I started to write this post, after witnessing some transphobic people. Also, though after watching Echkart Tolle and Brand Russell talk about this sort of thing.
As time has been going on and on more, I have been starting to see on generally all social media platforms that people’s ego’s are taking over, just a little but by little bit…Not anyone’s on here…But you know about how people who yell the loudest, get heard. That’s how I feel about social media right.
When I take a gander at Trump Supporters, Transphobia, or any general bigoted or Conservative account. They’re always “loud”. By loud I don’t mean, they’re necessarily TYPING LIKE THIS, ALL THE TIME…They generally say something really blatantly obviously stupid, but they will always get the most likes. Yet, anyone whose sane or rational will get a couple, if they’re lucky.
For all these loud accounts, when you see them do something in public, like anti-mask “protest”, anti-trans “protests”. Despite them getting thousands of “likes” for their tweets. They may actually get out in public, 20 people…at roughly the most. So WHY do they get so many likes? If you truly believe that you’re not doing anything wrong, why aren’t they getting out there?
That’s why I personally call social media “Ego Media” now. I feel like we can change that perspective though! Let them all go to Parler. They seem to want to go, but I have yet to see anyone actually delete their Twitter account. I think we can change it, but being simply and quietly positive. Be so positive, it will drive them nuts!lol
Warning the video is nearly two hours…So grab that cup of tea…Get comfortable…It’ll be worth it!
I started to write this post, after signing into the YouTube and seeing all those beauty “influencer’s” in ANOTHER drama. I had watched the above video first and then that came up. All I could think of was what I had seen with Tolle and Brand and all I could think of was, what was the point again of this influencer’s? None of them are influencing in a positive way. Although not everyone is a Tolle, these “influencer’s” are nothing about ego, they’re not even trying.
It’s not a gun problem, a mental health problem…
I honestly think the problem with American and it’s gun, is that it’s a completely self-entitlement problem.
You have a country that it’s entire background is based on purely a self-freedom.
Whenever I’ve ever gotten into a “discussion” (it’s hard to have a grown up discussion with people who are “gun nutty”) everything that they say is about themselves, it’s never about the people who got shot. “Their” rights,”their” freedoms”, you trying to take away “their” toys…ME, ME, ME…
You look at people like the Kardashians for example. They are a fantastic example of self entitlement. They have literally become “famous” and rich off of selfies and themselves…Is it really impressive though? That the Kardashians can play a country that are completely self obsessed with self anyways?
Or when people say “All Lives Matter”…well duh, but right now we are focusing on the Black Lives Matter because at the moment we are focusing on why are they getting unjustly shot in the streets…Can they just focus on that for like two seconds? I’m sure if they actually focused on BLM for more than a second rather than getting all knee jerky, they’d actually SEE the problem.
Now saying all this, clearly not ALL Americans are like this…In fact, I’d say the majority of Americans ARE about others, and not about ego. However, the problem is the people in power are all about “ME, ME, ME”
I just wanted to state to those who may question this, Feminism is not a cancer! You are not dying or died from Lorde saying:
“Hey, men – do me and yourselves a favour, and don’t underestimate my skill,”
First, I am pretty sure that Lorde was directing this at certain men or a particular man in her life. Second, I’ve always believed if someone’s comment affects you personally, (especially those of people you don’t actually know) maybe you should ask yourself why? Personally I have never been affected by the words of someone I don’t know and haven’t done anything too.
The thing I hate is people comparing Feminism to Cancer, when it’s not a suitable comparison and is disrespectful to people who are fighting cancer, or those who have lost loved ones as a direct result of cancer. No one…man or woman…died or died slowly, or had to go a hospice or had their body quickly deteriorate, because of Lorde and her words. Especially if you are taking a complete strangers words and take them personally. That’s your ego hurting, not cancer. True Feminism wants equality between men and women, that’s the point of it. You can’t have that if you hate either gender, that’s not equality. That would be superiority.
Yes, there are women out there who probably do actually hate men and want women to be superior. We are human after all and I think every group will always have it’s extremist. The majority of women however truly just want equality. When you want to see negative things, guess what? You find them. IF you are looking for something bad or good, you will find what you are looking for.
Next time someone writes something, actually stop, breathe and think “Do these words affect me at all? Why do they?”.
STOP, BREATHE AND THINK
I just felt like this was an appropriate speech to post, with all the misery and family coming together for various different reasons over a holiday like Thanksgiving. Family coming together vs The Native Americans being wiped out by the invaders.
Sometimes I think I just think differently from other people, kind of like I was born in the wrong era, or the wrong “reality”. Honestly it hurts my spirit, and I use term since I was called a racist for not agreeing that my spirit is less spirtual than some others. “White people sucked out all the spirit”…That is not even how spirit works. I said to this individual though “That’s your Ego talking, NOT your Spirit”… That was definietly a trigger for me. I work with Spirit a lot, I do Reiki, Tarot … Witch craft some may call it! You leave my spirit alone, I’ll leave yours alone.
It was annoying because I was saying that it’s even more important to stand for matters like BLM, to start really educating ourselves on our histories. Stand with Standing Rock, for example. Just recently I found out that Gandhi had slept with younger girls to “test himself”, who knows for sure!…Which I think he ‘passed’ but that clearly is not the issue. How can someone ever learn if they…well…never learn? If they and you are never listened too? Nothing moves forward, nothing progresses. We get stuck in the same fight, the same circles. Sometimes I do few a lot of the fights as frivolous, especially on Instagram, and they never get anywhere. Which information is even correct? So now I don’t argue on Instagram or Facebook anymore.
The reason I’m posting this video and a link to the Speech in written form though? This video soothes my mind, it is exactly what I am trying to say. Martin Luther King is a hero of mine…I feel like we need more people/leaders/great minds like Martin Luther King. He believed we should ALL work together. We ALL need each other. I still, and probably will always, think his assassination is one of the greatest tragedies of our time. It’s nice to know someone out there existed as I think as well.
I am a dreamer, I know that, I can be extremely naive. Possibly even too idealistic. If you could have any dream you wanted to come true though, what would it be?
