Today’s Word: Dogmatic

Over the years, especially since leaving my ex husband, I’ve learnt to be ‘dogmatic.’ Prior to that, I was living in a lull of no opinions, being naive to the world, and accepting that my life was nothing more than existing. I have learnt to be passionate, that is ‘dogmatic,’ about equality… that all people in love should be allow to marry, that we should all have equal pay for the same work and hours worked, that every child gets to learn in an education system that allows their brain to decipher the codes of meaning and understanding that their learning ability allows, that we treat people the way we want to be treated, that children are little people and if they ask a question, no matter how old they are, they are entitled to know the true answer and not be lied to; and that we are all entitled to be loved and cared for.

But today… I have nothing to be dogmatic about….hmmm… however that might change later in the night… I have a potential chance meeting with someone who I am really about to lose my stack with after some recent rudeness (that has been on-going in one form or another for about 18 months now), and what was said recently was the last straw. However, I will say that I am grateful to all those who have said ‘yes’ today to helping me out in a couple of weeks for their generosity and kindness.

I’ll keep you posted 🙂
