I have decided to keep a journal of sorts. It is far from a standard diary or journal even as all it will contain will be my moans, groans & opinions. Obviously in my view, politicians should take note and start making changes. Sadly, as my opinions are rather controversial, I have decided to use a Nom de Plume. This will hopefully prevent future repercussions and offer me some protection. Of course, I am aware of “freedom of speech” but I do not truly believe that it exists. I have never been a person to hold back what I am thinking, but when growing up, I quickly learnt that keeping your mouth shut is the best thing all round, almost consequent free.
Naturally, everything builds up and I just need to vent it all out. I could write in a journal or diary but then no-one would get to read it and see how I feel or even make a difference at all in the world we live in. Although, I would like to make a difference I do realise this is not possible until people start thinking & having their own (TRUE) opinions.
By my lamenting I do not wish to inflict my opinion on others, I prefer debate as it is how opinions evolve, but I merely wish to give food for thought. As Rene Descartes said, “I think, therefore I am”. However, in reality, far too many peoples opinion tend to be a result of doing what their parents & educators told them to do & believe, and what their parents’ parents taught them and their parents before etc. And it all started with Religion but that is another topic or several on their own.
Most of my lamenting will be from things I face throughout my life and which naturally irritate me. After all who laments much on the good things? I am aware that as I publish my laments on the internet, it is available for all to see, and so if you feel that you want me to write about something in particular sign my guest books / comments section, and you never know – I just might.
I would like to point out from the very beginning, so that no say-so comes along in 5 years time and says that it not what you said 5 years earlier, that opinions can change. Opinions are affected by us (our personality & characteristics), by our peers, by our lives and incidents which happen. So, YES, my opinions may change with time. It is all about personal self development, which is my original reason for writing this blog. I hope that like me, you too will grow.
Before I sign off from my first lamentation, I must insist that no extract can be taken from my works unless due credit is given to me & my site. It should always stand out either by inverted commas, boldness, italics or larger fonts. If you wish to publish any of my works, you need my express written permission. All of my work is copy written. I would also like to point out that I will in no way be held responsible for actions you may take as a result of reading my works, or incidents which arise as a result of them. If you think that they may affect you life negatively, please do not read any further lamentations.
Please respect my wishes or face my wrath! You have been warned.
Meanwhile, if you decide to keep reading – ENJOY!
