How much self-control do you have and do you realize that self-control is power? Did you know that when you fail to use it by popping off, voicing your useless opinion or stating the obvious, you are actually giving up your power? Now don’t get me wrong, there are times when you have to engage productively to create change as with Human/LGBT/Animal and Senior rights or other causes for the environment or other. But notice the word “productively”.
Due in part to social media which has become a platform for the ignorant, the angry, fame whores, the weak and attention seekers, we are seeing the onslaught of ugly spewed ad nauseum daily. Everyone wants to throw in their 2 cents typically revealing the personal dysfunctional issues, which they have clearly failed to address. As a Spiritual Life Strategist and wellness counselor, its a mine field for me. I see all the souls I could help if only they were willing. Sadly in most cases they enjoy their vitriol or mommy damage way too much to ever heal it. In fact most of these who behave badly feed from it. They need it like they need breath never realizing how clearly others see their pain or personal demons.
Restraint is an art form and if people would just take a ten count pause and ask one simple question, “How can I ADD something useful to this conversation?” vs “How can show my arrogance and stupidity right now?” the world would vastly improve. As one grows older you realize some things will not change with words, that words are useless and a waste of energy. Actions speak louder than words. Take your power back and measure whether your words and behavior contribute something valuable or simply add to the cesspool of stupid. ~Ariaa Jaeger Ariaa.com (if you want to heal it, get in touch with me.)
