seriously america?

Okay, so, I don't have much time because I have to leave for work soon, BUT I have something to say. I'm not much of a TV watcher. Amazing Race is about the only thing I watch anymore, but yesterday I was bored, so after I made lunch I was looking around the internet and saw that "The Bachelor" had a new season and the first episode was up. I've never really watched much of this show, but I thought I'd check it out.


I sat there and watched as all these women fought over this one man who isn't even sure he wants to be with any of them. This is very saddening to me. What's even worse is that we all love to watch this. It's addicting. I could probably watch the whole season, even though it drives me absolutely insane! At the end of the first episode, he "chose" 20 out of the 30 women. The ten women that left were crying, and in their interviews said all they wanted was to be loved.


You are loved!

I wanted to scream this over and over at the screen like they would hear me. GOD LOVES YOU and you don't need this junk! One couple out of the 14 seasons of the Bachelor has actually gotten married. ONE.

Why do we love to watch this trash? Why do I love to watch it?

Don't be deceived ladies. God loves you and there's a man out there who actually deserves you and will treat you right. A man who doesn't need to have 30 women to choose from. You don't need to go on a reality show and embarrass yourself in front of the entire country to try and find "love."

And the other thing that infuriates me is the fact that I know that some of those women were probably only chosen to add to the drama. Some women were probably chosen just so that America could make fun of them, for example, the girl with fangs who thinks she's a vampire.

I don't get it.

I don't get how these women can watch him kiss and hold and date 19 other women and think that he actually cares for them. And it's the same way with that other show, The Bachelorette.

We are so wrapped up in the fact that we want to be loved by someone that we forget that God already loves us and pursues us EVERY DAY. Or is it just that we don't know what love is?

That is my rant for the day. What makes you angry?


  1. nice blog aubs. totally agree.
    the thing that makes me angry is north america and our perception of ourselves that is us being better than everyone. not a single slice of humble pie is eaten by probably 90%. they dont get the fact that we're one of the if not the richest country in the world. if we make more than a dollar a day, we are richer than 90% of the world. thats what makes me mad.

  2. The fact that I fail everyday. That's what makes me angry. but what makes me happy is that He is faithful even when we are not. God loves men too!
