Truth: If you’re bored, it’s because you’re boring.
If you can’t entertain yourself, you don’t deserve to have other people entertain you. If you can’t find something in your current situation to be enthusiastic about, you deserve to be miserably bored. Sheesh. Life is what you make of it, whether you’re 13 or 31. 17 or 71. Stop expecting other people to pop in and entertain your sorry ass. Just entertain yourself. If those around you aren’t at least a bit entertained, and you’re not hurting anyone, then fooey on them. They deserve their boredom.
I’m sick and tired of people who don’t realize that they ALWAYS have a choice. About EVERY DAMN THING in their lives. EVERYTHING. As children, we have a choice. As adults, we have a choice. As old farts, we have a choice. Some of our past choices may limit our current ones. Sometimes other people have a lot of control to limit our choices. But we ALWAYS have some kind of choice. Don’t believe me? Try to feed a 2 year old that won’t eat. There’s always a choice. You may not like your options, but you have them.
What would happen if everyone in the world just actually took charge of their lives? Owned up to their decisions, or their indecision, or lack of decisions. What would it be like if we all accepted the responsibility of living our own damn lives? Where would this world be if we all just realized that we had a choice?
And people wonder why monks self-immolate. They understand. They have a choice.
