"Slavery ended over 150 years ago. Move on." Yet, you won't take down mass produced effigies of those who fought to keep black people enslaved, even though, as you say, we should be moving on. Yet we still force black kids to go to schools named after soldiers who fought to keep their ancestors enslaved. How does that not turn your stomach?? Yeah, and everyone totally stopped drinking alcohol during prohibition simply because it was illegal, just like how you totally don't smoke weed because it's illegal.(/sarcasm)
If you think the suffering ended because it was illegal to own people, you're lying to yourself. If you think the abuse and oppression isn't bleeding into the present day, you're being willfully ignorant. There's not a neutral zone to be had here. You're either helping or hurting. Just because you don't understand or haven't experienced that point of view doesn't make it not real.
How are you loving & serving others? Are you helping or hurting? Everyone needs help and you may be the answer they are looking for. Let's not wait until it's too late to realize (WE)YOU have the HELP and HOPE someone desperately needs! Seek to do your part and help someone else. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Don't wait until another death, divorce, illness, suicide, mass shooting, natural disaster or tragedy to come together and find a sense of community. START NOW!!! If you’ve gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care— then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don’t push your way to the front; don’t sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand. (Philippians 2:4 Message)
•🤔• What y’all think? •📍• They call us “The Optimistic Generation.” But they say we are “Too Optimistic.” And studies show that this may be the most optimistic generation that America has ever seen. But is this optimism helping us or hurting us? Because while many of us are working towards a better future, grinding and putting in the time and getting our hands dirty, some of us are, as stated in another article, “just inflating ourselves like balloons” and believing in a bright future without putting forth the required work to create one. •📍• So I’d like your opinions. Do you believe this newfound optimism our generation possesses, despite our student loan debt, poor societal condition, poor economic condition, etc is a good thing or a bad thing? •📍• COMMENT BELOW if you’d like to respond 🗣
Couldn't go past this topic this week - the Nutella chaos or riots depending upon the news source http://ab.co/2rKJk6X. My question for you is, was this a smart marketing decision or a total disaster? We have seen similar events here, does the Aldi Dyson discount vacuum ring any bells? Nintendo created similar scenes when it released the Mini Nintendo Classic. Do you think these type of blitz sales help or hurt a brand? Is this good for your customers? #socialsunday#mmmnutella#helpingorhurting ? #businessboost ?
Okay so this is the youtuber who has been helping me a lot. I found him only 3 days ago but he's already had such a big impact on me. I immediately threw away my razor after watching like 5 of his videos. He talks about a lot of stuff like selfharm, depression, anorexia etc. Now I'm WARNING you, he is RUDE & BRUTAL af. He's not nice about these things, shows no sympathy and even jokes around with it a little bit. Many people have said he's a horrible person for saying these things and others (like myself) thank him for his videos and saving their lives! So if you're someone who is easily offended I recommend you not to watch his vids. However, if you do decide to watch please don't immediately judge him bc at first I was like what a dumb, naive & stupid asshole! But then I was like well he has a fucking point tho....! I'll shut up now just go watch and tell me what you think!
His 2 channels:
I just want to add that he's obv not right about everything but still helps me personally so I thank him!
Some people want to see you grow, while others want you to stay the same. Some things help you expand while others hinder you. Figure out what's what and who's who.
