Before I start: This is not to attack everyone of this path in general. It is to tell of the indecency of SOME people that happen to follow these paths being rude ass individuals. It deserves to be said by someone.
As you can see by the title, I’m going to kind of rant, and yes, about people in the spiritual community that I’m part of. Well, I wouldn’t say ‘part of’ because a lot of the time I feel like everyone is against me. What have I done?
I have tried to engage in conversation, get advice, be ‘part’ of the community, and I am always met with such rude snide comments. Why does this happen? Am I the only one this is happening to?
It seems as though these certain people have a little group on the internet, and if you interfere, the “popular” kids are going to tear you a new one. I honestly feel like I’m in 5th grade again trying to fit in with everyone while they judge you. Who are they to judge?? They are no better than anyone else. A lot of these people would be the ones to state that: “Everyone deserves a fair chance, we’re all equal, we welcome those from all paths.” MY ASS!
And once again, This is only pertaining to CERTAIN individuals. I have met a SMALL handful of really nice wiccan/pagan people and they were great, but it seems hard to find these people. The larger spiritual community seems stuck up their own asses like they’re so damn righteous or something.
I guess it comes with every ‘religion’ though right? There’s always that group of assholes making everyone else look bad.
Some experiences I have had with ‘certain’ individuals are when I have tried to only join a chatroom/forum, and try to make friends that share a common interest, or to ask for help with something. In these situations I have literally only been met with kindness twice! Everyone else wanted to make smart-ass comments about the font I used, my age and how my problems are less because of it, rude cursing, threats, and even a whole small group of people just attacking me for asking a simple fucking question.
It is very irritating and sad, really, that it is so hard to find people that are true. You have to look very hard to find the good people, the ones who are serious about helping others and wanting to make the world a happier place. The others, they just seem to want to create chaos and they feed off of it. I bet those individuals had a great laugh after I left the chatroom and then deleted my profile from a site I had been on for a long time.
That’s another point I’ll make quickly. I seem to join wiccan/pagan sites looking to talk to people about common interests, and I leave months…years later, friendless. I tried to talk to people and they just all seem to be ‘up their own asses’ again. I don’t get it, I really don’t.
I know I am NOT the problem; I am super polite, I am very shy and try to be quiet in my approach to people, and I don’t want to cause any problems or cause a rift in the flow. I just think a lot of these people, and people in general, are just mean individuals looking to take their issues out on others, and it saddens me because it makes me fearful to be part of anything. That’s all I ever wanted.
If anyone else has dealt with this please feel free to let me know, at this point I feel pretty damn alone. And also, this blog was not to offend anyone unless you’re one of the heartless assholes in the world
