If we don't stand up for ourselves then no one will (#2256)
If we accept the lousy life most of us are faced with then that lousy life will not change. If we accept having even a worse lousy life then it will happen if we don't stop it. We are the change we are waiting for. it is up to all of us to be part of what makes us better and part of what keeps things from getting worse. There is no one who is going to come in and save us all out of some duty to justice and fairness. We have to know in our souls that we are worth more than what we are being generally told we are worth. Those who have the power to tell us how to think about ourselves are not looking out for what is best for ourselves and our families, they are looking out for what is best to protect their wealth and advantages. If you have to look to others to know how to think then you need to stop whatever it is you are doing and do something for yourself instead of just relying on the words of others. You live one time on this planet and while you are here you might as well make the best of it. First you have to know that you are as valuable as anyone else so start to think and act like it. We can all stop this moment and start living like we are precious in time and space. Whether we can or not is up to us. I know most all of us have little to nothing to subsist on but to change that we must improve our lives by thinking beyond what we are being told. Listening to others who offer little to nothing in the way of tangible help is not a solution. Listening to others who are actually able to offer resources and opportunities is the way forward and that is what we all need to focus on. You can always tell when someone or some organization is trying to help you, you actually receive real help, not some philosophical argument about how it is your fault and you need to accept that.
