You know that point in a relationship when trust has been lost? One, or both, parties have been inauthentic for long enough that the connection between them is severed. Once trust is gone nothing the other person says or does holds any value and it’s hard, impossible, to come back from.
That’s how I feel about media, government and corporations. Particularly around the circus we see playing out in the world today. This is my message to them…
“For decades I stuck with you and gave you the benefit of the doubt that you might be telling the truth and perhaps even acting in my best interest. But the corruption and contradictions you’re spewing into society is over the top. And now your rampant censorship and blatant lies. You’ve pushed too far, you’ve abused my trust, and I’m done”.
“I know it’s partly my fault for letting it get to this but you had a responsibility too. It’s at the point now where you’re no longer creating an environment where I can be my best me. You are stifling, limiting and controlling, and quite frankly, you’re acting like a spoiled selfish child with no supervision. I can’t follow someone who isn’t growing with the rest of us“.
“It used to be said the opposite of love is hate. It isn’t. The opposite of love is indifference. I don’t know if what you say is truth anymore. And honestly I don’t care. If you feel you need to continue to manage and manipulate and pull strings to make yourself feel important, fine. But find someone else who will participate in your games. Nothing you say registers with me anymore … You can beg, plead and shout all you want. I understand this is hard to take. But it’s too late, I’m already gone. My loyalties are now with myself, my neighbors, friends and family and humanity as a whole. People, not you.”
“I’m sorry Old Paradigm. We had a lot of fun and I wish you could change with the rest of us, I really do. But I know you can’t, and you’ve just pushed too far. I’ve moved on. We’ve all moved on. I’m staying at a friend’s tonight. I’ll pick up my things next week”.
