I do not make my living as a male model.
Don’t have the height, the looks or the metro-sexual vibe needed to look good in print.
There is a reason why I write.
The creative shit is where I make up on the points.
I had a friend once tell me something that really stroked my ego, and to this day, I still wonder if she was just blowing smoke up my ass.
She said I was like that hot chick that didn’t know she was hot.
Compliments are both a good thing and a bad thing.
It is nice to be on a pedestal every now and then.
Just don’t get used to it.
Stay on the pedestal for too long and your head inflates and then the bad stuff happens.
You begin shitting on people, maybe you start a blog.
That one hits a little close to home.
Sometimes, I knock myself off of the pedestal without anyone elses help.
Kind of like a few seconds of daylight and then its back to the coal mines.
And if compliments are on one end of te spectrum, then insults are on the other end.
You can disagree with me all you like, but I believe that insults should have a recommended daily allowance as well.
You got a Ying, you gotta have a Yang.
I got into a mini FB disagreement with someone who posted this paragraph that basically said that no matter who or what you are, you are beautiful, no matter what.
The phrasing was something you would see scribbled on a brown paper book cover from elementary school.
I made the comment that I disagreed and some people are ugly as sin.
And the argument was on.
Aside from it being a snide comment, I actually meant it.
I believe in being positive, but you should keep it in the realm of reality.
Its like school now days.
At graduation, everyone wins something.
You can be a slug on a goddam rock and win an award at an elementary school graduation.
And that is sooooooo wrong.
I know the self esteem theories behind it all, I just disagree with it.
Children raised without a solid understanding that winning something you have to work hard at and if not, you fail, grow up to believe that things must be given to them without achievement.
The occupy movement is pretty full of this mental sludge.
Because when a child is raised with this false view of how the world works all thru school, they enter the workforce expecting the same societal hand holding and many break.
Mental/emotional breaks can take a long time to recover from in some cases.
By the way, that whole concept is not from a psychology book, it just an opinion.
I happen to know of a Child/Family counselor, PHD and all, that years ago told me that my theories on child rearing were potentially harmful.
I later found out that his 15 year old had been in rehab.
My 16 year old is an honor student, and my 22 year old has an incredible job.
So clutch your PHD in either hand, pucker up and bite my ass.
Evidently, I am not wrong.
I think the problem has a lot to do with people waiting for other people to handle things for them.
Got an issue? Truly search your own head for the answer before you throw up your hands and hand the reigns to someone else.
Hard not to rave more right now without going political.
and, no, I don’t consider the occupy movement political.
They would have to be a little more on the ball mentally to do that.
Which means their just annoying.
But, hey, at least they got an award at their elementary school graduation.
