Pro-Life and Pro-Choice … One is Not Possible Without the Other

I am pro-life and pro-choice … because one is not possible without the other.

Only when girls and women are respected enough by men and by women and girls themselves to not get pregnant … except by conscious choice of the responsibility are pro-choice and pro-life possible …. which is why sex education and raising individual and societal “Respect Levels” are key to preventing unwanted pregnancies, especially those resulting from naivety, incest, and sexual assault.

Writing, Publishing, Podcasting, Film-Making, and Directing Preparation

In preparation for rolling out the “Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle” global initiative to transform respect from a discretionary value to a global principle, the above headline outlines a significant part of the work ahead of me.

Upcoming changes also include a WordPress email account, fees to read select blog entries, plus the means to accept funds for fundraising too.

And down the road, the time will come to bring on the management team with their unique talents and expertise to advocate, inspire, and manifest more peace and liberty for all people.

Fortunately, I am blessed with a strong drive to learn and focus, plus an usuual right/left brain aptitude that empowers me to be both creative and intuitive, plus logical and practical, and of course, with the most important factor … the drive to help all people experience the reality of being valued … respected simply for being a human life.

Thank you for following, for caring, and for sharing. Please stay tuned and be safe.

Wholeheartedly,

“The Emotional Intelligence Test Was So Accurate It Was Creepy”

Linked article by Rich Bellis for Fast Company on Pocket Worthy

In a world dominated by narcissism … in other words, the it’s-all-about-me mindset … and a sociopathic mindset … in other words, I-am-concerned-with-me-not-you-mindset … it is easy to understand why “Emotional Intelligence” is underdeveloped or impaired in many people in our world today.

I say many because if we look at the impact highlighted by the actual statistics based on crimes … child neglect, child sexual abuse, sexual assaults, domestic violence, human trafficking, racial, religion, and because-you-are-different attacks, plus blue and white collar crime (statistics revealing the ones that we know of, not the many we don’t), we find the proven evidence for low Emotional Intelligence that is an indicator of sociopathic narcissism and therefore of low “Respect Levels.”

As someone with an very unusual personality type who suffered greatly at the hands of people with low EI and in turn, sometimes gave back some of which I received, I personally know what having a low EI feels and looks like. Wanting to break negative patterns in me to generate different results, has meant, like it does with all change, looking at myself and then searching for the knowledge I needed to become aware of so I could see, not where I was bad or deficient, but where I was ignorant of what I needed to know to become, by my behaviour as well as my thoughts, the person I knew I initially was … very caring and concerned for others as well as for myself.

With a “Respect Level” finally above the 50% mark, I am grateful for the significant changes that has restored much of my true character before the world did a number on it. And I have to admit, I still have work to do to ramp up my EI to a level I will be satisfied with, which for me as an Intuitspecifically means reigning in my “Impulse Control.” So, the personal works goes on as does the professional work of helping others on their journeys by sharing what others and I have learned from our journeys.

Looking Behind the Narcissist’s Curtain

Much like the OZ wizard character in “The Wizard of Oz” movie, narcissists may appear more confident, capable, and powerful than what they really are.

“Overview. Narcissistic personality disorder — one of several types of personality disorders — is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others.Nov 18, 2017”

To Respect Simply Means To Value

English words often have more than one meaning, which can even include contrary meanings, but when I researched the word “respect”, all definitions included the words “to value.” Since I was searching for a word, a concept that would cross all boundaries and reflect the belief every person is valuable simply for being a life, respect became a philosophy, has been adopted as principle, and now drives the global initiative because …

“People With Creative Personalities Really Do See the World Differently”

“As Scott Barry Kaufman and Carolyn Gregoire explain in their book Wired to Create, the creativity of open people stems from a “drive for cognitive exploration of one’s inner and outer worlds”.

“This curiosity to examine things from all angles may lead people high in openness to see more than the average person, or as another research team put it, to discover “complex possibilities laying dormant in so-called ‘familiar’ environments”.
