Declare…

“Declare your jihad on thirteen enemies you cannot see -egoism, arrogance, conceit, selfishness, greed, lust, intolerance, anger, lying, cheating, gossiping and slandering. If you can master and destroy them, then you will be read to fight the enemy you can see.” ―Abu Hamid al-Ghazali

Nothing, But Lies & Excuses

You are full of it.

You are fake, flitting from one person to the next.

You are full of lies, full of excuses, full of issues.

One day you profess a certain level of love, loyalty, and friendship…

And then, like a Gemini plugging along, you move on to the next person.

You make me utterly sick.

I’m sorry I ever wasted my time being your friend.

You’re giving back nothing, but excuses, not realizing I know the truth.

Take all your bullshit and sell it to someone who cares.

You have lost the privilege of having me in your life.

I’m walking away, do not follow me.

Take It Personally

Know the damage you’ve done, and please take it personally.

Know that you cannot measure up, and please take that personally.

Comparing yourself to others will never get you anywhere. Assuming everyone’s superior to you… Talk about that in therapy.

Saying one thing, doing another. Why would anyone want you in their life, you stupid motherfucker?!

You can’t lie to me, you’re simply not that smart. Insulting my intelligence continually, yes, I take that personally.

Faking relationships, offering false friendship, offering up dishonesty, all so you can lean on me.

I have no respect for you, so please leave. I feel nothing for you, perhaps I never really did.

That which I dislike in others are things I try NEVER to do, so how in the world was I ever fooled by pathetic, meek, little you?

I Want To Say…..

I Want To Say…

“I want to say somewhere: I’ve tried to be forgiving. And yet. There were times in my life, whole years, when anger got the better of me. Ugliness turned me inside out. There was a certain satisfaction in bitterness. I courted it. It was standing outside, and I invited it in.”
―Nicole Krauss

*It takes a very strong person to admit this. I’m inspired by this quote, even if others don’t understand it. Not everyone’s life is the same.*

Transformation …

Transformation Is…

“Transformation is my favorite game and in my experience, anger and frustration are the result of you not being authentic somewhere in your life or with someone in your life. Being fake about anything creates a block inside of you. Life can’t work for you if you don’t show up as you.” ―Jason Mraz

*I don’t listen to his music, but I think this is an awesome quote. It wasn’t exactly what I was looking for, but it hit home this morning.*

There Is No Suc…

There Is No Such Thing…

“There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.” ―C. JoyBell C.

*I don’t necessarily agree with this in its entirety. I do, however, find it to be an interesting quote.*

 

Taming ego and letting go of anger.

This really strikes a cord with me today. It’s not something I would ever write, but I have said some of these things. All in all, an excellently written piece that I thought I’d share. =)

 

The Power Within

Anger is energy, and most of the time we misdirect our energy. If we spend our energy complaining, pointing fingers of blame and concentrating on who’s “right” and what’s “wrong”, instead of talking like adults and honestly try to understand and heal the situation, maybe learning to peacefully respond to each unique circumstance rather than reacting to them, to learn that we are, in fact, only draining away the creative energy it takes to solve the problem. Instead of bringing a catalyst for change, anger becomes an excuse for staying stuck.

egoLetting go of anger, self-pity, and self-righteousness can be a powerful decision. It runs counter to our society’s emphasis on who’s “right” and who’s” wrong”.

When anger is nurtured there are no winners. It truly doesn’t matter who’s “right” or who’s “wrong” because, the end result is that all the parties become losers. Relationships are lost, experiences are…
