I start with the above title because I as you all know am part of several FB groups. I saw where a lady posted a question regarding anger and MS.
She was curious if this was an MS thing or not. My response was It’s just part of life. Angry times,happy times. Ya know peaks and valleys and all that jazz? “
I don’t understand why this isn’t just common sense. Life is hard as a whole. Even under the best circumstances we have trying times in our life.
We all have melt down at times. I know I do and I’m sure the rest of you do. I had those times well before MS as well.
Now in her defense she may be on medication that is making her emotions surface even more. I don’t know all of her circumstances.
But with all of that I say we should not hold ourselves to a standing where we can’t have angry moments. We’re human, it’s normal and it’s ok. We don’t have to be perfect people. Life is messy at times and it’s ok for us to be messy too.
I am more than willing to say I have angry moments,sad moments and happy moments etc. when I have an issue I usually steer clear of everyone as not to be shitty. Because yes we can be angry, sad etc But it’s never ok to down other people. That’s not fair to the general public.
I had an incident with a fellow MSer who made a snarky comment about a positive meme I posted. I then saw he also made another shitty comment on another meme of mine. I know this man is very sick with MS as well as another life threatening condition.
While I feel bad for this man and my heart goes out to him, I felt the need to pull his coat and let him know that being sick is not an excuse to be shitty.
I can not stand and will not tolerate a happy shamer. If I’m in a funk because MS is kicking my ass I shut my fucking mouth and keep it moving. If more people did this we might not have all the negative behavior we have in the world.
So that’s my bit of advice for everyone. If you’re having a rough time don’t spread the negativity to other people. It’s poison to someone who’s trying their level best to keep it positive.
Life is messy and hard. We all should try to encourage people out of the valley not drag them down into it with you.
Regardless of my situation I absolutely love to see folks doing well. We should all practice this way of being.
