GOOD EVENING FROM PHILADELPHIA!!!!!
AND HERE WE ARE IN MAY OF 2020!
Things are going well for You.
No matter who you are.
And of course, pending on who you are, then?
You know why I have just added that to the text above.
I've been called some interesting and insulting names, by specific types of people that I have met in My Life.
Who are no longer DIRECTLY IN MY LIFE.
For the exact reason why I DECIDED TO USE the track "Taking a Stand" for this post.
I've had people in My Dayjobs, past-n-present, so much similar to those who have come-n-gone. Where all they could ever actually do. Was tell Me how fucked up the World is and Things are. But then they saw time-n-time again that I know how bad things are and have gotten, however...?
That doesn't mean that things have to stay that way or will remain that way.
You don't like the way things are?
Then DO SOMETHING TO MAKE THINGS BETTER.
But coming to me and attempting to come down on me, because I am not a quitter. And I'm not gonna keep whining and complaining and bitchin-n-moaning about "how bad shit is", while never doing a fuckin thing to make things better?
I can't help you with that.
Help you with that.
No matter who you are.
I don't come from that kind of background.
And I have not lived my life that way.
Attempts to TRY TO live my life that way, have been absolutely disastrous.
As they should be.
And enablers of mediocrity and criminality...?
And do not deserve happiness.
Life isn't fair.
Life IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT.
Existed before you and I came into existence.
And will continue going forward when our time is up.
The absolute worst thing anyone can experience in LIFE!?
Is NOT FACING LIFE'S CHALLENGES.
So you can KNOW WHAT YOUR ACTUAL WORTH IS.
We're born into the Times we're born into.
It isn't always fair and fun and happy and easy, but...!?
You are here.
Don't waste it by being UNWORTHY OF THE LIFE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN.
Why am I typing this...?
Because today and throughout the last two weeks...?
Dayjob-coworkers and even random bus-riders have actually complimented me on the Fact that even when shit goes south...?
I don't quit.
And I don't run.
I can get frustrated and I can get angry and upset about something, but...?
That doesn't change that a situation or circumstance has happened and a level of rationality has to be maintained in dealing with it. And sometimes that means having to take on a situation/circumstance, where it REQUIRES YOU TO HAVE TO STAND ALONE, at least, initially.
I was told repeatedly that my ability to handle myself in pressure situations...?
Then I was asked repeatedly "Why are you 'at this level'"?
"Why are doing things the way you are doing them?"
I'm not a sellout.
To achieve what I NEED TO ACHIEVE...?
It has to be done UNDER MY OWN POWER.
Not by LEASING IT OR GETTING IT LOANED OUT TO ME.
We talked some more and I pointed out to these people, time-n-time again, where people compromised and got involved with others in order to achieve their goals and then end up burned when it was all said and done.
And you'll have to forgive me for being TOO VAGUE, but?
A VERY BIG opportunity that had been presented to me when I was at the PREVIOUS DAYJOB, that would have netted me a VERY NICE SALARY AND WHATEVER ELSE, where?
I passed it up.
Fast forward to today?
HAD I HAVE TAKEN THAT WELL-PAYING OFFER...?
I'd be UNEMPLOYED RIGHT NOW.
With BILLS AND A LIFESTYLE THAT WOULD HAVE EVOLVED TO MATCH THAT OFFER, which means right now I'd either be on the verge of homelessness, or?
And whatever I would have gained would be gone.
I had to look at THE REALITY of what was being offered and then weigh it against WHAT I ACTUALLY KNEW I NEEDED TO GET DONE, and so, I passed on it.
BUT I KNEW IT WAS RIGHT.
And here it is 2-years later?
And everything spun with an END RESULT that I was certain COULD HAPPEN.
And it was all because I REFUSED TO RUN FROM MY LIFE'S CHALLENGES AND I DID NOT ALLOW MY SITUATION AND CIRCUMSTANCES TO CONVINCE ME TO MOVE IN A DIRECTION WHERE I KNEW I WOULD NOT BENEFIT IN THE LONG RUN.
So that's it.
Again, it's vague, for good reason.
But understandable enough.
