Breaking-Point

Howdy folks! 

Everyone has a breaking point with varying degrees of threshold levels among us. 

Some have a very low threshold of tolerance and patience and with these people, if they're a part of our lives, walking on eggshells around them is often how we deal with them or we try to avoid them whenever possible. We have a greater tendency to try to please them because we don't want to deal with them when they're displeased. We hope to avoid a combative confrontation.

Some have a high threshold of tolerance and have a lot of patience. These people we can easily take advantage of and not necessarily realise we are, until that is, they reach their breaking point and usually, a person with a high threshold learns how to hold inside themselves a number of things they've tolerated, put up with, until they reach their breaking point. Then watch out because all they've kept pent up, they will likely unleash and show their accumulated frustration all at once.

People with a low threshold, we expect frequent adverse and angry reactions from. But, people with a high threshold, we suddenly are taken aback when they react to us adversely and then, we think they've gone off the deep end, when really they've simply reached their breaking point.

I think the best to try and cultivate for ourselves is the 'middle ground' and try not to expect someone else to accept/put up with something we wouldn't likewise accept or tolerate ourselves. We should cultivate tolerance and patience but not to the point where we don't establish boundaries for ourselves, thus letting others walk all over us as a result. ..And the Golden Rule we should always apply.

With every struggle in life, there's a cost to one's supply
Of their strength, courage, and hope needed to apply.
The cost will depend upon each struggle's intensity
And the number of to face throughout life's history.

When there are few in number, of a lesser count,
Or aren't very difficult to rise above, surmount,
Those who struggle less say, want it understood,
Life is not so bad, but is wonderful and good.

It's easy to stay positive when there's less to face;
When instead of mountains, there are hills in place.
When one's road is less difficult, it's easy for them
To, those on a tougher journey, be critical of, condemn.

When there are many struggles and/or are hard to bear,
Those afflicted with grow weary from the wear and tear.
Over time the wear is costly since it's accumulative,
Until eventually the toll can reduce one's will to live.

When weariness reaches its limits very near 
And the person has to face; another mountain, clear,
If their strength, their courage, and their hope is thin,
Another stressful situation can/will then do them in.

Everyone has a limit as to how much they can take;
Some more than others before they will break.
Those who can take a lot are often then expected
To handle anything thrown at, onto them projected.

One with a higher tolerance level often gets used
Until they say, "Enough" and then will be abused
Because there are some who, advantage, take
And care not or think of, for another's sake.

We shouldn't expect of others what we wouldn't do;
Anything we would not accept and would object to.
When we expect of others that to, we would object,
We feed our selfish ego which on us then will reflect.

Sometimes though, in life we do have to ask
Because we need another to do for us a task.
If this be the case, for reasons too numerous to say,
Appreciation and gratefulness we must too relay.

Therefore, before others we ask of or expect,
We must be thoughtful of and must show respect;
Realise they have a Breaking Point as we, ourselves, do;
We can't just assume for us they can always come through.

We must keep in mind since we can't ever really know
How much one is dealing with but chooses not to show.
Nor do we know their burdens, how great their weight,
When we dump on others expecting them to tolerate.

In life it's said, the more we rise above and get through,
The stronger we will be and this may well be true,
But there's still a Breaking Point, which beyond we cannot go
And even among the strongest, there's still a call for "No".

💗 Have a blessed day! 💗

Anyone-Can

Howdy folks! 

"Anyones number many, are present everywhere;
Exceptions number few and to find, are indeed, rare."
~ Artsieladie Quote  

"When we settle for being an anyone, we forfeit our unique
And we allow at best mediocrity to, for us then speak."
~ Artsieladie Quote  

"Anyone can be an anyone. It takes no special skill
When one's ego is in charge, controlling their free will."

Anyone Can steal; Anyone Can lie;
Anyone Can cheat and then deny.
Anyone Can be resentful and bitter,
Give up easily and be then, a quitter.

Anyone Can allow themselves to hate;
Feed into their ego and perpetuate.
Anyone Can serve only their own selfish gain;
Be greedy for possessions to hoard as they obtain.

Anyone Can be thoughtless, hurtful, and crude;
Inconsiderate, obnoxious, spiteful, and rude.
Anyone Can be phony, fake, and superficial;
Project a version of themselves that's artificial.

Anyone Can bully, be mean and ostracise,
Judge others unfairly and always criticise.
Anyone Can hold grudges, be unforgiving;
Be irresponsible in the life they are living.

Anyone Can be arrogant and demanding,
Without empathy or any understanding.
Anyone Can treat others with contempt,
While from the same, feel they are exempt.

Anyone Can encroach upon another's life,
Create havoc, cause undue stress and strife.
Anyone Can violate laws and crimes commit
Just because they reason to and so, see fit.

Anyone Can, through their life, breeze,
And not give a damn, live as they please,
Without any regards for others to care;
Take, take, take and never give or share.

Anyone Can talk a good talk and promises make,
That with a grain of salt only others should take.
Anyone Can against others commit wrong,
Then refuse blame that with them does belong.

Anyone Can do easy; do only what's desired
Where no self restraint or effort is required.
Anyone Can give in to all of life's temptations,
Then make excuses for their character's limitations.

There are so many things that Anyone Can do,
Requiring no quality characteristics for one to pursue.
'Anyones' settle for their least and for being weak;
Settle for being common and forfeit their unique.

To be an 'anyone' it takes no special skill;
No courage whatsoever to follow ego's will.
'Anyones' say and do whatever comes to mind;
Have no self control, care not if they're unkind.

'Anyones' are a dime a dozen and are seen everywhere,
While exceptional 'exceptions' are indeed so rare.
The world of 'anyones' is vast; densely populated
With those who think 'exceptions' are highly overrated.

Anyone Can be an 'anyone', blend into today's crowd,
Where they are justified; where egos are so proud;
Where self promotion thrives, modesty does not;
Where society, morals and honesty, no more has got. 

Anyone Can be an 'anyone', the easiest route to take,
Where good character doesn't exist to ever be at stake.
But without good character, self worth is non-existent,
As is self discipline to, bad behaviours, be resistant.

'Exceptions' are the exception; 'anyones' are the rule,
With the 'anyones' believing they are each a jewel.
Anyone Can be an 'anyone' to fit into today's norm,
But to be an 'exception' requires much character reform.

Anyone Can be an 'anyone' but an 'exception' cannot be,
Unless they change course, cultivating traits of integrity.
Herein lies the problem since tremendous effort is required.
To be an 'exception', the change to, must foremost be desired.

Anyone Can be an 'anyone'. It's the easiest way to be.
Hence, the plentiness of 'anyones' makes up a giant sea.
So, if we choose to be an 'anyone', there is nothing else to say,
While being an 'exception', speaks volumes words cannot portray.

Profit-Pie

Howdy folks! 

It's all one vicious cycle and we, the people, are footing the bill both in our wallets and with our health. Cancer is a BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY and so are all the other big and prominent diseases, like diabetes. There's no interest really in "prevention" of the diseases because if the diseases were to be eradicated, it would then be bye-bye to all the huge profits being made from treating the symptoms of them. Elementary! 

The FDA is 'supposed to be' in place to PROTECT the people and our welfare, our health. What a crock! It's under big pharma's control. So, the FDA cannot serve the best interests of the people AND the best interests of big pharma too. Simple logic! It's like having the fox in charge of the hen house.

If our government really cared about the people, there would be in place laws and enforced ordering all the crap (chemicals and chemically processed additives, artificial junk, like preservatives, sweeteners, flavours, colours, etc.. the list is long) be removed from our food, water, and environment and all GMOs would be banned. But our government won't EVER do this because big business and wealthy corporations run this country and 'who' has control of these? The wealthy 1% elitists who are covertly plotting/planning a NWO agenda (New World Order), which is to take over and control the ENTIRE world. NOT good!

But the vast majority of peoples (note: plural) are still in the dark: sleeping, ignoring, indifferent, etc.. It's really so ridiculous it isn't funny that 1% can control the 99% but it's because the 99% can't get it together and mostly because people cater to and focus on petty differences. But, 'divide and conquer' is the elitist plan and it's working because the 99% aren't uniting against them.

But back to the topic... Not only does big pharma benefit from a continued practice of keeping people sick, but so does the medical field; so does the weight loss industry; so do all the insurance companies, therefore lots of attorneys on both sides of the equation AND we can be sure our elected politicians are being well compensated also. They are all just a bunch of glorified thugs and thieves! It's really so sickening, despicable, wicked... just way beyond words or comprehension.


"Eradicate the causes; then watch what disappears;
Symptoms and the profits made by all the racketeers.
When there are no symptoms available to treat,
All the profits made from will crash into defeat."

"The causes of disease won't be eradicated,
Because the profits from treating symptoms
Would then be completely eliminated!"
~ Artsieladie Quotes 

"Profit Pie"
(image pending)

Keep the people sick. Keep the people ill
For profit's being made from each and every pill.
The more pills we take; the more pills we need,
The more we help Big Pharma to satisfy their greed.
Causes of disease must be kept in place
So treating of the symptoms can keep their profit base.
While Big Pharma benefits, their profits growing yearly,
With our health and money, we pay the cost severely.

Our food laced with chemicals, artificial, processed crap,
Genetically modified junk, sets the disease begetting trap.
With tons of sugar added and loads and loads of salt,
Ingredients known as harmful, insuring disease by default.
As long as we, the people, are with ailments and disease,
Our money can be taken for their profit gains, with ease.

The food industry sets the stage, the bakers of the pie,
Invites in other fingers, none of which are shy.
Their recipe is simple, made of our blood and sweat.
As we struggle to survive, they steal all that they can get.
As we're slowly cooked, we're bled until we're dry.
When our pockets are all empty, they care not if we die.

Yes, we, the people, are finger licking good,
'Cause without us, the greedy have no profit livelihood!
Still, the tasty, main ingredient of this, the Profit Pie,
Is not we, the people, but the money we supply.
Oh, the pie's delicious, delectable and sweet,
With the greedy gorging on the profits by deceit.

Beneficiaries are awarded with the rolling of the dice,
With Big Pharma and the lawyers winning each the biggest slice.
The weight loss industry is in, lapping up its share of gravy
From the pie, a sea of profits with no patrolling Navy.
The medical field has a chunk, not too shabby is its size
With the charges by the doctors ever increasing, on the rise.

Our FDA, the referee, is under fox patrol.
How safe are the people when Big Pharma has control?
Health insurance companies now have the upper hand,
Since we've been forced to buy through an executive demand.
Which brings up to mention our politicians' roles.
Though they won't admit it, they're on one or more doles.
Oh, the elitists' Profit Pie serves mighty well, their greed,
Their hearts with no conscience, who, on innocent people, feed.

"When lust for money takes precedence and thrives;
Humanity regresses when money's valued more than lives."

💗 Have a blessed day! 💗
