Here’s a RANT that doesn’t concern you!

I recognize that we all want to love and feel loved. But recently I am encountering two people who show their need for love, and being in a relationship desperately. I understand there’s a huge society pressure on these two to fill a certain social image and role. But we must realize that people push away those who show despair. I, who’s only listening to their desperateness, avoid them every time they start opening up their mouths. So I can’t begin to imagine how the other person involved must feel. Why would anyone want to listen over and over about how “It’s hard to find a man“, “I can’t find a person who wants to settle“, “People just wanna hook up“, “When am I finding the right person“, and the worst part is when they bring you into their despair “You’re lucky!“, “How did you find your person? What’s the secret!“, “How did you convince him to settle down?“, “Shut up, you’re already married“. I am not an advocate of staying single forever, and I would never tell anyone they’re better off single to make them feel better. But how do you expect from someone to want to settle with you and be with you forever, when you can’t be alone with yourself and calm down by yourself! Yes! It’s true! People can sense your despair, and it’s ugly. The least you can do is not to talk about it everywhere you go!

“لو أنِّي أعرفُ أنَّ البَحرَ عميقٌ جِداً ما أبحرت”

The title is a line from the song رسالة من تحت الماء by عبد الحليم حافظ

You will always wonder whether the decision you just made is the right one. Every time we stand before two roads diverging in the wood, we wonder if the road we’re taking is the one less travelled by. So fear not, we all swirl around our decisions trying to find the comfort of knowing it’s the one! However, make no mistake, the decision you believe is the right one today might always be the wrong one for the tomorrows. This is the nature of decisions. There are no right or wrong ones. There are ones that fit today and might not fit tomorrow. You will have to deal with ridding yourself of a decision you make, and take the road most travelled by ones again. And that is another decision to make.

During the past couple of days, I’ve been under attack by twitter accounts because of a quote retweet I posted regarding an incident relating to Saudi Arabia and Canada, and unrelated tweets of my own. Extreme feminists took my tweet hard without asking clarification; not that I would have provided one. I believe twitter is a place where I will say whatever I want, yet I am not obliged to offer explanation. Specially when the people attacking lack the basic manners any one should possess for a decent civilized conversation and discussion. Anyway, those accounts started capturing my words and fuel their followers to attack me, claiming that I don’t practice what I preach.

I am not here to gossip about twitter feuds, so I’ll cut to the chase. The internet is a mean place. It’s not a place to make friends or be yourself. The brainwashed masses are already conditioned to attack and slander anyone who doesn’t follow the leftist agenda, or doesn’t embrace the left’s ideology. Don’t even try to explain a point that might has a hint of tradition, you will be attacked. You will bullied if you called for the freedom of speech for all parties. The only justice and freedom of speech they want is their own. If you go against anything they believe in or embrace an idea that isn’t leftist, they will play the racist card, the misogynist card, the homophobic, xenophobic or any kind of -obic / -ist card they could play! Someone out there have mastered the control over what’s now is considered freedom of thought and speech. This someone have created cyber bullies that will make you feel like the most hated on the internet and ruin your self-esteem, if not ruin your career and life.

So to the few sane and solid out there, to the real liberals and freedom of speech firm believer (whatever this believe might be); be aware and don’t let bunch of loons daunt you from expressing your genuine concerns and believes that might go against theirs.
