Seasoning Tenacity – A Quintessential Truth #23
***WARNING…..If you are easily offended by truth and reality, don’t read this section.

“Be tenacious not a teetotaler”
If you want to be heard then speak. Seduce the mind into thought. People love to think, day-dream, wander through moments of silence. So why not provoke them into reasoning with themselves. You don’t have to craft a bunch of meaningless bullshit to ignite the art of thought. One simple truth can stimulate the human cerebrum with enough command so that it becomes some-what aroused.
Becoming conscious of a lifetime of occurrences can be beneficial for many especially if we are to bequeath it to the young people who will develop or flourish with what we teach them.
Instead of becoming enraged with events of conflict redirect those feelings to something positive. With so much anger and pain in the world we need to remember how to make waves of positive response. It is easy to become outraged when something immoral happens. So, to that I say find a way to create light in the darkness. Learn to possess appropriate or seasonable tenacity or perseverance.
Be determined and not submissive. If you want people to hear you then you must find a positive avenue to deliver your thoughts. You don’t need to smack someone in the face with a yardstick to get their attention but rather write something that will open their eyes to thought. Own your zeal and become the zenith of life in the concrete jungle.
Truth-telling isn’t an art form but the way one delivers truth is. There are so many angry and hateful beings out there that learning to avoid them becomes a new every day experience for us. I’ve had to do this as well as cut the negativity out of my life. It’s quite liberating you know. There are just folk out there that will latch on to your life-teet and suck you dry if you don’t wise yourself up to it. In regular terms we call them ‘users’ , people, not drug users but ‘users’, meaning they will befriend you and use you for popularity gains and promotion (without giving back or thanks) and get you to continuously do things for them so they don’t have to actually do anything for themselves but they will sit there and reap the rewards of your hard work for themselves and are arrogant enough not to mention you in the credits for lack of a better description.
I’ve known a few people like this in my days, the ungrateful and hateful cunts, as I like to call them. In the beginning they come across as so loving and supportive and endearing but as time marches on and they get into a comfort zone changes start to take place. Expectations: You’ll notice this when you’ve had a little time away from them that one of the first things they say to you upon re-engagement is “Oh, I’m sorry I’ve just been so busy I hadn’t realized so much time had passed since we last spoke.” a ‘true‘ person always finds half a second to say hello or even a thank you. a ‘fake-ass‘ person will be loaded with excuses. If you are confused or uncertain about someone test out my little theory. Drop off all your social media for one or two weeks without notice. See who sends you messages to find out if all is well with you and when you re-connect with people make note of the conversation, how it starts, is it with concern for why you haven’t been around or is it with an”Oh, I noticed you hadn’t been posting or sharing any of ‘my‘ stuff.” This will be a real eye-opener I assure you. I’ve done it myself and two comments that have always stood out during those times came from the same person, how ironic.
#1. “I noticed you changed your bio and I’m questioning your loyalty.”
#2. “You’re unpredictable and you hurt my feelings when I didn’t see you posting my stuff.”
I don’t think anything has annoyed me more than those two statements alone.
My responses to those are this:
#1. Funny, because I thought ‘my‘ social media accounts were for me and not them. So what does ‘my bio‘ have to do with any loyalty to anyone or anything. I possess the will and ability to change things up if ever and when ever I want to. I am here to promote myself over and above anyone else.
#2. Was I being paid to promote you? No, Funny, because I thought I was an individual capable of doing what I wanted to do out of the goodness of my heart. There are just some people in this world who think you owe them or you must do for them before yourself and sulk like an infant when they don’t get their own way. To that I say to motherfucking bad. I existed before you and I will exist after you contrary to what you might think.
WoW! Am I the only asshole here who can think for themselves, isn’t this a tad bit odd to have happen. Exactly how many sticks of dynamite would we have to set off before these types of people will look and see past the noses on their own faces.
Be tenacious~~you bet we will
We walk but we never walk alone! ~ Remember that…
We can still entice with love and put a spin on it that stings for days when we’re done.
This is yet another one to think on……….Until we meet again.
