“They blame those who remain silent, they blame those who speak much, they blame those who speak in moderation. There is none in the world who is not blamed.”
This Buddha quote reminds me of an Aristotle quote:
“There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.”
We live in a hyper critical world of insecure projections.
^This makes it hard for any of us to live.
Because when we go against the grain – when we don’t conform to how they say we should live – we get criticized & blamed.
The crabs in the bucket try to pull us back down into the bucket with them – for whatever reason – mostly fear.
But we weren’t meant to live in that bucket.
We we meant to live free.
We Are meant to live free.
So let’s do a little less blaming, and a little more living.
