THE HECK WITH CRITICS

“If you have no critics you’ll likely have no success.”
-Malcolm X

What or who are critics? People who assess your work and critique it is usually the more common conception. And while that may be true, we often forget one basic definition: criticism is just an opinion.

Now I’ve written about this subject before. But when I wrote about it previously, I wrote about it from the point of view as a writer.

SUICIDE & STAYING SAFE

“If you were born, you have a purpose. If you lived to be a certain age, you have a purpose. If you’re a human being, you have a purpose. Don’t kill the quest of finding out that purpose prematurely.”
-Unknown

Amidst everything going one, I’ll going to take the liberty of keeping this post shorter than usual.

There is one difference between this post and my other posts. I have not one but two messages of advice for readers.

I SEE YOU

“When you think you’re not happy with your life, always think that someone is happy that you exist.”
-Quotesgram.com

Whether it’s COVID-19 or something else or both, everywhere I look someone somewhere is scared, angry, depressed with a mountain of stress on their shoulders. And that’s okay because we’re all human beings.

Amid all those emotions though, just remember that someone always loves you and cares about you. At times it may feel like you have nobody, (I go through that feeling very often due to depression) but there’s ALWAYS somebody out there. Somebody is happy you exist, like today’s quote says. Somebody cares about your happiness. Somebody is concerned if you’re down on your luck.

With that in mind, I’d like to do something I’ve done once before with this section. I invite all readers of this post to post how they’re feeling, due to whatever’s going on in their lives in the secure comments section below.

As I’ve always said, the first step you can take when you’re having issues is to speak up. And I’m inviting people to do just that. You can talk about your mood. If you’re comfortable with it, you can even go into details about why you’re feeling the way you are. If not, just put in one word like “happy,” “sad,” “angry,” etc.

Basically, I’m saying that I see you and would like to hear you as well no matter how you’re feeling.

SELF-HARM & CUTTING – REVISED

“‘See no scars.’ But it’s all lies. They only check wrists…not thighs.”
-Unknown

Today happens to be a very special day for me. Not because it’s St. Patrick’s Day although admittedly, its modern day traditions of wearing green, parades, etc do indeed hold a fascination for me.

But as most of the world celebrates the inclusion of Christianity in Ireland (and perhaps pinch a friend or two in jest who is not wearing green) I’m celebrating something else: It’s been one whole year since I last cut myself.

MAJOR 2-PART POST ABOUT FEMINISM COMING

“Life is not a competition between men and women. It is a collaboration.”
-David Alejandro Fearnhead

Hello dear readers,
Thank you as always for taking your valuable time to read my posts. I do not have an official post today as there will be a two-part post coming tomorrow and Thursday. The post is about feminism and what its exact definition is and how it is very often misconstrued.

This particular article needs to be written with caution as in this day and age, different people have different views about not only our political scenario, but particularly, when it comes to women and their rights.

As I scroll through social media, it makes me sad when people resort to hate and negativity to get their point across. In response, I hope to make this article a positive piece, even when quoting people who might disagree with the article or others quoted in it.

I look forward to sharing it with you and I hope you look forward to reading it. In the meantime, please check out other sections of this site. If you’re into music, check out the DWW Music Prompt page.

If you’re into poetry, check out our Picture Poetry and Wise Poets page. Also check out our current poetry contest.

If you’re into dissecting particular words or philosophies, check out the Daily Wisdom Words’ theme page.

Also, if you enjoy any or all of these pages, please feel free to leave us some feedback in the comments section as it helps a lot. We, the team at DWW, care a lot about what you, the reader thinks and would love comments or even suggestions as to how we could enhance this site even more to make it an optimal platform for lovers of the #WritingCommunity.

Thank you again,

SMILING – THE EXPOSÉ

“Smiling does not necessarily mean you’re happy. Sometimes it just means you’re strong.”
-Nishan Panwar

In the past, I’ve written a post or two about the power of a smile. I talked about how it could make someone’s day and the psychological effects it can have on you even when you’re not really happy.

Although that post is quite old now, I recently received a message from a new reader who didn’t agree. Their argument was that why should they fake an emotion? Isn’t the norm today to encourage people to speak up if something’s wrong?
