My Two PenniesI never like to see someone hating on the country they live in. Australia sure does have it's downs, but I suppose it's the same as any country. I suppose I heavily believe that there's an upside to every downside and if you can't find it, you haven't looked hard enough.
I'd like to begin by saying that it's perfectly fine if you have a different opinion to my own, I don't mean to hurt or offend anyone in anything I say. I'd also like to hear your thoughts on what I have to say.
I was born here and live in a small town in WA. some of the people are a bit nasty sometimes, but the same goes everywhere. I'm not a patriot but I love where I live and there is some beautiful scenery on our humble continent.
I've read that some people have trouble communicating with other Australians. That I can agree on. Some people just like their own space in public. I get weirded out by people who spontaneously combust into conversation on my daily commute to work because i just enjoy the ride. It's my relaxing time. Whilst there are the fair share of stupid in Australia, there are some incredibly intelligent too. Saying that ALL Australians are dumb drunkards is just as rude as a nasty remark made about any other culture or country. There are intelligent people here, and there is some truly gorgeous scenery. Add that to the crazy array of weather we get all around the country and you have almost every single type of terrain in the world all wrapped up into one continent! Isn't that cool?
I guess what I'm trying to make you get out of this is that Australia isn't such a bad place to be. You could be living in a much worse condition than you are now, doing something a lot worse with people who are a lot worse than us. Just enjoy what you have.
