So looking at this past Christmas I just realized that people really don’t know what Christmas is and what it means. To be able to give to those that don’t have, not giving a superior gift to look better than everyone else. Ya’ll got it all wrong. Your kid got polo, xbox, toys, jordans,etc. and its kids out here that got nothing that live within’ a 5 mile radius of your home. Now you’re thinking “that’s not my problem those not my kids.” I like that statement. Lets me know you selfish off the bat. The purpose of Christmas is not to buy your own people a bunch of shit it’s to buy people who need things that don’t have. All I saw was I got my mama this, I got that, I bought them this, etc. Only word I see is “I”
The New York Telephone Company recorded a detailed research of telephone conversations once in order to find out which word was the most frequently used. You guessed it: the most frequently used word was the personal pronoun “I.” “I.” “I.” It was used 3,900 times in 500 recorded telephone calls. “I.” “I.” “I.
This leads me to one conclusion “We got validation of life all fucked up.”
Validation of Life is NOT
-What you have.
-Who you fucked.
-How many people follow you.
-Who you can gossip or talk about.
-Who you can make look smaller than you.
-How you can one up the next person.
This is the kind of person that may appear ok, but inside is hurting. You make yourself valid off of things that this time next year won’t matter or will be lost. You can’t base your life on what you have acquired. Never base your happiness on anything that can burn in a fire and doesn’t require a funeral after.
Validation of Life is:
-Helping someone and never bringing it up again.
-Telling someone how to better not belittle.
-Loving the parent that was never there.
-Forgiving the person who curses you.
-Saving the life of a condemn.
-Respecting everyone regardless of who you are.
-Not cussing someone out even when you have a good comeback and you been wanting to say it for a long time.
I say all this to say ya’ll got Christmas and life all wrong. Wanna know why I will never put someone on blast? Cause I don’t do that whether I like you or not. The Bible doesn’t say don’t judge it says you will be judged with the same measure you judge others. Keep that in mind when you get to the point when you need someone and instead of lending a hand they trash you behind your back. I didn’t see Christmas this year I saw selfishness. My personal Christmas was dropping off toys to a bunch of kids that if I wouldn’t have stopped by would not have gotten shit. You ever pull up to a home and see kids waiting on you cause if you don’t pull up they got nothing? I saw it. It’s sad. You should do more for others than you do for yourself during Christmas and that does not consist of mother, father, children, cousins etc. My family ain’t get no super gifts cause in all honesty they don’t need shit. My mom can do without a chanel white watch this year. It won’t kill her. My dad can do without a $100 bottle of cologne. Trust me he not short cologne and clothes.
I’m not mad at you. People are selfish by nature, but why be a blessing to people that already have? You would rather turn a blinds eye and in the same breath say you love the Lord and God etc. etc. First off, I ain’t shit. Hell I drunk the whole weekend, but I made it appoint to celebrate Christmas as it was intended. I said I would do all of that and not tell anyone. Just play Santa and go home, but when my social networking is filled with kids who honestly look like they didn’t need shit. I don’t have kids, but when I do they will never get more than kids that don’t have. They will remember Christmas in the car with their father handing out gifts. They may not understand at that time, but I will die knowing they knew what Christmas really is not what they want it to be.
