Today I don’t really feel like talking too much.
Or writing too much, or pouring my heart out, or getting rid of frustrations. Today I am a bit ‘gatvol’, which is a very South African thing to say, and it is not translatable, but let me try and explain – it means you’ve had enough (of whatever), or you don’t feel like making an effort.
Let me explain why I feel that way.
I write my heart out, and my fingers to the bone, and I get nothing back. Here and there somebody might make the effort to click on like, but I’m starting to get the feeling that it’s too much effort to even do that, so don’t even talk about the effort of maybe actually writing a comment (even if you disagree with me, which I don’t mind)! To those of you who do like and comment (two or three of you), I sincerely appreciate it. I am, after all, trying to start a conversation here, and feedback is always welcome!
I know I tend to go a bit controversial (I don’t think I do, but I can clearly see when you guys feel I’ve overstepped the mark), but has the world and its people been diluted and de-backboned so much that people cannot take a bit of controversy anymore? A bit of ‘testing’? Some needling?
I do enjoy the process of writing, so part of the reason I blog is to write. But believe me, I also blog for the interaction, to try and find out how other people manage certain situations. I talk about a lot of different stuff here, and I cannot believe that nobody has feelings or ideas on these subjects!!!!
I know I’m being a bit too feisty again for the general earthly population, but once again, these are my feelings. I get frustrated! So maybe someone out there can take the time to tell me what the reason is for the general apathy?
And just look at that – I did say a lot, without meaning to!
