Monochrome Monday ~ Ebony and Ivory

monochrome photography shows the darkness in the soul

In these politically correct days are we even allowed to listen to this song any more.  You know what?  I don’t care what sad, narrow-minded people think, I like this Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder Duet.

Oh maybe they were talking about piano keys.

In these woke days they can’t be made of ivory either.

But maybe ebony is O.K.

but positively monochrome

Steadfast in Friendship

it’s a good life for those who don’t weaken and break

~

a friend in need is a friend indeed

~

a steadfast friend is unchanging and faithful

behave constantly, honestly, and courageously

~

a true friend is trustworthy, honest, open, and supportive

live with passion and conviction even in the face of opposition

~

a sure friend is dependable, reliable, constant, and unwavering

~

be like the cliff against which the waves continually break

but it stands firm and tames the fury of the waters around it

Prisoner of Covid

the summer solstice
day 455 of coronavirus house arrest

Today, June 21st 2021, was supposed to be the end of lockdown, the day on which all Covid-19 restrictions were to have been removed and we English would be free to live normal lives again.  Instead, our imprisonment stretches into the future, with a new release date set for the 19th of July, perhaps, maybe, if you can believe Prime Minister Boris Johnson, which I don’t because he’s a proven philandering, lying, cheat.

Why is lockdown set to go on and on and on when it’s all a gross perversion of the natural duties of doctors, politicians, and government officials?  The whole sorry saga provides a chilling example of how a taste of almost unlimited power and prestige, wielded through secret committees, can distort the judgement of supposedly moral and intelligent people.

Those now in power justify their needlessly cruel rules, regulations and laws as necessary to help mankind at large, and specifically to protect our National Health Service.  In reality they are feeding their own egos and pockets at the expense of the people.

There is no one with sufficient courage and morals to let go of the power they have stolen over us ~ besides they like it too much.  They have all sat there too long for any good they have been doing.  They will not likely be forgiven, if ever.  The people are angry.

Random Jottings ~ Lies

no woman ever lies about how much they drink
or where they’ve just been

~

a woman will ask a question when she already knows the answer

so lying to her is usually  is futile

~

the perfect man

doesn’t drink, doesn’t smoke, doesn’t lie, doesn’t cheat

and doesn’t exist

~

never lie to a woman, unless it’s also a compliment

~

you can always tell when a politician is lying

it’s when they’re talking

~

a good liar is an expert at deceiving himself

~

a lie can be half-way around the world

before the truth has got its boots on

they lie just for fun

misunderstandings and rejections

Following on from this morning’s post Rejection in Relationships, I thought I’d let you listen to this song by Simply Red.  It says a lot about what it feels like to be rejected inside a relationship / marriage.  It hurts, a lot.

If you find yourself listening to this kind of song

then I’m guessing you’re not happy

and it’s time to move on

sometimes, it’s time to walk away

Rejection in Relationships

a healthy relationship doesn’t drag you down

misery is never acceptable

Who here has never been dumped?  I have, more than once, and it hurts.  However, I firmly believe that what hurts worse than being rejected and dumped is being rejected by your spouse or partner while the relationship goes on between you.  You are still mostly living together, but that’s the most you can say of it.  You may even be having sex, but it’s lacking in intimacy and is nothing more than satisfying some animal lust.  Bad sex is worse than no sex at all, and in a toxic relationship sex is all about power.

Everything in the world is about sex except sex.  Sex is about power.  ~  Oscar Wilde

Some signs of being rejected inside a relationship are that you avoid being together, you hardly ever talk and when you do there is no real communication, communication descends into arguments, recriminations, and raised voices, you don’t trust your partner at all, one of you drinks far too much, and the chances are that you are being cheated on.  Anyhow, if your partner is rejecting you then you already know.  Being rejected can hurt for a while, being rejected inside a relationship makes you miserable forever, or until you find the courage to walk out.

If you don’t trust your partner / spouse, if you don’t let them anywhere near your money, if you go to counseling alone or to a 12 step group, if you are being mentally, psychologically or physically abused, if you feel like a doormat, if you are always walking on eggshells ~ then it’s time to have an escape plan.  The thing is that, anyone who can subject someone they profess to care for to the misery of rejection is themselves a deeply damaged person.  In psychology Anti-Social has some very specific meanings, it describes someone who has no conscience, no empathy, no sense of right and wrong, no guilt.  Anti-Social people are promiscuous, often abuse alcohol and drugs, they cheat and steal, are narcissistic, and often they will break the law; things like petty theft or driving under the influence.  Someone who will reject their partner or spouse is deeply Anti-Social.

And beware because simple rejection can escalate into Gaslighting, a form of extreme psychological abuse.  If you suffer from anxiety, depression, question your own sanity ~ then you are being gaslighted.  If that is you, and you sometimes fear for your own safety, or even your own life, then it’s not time to walk away, it’s time to run.

Dangerous Liars

some say that women make the best liars

and that a woman will lie about anything

just to stay in practice

~

some say men lie the most

but women tell the biggest lies

~

women lie about their feelings

while most men speak the truth very easily

~

women love the lie that saves their pride

but never an unflattering truth

~

secrets and lies kill relationships

no matter how careful you are, you will get caught

~

women lie the most when they lie to themselves about a man

~

everybody lies, but mature women lie more than most

~

some women can make a man fall in love with their lies
