Don't sit back and watch the world go by...

Apathy is annoying.

I seem to be coming up against people a lot lately who think that they can't do anything to affect what's happening.

They don't like it but they're not going to do anything to change it.

They follow along with what others are doing and hope for the best.

But the bit that really annoys me - then they whinge when it doesn't happen the way they want.

It causes animosity and conflict because there is a level of anger that exists.

The "I told you so" line that we all baulk at saying, but sometimes it can be the only thing you want to say.

I worry about things. I write letters to the editor. I talk to people. I'm on Twitter. I'm trying to get my ideas about what I care about out there.

We have to care about things. If we don't care then we're just letting things happen to us. We have to fight for what we think or know is right. Not everyone is going to agree with us, but if we fight then we can celebrate when we win or take comfort knowing that we did everything we can, and we're ready to fight another day.

When things don't happen the way I want them to, I keep fighting.

What do you care about? Do you fight for what you think is right?

Or do you sit back and let things happen? That's OK. There isn't anything wrong with that.

But don't complain if you don't get what you want. That's just plain annoying.
