I Feel Sorry For…

No, I won’t apologize and say what I’m sorry for. Not now, not today. In this post, I want to share a few of my thoughts… And share what kind of people I feel sorry for. In the last few months, I have a few more projects to work on and I realized a few more of my good and bad sides. However, I also realized that there are some qualities that I don’t tolerate and sometimes I feel sorry for some people – in one way or another.

I feel sorry for people who… hate animals. Okay, my opinion? You can’t love people, if you can’t love animals. People who hurt animals will hurt a human being in some way. Their aggression is something that is inside them and one day, it may show up while fighting with their family or kids for example. Haters gonna hate! It doesn't matter if they hate animals or people. Sooner or later, the hate will appear in their personal life.

I feel sorry for people who… don’t respect the health of the others. By the way, in Bulgaria, this is what everyone’s talking about the last few weeks. And I think that this is a good thing, because people give their opinions. Well, of course, I really disagree with all the people who think smoking is SO important. What I mean? (with a few more details, because I guess not all of you know the current situation about the smoking in Bulgaria) In every country, there are people who smoke and who don’t – that’s obvious. According to the last statistics I saw, the percent of non-smokers is higher and that I LIKE! Almost every country around the Globe has a non-smoking rule for all public places and it’s so ridiculous when an undeveloped country like ours, start with these again RIDICULOUS reasons why this should be allowed. And we should also consider the fact that the so called rooms for smokers and non-smokers represent a glass separating the same hall and basically the air is the same. And all this “But what about our rights?” shit… Well, Mr Smoker – what about our health? I’m sorry, but I have to say – the rights of the smokers end there where the nose of the other guy begins. End of story.

I feel sorry for people who… have the power to help and still… don’t do it. Here, I’m talking more specifically for our project – the so called “Mission Zoo”. Here’s the deal. In the beginning of the project, there were like 60-70 people that agreed to help and to “donate” their time for the good of the animals. There were like 10 people on our first initiative… And then another 10 raising funds for two weeks, every day, all day… Then we start with the repairs and I was so excited about everything. I thought that now, everyone will help, because this was the more fun part of the project. Well, I was so wrong. In the beginning, 15 people came and on the next day we were 10… and then 5… and then 3… I can’t judge the people who had a really good reason to skip helping some of the days. But there are some people who were so excited about everything, gave me tips on how should we manage the tasks, telling me how much they love animals and that they even watch “Animal planet” every day and they’d love to work in the zoo one day. Here, I quote one particular person, because I’m not that mad when someone doesn't come one or two... or three days. I’m mad when someone is so insolent and don’t know his right place. And then is another person (again, too mad after that) telling me that he or she (I won’t specify) won’t participate, because he or she is too busy (okay, I can take that) and then adding: “you should not count on anyone, but yourself”. Okay, now I’m pissed. Almost everywhere, you CAN’T enter a college/university without any voluntary or other activities. I personally know people who went to Haiti to help, organizing projects, even being a leader of a Starcraft team. EVERYTHING MATTERS! And then… there are the Bulgarians (well, not all of them), explaining how impossible is for them to help. Guys, I’m not saying this only because you refused to help me. I’m saying this, because THIS will harm you in some way in the future. You will say why you care about us… Good question – I don’t know, I just do. And you should take that advice and think about it seriously. Think about what you want to do with your future. Because it’s not all about finding a good job and having a family, etc. Life is about making every second counts. Life is about love, help others and happiness.

I have actually many more things to say. However, I decided that I will stop here. I sound like an old lady, but the truth is that I’m a perfectionist and my life is all about enjoying it to the fullest, making all my dreams to come true and … having fun while working, studying, being with my friends and experience everything this world offers. And I don’t mean drugs, alcohol and cigarettes. I mean the real experiences such as traveling, meeting new people, new cultures and projects!
