At some point, we all have to take a stand for what we believe in. At some point we all have to stand up and defend the things that we love. At some point, we all have to do something to protect our happiness.
Perhaps I do not have the right to lecture anyone. Who am I anyway? I’m just this socially-awkward, hopelessly introverted girl who would rather spend time alone in a tent pitched in the middle of nowhere than sit in a crowded bar and sip drinks that costs an arm and a leg. I am not an expert nor a veteran in this matter. I am not even experienced. I am just a nobody who hates everyone who ruins my happiness.
Yes, I am looking at you! You people who goes to the mountain, pitch your tent and destroy everyone else’s peace of mind with your loud, boisterous partying. You who leaves your filthy trash the same way you leave your dignity when you get drunk. You who doesn’t respect the world around you. You who doesn’t seem to understand that some of us are out there because we want to get away from your kind. I hate the whole lot of you.
Why do you have to go up there if you only want to party? Why don’t you go back to your bars and crowded discos and stay there?
Yes, I am judging you. You are selfish people who only think of yourselves. You are self-entitled spoiled brats who never truly understands what freedom means. You are ignorant people who keep using the line, “it’s a democratic country!” Democracy doesn’t give you the right to destroy the world.
You party all night with your loud, tasteless music and in the morning, you leave your trash like the whole place is a dumpsite. You should be buried where you partied.
If we want your noise and your trash, we will stay in the city. We took the time to hike out there to breathe fresh air, to see the stars and relax.
Nobody owns the mountain but everyone who goes there must learn to protect it and respect it. If you can’t do something so simple, then you do not belong there.
Here, let me give you a few tips on what to do to truly enjoy nature.
1. Clean As You Go. The world is not your trash bin. Don’t leave your trash anywhere. Put it in your pocket or in your bag. Bring it back with you and dispose it properly. Do this wherever you go.
2. Stop screaming at each other especially if you are only a few feet apart. I assume you are civilized individuals, so act like one.
3. Respect other hikers|mountaineers|campers. Again, some people climb mountains not only to challenge themselves but to relax and enjoy some peace of mind. Try not to get in anyone’s way. If you want music, there is such a thing as earphones.
4. Avoid liquors. Thing is, it is not safe. No matter what your guidebooks might say, the mountain is not without risk. Do not underestimate the mountain, it will not bow down to you. It is best to keep a clear head when you are outdoors. Even if you are hiking on a clear day, remain sober. Remember that trails can change and what appears to be a simple trail can easily turn deadly even when you’re not drunk.
5. Sit down, shut up, look at the world around you. Take it all in. Appreciate what you see then perhaps you will understand why it is important for us to preserve what little bit of nature we have left.
You see, we only have one planet and your kind keeps ruining it. Isn’t it enough that we havr already destroyed the lowlands with our pollution and now you have to go up there and destroy the mountains too?
We all have that one place that makes us happy. We all have places that we are most comfortable at. We all have that one place we would choose over the others if we are given the choice. For some of us, the middle of nowhere surrounded by trees, the view of the stars and the fresh mountain air are what makes us happy.
