Post #47 of 50
In remaining consistent with the flavor and content thus far on this thread, I’m still in agreement with what was previously stated by others that in Mexico “one size doesn’t fit all.”
More important it should be realized that indeed, ones personal choice should not be judged as “right or wrong.” It’s a personal choice but for some ongoing unsavory reason there is always that someone who wants to be publicly “right.”
We are not blind to this unfortunate overriding personal need of a few. They very cleverly prop you up with a compliment, then discharge a left hook to knock you down, again and again to make themselves “right.”
In other words, if one has to consistently be right, it is at the expense of making someone else “wrong.” It doesn’t take long for this to become glaring clear not just here amongst ourselves and universally as well. Moreover, why? Could ones personal ego possibly play a very large part in this?
This tendency, this compulsion, can be viewed as less than desirable and its negative implications unnecessary. Voiced personal choice is healthy but when negative encroachment by some remains consistent as habit, this in of it self, gets old real fast.
Why, because its design and intention is to negatively polarize. Akin to the horrendous news media technique of latching onto one’s attention with a negative, controversial spin intended to garner greater public attention at the expense of anyone or anything. This is perhaps why some of us don’t enjoy watching the news but they know many still do, out of habit. Sheeesh!
Incidentally Gringal, I believe my previous post to you was also meant for others as well and it was not malicious in nature. If reread carefully its clear it was intended to help others in need, which I’m sure many welcome. I kind of felt it had a little more substance and was a bit more entertaining than discussing a portraits facial characteristics. Then again, it’s all a matter of intention and personal choice.
Hasta luego, Adios
