Words of Wisdom – “The Distrusted Individual” – 7/15/2019

July 15, 2019

“The individual reigns in all their choices? Is it so that a person will find their situation as normal, and such should be left as is? What kind of philosophy is this? What does it create besides a world of distrust? We believe the individual to be in full control, and what about the individual’s own family and friends? Are they not to offer input? Are we, as individuals, soon better off blocking out all criticism, labeling it as ‘negativity’, and viewing ourselves as the only right ones? The individual would be very lonely in their own little habitat of normality. They’d say, ‘What I do is deemed as right only by me’, and be better off not knowing what another thinks on their actions. All this does is create that aforementioned ‘world of distrust’ between the common human. What people call ‘strangers’ could be friends, for every friend had once been a stranger.”

Words of Wisdom – “The Earned Disrespect” – 7/14/2019

“Some will repeat the words, ‘They have disrespected me,’ while others will repeat the words, ‘Respect is earned.’ And I say, ‘If respect is earned, then what about disrespect?’ Disrespect must have a foundation of that which is to be deserved to the proper person who deserves it. Respect is earned, then so should disrespect also be earned. No woman should say, ‘He disrespected me,’ without first thinking, ‘Perhaps I deserved it.’ And then knowing that she deserved it, might bring her peace.”
