NOVEMER 17, 2021: “The OTHER Golden Rule” …

Most everyone has probably already heard that age old Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have done unto you”, but lemme ask you this: Have you heard the other Golden Rule … “Circa 2021” by The REAL Cat Williamson …

Perhaps you’ve heard it said before, “we train others how to treat us” – NOTHING could be further from the truth. We learn how to treat us based solely upon the treatment we choose to accept from others. So, with that, what’s even more important than “training others how to treat us” is “training US to treat us”!

The way we believe about, treat, and even speak to and about ourselves sets the gold standard for the treatment, behaviors, and “speak” we receive from others. If we allow ourselves to speak to us like SHIT, why would anyone else think it’s not okay to speak to us like SHIT?

The only way to change the voice in your inner head is to change the language in which you speak to yourself. Let’s face it – NOTHING good EVER comes from a person who talks to and treats themselves like shit. Unless you’re one of the truly fortunate people who somehow managed to escape their childhood in one piece, chances are that there’s a younger version of you living just beneath the scars you wear as an adult who NEEDS to hear all the things they never heard when they were a kid, SO SAY THEM! Say them kindly. Say them sweetly. Say them gracefully, gently, and FORGIVINGLY!

AND REMEMBER THIS:

Nothing ’bout you is ordinary, so if your friends all say you’re goin’ crazy, DON’T LISTEN TO A WORD THAT THEY SAY! Let the voices in you head be legendary and don’t ever tell ’em where the bodies are buried … it’ll keep ’em coming back every day!

{“Real Cat” Adaptation to “Attention Attention!” by Shinedown}

ATTENTION ATTENTION!

Attention! Attention! Get down on the floor! Don’t reach for your pockets, don’t run for the door! Attention! Attention! It’s urgent, it’s real! The cameras are rolling, the envelopes sealed! Attention! Attention! By the way did I mention? The stories I hear are the stories I tell – like jumping over buildings and sneaking outta hell! Intention! Retention! It’s all in your head! That greedy little mistress they tied in in your bed. Attention! Attention! By the way did I mention? Nothing ’bout me is ordinary. My friends all say I’m going crazy. I don’t hear a word that they say. ‘Cause the voices in my head are legendary, but I’ll never tell ’em where the bodies are buried. Keeps them coming back every day! Oh no! Oh no! They’re just villains in my mind doin’ time. Oh no! Oh no! They’re just matches burning holes in my soul. Attention! Attention! ‘Cause this ain’t a stunt. The judges are racist. The juries corrupt. The shelves are all empty, but the seats are all filled. You’re a shiny new penny, I’m a hundred dollar bill. Attention! Attention! By the way did I mention? Nothing ’bout me is ordinary. My friends all say I’m going crazy … {Shinedown}
