LAWD, I’ve been DYING to use this picture. Chap found it for me and I just wasn’t ready to dig into this topic.
My sista Dionne loves to say that…”Assholes are like opinions, everybody has one…so give me your asshole.” lol It’s true though. People tend to really dole those out freely and willy nilly, like they’re being paid to pontificate. Just because you state a thing, doesn’t mean you need counter points. Sometimes, it’s as simple as getting something off your chest and relieving some inner tension. Yea, yea, yea..I know. With freedom of speech, comes a hidden price. There are indeed repercussions for everything…even those things that are done with the best of intentions. Having said that…onto the slinging of assholes.
You ever meet or talk to someone who has ALL the “right” information? Everything they say is by the book, from a book…or quoted by someone who saw the shit on a book…a long time ago? GEEEZ…you do NOT have to know everything. It is perfectly okay to say “I don’t know”. It’s okay to say…” to each his own”. YES…to EACH his OWN! That means (for the slow babies sitting Indian-style on the floor) that each person has a right to see things how they see them. DEAL how they want to deal…or just be who they want. You can drop a seed and water it…but you can’t shine the light JUST right. It’s not in your control. So, when a person has all of these things that are supposed to go a certain way based on some knowledge learned and their own personal beliefs. Go HEAD with that!
How about the person that said something was one way and when proven to be wrong says, “Oh that’s what I said/meant…” NO you didn’t! Just admit that you were wrong and knew NOTHING…but you didn’t want to look stupid, so you stuck to your guns on something unproven and unresearched, because you’d rather save face. DAMN. It’s OKAY. No one knows it ALL. We’re all students to this universal university. Sitting in tutelage by someone smarter and wiser. Feeling our way through the dark, turning lights on along the way. We all have frailities. There are things about us all that make us the perfectly imperfect creations we are. It’s those weaknesses that put a stamp on our personalities and round us out as individuals. If you know something…fine, pass it on. Righteousness is a virtue of generous nature. You must pass it on to help someone else rise above ignorance, but please don’t make the mistake of of believing you behold the answer to it all.
Maybe you need to see this video I love by a Youtuber who tells it straight no chaser!
