Have you ever noticed how people who are seemingly intelligent, do the most ignorant things because the people around them do? Instead of researching facts on their own, they base their decisions by what is socially accepted.
I started to think about this issue today because I spoke to a very dear friend of mine, whom I believe is socializing with the wrong crowd. His use of marijuana has gone from occasional, to regular. He is extremely intelligent, talented, and successful. Im so scared this very special person will disappear, because of his ignorant habit.
What could I do? I can’t force him to stop, he is not a child, and you can’t ditch friends. I basically spent the next hour, researching about cannabis and the direct effect it has on the brain. I then sent him an email with easy to understand diagrams, and pictures. I picked out specific sections that affect his career directly, and what concerns he should have.
The only cure for this virus called “ignorance” is knowledge. Guard yourself from following the crowd, and prevent the virus from spreading. In the age of Google, wikipedia, and Iphone Apps, there is no excuse for anyone not to do a little research.
When you love someone so much, how do you let go?
Many times people feel that letting go is a form of failure. However, it is often overlooked that the final step of love is always a form of letting go. Whether it be by death, divorce, or break up, the last step is always a goodbye. This is the nature of love. The length of time you have together, is unknown, and it doesn’t determine the quality of that love either.
Quality should be determined by how true and pure your heart was at the moment you loved this person. Those memories you had, good or bad, made you into a better person. Any love driven by, greed, or selfish desires, are imitations on love and useless.
Time is not something we can control. Whether you want it or not time will continue to change everything. Don’t fight it, but cherish the moments you have. 🙂
“You told me that you loved another, I wish I were dead.”
This amazes me, over a hundred years ago this is how someone would express a broken heart. ( picture, text, and music). Impressive. I wonder if you are suppose to sing it when you recieve it?
The next time you grab your smart phone and text your sorrows, try putting a little more effort. 😉
