Good afternoon, all you lovely people! I know it has been a while but please bear with me. The last few weeks have not been the best for me. Since returning to my small island after living in the Netherlands for a while, I have been dealing with a lot of ignorance and nonsense. One of these days I will eventually come around to talking about it a little, but for now, I need some more time to stew in my thoughts.
Honestly, I have been asking myself a few questions as of late, but so far I do not have any answers for why some people behave or think the way they do. It baffles me how some people refuse to accept the truth when they hear it. They would prefer hearing and believing a bold face lie or a ridiculous rumour than the truth. They adamantly refuse to hear the truth that comes straight from the horse’s mouth.
Now lo and behold, the horse has become a liar!
Furthermore, why are some people so interested in my business and my life? They are so much more interested in my life more so than I am. Can we not let each other be? Life is already hard enough as it is to have someone all up in your business and talking behind your back.
My final question is why are people so ignorant to believe that just because a woman goes by a man’s house it means she is going there for sex? Do a man and woman’s relation always have to revolve around sex? Can it not be friendly? Can a man and woman not just be friends and hang out sometimes? Maybe for a small island like Saba that may be the mentality, I am not sure, but that is definitely not the mentality for me.
At this point, I am frustrated and beyond tired of this nonsense. I am so tired that I am considering possibly returning to the Netherlands. I feel a little bit guilty thinking in this manner because the whole reason why I returned to Saba was so that I could take care of my ageing parents. However, the way things are going I just might return. So much nonsense has happened in the four months I have been living on the island than the whole eight years and four months I have been living in the Netherlands. It is so ridiculous!
So, what are your thoughts? Let me know in the comment section below.
