Where’s your backbone?

Too many times have I seen men trampled (figuratively) on because of a condition that seems to be spreading across the globe.

I’m speaking of course about Sin-Vertebratum Extremium, the total absence of pride and self-respect in a man, causing him to appear as a “wet-noodle,” “push-over,” “a tool.”

Gentlemen, if time would slow down I’d establish a committee to find the cause of this horrible condition, but until then I’ll continue to do what I’ve been doing and try and help you realize this stuff on a case-by-case basis.

First: Realize that even the smallest and weakest man is still one of God’s creatures, created in his likeness. If you’re made by God, don’t you think he’d want you to be a bit proud of this and act like you’re of importance and your opinions and ideas are important and influential? Would He let his co-workers dismiss his ideas because He’s just a paper-pusher? NO, He’d “man-up” and stand His ground, making his point known and fighting for what He believes is right.

In Early American history when two men had a disagreement things would often escalate to the point where someone had to die. These men were so sure that they were right that they’d put their life on the line. I’m not advocating killing someone who disagrees with you, but as times change, so do the tactics we use to achieve our respective goals.

Second: You will never get the respect you feel you deserve without proving your value. Sometimes it takes removing yourself from a situation to show people how much they relied on you. There’s a point where having backbone and standing up for yourself will suck, that’s just the way the world works. Trust in God to help you and show HIM that you’re a badass too.

Back on topic…

Well… not exactly on topic:

This Steve McQueen film illustrates a man of little importance doing great things and standing up for himself despite position.

The Sand Pebbles (1966)

I’m tired and have legit work to do. Good luck men.
