I deleted a “friend” a couple days back on here. I have known him for several years through shared interests and I even met him once.
We had discussed my work, but as has been his tendency, it was projected out of a lens in his mind that considered himself superior; a most cynical and self-destructive lens of focus – then he said;
“Don’t bother updating me.”
The moment he said that he was gone from my life.
The voice that spoke in him was cynicism and self-loathing. It would be utter insanity to feed such a wolf. You attract what you feed.
Calm seas do not make a great mariner. But a calm clear mind with boundaries that support an atmosphere of growth makes for a fruitful sail through rough waters.
– in other words – don’t give pearls to metaphorical swine.
