So wordpress just informed me that i have now published 100 posts on this blog. I’ve been working rather slowly when it comes to posting here. I don’t know why that is. On my earlier blog i had a bloodlust to post articles and pieces. It was a different time and i was a different person i suppose. Or maybe the cynic in me has taken over completely. On most days there is an overwhelming thought that i strongly believe in but i feel writing about it isnt going to change anything in this world. Maybe because it is true. It most certainly is true. It affects me deeply to see the things that people now do to each other. Perhaps they have always been like this and only now have they developed the courage to do it openly and shamelessly. The blame it on their lives, their jobs, their friends and family and other stuff but never admit that maybe the problem lies in them and them alone. That maybe they themselves are responsible for all the pain in their own lives. Because they choose to be a certain way. I don’t know really. I can’t be certain.
My old blog had a good soul. I miss it and it was quite popular. I made a lot of friends on the blogosphere and it was always refreshing to discuss ideas and posts with them. Often a post of mine would spark a debate. Not the kind of debates you see on the telly these days but a civilised one. An educated one. Where people involved want to listen as much as they want to speak. I miss that really. I had over 400 posts on that one. This mile marker on my new blog brings back memories of that old blog. I don’t know how many people read it or how many people liked what they were reading but it felt nice that people took time out of their lives and showed up to read what i had written on a daily basis.
Now with a 100 posts on the new blog i have a sense of nostalgia kicking in. But all these words on this virtual piece of paper are pointless. In reality, nothing changes. Nothing can be said that can change an opinion these days. We are now all people with an abundance of words with no one to listen. Hell we even communicate with emojis now. It’s like going back to drawing stick figures on cave walls and calling that communication. Man is the only species with the advantage of spoken language yet we have the biggest misunderstandings between us. Never have we been this divided on every single opinion. Just because we feel we are entitled to an opinion doesn’t make it a right opinion in the grand scheme of things. I don’t know. Maybe the cynic inside me has taken over and i feel reluctant to fight this fight anymore. These words now spill out of me out of habit and less out of conviction. I feel defeated swimming in a sea of stupidity surrounding me.
Thanks to everyone who have visited my new blog and have been kind enough to follow me. I also thank you for your valueble comments, likes and shares. It means a lot to me that people take an interest in what i have to say even though those around me in real life couldn’t care less. I thank you with all my heart.
