This is a time of the year of happiness and joy. I do not feel this year!
My year in my neighborhood has given me great sadness to the joy of others. i have looked back at my neighborhood and have seen some ugly hurtful situations. I use to sit on my porch and say HI to everyone but the hurtful actions have turned that into no fun :-(
I was always taught "turn the other heck" or "laugh it off" or "learn to ignore". As you age, you should not be even thinking those things because your peers are to be beyond that age of bully, abuse, critical, making fun of you, ignore you or all those negative attributes.
I am sensitive; probably, yes I am but I keep it hidden as any professional or mature person most of the time. Oh, I could list the issues but I do not wat to point fingers.
I just hope my 2023 is a better year with God's Blessings and Strength. It is not everyday; you truly meet someone that lives in a neighborhood that they love to find so many who are hurtful. We have better character in this community and the best place beyond some of our peers. I hope everyone sees that this Holiday and the coming year to enjoy everyone and everything with Happiness - 2023.
