We did not start with the ‘boys.’

And now that they are adults, at least in body, it seems to be too late.

Take Indian ‘Lynching‘ culture. Or lynchings anywhere. It is Never a One-to-One business. They just don’t have the Courage. Because what they were taught, in their families, or the ‘church,’ has been just Crap. It did not make them ‘Men.’

Everlasting Endurance and the ECF : A Story about Never Losing Hope

*******

Here I am Reblogging a Very good post about Not Losing Hope.

While I do this, I think that it might help Many if I would share, in very short, my own life story here.

As a young man I had Very Low and Poor opinions of myself. Nothing to do with my Upbringing. I have had Excellent Parents. But Psychology had not developed, or shall We say Reached, all corners.

Anyway, while I had the Full Support of my Parents, I Always seemed to come against Walls.

What helped me was what I shall call ‘Bull Headedness.’

I kept on and on in trying to go forward.

But I think an Important ‘In-between’ step was that I used Every Opportunity to stay Afloat; made use of Every opening, – instead of waiting for the (so called) perfect situation.

And today I stand like a Strong Tree!

Wish You All the Same.

Hearty Kudos to Imani.
