Seriously, Hang in There

Most people like silly inspirational stories. At least, I assume most people do because I see people posting them all the time and there’s never any winky faces to hint that they might be joking. Sometimes the only way I get through the day is to pretend that everyone on Facebook is a master of sarcasm.

I’ve never found any of these inspirational stories to be especially inspirational. They make you think that if someone is telling you that they don’t like you it’s only because they playing a little word joke because they actually *love* you.

This doesn’t happen in real life. If someone tells you they don’t like you, they actually probably hate you. People downplay the bad, not the good. That’s just science.

If I wrote my own inspirational memes or greeting cards, I’d want them to actually show you something real. If someone tells me to “just hang in there,” I want to know why, damn it.

Just Hang in There

A fiery pit is a good reason to “just hang in there.” If someone had told the kitten that there was a fiery pit, it probably wouldn’t have started messing around on a skinny branch to begin with.

    I wonder if the inspirational quotes aren’t actually mass mind control, seeking the behaviors of the masses to be subdued snd then conquered.

    Signed, paranoid…

    “Sometimes the only way I get through the day is to pretend that everyone on Facebook is a master of sarcasm.” Wow, I need to try that! It’s like that time when I mentally replaced every quote-image with an image of Hitler (it changes everything).

    I really feel that a lot of kittens miss this day in school… mostly because they are busy getting their eighteen hours of sleep and can’t be bothered.

    So I haven’t popped in for a while and I”m an awful blogger friend. 😦

    But here’s a fun fact… that motivational poster was originally from the 70s and that kitten has been dead for decades. I’M JUST A GIANT RAY OF SUNSHINE. 😀
