Caustic (adj) sarcastic in a scathing and bitter way.
Being negative to another human being when positive energy could be beneficial is a great offense.
But equally as caustic is to piously tell folks they can do things that they can’t. It is cruel, mean-spirited and to a large degree, self-righteous
–simply because we want to be known for giving flowers instead of stopping and working with people’s soil, and teaching them how to get something to grow.
Life is not about me. Rather, it’s about me learning to be honest with myself, and then gradually sharing with the world around me.
Yet I will tell you–it is sarcastic, bitter, childish and ridiculous to take humans who have chosen mediocrity and insist that they are just as valuable as those who are laying their lives down to discover greater purpose.
If the truth makes us free, then anything short of that freedom is bondage.
For after all, you can tie people up with fuzzy bows just as easily as you can with barbed wire.
