Are You Sure It's That?

Words fascinate me, I love messing with them, and I really love when someone coins or uses a phrase that Ican apply to stuff...I will think, use and laugh about it until I am tired of it...and there is one that has exhausted me lately...but I am moving slowly today so hang in there...
One I really love is one my eldest son uses, when he is not feeling something he will say, 'Don't cosign on the madness'...I LOVE that, it speaks volumes and is really great advice in a nice, small package...
But the one that has me thinking and pondering is....
Hater or Hating...
When that first came from the rap world or the NBA, which it seems so many cool phrases come from,
I said okay...well then...
But lately I see it used to describe situations that to me has nothing to do with anything remotely tied to hating (jealousy)...
Which leads me to ask, 'Are You Sure it's That?'
It seems that when full grown people use it...
It's because someone hasn't agreed with them,
Doesn't want into their agenda,
Is simply not buying what they are selling,
Not cosigning on their madness,
And as soon as that occurs then the person is labeled a 'Hater' or deemed to be 'Hating'...
What in the world happened to plain old, difference of opinion or do your thing and allow me to do mine...
When in the world did we get to the place when anytime someone isn't in to us,
Doesn't agree with us,
Can't see it our way,
They have to be hating...
It probably isn't that deep...
Or they may be saving your feelings by not telling you why they really aren't,
Fooling up with you...
Because what I have noticed is that the first people who say someone is hating,
Are often people who have so much going on in a negative way that people just don't want to be caught up or out like that,
Which leaves me to guess it's easier and more palatable to think someone is....
Hating...
Than to look inside and accept that it just might be something else....
They just might not be cosigning on your madness...
Hmmm....

Blessings,

You know I love to cosign, so I'll cosign on this post and say that I love the phrase "don't cosign on that madness." :-) Also, I agree with you, a lot of people running around here talking about folks hating on them got it twisted...

Love it.

I think it goes to show just how shallow this world really is. It would seem people would stop and think about what their words at least after they said it.

JC Martin said...

I am not a person of the norm...so I very rarely if ever cosign. I am more like your son, "Don't cosign on the madness!" Brilliant!!
