Do you Know About “TALL POPPY SYNDROME?” Are You a Tall Poppy or …?

Discovered, the “Tall Poppy Syndrome” is the major reason my social business venture with its original intellectual capital and global initiative is no longer searching for support within Canadian borders, but is going international.

On another note, I also understand, for those who don’t feel good about themselves and their life, putting others down may briefly feel good, but it is a short fix that will have to be repeated over and over again … unless a person redirects one’s time and energy to rise up and take one’s place with the other tall poppies 😉

Thankfully we all are different and have our unique lives to lead, so let us not cut someone down or criticize. It isn’t necessary, helpful, or productive. The best thing we can do instead is to be brave, bold, and strong and become the best version of ourselves … because that is how we live our best life, which enables us to also help make the lives of others better too.

What a Different World and Different Race WE HAVE the POWER to Become

This Filmmaker, Deeyah Khan, Spent Months Interviewing neo-Nazis and Jihadists. Here’s What She Learned

Part of the reason people subscribe to these movements is that they feel shunned in their lives, in their personal lives or in wider society. These movements are deeply rooted in a sense of victimhood, real or imagined. So if we exclude them, if we shout at them, if we condemn them, that completely feeds into that. And then the monster gets bigger, not smaller.

I tried to understand the core psychological draw of these movements. I found that a sense of belonging or purpose was a major factor. These people join these groups and suddenly they have a sense of meaning in life, a belief that they matter, that their voice matters. It’s as though they were once invisible and now they’re seen.

Most of these men get so much attention once they do something horrible, or once they say something horrible. Before that, they’re invisible. And I think there is something really powerful in that, and perhaps that says more about us as a society than it does about them. But it ought to give us pause when we shower extremist groups with constant media attention.

The more somebody is shunned and pushed away from the country they live in, the more you are actually pushing them into the arms of extremists, of people who wish these kids, and the rest of us, harm.

It matters when you are able to extend it to somebody who might not deserve it, or who you might not like or might not agree with. Otherwise, we become just like them — and, in the process, do their bidding.

On a personal note, being made fun of, rejected, harmed, shunned and eventually made to feel invisible because of experienced traumas and how they affected my personality type ignited, stoked, and maintained a deep-seated rage against humanity for many years of my life.

Yet my deep-seated care about people, especially the rejected, the oppressed, and the discarded, like me, also fuelled the desire to find a viable solution to help break this debilitating-to-all insanity.

Eventually my passion to manifest positive change overrode and dis-empowered the harmful rage and turned into a powerful tool dedicated to transforming respect from something only some people are given for a reason or reasons selected by a person or group of people to a global principle because it is the only way to peace … and respect is the only way back into love.

This I know as truth from experience and as a result, want to share so all others will one day truly know they by their own experience they are valuable … simply for being a life.

What a different world and different race we have the power to become … together.
