Shut Up and Sit Down Before I Make You.

I’m annoyed.

Annoyed with a woman that represents a breed of women. This woman is the self proclaimed bored housewife. She is not poverty stricken. She is not abused. She is not unloved. She is not shackled to the pipes in her basement. She is just simply bored.

I’m annoyed by the way she blames her husband and children for her boredom.

I’m annoyed with the way she carries herself as the victim.

I’m annoyed with the negative words she uses to describe motherhood and marriage.

I’m annoyed with the way she pushes her misery onto others in the hopes of finding miserable company. I want to yell, “SHUT UP AND SIT DOWN BEFORE I MAKE YOU!

Yes, I agree that there are downs that come along with the ups of motherhood. Yes, marriage is hard work. Yes, making your dreams come true takes a bit of elbow grease. But I’ll have to disagree that everything that is wrong in the life of a woman is the fault of her children and husband. I’ll have to disagree that happiness in a marriage is the sole responsibility of your spouse. I’ll have to disagree that motherhood closes a door to achieving your dreams.

I am annoyed that she refuses to see that she is to blame for her boredom.

I’m  annoyed that she turns her back on being an active role model for her children.

I’m annoyed with the attitude that she is quick to vomit onto others but will not take responsibility for her attitude, her legacy or her destiny.

“Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different.”
– Katherine Mansfield

I’m annoyed. So grow up or shut up.
