Crowns play tricks on the heads they lie upon

‘Crowns do queer things to the heads beneath them’

Tyrion Lannister (GOT)

Just that you do the right thing. The rest doesn’t matter. Cold or warm. Tired or well-rested. Despised or honored

Power can do some strange things as Marcus Aurelius had to remind himself to do the right thing, one can only imagine what power lay at his hands and the temptation it would have come with it.

Modern day we have world leaders despite growing evidence that we do not have a massive killer disease at hand still locking down their citizens

Whether they think they’re doing the right thing or their is something bigger at play I dont know.

(Probably the latter)

What they do is out of our control, we can’t control decisions they make,

But control how we act and react to them.

We can do the right thing

We can protest peacefully, whilst police use their force.

We can read actual science and not the news papers, to educate ourselves and others on what’s actually happening.

Or if you feel it’s the right thing you can stay inside.

Whatever you do, do what you think is the right thing

Force The World To Deal With You

You have to decide who you are and force the world to deal with you, not with its idea of you.

James Baldwin

Everyone has a perception of who you are or who they want you to be,

Your friends,partners,parents,employer/ees.

They may tell you that you can’t do something, that you shouldn’t do something, that you’re not right for this or that

Because their version of you, you can’t.

And battling with other peoples perceptions can be draining.

But just because they don’t agree with what you are or want to do because it doesn’t fit their idea of you

Doesn’t mean you should not do it,

After all their perception of you is their problem.

Who you are

Be it.

They can deal with it or not, either way not your problem.
