBC. Opposite. It just makes them more insignificant to those that matter.


    • That’s the truth MBM. It is so difficult to witness, or become aware of, even after the fact. I think you are right. It’s done in the interest of the person doing it, never in the interest of betterment for anyone else.
