Blithe: (adj) showing a casual and cheerful indifference
- When does a smile become a smirk?
- When does it transform itself into a sneer?
- And when is a sneer considered to be snide?
Even though it’s easy to misinterpret body language, it is nearly impossible to ignore it.
Do we have a responsibility to make sure that the attitude which precedes our persona is sending off the right signals?
And what does it mean to be blithe?
In my mind’s eye, there are many ideas which are promoted as “positive thinking” which become annoying when they’re offered at the wrong moment.
I’m tired of having people tell me they’re going to pray for me instead of spending thirty more seconds allowing me to share my heart.
I am weary of those who callously toss off the phrase, “It’s all good.”
I find it annoying to be around people who become frustrated if they can’t find their keys, but want to address my health diagnosis by informing me that “God is in control.”
If infuriates me to see pseudo-intellectuals become enraged with bigotry while refusing to lift one finger to personally assist the afflicted.
A blithe spirit comes from a self-righteous heart.
It is the childish representation that “life is going to get better”–just because we say so.
