Sometimes I just sit and listen to the conversation of the social mob. It is the general attitude of the status quo, containing the axioms or the ideas which are spoken aloud, which are universally accepted.
I think there are four of them dinging around the posts of our social media:
- We’re all different.
This particular thought is uttered almost like a prayer.
- Our differences have never really helped us.
- Our differences are not as evident as we make them out to be.
- And the fear of being similar to other human beings is the seed of arrogance.
- All that matter is that you do your best.
Really? Somewhere along the line, a job or mission needs to be accomplished. Having 30 people fall short of the goal does not put us any closer to completion.
Actually, the axiom should be, “The best thing you can do for others is to know what your best is, and warn them.”
- Men and women don’t get along very well.
It’s a simple matter of mathematics that if 50% of the population is at war with the other 50%, then the planet will be in total disarray.
The truth is, men and women have gotten along for tens of thousands of years, and every time we’ve tried to separate them into different species, we’ve created confusion, not revelation.
- Our lives have a plan and we are learning our destiny.
It reminds me of the guy who sat in a cubicle thinking he was at a bus stop waiting for transportation. He stayed there for three hours. Finally someone asked hin what he was doing.
“I’m waiting for a bus.”
The passerby responded, “Well, you won’t catch it here. This is just an old abandoned coffee shop.”
Life is meant to be lived at your pace, with your ideas and your passion. Nobody is sitting in heaven planning your future and nobody on earth really cares that much.
As you can see, if the axiom is inaccurate, the end result is always frustration.
