Bad mood…really bad mood

My day started today with me being preached to by someone quoting Bible Scriptures to me…not letting me get a word in edgewise and in effect judging me. (Yes it happens amongst Christians sometimes.)  Then phone call after phone call, trying to round up rides, some successful and others not.  Finding out the real results of that mammogram, and this afternoon I did finally get the letter with the true results on it, along with a phone call to go in to the clinic where I originally was referred for a mammogram, to get yet another referral.  So I had to then round up a ride to go tomorrow and do that, as the lady at the clinic was very urgent with me about getting in ASAP.

And then conversations (minimal ones, mind you…I chose to participate very little) with people stating in their own special ways why they hate all the hateful, war monging, horrible Christians and are justified in doing so. (Not in the mood.)  But let the reverse be done…let someone come along who’s a Christian saying the same things in reverse, and they’d be all over that person along with probably every member of the news media talking about another example of a hateful, war-monging, prejudiced Christian.

Bottom line:  There are good people, there are bad people.  Not all the good people are Christians, nor are they all non-Christians (even atheists…big surprise to some, I know), and the same holds true for the bad ones.  And truth be told, every one of us has good and bad in us…we all have flaws and human frailty and things we’re right about and things we’re wrong about.  I don’t hate anyone.  But I am NOT willing to be tolerant of people hating me because of some ‘in their head justifiable’ wrong attitude toward me and others like me, any more than they would be of me being that way with them.  Not today.

I’m a human being!  And guess what?  This day has just plain sucked.  I’m tired and ready for it to end.  Yes, I have those days too.  I’m not always little miss Pollyanna, and I don’t feel particularly like being that right now. Right now I’d like to smash something.  Problem is, then I’d just have to clean up the mess and would be out whatever it was I smashed.  Not worth it.

So, how was your day?

  1. You have had a bad day….I’ve been in the frame of mind you are now..(not lately but none-the-less there) and almost came to the same conclusion you did…I thought.I’ll have to clean it up…but then I thought…Oh what the heck…and cleared the counter of everything on it…Only I had one husband was around and when seeing my state of mine said “get away…I’ll do it’…and you know what…I let him lol ….Diane

      🙂 I’m over the angry feelings, which I’m glad about. I hate them. Just feeling exhausted. Think I’ll go to bed soon. Have an early day tomorrow again. Maybe tomorrow will be a whole lot better, and if not, at least maybe I’ll have lost my bad attitude. 🙂 Love and blessings to you Diane. I appreciate your friendship. –Anne

    Let it be known: T’wasn’t moi. I never said a word…;)

  3. Anne, I don’t see this as angry as much as a cry for understanding. You had a hard day, as a woman getting any news about a mammogram will feel our hearts with questions and worry. Everything else at that moment is inconsequential to us, even people’s misconceptions, ideas, or attitudes. You did the right thing by closing them out at that moment. Because in moments like these the only one we really need to be near and in communication with is our Lord Jesus. Next time just smile and turn from them, close your eyes and zone out to a place where Jesus is giving you a hug of comfort. I’m convinced this is why God inspired someone to invent MP3 players, so we could load our favorite worship songs on them and when times like this come listen to it and not to the world…lol!

    Awesome post, and I totally agree. As a Muslim convert, I get upset too with the same wrap given to all of us. And I do defend Christians to any who make claim to less than because we all have individuals within our communities who will do things that have nothing to do with the principles of love, respect, and kindness that all faiths promote. Thank you for sharing how human we really are. 😀

      Thank you Pink. And you’re right…it doesn’t matter what religious or faith beliefs (or lack of them) someone has, as far as whether they choose to do good or bad in their lives. And like I was saying, we all have a bit of both…some seem to go more one way than the other though. Blessings! –Anne

        Thank you so much for bridging interfaith communication right here on WordPress. 😀 HAHA.. I feel so much better about myself too after reading your blog as I have been feeling quite alone in these frustrations with my community. It’s so nice to know it’s normal. 😀
