Proportional encounters

Life is full of contradictions; whether we like it or not… There’s always the big and there’s the small; there’s the high and surely the low…  yet what really amazes me are the double standards…Yes, the fact that it’s alright for someone to think or to do something; yet it is not for someone else…   That happens when people really think high of themselves; I mean higher than they should think… Logically, the intolerable initiative  that it’s OK for to insult B, but it’s NOT OK for B to insult A. Of course, B and A can be replaced with many different races, religions, etc.

We are thoughtful drivers, others in traffic are mere jerks; or; Men are Jerks, Women are victims; and my favorite; females checking a man’s butt is acceptable, males doing the same will be labeled as pigs! Men having females friends are out of the line; women sleep with their exes is insecurity! apparently it’s a never ending list, and sometimes it’s better to let go… not to go coco.

Imagine a girl approaches you and says that her friend would like to meet you (what is more thrilling than that)? On the other hand, if your male friend approaches a girl and tells her that you want to meet her, she might just be turned off by your lack of confidence and lack of ability to approach her directly by yourself.

When Joseph Stalin said “One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic” he was talking about the two types of people in life; leaders and followers… to him cattle is just a number… even when I thought I could role that out of this equation; I failed… both are human beings; yet labeled once more!

When I thought I could discuss this; I proved myself wrong; it’s our nature I believe (to a certain degree), but sometimes with some it’s just too much… Yes, I agree a person should believe in himself and posses a high self esteem; but not to extreme degrees cause that’s not even arrogance; but a plain sickness.

So, stay healthy 😉

No matter where we are; and no matter where we end up to be… it will always be five o’clock somewhere… despite the fact that we have time zones… Irony? or another contradiction?

Lead the way; be the change

“Be the change you want to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi

A moment of truth; I have always given people my opinions and always asked them to keep the faith and never let go of whatever they pursued. The problem is that I always focused on them, and left myself out. Instead of changing their beliefs and looking after them achieving their dreams; I should have worked on my flaws, fix my past mistakes, face my fears, and pursue my dreams. In other words be the change I want to see.

To all whom I harmed intentionally or not; I am sorry. To all whom I lied to, I apologize. To whom I wasn’t up to their expectations accept my sincere remorse.

Now back to reality; having the capability to admit to your faults and mistakes isn’t as easy as we read or heard… It’s one of the hardest things I ever came across; it’s like stopping in the middle of the road and go “what the hell have I been doing” and “ok, let’s cut the crap and start with business” with all the criticism and put downs; it is worth it.

so, changing the world, start from one’s self; it all starts from within… not by watching the news, but by making them, and not by sitting on that corner begging for “change” but by making the big bucks.

And finally; make sure you correct your faults before casting the first stone, and make sure you don’t do mistakes and advice others to prevent making them. Lead the way, by example, be the way you want see the society as; don’t let the society sees you how it wants, that’s the meaning of being a pioneer.
