Do I have to scream as loud as you scream for you to hear me?
Do I have to call you names, like you do, to get your attention?
What is wrong with your life that you think I can fix?
What is wrong with your life that you can’t fix yourself?
Screaming and calling names are attention grabbers.
Beyond that there is nothing. No problem stated nor solution offered.
So you’re looking for someone else to take care of you when you don’t know how you want to be taken care of? You want somebody else to figure it out?
You’re looking for a mother a father? A God? Anybody? Because your life is out of control? And who lost that? Somebody else forced you to lose control of your life?
All these rich talking heads on television 24/7 are the ones losing it. Out of control they are, because they think somebody is going to steal their money and give it to the poor.
They don’t like unpredictability. If you want change, then unpredictability is part of the process.
If you stop screaming long enough and stop assaulting everybody with your mouth, you’ll grow into a change that suits you better.
Blocking change does not make anybody’s life better. You don’t need to build a wall, you are the wall.
Who did you eat last night for supper?
Cannibal! Tear down that wall.
