Funny how in society these days words like, “honesty”, “loyalty”, “respect”, “peace” and “love”. When it suits them or to showcase a variety of well learned manners and oh so perfectly instilled moral. I’ll admit, I’m not perfect, if anything I am my own worst critic because I know my flaws, I know my truth and I know where my demons lay. Well before dinosaurs existed I realised my soul was to old for this world and I would always be out of place.
And, that’s OK👌
It’s so ironic, that the people who are the first to throw judgement are the ones who live in the biggest, tallest glass houses. When deep down, behind that fancy $1000 dollar suit and $70 lipstick and face painted on like a well paid clown, they throw around words like “not good enough, lazy, fat, ugly, stupid, fag, dyke, bible basher, terrorist, bad parent, nerd, loser, you should be ashamed, you don’t try hard enough”. In this century FAKE has become REAL. What you see on social media is the 50th attempt at the “perfect selfie”. I’m guilty of that too!!! Honestly, the list of the negative words we speak, think and inadvertently feel is endless. We have been fooled to believe that to get praise and approval, a certain persona is required. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for change and self-love in the right direction. Feeling sexy, you go girl/boy friend you do you. Feeling like being holistic and changing your diet to vegan, you shot that wheatgrass. Want to change your religion because you need to find more peace somewhere else, GO FOR IT!!!
Look, I had my kids at a fairly young age. Before them I had HUGE breasts and I swore by the sun the moon and all the stars in between that ONE DAY (haha) I would fix them. Well, 2 kids later I had them done. I loved them, still do, probably fix them again once I have saved up enough money and have 2 more kids. So judge me! Often though, I’ve found that if you don’t fit into that mold or “so trending right now” vibe people will take your “positive ” energy and turn your self love into self loathing. Now don’t quote me on this but in my humble opinion and oh so many years of life experiences I have come to learn that people tend to project alot of their own insecurities onto others. Human preservation. As a way to minimise their insecurities and amplify their need for acceptance. We all just want to be loved and accepted. Human nature.
Of course, I could rant on and this could come across sounding very posh and rather royal with bells, whistles and a great fake boobs to boot. All I am trying to say is the classic childhood rhyme “Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me”, works well in the naive mind of a infant child. These days anxiety, depression, suicide and hate starts to grow as early as 4, 5,6 years of age. Words do hurt, the can hurt and they obviously are hurting our world.
Think before you speak.
