    "Someone once settled everything the way it should be. We wake up, do something, then go to sleep. If we take a wider angle, every day - is a life itself. We are born, live and finally die. Are we powerless to influence this stream? Can we change the time flow? As we do every day? If we have some unfinished business - we stay up late. From the other side - if we are too tired we go to bed early. Perhaps it works the same way with whole our life. There is only one thing. When we are unconscious, dream or dead, what's happening? Where are we?"

    "It takes a war to create a warrior," great line @Lyon Brave. So many people try to hard to be PC and it is through stories of adversity, because we all experience adversity (some more than others) that we learn, we are not alone. We can learn from each other. We can grow together. I won't hide who I am, I've worked to hard to get here and I will continue working towards a better me as long as I am alive and able. But, I will also continue to share stories that can affect many and some of those stories aren't always rainbows and butterflies. I think it's easier to relate to others when they share their human side as well. I love hearing uplifting stories too but strife is real.

    "Sometimes it’s not until you have experienced suffering, that you can sense it in others. "

    That is so beautifully written, I love it. Having gone through suffering, as everyone does, strengthens the empathy within!

    And that, goes a long way.

    Thanks for writing this, Lyon!

    Love the message of empowerment and personal responsibility here. You're right, we are ALL damaged, and that includes all the people we think have it much easier than us. You know who I think is the most miserable person in North America? Donald Trump. The man who supposedly Has It All..money, a smoking-hot wife, fame, and now he's one of the most powerful woman in the world. Yet he is so abjectly, pathetically miserable. He feels so weak and helpless and vulnerable inside. He knows inside he's a total loser (one of the few things I agree with him on). You can see this is how he really feels about himself every time he has to attack other people, particularly people 'weaker' than he (for being female, or even worse, a "fat" female, for having a disability, for being a Muslim, for being a Muslim with a dead son who was more of a patriot than Trump will ever be, etc.)

    We are all damaged, every last one of us, and some are just better at covering it up than others. But no matter how good someone looks on social media, somewhere in their life they're feeling scared, inadequate and probably like a total loser (much media attention now for the Imposter Syndrome). I loved especially what you said about *really looking people*, knowing that there's a whole person in there that you can't see. It's so easy for us to objectify each other and just slap a label on them (asshole/bitch/racist/nazi/SJW etc.)

    This is one of the best pieces you've ever written, Lyon.

    Yesterday I listened to a news story on the battle going on in Barcelona over a people wanting recognition as a separate nation ( I believe this was the intent) The Catalonians...Then I listened to another story later about the Kurds. The US is so divided by so many "Thems', more so than I've witnessed in my lifetime.
    Then I had to wonder; was I living in a bubble, did this always exist and I just didn't see it. Who are all these hate mongers crawling out of the woodwork? They are not part of the America I loved. Is there anywhere left to go where diversity is seen as something of value or are we all truly being forced into cloning? I don't like my country any more.

    Moving to South Africa as a foreigner (a white foreigner) in 1999 there was still an attitude of celebrating our diverse cultural background. We were trying our best to be that rainbow nation. Now things are different. Whilst the people look into each others eyes and make a judgement call on who that person is rather than what they are, things at the top are different. A divide and rule policy and a lot of finger pointing on all sides is taking place. Unfortunately we have to all admit that as humans we still mainly judge each other for what we are rather than who we are.

    #35 if we were to talk in lines of caste ,Dalit and Non dalit.

    I belong to the upper caste despised by dalits, Himalayas are a non caste environment, so is a lot of the non river basin belt.

    Ram Nath kovind is an example of a Dalit who traded civil liberties of his caste for upper caste pupilage.


    Fyi.. see the Child labour Act of india legislated on 28th July 2016. Most lowere caste children suffere from this. Most upper caste children languishing in poverty suffer from this.. Our Nobel laureate has been talking in a muffled voice over this.

    Nobody opposed the passage of this bill, there was no public outcry because the areas where they resented, it wasnt covered by the media.

    Post demonetisation, children have been forced to work for food and shelter and Govt has fudged the numbers of child labour.

    I voted for this Govt. I feel ashamed now.

    Urban educated Indians believe in outsourcing social welfare to really old people. A 90 year old won us our Right to privacy, a 75 yr old our right to information.

    As far as India is concerned, A dalit President is political appeasement to show that all is progressive while dalit and non dalit politicians screw the people.

    It is a sham

    Casteism is publicised based on incidents that happen after a boiling point on certain days. The poor are exploited every single day, amd yes the women and children.

    Any man with money in their pockets has never been exploited. After long drawn enquiries,this is the outcome every single time.

    Cultural anthropology teaches us that every culture in every era has a sense of "Them" and "Us". There are times when differences are appreciated, like when we go to a foreign country for a vacation, see sights unseen, and eat exotic food. But the every day experiences of diversity on our home turf are subject to heightened emotions. Trying to homogenize all concerned may only deepen resentments, rather than create a level playing field. The situation requires mentoring programs and management training that focus on diversity. In turn, those initiatives must be implemented from the top echelons of leadership, whether corporate or, in this case, political. The placement of this unusual individual may be more of a political move than a diversity one, but it may now be replicated. Even if such an appointment happened just once in every town, workplace, and agency in the country, the message would gradually move from expediency to normalization.

    #13 @Don 🐝 Kerr, "They have friends with two daddies and others with two mommies. They have no comprehension of why that is somehow anything but normal. My wife and I strive to keep that attitude alive." That's how my parents raised us during the 60's and on. It wasn't until I grew older and began 'hearing' of race issues that I realized there were people who weren't able to accept or tolerate people who were weren't white. It made my stomach turn, literally and I had a hard time comprehending why people were so 'ugly,' literally- I really had a hard time understanding hatred over differing colors. I'm ashamed to admit but where I live now, well it's rare to see many black people here. I grew up in a diverse town and it's real... the town I live in is proof as are many rural areas that they still aren't open to diversity. If my daughter didn't live here, I would move in a heartbeat.

    My hope for the future, our kids and grandchildren. It has to stop somewhere, and begin anew!

    There is diversity as an intelligence and there is diversity as a political and corporate conception. What diversity means to a politician or a typical corporate HR response is no where near diversity being an intelligence. Corporate and political speak is itself a conformity that plays out in similiar ways - so how the heck is that diverse?

    When the policy makers and political hacks all sound the same, then this idea of diversity is a product produced that resembles very little to the intelligence that should be diverse.

    Saying the right things and presenting oneself as diverse is another part of that branding song and dance that gets played, and that dance is definitely a conformist one, and nothing remotely like developing value from difference or recognizing diversity as an individual freedom and choice rather than a political or corporate conscription.

    Even the Chevelle band is not really diverse unless the four million albums it sold can be proven to be cutting cross boundaries. My guess is that there is a certain tribe who buys much of that music and so eventually the Chevelle's have their own marketing niche in which to sell records. The point here is not what the Chevelle's are but what marketing is and what politics is. Diversity should be that which is above those primal forces, but it is not.

    For sure acceptable prejudices as well damning prejudices prevail as do tribal separations Citing diversity initiatives does very little to all that stuff, which simply gets brushed under the carpet. Candor and difficult conversations are not the mainstay of diversity initiatives, but they should be - and as a Few Good Men Says - diversity initiatives often "cannot handle the truth".

    #15 I understand exactly where you are coming from @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt...I had a very lucrative and secure job with the government for over fifteen years...but when the culture changed drastically in the last five years of my employment, I found myself in a very hostile environment that eventually began to 'bleed through' my emotional body and manifest itself as physical illness...I became quite sick and nearly allowed myself to be consumed by it.

    I knew I had to remove myself from that environment or I would be lost to battling chronic illness for the rest of my life...It took five years from the time I made the decision to leave...I attended night school while continuing to work full time...Very long days they were...but my energy came from the desire to regain my health and personal power...I was miserable and sick for a reason...My spirit was being suffocated by my environment and forcing me to make a change.

    I did it on my own terms...put my time in to develop my new skills...began to build my practice before actually leaving my job...Then I cut the cord...I gave my notice and finished out my time in what I refer to now as 'Federal prison'...and I moved on to a successful practice of my own...I work very hard...but I do it for me;-) You can too...You sound like a very bright and polite guy and deserve much better than what you are experiencing now...Make small changes first...like not downing yourself just to be accepted by those who would love nothing more than to see you go under.

    #13 well that is how Corporates are working. Said bye bye to them 4 years back.

    The common thread in my limited experience.

    There is a lack of genuineness in bosses and employees. Somehow an honest attempt to have a positive impact or an honest attempt to share the burden of negativity hardly comes of. Everything is a shallow protocol.

    Maybe we havent reached the threshold where it becomes necessary to ship out the rot.

    You will find highly positive, polite, smiling and inspiring people from Asia ( India,China, South East) around you. But they would agree to the fact about the honesty bit.

    Truth be told you hit the nail, most of us lack self esteem here.

    #12 "I have seen colleagues mock those trying real hard to leave a positive impact." You know @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt...People who mock others for their efforts to better themselves have very little self-esteem and feed on making others miserable...You know how misery loves company my friend...

    In order to make a positive impact on others you first have to create that within yourself...and if you are working in an environment of denigration the simple answer is...You need to change that...and that in and of itself is not so simple. It takes a great deal of effort to switch gears and reinvent yourself...but in doing so you regain your personal power instead of bleeding it into the feeding frenzy of the 'shark tank.'

    Don't pretend to be more messed up in an effort to gain the approval of the very people you don't give a hoot about you...Speak your truth and see where it takes you...What have you got to lose by leaving it all behind? I can tell you what you lose by staying....Yourself my friend;-)

    Good results make everyone happy.

    In other cases.

    I can be happy with the effort and unhappy with the results i.e. feelig both.

    I have felt both for the most part of my life in a collaborative setting.

    When i honestly say the same people who feel the pinch of failure do not believe me. They only believe it when i pretend to be more messed up than they are, the guilt of having failed their efforts is what they want to see.

    Maybe i am in the wrong crowd but that is how it is. I have seen colleagues mock those trying real hard to leave a positive impact. Ive seen bosses who pressure employees for a feedback and lose all positivity when i tell them to stay professional or else ..try to be honest about how they feel.

    I simply do not know how to have a positive impact. When it is needed i mock myself alongwith everyone else.

    We seem to enjoy the frustration of work more than the joy of achievement.

    Thank you @Cyndi wilkins for tagging me. So glad to have read this. When you thought "" My first response was..."Sure it did!" , this came from the purest of intention derived from genuine feelings you have for your friend. You saw clearly she came to that point to find her own center. A gesture, suggestion to remember her inner heart desire when the opportunity arose you acted. This is the true foundation of " The law of attraction " what you intend for others will find you. Mark these words, watch for it. The same is now coming towards you. And just like the seemingly obscure circumstance of your being able to send that intention, from perhaps the most unlikely source, it will find you.

    Hi @Mac Gives, I don't find it hard at all but then again I never have my phone present when I'm interacting with another. I feel fortunate that when I'm with a good friend, they leave their cell phone in the purse or pocket. My husband used to have a bad habit of checking his phone constantly when we would go out to dinner, so I took my phone out one evening and did the same. He asked me why I was so quiet, not realizing I was mimicking him. After that evening, he has kept his phone aside and we enjoy our time much more now. I'd much rather remember a conversation than a text or email which can wait (MOST of the time).

    Good luck trying to get bad bloggers to find something useful to do. Writers can be the most egotistical people on the planet, convinced that their very lips (or, more to the point, fingertips), fairly drip with pearls of wisdumb. What we need, I suspect, is a Blogger Ranking...kind of like Google Ranking, but with algorithms identifying the crap blogs and giving them lower rank, the way Google does now to keyword-stuffers and paid backlinks and all the other practices bad website content writers and bloggers pulled in the past.

    #6 Jim, my disappointment factor in what I read on beBee is low. I feel what I select to read is written by the cream of the crop so perhaps my opinion is slanted. I'm not going to mention those that I like but I will say there are about 10 writers that I look for in my feed.

    Yes, I feel there are posts that ramble on about nothing and never come to a point, but to me, they are few and far between. I will try to read posts by authors that are new to me and I can usually determine right away if I am going to like a post and want to take the time to read it.

    I hope this addresses your question.
    Jim Murray
    22/09/2017 #6 Jim Murray
    I don't feel the need to elaborate on what I think is junk blogging or point to any specific posts or people. Everybody gets to form their own opinion of what that is. Because it will be something different to everyone. To me personally this means posts that just ramble on about nothing in particular without ever really coming to a point of any sort. But in actuality, all I did was ask if it was as prevalent here on beBee as it was two years ago on LI. I was collecting opinions to a pretty simple question. Put another way, how high is your disappointment factor in the posts you read here. If it's low, that's good if it high, not so much.

I can't even come close to your experience of acumen, hence why I post so little, but i do enjoy the conversations! Like @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador, I'd be interested to hear a more defined explanation of 'junk blogging' and I do hear you on those that use Bebee as a glorified FB page :) There's nothing quite as annoying as someone saying, '...shall I have cream or milk in my coffee'....
    Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador

    I find this relevant to beBee, especially due to the recent buzz posted by @Javier 🐝 beBee - https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/bebee-what-to-post-what-not-to-post. It would be beneficial, @Jim Murray, if you could furnish more details on what you consider "junk blogging". Not everyone is a proficient writer, such as yourself, but like to share their thoughts via a post/article/buzz, etc. Sure, there are items that I don't care for and/or not interested in, but maybe someone else is.

    I do become frustrated with topics that are repeated over and over again. I stopped reading posts on LI because if I saw one post on leadership, I saw 10 more. Same subject, a different slant, and nothing new to offer becomes boring.

    Of course, I prefer quality over quantity. That's why I am here.
    Jerry Fletcher
    21/09/2017 #3 Jerry Fletcher
    Jim, Yes it is relevant. There were great writings in magazines in another era and there were tons of lesser lights as well. The days of pitch letters and a nickel a word are long gone. Too bad, as the filters were in place and even the lesser publications had editors that accepted only the best of the crap. My take is that when you take money out of the equation the overall writing goes off a cliff. The other side of the equation is the reader. There is much too little time these days. The hectic rhythm of modern life gets in the way of serious reading. Add to that the fact that even reasonably put together execs I know don't read for pleasure or simple edification. Two I was having lunch with admitted that they read less than one book a month of either fiction or non-fiction!

    My answer for clients in the content arena is to write no more than twice a week and make sure the viewpoint is unique. Write as long or as short as it takes to get the point across and do it in a format that is comfortable for the reader you seek. Other than that I have no strong opinions.
    Chas ✌️ Wyatt
    21/09/2017 #2 Chas ✌️ Wyatt
    I find this to be as relevant for beBee at this point as it was for LI at the time you posted it. Being from an Ad-man background, I think you would understand this point; if the focus on monetary gain is removed from the equation and the content of the story becomes the sole focus, the quality of the story rises. Two of the articles I posted concerning this issue, were addressed by Ev Williams, the founder of Medium, and hence their reassessment of their focus. It is why I enjoy and repost from sites such as onbeing.org and https://possibilitychange.com The consistent depth and quality of stories on those sites impel me to return.

    #7 Hi Franci Eugenia,
    Yes, in this life, everything goes too fast. We are children, we grow, we build our family and soon we reach the old age. The days are short, the moments are scarce and it's up to us to know how to enjoy everything in the best way.
    I always say that we should not waste time with intrigues, sorrows and unnecessary discussions ... we must not waste these precious seconds that life offers us with futilities.
    But let us enjoy these good moments with our family, our parents, our children and the good friends that God has bequeathed to us.
    Yes, believe that there will be a time when we will realize that when we shake hands we do not hold our hearts. That who stays today can leave tomorrow and that our course is constantly changing.... This is the secret of life ... !!!

That's how life is though, the older we become, the faster time goes by. I will be forever grateful to my parents for their unconditional love, support and teachings. We all deserve to be treated with love and dignity, no matter the age- it seems as people become 'old' sadly, some are not given that accolade. I can only hope my own children will always treat me as they do now, with love and respect.

    #14 As your husband is a snail scientist, Lada, he will appreciate that McDonald's don't serve escargot because they are a fast food restaurant. 😂

    #12 Thanks, @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador, but not as scary as when I look in the mirror after a night on the town. 👻

    #6 Hey, Kev.
    The trouble with Tribbles, it's tricky to tell,
    Is Tribbles are hairy, and tickly as well,
    Don't trust a Tribble to tidy the reef,
    They're hard to control and full of mischief.

    you got me with the title and visual :-) I was really impressed by starfishes as a kid I used to collect them now they were not half as beautiful as the ones you introduced us to :-)

    While was reading your nicely written post, I was looking at the large Triton Trumpet's shells in my glass case, full of shells all over the world (my husband is a malacologist).
    Tritons also live in the Adriatic sea. We have some specimens of around 25 cm. They can grow up to 50 cm.
    Introducing species to change ecosystem is always tricky and can have various effects. Maybe it's the right move to save the Great Barrier Reef. As you said, only time will tell.

    Refreshing and fascinating post-@Ken Boddie. I enjoyed this piece and learned something new as well. These are some scary looking creatures, especially the Giant Triton.

    #1 Fair point, @Ian Weinberg, about the ocean swimming incentives, but with all our deadly land wrigglies, such as 520 species of spiders, giant centipedes, snakes in the world toxic top ten, not to mention other things that can kill you like boxing kangaroos, drop bears and Russel Crowe, you'd think our performance on the track and field would be better.

    I was expecting a Tribble to come to the rescue...

    Another compelling post Sir Ken.

    @Ken Boddie i would suggest that the Giant Triton is immune to the poison and spines because of its dilithium crystal structure, now that this is known the Klingons will be looking to secure these rare structures for their new cloaking device. I would suggest a vulcan mind meld with a few great white sharks to tell them to eat Klingons in the area.

    Great story and the thought of using nature to battle nature sounds great, but like you said it is a dangerous slippery slope. The law of unintended consequences can play heavy that game.
