Out with the Gavel… In with the Gatorade.

It is so easy for people to look at another person’s flaws first. Moreover, it is easy for others to discriminate. Not only is it common in the society that we live in, but it is engrained in us to do it. In a sick way, it provides a form of therapy, and becomes addictive like a drug. Yes, judgment and discrimination are drugs, and can be addictive when it becomes natural for a person to automatically make an assessment of someone. Maturity comes in removing personal biases. On the contrary, it is our duty to judge in a loving, positive … Continue reading Out with the Gavel… In with the Gatorade.

Sick and Tired? Take A Pill.

Complaining is such an easy emotional outlet. In fact, it is even a default to many. Finding all the things about life that is wrong oftentimes allow us to exhale on personal responsibility.

Survey Says…

“I don’t care what people think of me.” This is one of the most selfish and hazardous beliefs that anyone can have. In fact, not only does it show a disconnect from the world around you, but it prevents someone from digesting hard truths that need to be marinated and reflected upon. Far too many times do people use pride and arrogance to mask genuine pain and disgust within one’s self.

The beauty of having someone there with you is that he/she is virtually saying, “give me some of that pressure; I am here to lighten up your load.” Isn’t that amazing?

Join the load-sharing revolution. However, do … Continue reading Would You Like Fries With That?
