Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say (God's Word)

Miranda Rights:



2. Anything you say will be held against you in a court of law.




Proverbs 18:21 (NKJV)



21. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it’s fruit.


Medical science has proven that you are what you eat. So, if you eat rotten apples, what are you going to be? Sick!


The same thing is true with the words you speak. Even just one spoken word can change your life for the better or worse.

You choose for the better or for worse with the words that you speak.

Have you ever talked your way into trouble? Or spoke something negative into in existence?

This is why we must say what the Word of God says. That is what we should be speaking. God’s Word has a solution to every challenge we can face in this lifetime. So we must speak the SOLUTION!

SHOUTOUT THURSDAY: BLOGGERS UNITED

Today's Shoutout is 2 Bubbly Blackgirl
Check Out Getting Over It


The answers to life inquiries manifests itself in the most unexpected forms. While we can surely seek them out, they’re better received when they reveal themselves, naturally.




Everything we go through in life is a part of a larger journey, that requires us to endure certain parts so that we may grow into better beings. Before we walked we first crawled. We could not ride a bike, without first learning with training wheels, and a helmet, and kneepads.



Such is the same for relationships. No one wakes up one day Married, and or magically with the “Man of their Dreams”. Nor do they abruptly go from a break up to quickly being “Over It!” Hopefully, in due time they will get to that point, where they’ve successfully and happily moved on, but such is not a process that can happen overnight.



I’ve attempted to just cut things off with the Ex. To go cold turkey, and not take his calls or just simply not see him. Besides, everyone has told me to just cut him off completely. I’d heard their stories about how they’d gotten over and moved on from their Infamous Ex(es). The recurring theme had been that one day they had just had enough, and voila they were soon on to the next.



But no one tells of the days before, of cried tears and pathetic wishes on shooting stars. No one utters the longings felt for loves now past. No one tells of the journey that led up to that moment of “Enough. I’m over it.”



Sometime ago, the most random person gave me the best advice about how to deal with the awkward relationship I now have with my Ex. Her words, encouraged me to let things play out between us as they are. Wait, before you holler STUPID, from the tips of your tongue, here’s why.



She confirmed that I would get to that point where I’m fed up or just tired of the back and forth, but the abrupt cut off, only inspires more of the merry-go-round. Instead, she recommended that I let this “quasi” relationship, run its course. The course would get me to that breaking point. And that’s when it will be over.



Surprisingly (or not), I can’t help but to agree with her.



So, instead of fighting the wave, I went along with it. I enjoyed the beautiful moments we shared, such as quiet walks or weekend breakfasts. Even the nights spent together. Instead of fighting in my head, “Where’s this going?” “Why doesn’t he want me back?” I just relaxed and enjoyed it all.



Shortly after, my moment came. Followed by the point where I just couldn’t do it anymore, and the feeling of another tear rolling down my cheek angered me. The thought of telling another, “I HATE MY EX Story”, though, made me laugh. It got to the point where I could no longer be mad at him, but instead at myself for enabling him…Yep, that was the icing of my moment and the motivation I needed to strengthen myself to getting over it.

SHOUTOUT THURSDAY: BLOGGERS UNITED

2day is the first of my Thursday SHOUTOUTS
brought 2 you by way of BLOGGERSUNITED

Jasmine is a very insightful writer who offers you creative writing that's funny, intellectual, and very thought provoking. She is very versatile. Her is 1 of her post that I found interesting.


The Thrill Of The Chase http://eyekandee05.wordpress.com/

The thought of wanting what you can’t have is what adds fuel to our fire. Is it that you really want what you are seeking so desperately, simply because you can’t have it? Some of us operate this way. I can remember a time myself where I wanted to be with a certain someone to where it consumed my thoughts day and night. I stopped at nothing. Every trick and tactic you can think of; I did. And yet, it got me nowhere. It was only after I realized I was driving myself insane did I stop.  It took absolutely no time for him to come knocking on my door trying to get back in once he figured out I had moved on. I ended up going back simply because I had wanted the relationship to work for so long, or so I thought. To be honest, I was completely miserable! I was in a place where my heart wasn’t and I’m not the type of person to fake it till I make it, so I bounced…I guess it was just the thrill of the chase (rejection).

Live Your Life For you: Understanding Ethical Relativsm



I’m 30yrs old now and I’d have to say

that I pretty much know what’s best for me by now. I’m not implying that I know everything, but I’ll be the judge of me and you be the judge of you.

I have absolutely no right to judge your beliefs and you have no right to judge mine.

What’s the point!

All beliefs and ethics are “relative” anyway!

I drink this Henny because I feel it’s what I want to do! Don’t judge me! Even if you believe its wrong…… Which one of us is right anyway? What you can’t handle might be fine for me.

It can be argued that in every rational person (the definition of “rational” is touchy subject I won’t explain for now) there are certain properties common to all. The problem ( well, one problem) with relativism is how it, nihilistically privileges the experience of the individual above all else, making every ethical decision the right ethical decision: who would not like to have his or her beliefs guaranteed to be as correct as anybody else’s? But this is done at the cost of ignoring our shared qualities, turning away from the fact that despite different languages and cultures (and continents and skin colors) we all believe some of the same things. With that striking fundamental truth removed, the Prostitutes and the Saints stand side by side, equals in righteousness. What do you think?

Why We Buy (Subliminal Messages)

This A Blast From The Past
I was 18 when I wrote this how lame lol

Wow! I feel corny lls...but I wanted to share any ways
so tell me what you think and be honest :)





Did you hear those words underneath the loud lyrics


or was you just a victim of your inner desires

that held you hostage in this game

of supply and demand.

We’re you oblivious, or did you just lack self-control.

Either way you didn’t walk to the beat of

your own drum and now you stand still

in line wondering how did you get here in the first place.

See your conscious mind told you

that it wasn’t okay to buy that, but the

waves within sound system told you otherwise.

While you thought you were

listening to Janet Jackson over those speakers,

there were subliminal messages that attacked

your mind like a plague on your immune system.

With your brain occupied, your reasoning becomes impaired

 leaving you capable of buying any

and everything the store has to offer.

When you realized you were home

your brain took back over and as you go

to open your bags: a Mariah Carey CD

Who the f ck bought that!

Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success. ~Dale Carnegie

Promiscuity: The Double Standard








I know that a lot of you readers out there know all about the double standard between men and women. People tend to believe that men have it easier than women when it comes to being Promiscuous. It's Very True! Men do have it easier, but men don't get off scott free. While women tend to get judged more by their peers, men tend to have more problems in their relationships. Yeah our girlfriends my not call us skanks and sluts, but they do raise their eyebrows when it comes to giving us their complete trust. Men are more than likely to except a woman with a Promiscuous past than a woman would of a man. When have you seen a women come home to her family and introduced her stripper boyfriend. Not that all strippers are promiscuous, but men fall in love with strippers all the time. They even have songs glorifying it like... "I'm in love with a stripper" by T-Pain or the movie "Pretty Woman" where Richard Gere falls in love with the prostitue Julia Roberts . While women are being put down for the exploits they are more likely to be forgiven. People question their upbringing, childhood, etc......but on the otherhand men we are just dogs, immoral beings so to speak. All men want is sex according to society. We underline what's in bold "Promiscuity", but does anyone really care why.

I Have A Mission: by John Henry

I am created to do something or to be something for which no else is created; I have a place in God’s counsel in God’s world, which no one else has; whether I be rich or poor, despised or esteemed by man, God knows me and calls me by name.


God has created me to do Him some definite service; He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. Somehow I am necessary for His purposes…..

I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for nothing. I shall do good; I shall do His work. I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place, while not intending it, if I do but keep His commandments.

THEY SAY MONEY CAN'T BUY LOVE, BUT I WOULD SURE IN HELL LIKE TO FIND OUT


I was asked to write a blogg about why “Men equate love with giving gifts (also used for fake apologies), while Women equate love by cooking and cleaning”. Sorry it took so long for me to write about it, but I’m writing about it now. I don’t personally think gifts equal love, but I could understand how a man may think gifts are an equal way of showing love. First of all real men are givers by nature so anything that he could give to his significant other may make him feel as if he is showing her some form of love. Note that I said "real men". When you see the look in your women’s eyes after you have given a present, you can tell that she feels some form of love or affection. Secondly I have never known a female who met a gift that she didn’t like. I’m not trying to be offensive in anyway, but theirs more demand for what a man can do with his pockets then that of a women. Usually you win her over by doing nice things for her. Not necessarily buying gifts, but by taken her out to movies, dinner, or by sending flowers. I do believe that men do more than buy gifts to show love, but it’s usually overlooked when the gifts stop coming in. The first thing your girl would tell you is you don’t do the things you used to do. That’s usually centered around something financial. All of a sudden your jokes aren’t enough anymore. Neither is your charming personality.
Remember the phrases “no romance without finance” or “what have you done for me lately". Independent women of today don’t want a man with less than what they have, even though men still are willing to take a woman with less .Even men who make less money than his girlfriend still end up spending more money showering her with gifts. As far as men using gifts to break the ice in the form of an apology…. that depends on the women. Again something that I’ve never done or at least I don’t think I’ve done consciously. I know men are opportunist and will take advantage of anything that will get him out of a situation. If you are that simple that you can’t see when he is buying your forgiveness than that’s a damn shame. When I am mad at a women the only thing that you can do to resolve the situation is to take responsibility for your part in the situation, no gift can overturn that. I guess that’s what’s makes men and women different huh.
I’m no cave man, but in 2010 women aren’t that big on cooking or cleaning. Even when they stay at home instead of working they are more concerned with proving to you that women don’t have to cook or clean anymore than they are with just taking on a role of some form. I do believe that there are some women who are still willing to cook or clean for their men, but not that many. I know the question was geared towards the women who cook or clean so here we go. Men are big kids; it doesn’t take much to satisfy most of us. Feeding us and taking care the house hold makes a man feel like what he is doing is worth while. We love to feel appreciated and the women in our life who are willing to do those things will inherit man who will go through extreme measures to put a smile on there face.
It’s not just about us being lazy, it’s about appreciation. Real men and note that I said real can’t be bought and since most of us do provide (that’s real men again) instead of gifts we prefer a nice home cooked meal. Give him a sandwhich and some peace while he watches the game and he will probably make you his wife lls.

Driving the Distance

This Too Is A Passage That Was Given To Me As I Reached The Darkest Points In My Life.
Sometimes We All Need Reassurance
"There Is Light At The End Of The Tunnel".

Mathew 5:44-55 God sendeth rain on the Just and Unjust Alike.



Phillipians 4:13
“I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.”
The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called
Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

Time 2 Check Ourselves

Society On A Decline

In a world where we acknowledge a rapper named Jay-Z by the name Jehovah, getting shot 9 times can make your album go platinum like 50 cents, and being the Terminator can get you elected governor like Arnold Schwarzenegger, of course you have to say the world f’cked up. This era in time will rely heavily on parents teaching their children moral values at home, because they damn sure aren’t going to get them anywhere else. Whatever happened to "it takes a village to raise a child", now you hear celebrities saying things like they aren't role models. These are the people who have a heavy influence over our children. Also Christ has been removed from his own Holliday and replaced with X-mas, while prayer has been taken completely out of our schools. “In God we Trust” reads the back of our dollar bills, yet we do everything opposite God to earn a buck. It is easy to see how the world has fallen so far so fast.

Right now our children are at war with themselves. When you turn on the news they are killing each other and committing the crimes. They are more concerned with who look the best and who's blinging, instead of who they can trust and depend on the most. It was teenagers who killed the NFL's rising star Sean Taylor and teenage students who beat up their teacher on YouTube. Where is the guidance? When is their going to be a voice that they are familiar with that is going to step up and saying this isn't cool. This is not the way. Instead we have rappers who like their sprite easter pink, and spiritual leaders who molest children. Parent's, it's time for us to take our house holds back. Aren't you tired of seeing kids who can do the Stanky Leg, but can't count to 10. It is up to us to set the example starting in our own households. Stop trying to be their homie and start trying to be their leader, their guidance, their confidant.

Obama said it best when he said "We are the ones we've been waiting for". It is time for us to stop waiting on the next generation to clean up our mess. As parents we need step our game up. Our children are running our households. Let's bring back the respect and discipline that they need. Let's eat together as a family even if you are single parent home. Let's get our children back in bible study or Sunday school. You let them go out on Saturday; they can get up for church on Sunday. Let's support our kids in their extracurricular activity instead of their gang friends. How do you think this world got out of control in the first f ckin place? We allowed society to adopt our children instead of spending the necessary time with them that they needed. Let's remove the play stations out our living rooms so that our little children can have an imagination. Let's instill faith, hope, and prosperity into their lives. Most importantly let's stop telling our children what they can't do and start telling them what they can do.

Attention People: The Illuminati is real. What Are You Going To Do?

My New Address

This sent me via e-mail back in 2006 from a close friend of mine when I was going thru a crucial point in my life and I used it as a blue print on rebuilding my life.


I have moved!

Can’t remember if I told you that:

I have moved out from 1 Beggars’ Alley, located at
2 Poverty Lane at the corner of Down and Out Circle. As of today, I have a brand new
Home.

My new address is Living Well on 3rd Abundance Drive, located at the corner of
Blessings Street and Prosperity Peak. It’s in the God Can neighborhood. No longer will I
Allow myself to travel to the other side of town on Begging Peter to Pay Paul Route, located
At a Dead End Intersection called I Don’t Have, it connects with Borrowers Junction.

I no longer hang out at Failure’s Place, near Excuses Avenue, next to Procrastination
Point. I’ve moved to an upscale community called Higher Heights with unlimited
Potential and opportunities for me to succeed. I can do ALL things through Christ who
Strengthens me!

Life is good because God is good! Care to change your address? There are many vacancies!

Great Is Thy Faithfulness
I am well blessed and so are you, in spite of temporary
Circumstances!!!!!!!!

Don’t Tell God How Big Your Storms Are, Tell Your Storms
How Big Your God Is!!

May God Richly Bless Each and Everyone That Reads This

Aren’t We Egotistical



Are they talking to us? Maybe or Maybe not.

Did you know that the words for “mother” and “father” are really similar, if not Identical, across tons of languages? Part of the reason has nothing to do with the languages being closely related either. There’s an even more self-centered reason for it lol. It’s because parents totally assume that their babies are talking about them! Isn’t it funny: “ma”, “pa” are some of the first and easiest language-like sounds babbling babies will make- and what’s the word for “mother” in English? “Mama”! It’s also “mama” in Dutch, and in Romanian, and in Catalan, Slovak, Quechua, Chinese, German, Russian, and more. These Languages have evolved so much that the first language noise a baby makes sounds like it’s saying “hey Daddy” or “Hey Mommy watch u doing” lol. Dads aren’t excluded either. “Papa” is in English, Cree, and Hindi! Isn’t it crazy that these words are built to flatter new parents especially our “Mothers”? Across language, time, and entire civilizations, we’re united by pointing at our babbling babies and saying, Yes he or she is calling my name. Just when you thought you were special huh lol! What a egotistical world.

Can IT Work

Which way do you go?
Heart or Faith
I have been fortunate in my Adult Life to have never dated any one who represents a different religion or as some people would say Faith. I do however know that this can pose quite a problem. I’m sure it affects things as small as eating habits as well as things that are as big like How To Raise Your Children. Do you let your heart guide you and push morale to the side? Faith is something that you are supposed to stand up for so there’s really know way of avoiding it.

I am guessing that if I am of Christian Faith and my partner wasn’t, it could lead to tension, but relationships are about compromise, aren’t they? But if your partner adopts the actions of a religion just as a compromise, but not the beliefs behind it, isn’t that just going thru the motions, which isn’t really what religion is about?

I guess a lot of it depends on the Faith of the people involved, right?

Or do you just lead by example hoping that they eventually choose the same path?

I mean if your really believe that by not sharing your religion, your partner is hurting his or herself (i.e. condemning his /herself to a after life of Eternal Damnation), then you’d want to help him /her out, right? I could see that leading to problems down the road since there’s not much room for movement there unless one of you softens your stance on the subject. Luckily like I said in the beginning I have never had this happened to me so
What Do You Think?

Love Isn't Science

Love Is Not An Excuse To Do Dumb 'ish




What is Love?
Love is “a strong positive emotion of regard and affection”. Well that’s seems so easy and makes love seem so black and white, but we know that’s not true. Maybe we should insist that love can’t be defined, that it’s beyond the reach of rational thought: that we fall in and out of love in a way that is out of our control. All we can do is hope for the best and hold on for this up and down roller coaster, because it’s cupids arrow shooting straight through the heart, striking anywhere at any time! Love is a lot like a axe murderer, or an aneurysm, or a stroke, or dementia. Love is just a unpredictable occurrence! We don’t really need to define it. I know, I know, I make love sound so less than romantic, so unattractive. I have nothing against romance! You can still be romantic while maintaining that love is an understandable emotion. Just be rational! And don’t do stuff and use “I was in love!” as the justification. That’s not love: that’s responsibility deflection. So again let’s be rational about love and keep the scientific feeling’s out of it.

Life Isn't Science


My perspective without getting religious on you.
To me Science takes away how relevant God really is. It’s not that I don’t believe in science: It s just that Science has no grey area. It’s all black and white and we know that life is just not like that. We have miracles and divine intervention that science just can’t explain. Science is based upon hypotheses, conclusions and theories formed via repeated observations and experiments! This allows us to fashion and empirical and verifiable understanding of the world around us. Theories are said to be correct if they match up with the observed properties of the universe! However science makes the tactic assumption that the universe is predictable and orderly and regular, which may not always be the case!
What if some of the laws and theories of science were merely statistical and not always as accurate statistics show. Allow me to elaborate. Well, we say the speed of light is about 300,000 km/s, because s it’s been that every time we’ve measured it. Well if you add God the equation than the speed of light is subject to change from time to time because he has the power to do so at any giving time. We have people who survived injuries that science said should have killed them. Or what about people who come out of commas or people who were paralyzed and then able to walk again. Why is that people treat science as if it is a God because the power to create has to generate from something. I know that science makes sense but at the end of the day my chips are on God.
I know it's a touchy subject, but I would love to know your thoughts.

The Evolution Of Me



I’ve come to the realization that my thoughts and views as a teenager have changed over the years. In many significant ways I am an entirely different individual now as an adult.

So the question remains: Who Am I Now?
I am God Fearing, Loving, Independent, Responsible, Sensitive, Respectable, Self-less, Monogamous and Mature to name a few… clearly an opinion I have of myself I might add. lol

Who Was I Previously?
I was God Fearing, Loving, Dependent, Irresponsible, Blunt, Reckless, Selfish, Promiscuous and Immature. Although I may at times revert back to some of these traits I have definitely evolved.
(It’s amazing how we all felt so mature when we really weren’t.)

Is there
no connection between myself as a teenager and myself now, besides the fact
we share a (now post – pubescent) body?

What is the point of worrying about self
if self is always in a constant state of change?

Why should we bother assigning identity to what is essentially an
ever- changing motion picture.

I’m sure I’m over analyzing again.
I know that the series of events in our life
are what contributes to our evolution.
People change, that’s just a part of life.
Just because were in a state of gradual evolution
doesn’t mean that we have no identity; indeed
that identity is probably what’s guiding the evolution.
What Do You Think?

SAME ISH DIFFERENT DAY

Another Beautiful Day! Right!

Today is a great day to think for some new variety,
some new excitement in my life!

Then you are hit with the realization that you are stuck in a rut:
everyday you do the same ish, kids, work, and paying bills. I love my kids, but there’s must
be more to my life than the rest of this BS.

You vow to God to start making changes in your life, today.
You can make big decisions or you can make small decisions.
You are in total control.

You are trying to think of a new way to
change your life when a close friend of yours happened
to pop in.

You talk ish for a while. You tell him about your day; he
tells you about his…. Yada! Yada! Yada!

A few drinks later time passes by, and soon you have forgotten
all about your decision to effect some positive change in your daily routine.
Can You Say “The devil is Busy”lol

Only later, in the evening do you realize that you spent
another day stuck in your self-imposed rut!
Another day, down the drain!

Damn! Well there’s nothing you can do about that now.
Tomorrow is another day, what could happen did happen.
Live To Fight Another day!
Well it time to go to bed!
You Look over at your family
and thank God
that you do have a beautiful family, a job to go to, and bills to pay.
Life Isn't That Bad After All.

Another Beautiful Day! Right!

Thanks Father: For Mom & Dad


I am going designating today March 2nd as Parents Day!

It’s true everybody,
your parents were the bomb good or bad.

I don’t know if you realized it,
but they made a series of decisions big or small
that led to their meeting and ultimately your birth,
which sounds boring until I rephrase it and tell you
that they held the very fact of your Life in their hands,
casually and unwittingly playing with the essence of your existence.
Maybe you were just a drink or two away or maybe the Isley Brothers had something to do with it. Either way your life is precious and they are responsible for that.
Even if they are here in spirit or weren’t even involved;we are an extension of them;
so let’s be grateful.
(Thanks be to GOD!)

I love you Mom and Dad

Flipping The Script

Today is one of those days where I have to lie to myself to keep myself from being completely down. So bare with me while I take you on a journey of how I manipulate myself into believing that I am in total control of what goes on in my life.

Tired Of Paying Bills!

Well I don’t pay bills. That’s right I said it. I pay Bribes.
When my rent is due, I pay regional management bribes to ensure that the roof over my head doesn’t disappear. When I’m hungry you know what I do? I walk right into a grocery store and steal a cart, fill it up with whatever foods I want, and then I financially coerce their cashier into letting me leave with the goods! Other times I just barge into a restaurant sit myself down, and just tell whoever walks by what I want cooked for me.

I’m a bad ass right! At least in my mind I am.

It all started when I decided to stop paying bills and instead start offering bribes for the precise amount of the bill…. Yeah that’s Flipping The Script right?lol

First Comes Struggle Then Comes Glory

This poem was written in 2008. My brother in-was killed on August 10, 2007 about a month after he gave his life to Christ. I was present to walk him down to the Alter at the church. God moves in mysterious ways doesn't he.
Dedicated to Andre Contee
July 1, 1971 to August 10, 2007
I watched you struggle to find your way
I knew this Sunday would be the day
You looked at me with a glare in your eyes
I could see that Jesus was claiming your life
You gave him your soul and now your okay
A few weeks later you passed away
I wish we could have you, but he chose you today
your soul is eternal, I feel you each day
You can now rest and put your worries away
I'm glad the devil didn't get the final say
Instead Jesus won and got the glory today
We are all better people for knowing you Dre'

I Love My Country: But We Can Be Shitty Sometimes

(I Mean That Literally)
Did you know that when we flush our toilet,
It fills again with clean drinking water. I don’t mean
that we should drink it. I’m just implying that we
sh*t in water the we could drink.

That’s kind of crazy don’t you think people?

We do everything with drinkable water. Wash
dishes in drinkable water: Makes sense! Wash clothes in
drinkable water: I understand. I just don’t see any
reason why poop water should be drinkable. We should
be filling our toilets up with recycled water that’s already
been used for washing clothes or whatever!

I mean think of how really privileged we are and I thinks
It’s a pretty f*cked up that while there are places where
clean water is hard to come by, if available at all (see Haiti),
we are literally sh*tting in it.
Am I politicising our sh*tting or does anyone else find this strange.

Self-Reflection

This is a re-post. I didn't have any followers at the time and this is one of my favorite poems . I would love to hear what you think of it. My life has changed dramatically since I wrote this.


Looking In the mirror
reflecting on the past.
How I often wondered,
how it went so fast.
The opportunities I've squandered.
The blessings I've missed,
while living my life in total ignorance.
Not really understanding how to remain optimistic.
I abandoned my morals and ignored my religion.
But God cast a storm that influenced my decision.
Before you knew it I was at his submission.
He held me tight. Then let me go.
Then whispered to me: "Fear no more".
I got up and knew: right away,
that today was the beginning
of the rest of my days.
With renewed faith
and a sense of purpose
I was able to recover
what almost perished.
Now I stand here
Looking in the mirror
admiring my self
Reflection that is.

The Power Of Secrets:shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Do You Have A Secret?
I know that we say that “The Truth Shall Set You Free”, but what’s the deal with keeping secrets. Do we keep them to keep our relationships a float or do we share them to cement friendships? Treasure them because we value knowledge, and if the knowledge is privileged then it’s even more valuable? Create them because we are all hopelessly deceptive and our public images and private personas can never be reconciled??

Perhaps we create them out of shame? Those who keep their failures secret seem more perfect, and so we too keep our shames private, in order to bring ourselves up to this impossible standard “Perfection”! Maybe it’s not our fault cause as soon as these failures are revealed; we react with judgment, fearing any sympathy might arouse interest in our own secrets!

The Roar From Within.
