“Tell me sir if you will, where in the Bible does it state that it’s ok to judge others based purely on assumption? Can you see now who is the lesser evil between the two?” ― Sofea Shah From the very start of our our conception the dreams and implications of the ways of another…
That is something that isn’t really talked about to much. We are taught that dreams aren’t meant to be having. That if we stick to the course that was set out for us that we will achieve succcess. Who determines how success is defined for you. We have dissected everything down to its most literal sense and try to suppress any individuality.
My eyes are now focused on those that make their way in front of me. My reflection only matters in their eyes no longer my own. Only I can truly know who I am on the inside for I am bestowed that pleasure. My work and focus now is to help others see the lady I have become and maybe in time help others find their way.
The feeling of never amounting to anything now became her centre. If her parents were embarassed of who she was then she should be too. Destined to never hold her chin up she was determined to not let them see what they did to her. It was the only satisfaction she got. Be hard enough so they don’t know how badly cracked you truly are. Believe and trust nobody, including herself.
I used to sit there for so long and listen to those that I love talk down to me like I was never going to amount to anything. A waste of life those closest to me said. A constant disappointment. It became far easier to believe those lies then to fight against the surge of ignorance bound my way. When you stop believing in yourself and what could possibly be you find yourself in a very dangerous, toxic place.
We aren’t bad people. You loved us once. Now I will tell you the last peace that crushes my soul and hopefully I can experience some release.
Every thing we do we are being conditioned on how we feel and how to act. We look to our leaders for guidance but in this day and age even our leaders are those that we shouldn’t be taking any guidance from. Or should we?
The way we treat each other. I have experienced more bullying and more insults in my adult years then in any other time combined. This is what my child sees. This is what he is absorbing. The malicious intent of a few. Negativity breeds like wildfire and it infects our inner core.
This just seems to be a general circus act made for the amusement of all our foreign neighbours. Why would anybody take Canada seriously when this is our portrayal to the World. Political or not we will remain in a country divided in turmoil until we truly do become the land of the free and listen to those that we share this country with. We all have a voice we shouldn’t be affraid to use it. A country united is truly the only way to live where we can all be happy.
Our children can never live as free as they used to. Social norms, media and technology will never allow for that to happen again. Children just aren’t given enough time to enjoy being kids. It’s like we want that period of our lives to be over faster. We want to act like we know more than everybody around us even though or time on Earth is a mere fraction of our potential.
