What are your top five pet peeves?
Hello all! I know I’m posting this kind of late. I didn’t get a chance to write this out last night. I also realize that I titled the last one as “Day Three” even though it was only the 2nd day, haha. Fixed that! Onwards with the topic, then.
Pet Peeve #1:
When people, typically adults, look down on my career choice.
I’ve made a post about this in the past. You can find it here. It was basically a long rant about how people look down on certain career choices, even if they’re honorable and necessary, just because the salary isn’t high enough. It’s typically family members who do this to me, but it’s almost as if they’re disappointed that I chose to become an educator rather than a lawyer or doctor. It’s sad to see how many people don’t think that teaching is as important of a job.
Pet Peeve #2:
When people post every. single. horrible. negative. detail. about. their. lives.
I won’t go deeply into this. I won’t explain. I don’t want to make anyone feel singled out.
It’s just a personal pet peeve that I can’t get rid of.
Pet Peeve #3:
People who impose their beliefs on others.
I am the type to definitely respect opinions, different perspectives, ect. I’m very open-minded and am willing to discuss and see things from other people’s point of view. However, when someone else blatantly disregards my perspective of things and my beliefs and try to force their beliefs on me instead of hearing me out as well, it kind of feels extremely frustrating. I am not a spiritual person, really. I don’t believe in God or any variation of. I kind of just live my life without wondering or worrying about how everything came into existence. I never pray, never consider the beginnings of life, never wonder about my purpose or my fate. I don’t wonder about what will become of me after I die. My head is usually too filled with stresses and worries and things to be done to think about anything else.
I’ve heard it all before. “God is real.” “You’re going to Hell.” “God will protect you so you need to believe in him.” It’s not that I haven’t tried to be religious, it’s just that it isn’t for me. I can’t force myself, and I won’t. I totally respect that people do believe what they believe in. I think religion is a beautiful thing, all of them. I won’t say none of it is true or real. I just don’t think about.
Pet Peeve #4:
The way my brother eats.
It’s so. Damn. Loud. DON’T EAT SO LOUD.
Pet Peeve #5:
This is more for me, but I hate when I can’t help the people I care about.
Like… when they’re really struggling with something and there’s nothing I can do or say to make it better? That is kind of a pet peeve I have against myself. The frustration of being silent and unable, I guess.
That is all I can come up with. Thank you all for reading!
