keeping my mouth shut

Friday, January 15, 2021

There are days when I realize that the best thing I can do is keep opinions to myself--or at least keep from publicly complaining about things. I like to think I'm a take-things-as-they-come kind of person, but there are buttons that can so easily be pressed and I know that nothing will be gained by making a fuss about them.

I could tell you exactly what is bugging me, but safe to say it is all related to being in the minority opinion at my place of work and knowing that while they like to go on about diversity they only want to consider things like skin color and not points of view when they go on about it.

We are living in a post Christian world and secularized Buddhism has become the religion of the public square.

    Absolutely true! Even Spark, which thinks it is steering clear of religion, tacitly embraces the Eastern religions. They are quite comfortable running articles about yoga and meditation, but they never once mention prayer, which is actually practiced by much more than Christianity. They tout the health benefits of meditation, but equal benefits can be obtained by prayer. At least so far they allow us to say we are praying for one another. Unless, of course, someone complains about someone being so mean as to pray for them!

    i need to learn that lesson too. people get upset and emotional rather then think or look at facts. i can't be in management at my company because i simply can't repeat things that i think are wrong

    It’s tough working in retail when customers try to engage... helps that the company policy is to not discuss politics in general
