Hear Ye! Hear Ye! I Shall Now Explain in Words Who I Am and What I Stand For: Please Be Seated and Read
Love Me or Hate Me I Will Not Be Led by Judgments
My life consists of a lot of reflections on my part. I don’t know if I’m the only one who does this on a constant basis, because I’m sure we all have times of reflection. However, I often wonder if I’m the only one who feels the need to write out my thoughts? Am I the only person who cannot control that part of themselves that wants to share, to be known, to be understood? I know I’m not, but who is brave enough to share these things. Well, I am, and I’m sorry if that offends people. I’m somewhat regretful if that makes some judge me as a narcissist. Maybe, some of you think it’s inappropriate to share these things; that I should think more of my children reading them. I can assure you, the only one that would read my things is my very intelligent, highly skillful writer within her own right; my daughter, she is fifteen, and as she puts in opinions sometimes that I do not agree with, I do appreciate her thoughts on my writing. I can also assure you; she is most proud of her mom for who she is, and is not at all thrown by my open and honest demeanor. I have raised her to speak her mind on things she is passionate about, and not be afraid to do so. And yes, I have also taught her that sometimes it’s better to have no opinion at all if the subject matter has no interest to her.
Do You Need to Know More?
I’m explaining this after a comment I received a while back that made me think about why some people just don’t get me. Truthfully, I still don’t get the complete me, but what I do get is that I’m learning, and I love who I have become, and who I am. I love that I can be so open. I feel free when I write this way. I don’t feel held down and embarrassed by my personality. I am thankful that my life journey has taught me to be myself in a way that is uninhibited to the world in a sense. I want people to know me. I would like people from all over the world to know me, to like me, to be my friend. I want to build bridges. I want others to want to build bridges. I want peace and unity. I have written about this before. Most of all, I think I want people to throw away egos and relax enough to be the person they see within themselves. It would be great if hate was thrown out of the equation of life, and opportunities to learn about other cultures and religions become a peaceful friendship with all, instead of viewed as divisions among us. We are all humans. We may not believe in the same story of God, hell; some of us may not even believe in God; nevertheless, is that a reason to stay closed minded? Be brave enough to listen to each other, and strong enough to accept others' views but keep your own. And please get rid of the hate.
When I think over these things that hold us down, that hold us in earthly purgatory in a sense. I say to myself, “but it is so simple to correct our problems.” I mean I really know it isn’t going to be that easy, but it could be. We could make a start to try to get everyone on the same wavelength of thought. We can do this with kindness, with open ears to others, but without harsh opinions. Actually, we can do this with considerate questions to things we don’t understand. Yes, I know that I am dreaming, but there is nothing wrong with being a dreamer is there?
My Plea to the American People - Make the Right Choice
Adding My Views on the Presidential Race: Why... Yes I Am
Now, without really wanting to, I will discuss politics; moreover, the Presidential election. I have pondered many times about this, and as I don’t particularly care for politics or politicians, I am not blind as to the one that shares a similar vision as mine, and no, it is not Donald Trump. It is not Hilary Clinton; it is indeed the man who has fought for the common people’s rights for more than twenty years now in the Congress. I’m talking, of course, about Bernie Sanders.
I want people of America to think for themselves, to grab some kind of individual intuitiveness of their own without feeding into a celebrity popularity contest. Let’s face it; Trump has no attributes to share on what it is like to struggle. Are we going to hand over the reins to someone who has no compassion for the people he will rule? The real people he will rule over; the hard-working families that struggle because of him. Basically, because of big corporations he himself is a part of, getting richer off the middle class and poor. Come on people…. think! This man has no way of knowing the struggles of life and therefore, will not be able to help us. He will only help his kind. That’s all!
Wrapping It Up With a Purpose
To get back to my initial reason for writing this, and that was, to explain why I choose to be open-minded, opinionated, and truthful. I decided on an idea to show some of my Facebook posts from today. Today, I posted about life and politics, which is why I mentioned both in this hub. The pictures scattered around on this hub is from my Facebook posts today. I hope everyone who stops by to read this gets my purpose and enjoys the read, but most of all gets the point. I encourage you to watch the political videos as well. Thanks for reading!
What do you think...
about this hub in a whole?
