I’m Glad I Am Not In The

I have just finished watching the royal couple’s documentary. I have to say, Bravo. Proud of both of you.

I know that I could never have handled a lifestyle like the one the Royal family has; I would instead carry on in my simple life.

I am proud of both of their say in sharing their honest feelings with the world. If we all got to hear about every Royal family member or somebody that is famous, we all would be shocked.

I once told a friend our family is crazy; her reply got me thinking. If everyone in your neighbourhood put a sign on their lawn as to what they were dealing with, You would be shocked. Trust me; everyone does not have a perfect life.

I know she is right, especially regarding the positive changes I have seen in my lifetime. Acceptance of all mankind. That we are all equal.

This world would be a better place if we all could feel that way. Then again, nothing is perfect.

Opening our minds, the acceptance of change as long as the change is positive in the world we live in. One thing I will never accept is after I shop, I have to be the cashier and bag my items. That is mind bottling,

I know in my heart that no machine can replace a person, machines can break down, and we need people to fix them. On the other hand, I really didn’t like a robot bringing my order to the table at a restaurant.

Those are practical feelings; that kind of not accepting change is normal. People need jobs; we love interaction with others.

COVID did a terrible thing to all of us. Locked in a bubble, ordering everything to our home, no body contact. Wow, two years of that. So when I got back out in the world, I couldn’t wait to see everyone, Smile at everyone, and make new friends. Those are my feelings, how about you,

Yet looking at the Royal couple, the dangers that they endured. For what a story that wasn’t even true. To capture a picture to add whatever headline they wanted to it.

I loved watching that and hearing their side of it. I wish Princes Diana were alive to share hers; many say she knew he was drunk, she got in the car. Do you really think she wanted to die?

Guided to the car, driven away from so much media. Only to crash and not see her children, daughter in laws and grandchildren. We all know she didn’t want to leave this world.

I have come to a conclusion, and why I wrote this, I will walk away from tabloids; I will not be quick to judge others. Most of all, if that were you (sure, the money would be great), I would not want to fear for my or my family’s life.

Great job Prince Harry.

Hoping we can watch more and see what his hopes and dreams are. A real-life story told by people whom so much hate has been written about.

It’s time for a change, not just with the Royals but everyone.

Don’t jump to conclusions; listen and learn.
