I've spent my entire life studying humans and their habits.
Humans are really rather frail as far as species go. Oh, we act tough, but most times it's really a show. I have found that most bullies are actually very insecure. I never realized that until I actually called a bullies bluff when I was 18. Scared the living crap out of him! Me, I didn't have time to think,I just acted. It was a very liberating experience.
Which brings me to what is running through my mind tonight, today's society. If people could just for a few moments in their lives put aside what makes us different, and concentrate on what makes us the same, what others good points are, maybe we will survive this nightmare.
No matter whether you are a Republican or Democrat, you are conditioned to believe in certain ways and act accordingly. You have been taught since birth to believe a certain way and act towards others in a certain way. That's very difficult to unlearn, but it can be done.
When you encounter a situation that bothers you, stop for one moment, clear your mind, and think through what makes sense!
You don't really hate people, you hate confronting your insecurities. it's so much easier to make what's causing your fears go away by being defensive, than it is to confront yourself.
Because if you did you might have to change, to become different, and that is very frightening. I know, because I have confronted the fears in my life, and I am much the better for it.
I know we are in the midst of this 45 thing, but imagine just for a moment that you were in his shoes .Don't get me wrong, I still despise him, and he still must be stopped, but here is a man who's grandfather was kicked out of Germany, went to Canada to run a brothel, his father was a slumlord who happened to make money in real estate, went to prison for fraud, and didn't care or know about teaching his son to be anything other than what he is. That's sad!
Doesn't excuse what he became, but that's what he learned.
Just try to look at people in a different way, for who they are, not what you think they are!
May peace be with you
