Something I noticed in the Suburbs…

Everyone is alike.

At least, they try to become as similar to one another as possible. The ‘herd’ mentality takes over. Consensus is more important that being individual, unique, and mindful.

No longer do I see people with their own viewpoints and talking about the research they did on any particular subject that sheds new light on old, outdated information. Instead, I see apathy in its worst form based on fear and low self-esteem.

Why do the bright minds of city-folk seem to dim in the Suburbs?

Why the passive-aggressive behavior that only curates frustrated children, teenagers, and severs family communication and values, which are the foundations for any great society?

As I look back over the past ten years, when I first relocated from NYC to the suburbs, I have seen myself bowing to the suburban pressures way too many times. My self-image and character has been attacked over the years with passive-aggressive, subtle yet overt daggers of disapproval, shunning, smirking, gossip, and lack of empathy for another viewpoint.

Why do educated women [and we have more educated women now than ever before in the history of this world] become compliant, complicit, apathetic, and fearful to what a man, a group of men, a religious doctrine, outdated social mores, and even yesteryear “roles” within society force upon unsuspecting adults?

It is time to stand up and speak up to overpower the darkness of a paternalistic and oppressive community.

Old, man-made Religions do their part to keep women submissive, and thus, our children are warped with these damaging messages. Another branch of important life quality that is damaged by an overpowering Government, paternalistic Religions, Deceptive School Systems, etc., is our Environment, Wildlife, Food Quality, and all Animal life since Sexism is on the same, ignorant plane as abuse of all living beings.

It does nothing but harm to the self-worth of children and certainly confuses young women with the dichotomy of “good girl/shut up and be pretty” versus “educated and strong, decisive, successful, and maintains her own viewpoint.”

I have seen and felt the numbness of complacency. It will reduce your life to a mundane set of tasks and roles to fulfill without fully understanding your God-given reason for being on an amazing Earth to begin with.

I urge all women, men, teenagers, and lovers of life to come together to bring this very detrimental undertow of being “average” and “compliant” to the forefront of public discussion to raise awareness, and thus, ACTION, for the the truth of our self-empowerment on this Earth, in this one life, so that we can all live in God’s Grace with joy and HONESTY, true peace, emotional harmony, mutual respect, reverence of this short gift of life, and in celebration of our differences.hands-holding-world

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hypocrisy of DOI Budget, Alt Facts May Kill Our Wild Horses

June 8, 2017 at 11:43 AM | Posted in Think | Leave a comment

I urge my radio listeners to stand and speak up for our Wild Horses [The American Mustang] whose very existence is greatly threatened by apathy, ignorance, and by dirty industries that wreck havoc on the Environment [and use tax dollars to kill Wildlife].

Hypocrisy of DOI Budget, Alt Facts May Kill Our Wild Horses (published in the Desert Independent)

Today Ryan Zinke gave testimony to the US House Appropriations Committee hearing on the proposed Department of Interior (DOI) budget for fiscal year 2018. The news that the budget proposes a $10 million dollar spending cut to the already underfunded Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Wild Horse and Burro Program is effectively putting a bullet in the heads, or allowing kill buyers to profit off of the wild horses by sale to slaughter. The news hit headlines last week amidst a wave of outrage from the advocate…

Will I Ever Be Good Enough? Healing the Daughters of Narcissistic Mothers [Book Review]

Amazing and so freeing.

The Invisible Scar

[photo credit: flickr user Stephanie Overton] [photo credit: flickr user Stephanie Overton] Some daughters grow up with a nagging sense of something not quite right in their relationship with their mothers, though the daughters can’t place their finger on what’s off exactly. It’s a vague, pervasive feeling of being unloved and ignored. They feel like somehow, in some way, the loving relationship that other people seem to have with their parents is eluding them.

These daughters may not even know they are being emotionally abused. They’ve been conditioned to endure—from their mothers—constant demands for the spotlight, attacks on their personhood, razor-sharp verbal abuse, debilitating mind games, the Greek chorus of belittling comments implanted in their heads by their mothers, and so much more. These daughters just want their mothers will treat them lovingly… but their mothers only care about being adored.

Perhaps you, too, have felt something was terribly wrong in your relationship with your…
