This reflection comes from something TV Judge, Judy Sheindlin says very often on her show, and it’s true. If something somebody tells you makes no logical sense, it’s most likely to be bullshit.
Recently, many things have been told/explained/fed to me that don’t make no sense at all. Am I stupid? Paranoid maybe? Or is my life just one senseless lie?

I came up with this quote after seeing some ruthless actions from the family and friends of a dear person I once knew.
A relationship broken down. The woman has given it her all but isn’t getting much of a response from her man. Does she fight for love or should she walk away from it? What is she supposed to do?
You know how I feel for you
So why d’ya keep trying to make me prove
What’s perfectly clear
Pushing me away, double siding me
Is only gonna make me disappear
There’s only so much I can take
Damn it! I got feelings too
Wanna share my dreams with you
But you’re making it so hard for me
So hard for me
So what am I supposed to do?
It’s fair to say, I’ve gotta share the blame
Trying to steer you from the reality and pain
Tried to paint a perfect picture fantasy
Even though we were suffering in the misery
But please, you must always remember
Right or wrong I’ve always been there for ya
From January through to December
Stood there strong by your side
Trying to guide you through life
Now you’re pushing me, fighting me
Double siding me
After all that we’ve been through
Be honest with yourself
You know I’d never do that to you
So tell me what am I supposed to do?
I don’t wanna see you in misery
I don’t wanna see you in pain
But if it means a replay of all the hell we’ve been through
Then I don’t wanna see you again
You see trust means a lot to me
And you’ve broken mine too many times
Then you say you realise
And tell me you wanna give our relationship another try
But how do I know that you’re not just spinning another lie
I have feelings for you and always will do
But when you’re fighting me, double siding me. Tell me
What am I supposed to do?

This quote from 3rd Ear Girl reflects keeping your opinions to yourself.
Sometimes giving an honest opinion when asked or passing a comment in a discussion can cause BIG problems, especially if you’re quite ‘real’, like myself. To avoid repercussions, or a smack in the mouth, I often just nod and shake my head when required 😉
Unfortunately, whatever our walks in life, we all have to deal with haters. Some of us are lucky enough to just brush the negativity shown by haters away, whilst others suffer a miserable silence. My advice… Never give haters the satisfaction of knowing they’re getting to you. QUOTE FOR THE HATERZ
This little lush poem is about a woman finding her true love partner and devoured in the power of sexiness. 3rd Ear Girl is still looking for ‘The One’, but it doesn’t stop her writing about him.
Lost is a poem reflecting the inner emotions of depression. I originally published this in 2006 and decided to bring it out of the vault to share at a time when so many people are going through dark times. Believe me, I understand.
Each day I wake up thinking to myself
Can I make it through another day of hell?
Don’t wanna get out of bed
But I’ve gotta shake these voices in my head
They’ve got me wishing I was dead
Or someplace else instead
Of this life of fighting a losing battle
Can’t get on my saddle and take control
Feels like I’m losing my soul
My dreams, my self-respect, my ambitions
All replaced with fear
Waiting in vain for a better tomorrow
But damn! There goes another year
And I’m still here, in the same shit
The same sorry-assed merry-go-round
The cold reality in this lonely world

I wasn’t born hearing impaired, so I often spend a quality of time wallowing over the hearing I’ve lost. At other times, when I’m struggling to lip-read someone’s idle chit-chat, mindless gossip or senseless self-appreciation, I can understand why God took my hearing away.
People say that a bit of competition is healthy… When competition is driven by jealousy, pride and being “top dog”, where’s the health benefits in that mixture?
I come across a lot of people that are constantly in competition with each other… Who’s got the better car, the most stylish house, bigger TV, goes on the most exotic holidays, earns more, looks better, dresses better… fucks better. I fail to see what there is to gain from this domesticated competitiveness. What’s the goal of getting yourself into debt because you don’t just want to “keep up with the Jones’”, you want to blow them out of the water? Where does the cycle stop when people are teaching their kids that their worth in life is being “better” than the next kid?
I don’t have that aggression for competition. Maybe that’s why I haven’t succeeded in my life but to me, its a rat race. I don’t judge people because they wear clothes from Primark or Prada and I don’t expect them to judge me. My aims, goals, choices, etc, are my own, not duplicated. I don’t want to be a copy of Suzy down the road. I want to be a better person than the person I was last year, achieve more than I have. My only competition is myself because I have to grow with myself, live with myself and look myself in the eye everyday in the mirror and know that I am being true to me.
