I was watching a programme on TV yesterday and during the break I saw an advert that really triggered something in me. It was about hydrating your children with some chemical concoction that was apparently better than water! This made me swallow hard – very hard!!!
WHAT?!? HOW?!? WHY?!?
I understand companies wanting to sell their products. BUT:
How brainwashed are we as a society?!? How indifferent are we?!? We let this kind of thing wash over us and think this is something we should do.
It made me think about how many people I know that follow the adverts without challenging them in any way. If it is on TV someone else has scrutinised it and so it is okay.
How long is this going to go on? Wake up, please! Think about what you are doing to yourself, to your children, to your family, to your pets, to this planet!!! Wake up and stop following others so blindly!
Start thinking for yourself! This is so important!!! Even it this means that your friends and family think you have gone a bit funny or even crazy! Please start thinking for yourself!!! Just because people around you do it, use it, say it, live it, doesn't make it right! Start really scrutinising what you are told, what you read, what you see on TV! If you do this every time, you look into it, you read up on it, you do research on it, then you are really looking after yourself and your family. And personally, I think that is the way ahead. Be the black sheep, not the blind follower!!!
