This week has been a…. I almost typed, ‘stressful week,’ but then I just laughed.
This week has been an eye opener for me. My eyes have been opened to some things in both worlds I live in; my first life realm and second life.
Mainly, I need to take care of myself.
Both lives contain the common denominator that we’re all human beings, and bring ourselves to the table. Our ideas. Our thoughts. Our morals. Our baggage. Our opinions. Our stress….. Above it all though, don’t use any of those things as excuses.
I had a real life experience happen to me this week that was pretty frightening, if I’m honest, and solidified some choices I made, and need to continue to make. They aren’t easy choices, but being a gentleman comes at a price sometimes, regardless of which realm we’re speaking about. Some people just won’t like what I have to say, the boundaries I set, or even when I choose to smile. There just comes a point boys and girls, when even a gentleman has the right to say, “Fuck ’em.” Know what else? Being a gentleman does not make me a doormat to wipe your shit on at the end of the day.
If you don’t even fake ask me, “How are you?,” don’t expect me to care about you.
“As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “Love of Oneself.”
