Am I wrong?
A person dies that meant me no good,as to I probably meant nothing to him. Upon hearing the news it didn't phase me,it couldn't have happened to a better person,he was horrible,in a union position and abusing it.Threw me and others under the bus for his own gain,
I don't think it can be regarded as wrong...however, it's certainly not the most right. When this life ends, we are judged by our actions on earth. His will be judged, I assure you. However, we all run across many like him...and the best thing to do, I believe, is smother them in grace. Take whatever they have to give, good or bad, with a smile. Choke off the anger, replace it with humor, and live secure in the thought that you are the better person for it.
My opinion won't make you care more or less about the individual, but. . .
"It couldn't have happened to a better person"
It happens to all of us, good or bad.
I offer this though. During a particularly bad breakup I was given a book of short poems on loss and grief and this one liner stuck with me.
"For anyone who has ever wished me ill. . .today, you got your wish"
I never gain in being gladdened by someone else's loss or pain.
But neither are we built to personally feel the death of those we don't care for.
We have to learn to do that. One of the things I think we were made to do.
Just my opinion
I'm was thinking and I want to write I'm not gladdened by his passing,it just means nothing to me or my life.Then I thought about it more and I can honestly say I'm glad I'll never have to lay eyes on him again.
I'm not a cold person,I just like to live my life without complications,and some people live to complicate your life,he was one of those.
I don't think indifference is wrong, I think it's human in this kind of situation. You can't be expected to conjure up feelings of grief where there are none. I'm sure he had his good side, just like most people -- so I'm also sure that those who knew his good side will do the grieving, and will appreciate not having any fake sympathy thrown their way.
I'm a believer in karma, the universal law of cause and effect. I think this person will be learning some more lessons next time around. Some people do seem to be better off dead, but realize we're all doing our best at any given time, just some people have a longer road ahead than others.

My boyfriend wants me to conform to his rules and is trying to teach me structure and discipline. I don't agree with what it's doing to our relationship or how it is making me feel. It just so happens that I decided to write about it last night- < no self-promotional links> And...

Morally, we understand that judging others is a sin, but is it still a sin when we judge silently?We have been taught that when we let judgment of others roll off our tongue, we have committed a great sin. However, we all have opinions! Some, we keep in our heads and to ourselves. ...

I was reading a threat started a while ago (and since then discontinued) about 'the ideal human' and was intrigued by the responses. I really enjoyed the topic and was wondering what kind of input some of you hubbers have as far as virtues are concerned.Do you believe you are a good person? If so,...
