The Avaricious and the Bellicose

The Avaricious and the Bellicose“They’ll either want to kill you, kiss you, or be you.” ~ Suzanne Collins

The Avaricious and the Bellicose. Come on, we all know them, they are just otherwise known as Haters or Internet trolls and if you are a Second Life model or a dedicated blogger, sooner or later you’re going to get up close and personal with one. Human behavior has been as it is for century’s now, it’s not some new phenomenon; envy is one of our biggest challenges in life. And honestly, being nice or not nice, doing or not doing, someone somewhere will hate you no matter what your response is. It’s just a sad fact of life. So right off the bat, don’t be immature and think everyone will like you. Do the best to walk quietly with all whom you encounter but when you meet a hater realize, envy sucks but everyone liking you ain’t gonna happen. Distancing your emotions from the hurt allows you to be free to look at the world without those little pink sunglasses.

The Avaricious and the Bellicose“Envy is the art of counting the other fellow’s blessings instead of your own.~Harold Coffin”

I think the best we can do is accept their emotion, but realize typically it’s not YOU they are angry with, they just want something you HAVE, or ironically don’t have, depending on what “it” is. Because to tell the truth, when it comes down to a new pair of Jimmy Choos or pay my mortgage I can be pretty darn envious of the person whose house is paid for. And ironically, one of the odd things about life is whatever they are envious of; typically it is merely on loan to you, because we’ve probably all experienced something that was taken away. So the best we can do with the gifts bestowed upon us is to enjoy them while we have them, hold them sincerely but most of all never use them to harm others. If they are taken away, I would certainly hope the people around me would recognize I only used my gifts to promote the good of society and not to be malicious to others because you don’t realize how many splinters you’ve created on the ladder your climbing until you begin to slide down.

Take from? Yes, the world is filled with avaricious and bellicose people, it’s a fact of life. What limits their affect on us is how we respond to them. Motivational speaker Harvey MacKay, put it quite eloquently when he said, “Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about those who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it.” All SLURL’s are under the “Last known SLURL’s page” to the left!

  1. Great advice, and sometimes it really boils down to intent and attitude. Like the use of avaricious and bellicose.

    By the way I’m quite envious of those shoes. chuckles. I got the python set from E-clipse, because I can’t pass up anything with animal skin.

I'm done inconveniencing electrons, any thoughts? Come on, you know you have 'em, post them up here.
