That is exactly it. I just would have expected people beyond the age of, say, eighteen, to be able to actually realize the benefits that saying the truth holds for the future instead of only feeling insulted in the present moment, but more and more, I am having to see that my expectation was wrong.
Would they read it, though? I suspect I should not be in need of having that assurance in order to actually do something, but I have to admit, it does help. I just do not see the point in wasting my breath, or ink in this case. If I had that assurance….yes, I do think I would like the thought. It feels good to put thoughts into words. Do you write regularly?
Foresight is no longer something of importance to people. What matters is getting from point A to point B in the shortest time allotted, and strictly adhering to a previously-recorded routine that becomes the only constant people have. By trying to move forward through rushing, people seem to only make their lives stagnant.
I feel they would. I don’t think there is a need for you to prove yourself in what you write about. Your writing and the subject matter are very established. But, I think showing what you have, and showing it consistently, is something that will be beneficial, and could really help others in the long run. Me? No, I am not much of a writer.

Oh, I am doing my best. Besides, the truth might hurt at times, but it is nevertheless important to hear, so I might just have made that a principle of mine. Those people…they just haven’t learned that it is not about what you say, but about how you say it.
So it isn’t just me, that is certainly good to hear. And yes, I do know that, but people are making it very difficult for me right now. I am still waiting to see the effect of that letter and hoping there will be one. I was feeling like it is one of the few channels that I have left.
I couldn’t agree with you more. It is important to spread the truth, and the rightful word. Some may not know it at the time, but it is for the best. Many are not aware of that, either. How things are said causes so many problems.
At least it is still a channel you have to use, and can continue to use. I encourage you to do so. Maybe making the writing of a letter a part of some sort of routine would be beneficial both to you and those who read it.
Me? Oh Ill probably just stick to side that’ll keep safest for longest.. He smiles softly I guess I@m a coward like that
Such a viewpoint doesn’t necessarily point straight to cowardice. Some would consider it a survival instinct.
Yes, but I still am sorry for your loss.I can’t even begin to imagine what it must feel like.
It is something I hope no one ever has to experience.
you di- wait… I am SO sorry!God, I am such an idiot.
There is no way for you to have known.
It sure doesn’t , as much as I wish it would.you sound like you know from experience. You have little ones?
Oh, you are welcome. I can assure you, my compliments are heartfelt. Yes, logic might just be the first thing to get thrown overboard, whatever one might believe in. I do not recall who said this, but I definately do think that “power corrupts”. And it seems like aiming for power might just do the same thing.
What do they say about fortune? “She is a fickle mistress”? Maybe recognition is just as fickle a mistress. Maybe….maybe many of them are. But I still do not understand why so many seem to hold the conviction that chaos is necessary to reach a better world. - She sighs- I should have given up on believing in betterment by now.
I know they are. That makes them even more appreciated. At least you are an hoest person, from what I have seen. Many of your former coworkers…I couldn’t say the same for. I am inclined to agree. Power does corrupt, to a certain extent, but I think it corrupts differently for the individual.
Most mistresses do tend to be fickle. -He nods with a slight sigh of his own.- I do not understand many of the thought processes that manage to rear their heads and burst forward. But, we must do what we can do help. But no-you shouldn’t have given up on betterment. Its something that is important to not give up on at all.
It is, I can assure you. I do think what one needs is a strong motivation, something to believe in, if I may refer as such to a secular concept. And that surprises me, it seems to me like you are one of the finest people one could turn to for advice. I am sure that people not listening is down to their individualistic mindset and some deplorably common resistance to learning and having to hear the truth. And what more you could ask for? I don’t know about you, but I personally think that recognition is a good place to start.
I appreciate the compliment. Thank you for that. But it is not faith alone that reaches to people; not in such a world, and state of society. It is surprising that people would just throw themselves into the conflict rather than try to seek guidance to work their way to peace, but logic doesn’t seem to play much of a role in the actions of those who wield power like a toy. Recognition is what some desire. I just want to do right by Him, and if I do, then I know I am doing my part.
