Where do I stand?
Where do I stand is an important analytical question for self evaluation. Somedays I think my answer is that I am not well defined or I’ve stuff doesn’t end up going my way yet I come out smelling like rose because i know how to handle situations. Society is a mess & the Unites States in general is a more paranoid place than I used to be but that’s all because terrorists made this nations fearful of every devil behind every bush. This isn’t a political rant, it’s a life rant on people & interactions. “The greatest tragedy is people don’t think.” Ryan Miller
I study interaction because so many people get it wrong, don’t express them well, or choose to put to much ill conceived thinking into something that should remain simple. I’ve been a victim of many of those circumstances where just because I know how to do something regardless of my title I’m treated differently. I’m a doer & want to do because I can benefit my family, my friends, & people I love. I getting to that point where if someone decides to cross my path trying to prevent what I love doing they’re going to be a stain on my road to what I want to accomplish. I love being a nice guy but I have a very close friend that’s taught me a little about being on the edge & how actions speak louder than words too. That’s why at the moment I feel like the odd man out of place in the overall picture, yet give me a day because those feeling pass. What’s important are the people who I know who support me without question. If I didn’t have those kind of people around me then everything I do would really feel quite meaningless, pointless, & everything I’ve done is waist of time. This year has been full of ups & downs. My 2013 hasn’t been all that easy but if it were not for God above, my own nature, & the company I find myself around I couldn’t do what I do. I made reference to the word title in the second sentence of this paragraph. That’s a reference to my real life job as custodian or service staff for a school system & it’s a title I cannot stand. I’m just going to blatantly & bluntly come out and compare ti to slut shaming, yeah you read that right, which has been around for quite a long time. I know the you all reading this out there are like, “hold the phone.” How can you compare your title of custodian to slut shaming where a woman makes herself available to men and gets criticized for the action. Simple, I ended up getting criticism for what I’m good & enjoy doing because someone else thought it was wrong of me to be doing photography, videography, digital media, & social media for a girls basketball team I spent four years around & put countless hours into making memories for them to enjoy after they move of from high school days of being a student athlete. I was shamed by one person, the community showed there endless support, & I ended up with very close friend in the process.
What I’ve learned in year timeframe with my close friend is a lot about life & sometimes following your desires. Individually I’m pretty strong person but my resolve wains at times because it sometimes I go out of my way to help all of my friends even if it means sharing a lot loads. Sometimes those burdens come in all different packages but that’s most of life is tackling all of those with a good support group of people who can really tell you that tomorrow the sun will rise & you have a fresh start to really keep proving to everyone what you’re made of even it you only have a good day. Who knows what might change overnight? Just always be ready for because its sometimes it can be a true test of what kind of person you really are. Always rise up to challenges & defeat them so that you can become better at what life throws at you my friends. Yet sometimes its all about consistency & nothing changes.
