The Righteous Brothers

The Righteous Brothers

Unless you’re a true lost soul, you have an idea how you would like your world to be. A common complaint that some have is the dearth of kindness in their lives. People, in general, are thoughtless if you partake of this line of thinking or maybe this just pertains to you, in which case perhaps you've stumbled into the wrong chink in time. But how to rectify such a state of affairs? Do you tell those around you who are the source of the insult they're wrong and you're right? It’s a little like what goes on between nations and why diplomacy is preferable to war. Neither individuals nor collectivities like to be attacked, so criticism is likely to provoke a defensive reaction. Injustice collectors often walk away empty-handed. So what action to take if you're hurting? Is it pollyannaish to think that being kindly  guarantees a quid pro quo--particularly if someone doesn’t even realize they have offended you. If you're so unhappy you can secede from your "union." You can give up the little happiness you occasionally have and tell your significant other (s) what you think of them before saying goodbye for good. "You've lost that lovin' feeling. Now it's gone, gone, gone..." sing the Righteous Brothers.
