THOUGHTS 3808 TO 3812

MY THOUGHTS 3808
FRIENDSHIP: FRIENDS ARE THOSE WHO SUPPORT YOU, OFFER YOU GENTLE CRITICISM, AND HELP YOU MOVE ON, EVEN WHEN YOUR FAULTS ARE APPARENT TO THEM. IF YOUR SO-CALLED ‘FRIENDS’ BERATE AND BELITTLE YOU, THEY ARE NOT FRIENDS. IF THEY DO NOT SUPPORT YOU, YOU DO NOT NEED THEM. IF THEY DEMEAN YOUR BELIEFS AND FEELINGS, IT IS TIME TO MOVE ON. IF THEIR IDEOLOGY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR FRIENDSHIP, THERE IS NO FRIENDSHIP. SEEK BETTER ‘FRIENDS.’ IT IS TIME TO DE-CLUTTER NEGATIVE PEOPLE FROM YOUR LIFE. NEVER LET THE MISCONCEPTION OF YOU BY OTHERS CONTROL YOUR DESTINY. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3809
DEMOCRACY: REMEMBER THAT DEMOCRACY IS BASED ON THE IDEA THAT YOU AGREE TO DISAGREE. WHEN DECISIONS ARE MADE, A COOPERATIVE EFFORT IS MADE TO CARRY IT OUT. IT DOES NOT MEAN TO CREATE VINDICTIVE GROUPS AND TO CREATE BARRIERS TO COOPERATION. WHEN POLITICAL GROUPS WITHIN A DEMOCRACY START TO CREATE HATE GROUPS, IT IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF THAT DEMOCRACY. BE FOREWARNED. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3810
VETERANS: LOOK AT THE VETERANS IN YOUR LIFE AND HAVE THEM TELL YOU THEIR STORIES. LISTEN WITH UNDERSTANDING AND COMPASSION. DO NOT RE-ACT IF YOU ARE SHOCKED AT WHAT YOU HERE. IF YOU DO, THEY MAY GO BACK INTO THAT SHELL THEY HAVE BEEN HIDING IN FOR YEARS. EACH VETERAN NEEDS TO EXPLAIN HIS/HER EXPERIENCES WITHOUT THE JUDGMENT OF YOUR EMOTIONAL REACTIONS FROM OTHERS. BE GLAD THAT SURVIVED AND ARE STILL WITH YOU. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3811
VETERANS: ASK A VETERAN TO WRITE DOWN HIS/HER EXPERIENCES OR RECORD THEM YOURSELF. HOPEFULLY THEY WILL. WHEN THEY PASS ON, YOU WILL HAVE A PERSONAL RECORD OF THE HISTORY OF THOSE EVENTS TO COUNTER ANY ACADEMIC OR POLITICIAN WHO WILL TRY TO REINTERPRET THOSE EVENTS AND TRY TO PAINT THOSE VETERANS AND THOSE EVENTS IN NEGATIVE WAYS.

MY THOUGHTS 3812
QUESTION 396: DO YOU TRAVEL TO DIFFERENT PLACES TO UNDERSTAND THE FEELINGS WITHIN YOU, OR DO YOU TRAVEL TO IMPRESS PEOPLE BY SAYING THAT YOU HAVE BEEN TO A WELL-KNOWN PLACE? EmilKoval©2012
