Where has respect gone?

I won’t lie this blog may come over as a slight rant at society but it will also come across as something far too familiar to many of you.

As many of you know that follow of me, I have been doing some gardening to help with my mental health and overall well being. It was supposed to be something positive in my life and having my garden to look at would be a perfect reminder to enjoy the little things in life.

Well today that was thought was driven over. This isn’t a metaphor. Nope. Someone had drove over my front garden, knocked down my fence and smashed up my plant pots.

Firstly my reaction to this was pure rage! I mean what is wrong with society. Does anyone have respect for anyone or their property anymore? It’s really sad to think my daughter is going to live in a world where know-one shows respect for her or her feelings.

I grew up in a family where we were taught to be nice to everyone and be respectful to one another. Now if I’m correct in thinking, this is not that difficult. It’s not that hard to NOT drive over someone’s garden. If you feel I’m wrong please take your driving test again to know the difference between road and grass.

Secondly I felt and overall sadness for what had happened. I always keep to myself where I live I’m not noisy or messy I am what I call a good neighbour. So for someone to do this it’s made me question was this out of stupidity on their part or out of some sort of hate towards me. It’s left me feeling pretty low this afternoon. I had a lovely time with my daughter painting this morning and then when I saw my garden I have just felt the opposite of how I am meant to when I look at my garden.

I guess I am writing this blog out of sadness that the world just isn’t a place that I would like it to be. It isn’t inspiring and caring and loving. It has these people that just have no regard for peoples feelings. It isn’t easy for me to find time to do my garden having my daughter full time and I was proud of myself for doing it and making it look nice. I would just like to say to those out there who also have these idiots around them to know that I feel your sadness and anger, however it is those people that have lack of respect. It is those who lead these lives that don’t care about others. So yes it’s upsetting but it’s more upsetting that these people exist.

I won’t let these people ruin what I’ve worked so hard to achieve. Mental health is hard enough to cope with. We all need to be there for each other and support each other. Here for anyone who needs to rant too! ☺️

Be caring to yourself xx
