Understanding is an art. And not everyone is an artist. So, the greatest test you face is how you quietly handle those who so boldly mishandled you. This person isn’t your worst enemy, nor is the situation, or a thing. It’s the story in your mind based on assumptions and projected fears or insecurities; just like the lust for power is not rooted in strength but in the depths of darkness.
One’s life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation and compassion. Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.
Ultimately, the fake get in where they fit in but the strong fit where they belong. In this regard, we come to realize that it’s not the people who change. It’s the mask that falls off.
I suggest scientists should stop analyzing animal intelligence and start studying human stupidity. This will probably resolve 80% of the world’s problems. After all, isn’t stupidity knowing the truth, seeing the truth, but still believing the lies? We have stopped thinking for ourselves, and have outsourced that gift.
The anger that erupts when faced with human excesses needs to be reevaluated. One’s anger is that acid that does more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything it is poured onto. Just like gold is tested with fire; man is tested with adversity.
I can explain it to you, but I can’t understand it for you just as there are people who are filled with knowledge, but empty of mercy and love. The victim of mind manipulation does not know that they are the victim. To them, the walls of this prison are invisible and believe themselves to be free. Free yourself to think for yourself.
One should forgive for an apology that was never given because one’s closure should never be tied to a single one of someone’s words. It ought to be dependent upon one’s willingness to let go. After all actions shape our character, and the nature of our actions determines the virtues we possess.
YOU are the artist of your life. Don’t give the paintbrush to anyone else. Use your intelligence to introspect and refuse to follow the conditioning unconsciously. Strength is not about how much you can handle before you break. It is about how much you can handle after you break.
Dirty water, does not stop plants from growing, so don’t let negative words stop your growth.
Move, Grow and Thrive! Be resilient!
