i don’t consider myself to be an overly religious person – but what i have learned recently is that the devil is out there trying to influence people to think or do bad things. i am now committed to resist the devil trying to influence me and i am also noticing the devil influencing others to say or do wrong things – and because of that – i will move away from those people
do not give up
do not give in
do not stop
do not yield to evil
do not sacrifice yourself
do not follow bad thoughts
do not say bad thoughts
do not yield to bad people
the real power of life is to continue on in your life without giving in to bad things. stay on the right track. keep your tight grip on life. follow your strong good habits. follow your consistent good routine. keep getting out of bed. keep doing what you are supposed to do. do not give up your life when you still have life to live. this is real power. to stay in the fight of life. to not leave the ring until it is truly your time. if you can make it to the end with your honor intact – with your dignity intact – with your character intact – it will be then and only then when you have won the game of life. stay strong and stay in the game – do not yield to things that want to pull you out of the game. this is real power – staying the course no matter what.
once you hit 50 years old – that’s all you have left to live – 20-40 years if you are lucky. so think about life that way. think to yourself – “i have 20-40 years left in my life – and that’s it”
when you start to give a damn about what people think about you – think 20-40
when you start to care if you are not included in events, etc – think 20-40
when you have people that don’t reciprocate a friendship – think 20-40
when people don’t have time for you – think 20-40
when people don’t ask questions about your life – think 20-40
when people think they are better than you – think 20-40
when people show off – think 20-40
when people are rude to you – think 20-40
That’s it! 20-40 years left! so why do you give a shit about any of these things, when in 20-40 years, you will be dead!
in other words – do what makes you happy, do what makes your family happy, do whatever you want – and stop caring about anything else because in 20-40 years – you will be dead and the world will go on without you – and in a couple of generations, no one will know your name – live YOUR damn life the way you want to live it – and the sooner you figure this out, the sooner you will stop caring about things that don’t matter and you will stop worrying all the time – and you might actually do more with your life!
goodbye – nothing else to say here – the message is crystal clear!
this is nothing new to the older generations but like everything – this is quite new to generations growing older.
which is – as we grow older, we start to care less about what others think or say – because we realize that our time on earth is running short and we can’t afford to waste anymore time
this then pushes us to react to people in a different way – a less tolerant way. we have always taken the tolerant path first -put with what we perceived to be people’s BS
but now as we grow older and start to care less and less – we shorten bad interactions and, in fact, end relationships altogether instead of staying nice and tolerant.
this leads to a list developing – of people that perhaps were once friends or acquaintances and now you have cut off
don’t be alarmed – this is normal – it goes hand in hand with the “i don’t care” mentality
if you don’t care and if time is running out – then you will move faster to judgment on human relationships – and a list of ex-friends will develop
accept this side effect to “i don’t care” and move on
the perceived nicest person in the world has a list – believe it
