Labelled Moody

18 Dec

I’ve been watching Downton Abbey over and over again, for no reasons whatsoever.  Well, that may not be quite so.  I have my reasons for watching it over and over again.

So, why do I watch it repeatedly?  It is to understand characters like Mrs. O Brien and Thomas.  I find their characters intriguing because I have had the misfortune of meeting their likes in my life.

What are they like?  Well, they are bad for nothing.  They just want trouble.  They wish trouble for others.  Now, I know why people want to be good and why they want to do good things.  But, I have never ever found out why people intentionally wish bad upon others, for no reasons.

Although, I do understand people defaming one another to get ahead of each other.  Some people do evil things to avenge.  That may be understandable.  Some people do bad things because they are jealous of the ones they wish trouble for.  Some people do evil to get attention.  Some people do evil things unknowingly and often don’t realise that they are doing something evil.  Apart from such “genuine” reasons for doing bad things, there are some who do evil just for the sake of doing evil.

These people do not have any hidden agendas.  They are just purely evil.  These are the bullies, the evil bullies.

In my life, whenever I have tried to stand up to such characters, I have been labelled moody, temperamental, spoilsport, sensitive, “doesn’t have a sense of humour”, “doesn’t even understand we are joking”…  And so, for a long time I blamed myself and believed that I may be all the “labels”.  For a longer time, I became the labels.  For the longest time, my conscious and conscience both imprisoned me.

I was humane, they were not.  I began feeling pity on them.  What a life they must be living!  If their happiness comes from seeing others miserable, that just shows how very miserable their lives must be.  This is how I have become an expert at burning bridges – the bad bridges, at least.  These bridges can’t be restored.  They only see their side of the coin and they can find nothing evil in themselves.  I feel sorry for them now.  I really do.
