There are a LOT of ungrateful people in this world, in this country, in this community. Most people who are always ungrateful for what they have or what people do for them are not going to do well in the real world after high school. These people really don’t appreciate anything until it’s gone, when it’s too late. You HAVE to be thankful for everything. It is just a part of life. God put us all here to be thankful for every beautiful human, animal, tree, and everything else He created. If you are one of those “Negative Nancy” people who are always negative about every situation, never happy, or simply just toxic, fix yourself. Now. Before it’s too late. Don’t bring people down because you are jealous of what they have or what they can do, be thankful you have someone in your life that is successful. Try to turn situations around to make them positive. I wasn’t negative or rude to people when I was diagnosed because I was upset, I had to pave my own path. Unfortunately, I lost some friends along the way. Now, I look back on what they had done to me and now I’m thankful God pushed them out of my life, He knew they were toxic and were not going to benefit me in any way.

BE THANKFUL. For the good. For the bad.

Most people look over and dismiss what people in their lives do for them. Teachers, parents, nurses, bus drivers, coaches, and countless other occupations often get looked over. Teachers work a tremendous amount of time with (mainly) ungrateful students that talk when they are talking and teaching. Nurses get taken for granted, they are there for someone and a lot of people never tell them that they’re appreciated. Bus drivers pick kids up and take them home. They barely hear the words “thank you” or “have a good day.” Coaches are volunteering to teach you something that you’re passionate about. Most people complain about their coaches but honestly if it’s actually that bad then just quit. Now, parents. Your parents have been with you your entire life, and they are probably the most under appreciated people in the world. Obviously, this depends on how the children treat their parents. My siblings and I always thank my mom for what she does for our family. No matter what it is, making dinner, taking us out to eat, buying us stuff that we want, giving us good advice and being a listening ear, and mainly just being a great parent. Some people treat their parents like garbage and it seriously makes me angry. Mom, dad, step-mom, step-dad, or anyone who is a parental figure in your life. Be thankful and respect them.

This is the season for CHANGE. If YOU are one of these negative, ungrateful people, fix yourself. People talk about the drug addicts and gangs being the “bad” people of the world, but really it all roots from the negativity and ungratefulness of our people.

“In this world, you can be anything. Don’t be ungrateful.”

Rant over. Go out there, be thankful for everything. You are way more blessed than you know.

 

Disclaimer: I am not calling anyone out here I am just simply writing about ungrateful people and how you should always be thankful. But if the shoe fits, find a new one and wear it.
