Reflection for today…Heartless People -Charles Bukowski

11 Feb

“People are not good to each other.

Perhaps if they were our deaths would not be so sad.” 

Charles Bukowski

Love is a Dog from Hell

Something happened this past Friday that inspired this post.

That day I lost my faith in people.

{I hope to get it back}.

For now, I am left thinking that most people mistake kindness for weakness.

People can be so heartless, cold and cruel.

Bukowski said it is such a sadness that we are not that good to each other while we are alive.

I totally agree with him that we should treat each other better while we are still alive- while we still have time.

There won’t be any wasted regrets this way.

Well, you can only try your best.

At least your conscience will be crystal clear.

What matters most is if you can look in the mirror and look yourself in the eyes and be proud of who are.

If you can be true to yourself and your ethics, then you have been authentic.

You have been real.

You have been truly honest.

You have integrity, dignity/honour and character.

    Did you lose your faith in people or was your perception or expectation of people false? In other words, did you lose faith in yourSelf?

      Slayer Muser…
      What a clever question but I did not lose faith in myself.
      If anything, my faith in myself was only forged stronger.
      I lost my faith in people but I know that I will get it back again.
      {Unfortunately, this situation has happened before.
      I hope that this time, I am resilient and wiser as a result}.

      Sometimes in life you discover that some people have no ethics.
      Certain people can be so heartless and selfish but thankfully that is not every one ;).
      The trick and the challenge is judging people’s character.
