This is an "irk-me" post. And perhaps I am no better than anyone else because, even though this is going into my personal blog, I will still cross post it to Facebook. Am I passing judgement? Yes. No buts. Just yes.
I get bothered when people perform "good deeds" and then discuss it like it is a giant revelation. I'm not condemning someone for doing something kind and helpful for someone else, or for a group of people. But why the "look at me" posts? Why the need to call attention to yourself for simply being kind? What gaps are being filled by social (media) validation? Isn't the deed simply good enough?
Now, this post isn't about people who fundraise for causes dear to their hearts. Those who fundraise aren't calling attention to "look what I did". They are calling attention to "look what WE did". Because it was kindness as a community, therefore, they give thanks to those who made it possible for them.
The Daily Roast is a thought, question, list, or any other mini that doesn't need an entire blog. Thought Flights are here to get you pondering and wondering.
