Nadine On…Being Polyamna

I’ve been accused of being a Pollyanna before. Sticks and stones.

Just because I haven’t watched a complete news broadcast in upwards of 14 years just means I don’t like swallowing all of the negativism that the liberal media wishes to shove down our throats. Same with newspapers. Spare me your Startle-Gram and Dallas Mourning News.

Which leads me to the point of this rant. At the risk of offending those of you Facebook fans of the dark and marauding posts about animals abused and neglected, children abducted, human trafficking, elder abuse and terrorism ad nauseum! You people need a little Jesus and sunshine in your lives! Seriously.

Don’t you get tired of living in darkness and shadows all the time? And chronically posting about it?

Yes, Virginia, the world is full of dark places. People who abuse others and Gods beautiful creatures. But why keep shedding light on them? Don’t you get it? Don’t you understand you are exploiting those very ones you should be protecting?

I’m not talking about the occasional “heads up” informatics. I’ve done that myself. But not on a constant newsreel of bad news and bad information and bad people.

I feel sorry for you. Truly, I do. Because your world is dark. Your issues have issues that I can’t even begin to understand. Perhaps you could consider taking a step back? Maybe your world is cloaked in darkness because you are? The glass, for you, is always half empty.

And while I’m compassionate. My compassion has limits. Color me human.

So, in the true spirit of the Happy Family Trailer Park, where it is safe to make eye contact here…I wish you light and love, compassion and understanding, peace, harmony and domestic tranquility. A centered presence. And maybe a cheeseburger and a beer cause it might be good for your soul.

And chocolate.

Post what you must. I’ll keep scrolling. Setting my boundaries high to block out the darkness while letting in the light.

Peace, love and light

Polyannaically (is that a word?) yours,

Nadine Bodine

Your very BEST friend in the whole entire world!
