The Strong Get Nothing But Grief

Why Don't 'Normal' People Get Any Praise?
Just because someone doesn't fall victim to vices does not mean that they do not have struggles themselves.  It just means they have a stronger mental, emotional and physical fortitude than those who do fall prey to such vices.  People in the work place are being praised for sobriety and oftentimes blaming lack of performance on their inability to handle stress thus falling to hard drugs or depression.  Fuck that.  They use their lack of fortitude as a weapon of pity.  The man/woman who keeps on keeping on, without showing any signs of weakness often gets the short end of the stick.  It becomes a competition of who has the most 'mental illnesses'.  Don't tell so and so they're under-performing!  They might relapse!  Don't be too tough on so and so!  You might cause them to kill themselves!  Go ahead, do it.  I won't lose any sleep over it.  If it's in God's will right?


The Strong Get Nothing but Grief
They haven't caught the 'disease' of addiction or depression.  Disease my ass.  You are a culmination of your decisions and actions.  The strong and silent never get jack shit except grief.  You're treated like a punching bag because people know you'll take it without falling back on the pitiful excuse of relapse/depression/suicide.  It's even more bullshit when you're in a country as great as the United States of America.  You want to know about depression?  Why don't you go visit the depressive landscape of North Korea?  Why don't you go visit the famine areas of Africa?  Then you will see what depression REALLY means.  You want to know about anxiety?  Why don't you go visit the war-torn front-lines of Ukraine, where you don't know when a munition will drop on your head.  Oh what's wrong?  You have running water, food and shelter.  Better do heroin and act like a victim!  Oh my God, you are so brave!  Fuck you.  Fuck you and everyone who enables you to act like a victim.  You made decisions and now the chickens are coming home to roost.


I See You
For those strong people who suffer in silence and do not fall victim to vices.  This blog is for you.  I see you.  I admire you.  I am proud of you for being the perfect specimen of tenacity.  Push back against the drug addicts, the alcoholics, the anxious and the depressed.  Do not fall for their victim hood and keep on being strong.  Fuck them.  They'll cull themselves soon enough......
