Projecting Expectations Upon Others is Not Conducive to Self Improvement

 Experience in life is a great teacher.... I historically had a bad habit of wanting for others-what they did not want for themselves. It sucked. I was always trying to help them self improve, exhausting myself trying to show them, and judging them for not measuring up to my expectations of what they should be doing with their lives.... and that was decades ago....because in life--we only have power over ourselves. We cannot change the behaviors of people. We can provide information and pray that they self adjust; but we cannot dictate, we cannot change them, and we certainly cannot force the to do what our idea of their world should be. That is why our government tried to create laws, regulations, and guidance for citizens to abide by in an effort to cultivate a civilized society in this social experiment we call life.... 

The most simple things in life have become the most cumbersome tasks of survival.... caring for ourselves, our homes, and our lives has become overwhelming in a world gone from the basics. What has been stolen in today's world is the simple freedom and independence of simply breathing and doing what needs done...between the zillion little things everyone else is expecting.....as we forge through our lives... 

No matter where we live; what our status; what our religious or political views; or anything--we still must take time to smell the roses while battling the nosey neighbors who continue to project their expectations upon us; battle the micro government agents who sustain their jobs driving up and down the streets bossing us around; and we must battle the most corrupt government system on the globe which thrives off of using us every which way but loose as their quota....no matter what walk of life we come from in the equation. 

Focus....where shall we begin and end. 

How do we have a "good life' and what defines it are a couple of great questions.... living to measure up to everyone else's (closeted) inclinations of our world is a joke. Doing the right this is expected. Making mistakes could get you imprisoned. Having values for self and family are becoming a lost commodity in the game of survival. Enjoying something intrinisic versus materialistic is questionable. People are simply too busy jumping on the bandwagon to interrupt the lives of others while failing to mow their own lawns...It all has created such a hustle and bustle world that divisively abuses the community that basically needs eachother at the end of the day. It's all a big billowing smoke cloud.....that benefits the governmental agents and their paychecks.... 

Boy oh boy--doesn't that one sound like a wack job...? Haha....it's not paranoia; it's reality. Be an obedient, standardized American citizen; or be abused by a corrupt, divisive world......unity? Rainbow flags? Status quos.... ughs....yaddy, yah, yah... 

American's will continue to be used as pawns until they unite to disrupt all the hogwash that violates their lives. The end. So, as far as wasting away a lifetime running around chasing your tail worrying about all this chaos...find zen...find peace...find your own quality of life, take care of your own, be a good human being, and definitely escape all the games portrayed upon your existence. Stop worrying about what your neighbor is "not doing" and start offering neighborly help if you do give a damn. Use it as an opportunity to build a sense of community instead of being a warrior for the government. Quit staring out your windows emphatically overwhelming your sense of what should be with all these rules--and start transforming your community by offering a helping hand or a reminder to your neighbors. Don't create barriers of communication by calling in the government agents to defend silly crap. Use your blue words to talk, to communicate, to be a good neighbor. 

 

Yes; I am fully aware of all the negative community things that require police and government engagement...but quit protecting job security of those folks when you can improve the quality of life for not only yourself but many others...the government is so dependent on your ignorance to COMMUNITY BUILDING.....that you play right into their hands. SMH..... You give them their governmental paychecks....and then you increase the need by being too intimidated to do anything but call upon them at every corner..... and your city is almost bankrupt from all the settlements, losses, and abuses...nothing gained or learned from it yet? SMH....CHANGE FROM INSIDE YOU.................that's all. 

 

It's a Skippity Doo Dah Day............
