Last week I had an "issue" to help my daughter resolve at school. Basically, in a nutshell, she's being bullied by some trailer-park-trash looking little brat that reminds me of younger version of Eddie Haskell of Leave It To Beaver. For you young people who have no clue as to what I'm talking about, Eddie Haskell was charming as hell to the adults but was a bastard to everyone else (i.e. the kids of the neighborhood). This little sh** evenlooks like Eddie Haskell a little bit.
So, last Monday he punched my daughter in the cheek at lunch/recess. I noticed the quarter-sized bruise on her left cheek. By Tuesday and Wednesday my daughter didn't want to be left at school, even throwing a full-blown crying meltdown in the lobby of the school when I had to leave. This is when I knew something was wrong.
After much cajoling last Thursday after school, she finally admitted that there was a little punk ass kid at school by the name of Jake who was bullying her. Within seconds I was on the phone with her teacher, nicely demanding a rapid resolution to the problem.
This is when I decided that, once the appropriate "authorities" were notified, that it was time for a little "rough justice." I explained to her that the next time the piece of sh** smacks, punches, or touches her in any way she is to break his freaking nose until there's blood gushing everywhere. The more blood, the better.
She looked at me confused. Here we are with an innocent sweet little girl who doesn't understand why I'm condoning such severe violence on a little boy her age.
"Because sometimes you just have to come out fighting when you've done everything else you could possibly do otherwise," I told her.
Then I thought about it. How many of us act like "victims" to life in general? But forget about being a victim. How many of us sit around thinking that God or somebody should have helped us or opened a path somehow...and didn't. So we mope around because we're not getting our "fair share" in life.
Damn right you're not getting your fair share. I can tell you that you're 100% correct. You're getting screwed!
But here's how you stop getting screwed over by life in general. Here's the point when you can stop accepting the crumbs and scraps that are left over by everyone else and start getting the lion's share of what you deserve in life.
1) You don't accept your conditions as they are.
2) You come out swinging for what you want; fight hard for it.
3) If you break a few noses in the process, that's how the ball bounces.
Unfortunately the "programming" of the sheep-like hum-drum life they're trying to pump and dump into our little ones these days was starting to seep into my daughter's innocent little head because she was afraid she'd get in trouble by breaking Eddie Haskell -- I mean Jake's face open on the playground.
I told her straight up. "Yep, you'll probably get in trouble with the teacher and with the principle but you won't be in trouble with me and that's all that matters. If they make you sit in the principle's office, don't be scared. I'm backing you up 100%, baby. The only time I'll be mad is if that little loser touches you again and you stand there without defending yourself. That's when you'll get in trouble with me!"
This is when I realized that the moment you feel life pinning you down into a somewhat helpless state of being, you have to come out punching like a mother****** until you get what you want. Period. No way around it. There is no rolled out red carpet for people who accept their station on the sidelines. You either take the center spotlight or you die the wallflower, unnoticed and disrespected.
How do you start fighting for freedom? You take the bull by the horns and decide to start doing something for yourself. Maybe you're finally at the point where you can't take it anymore. Good! It's about freaking time!! It's a great point to be at because this is when it's easier for you to start initiating change for once.
I have something I think you should take a look at including some testimony of people just like you who decided that they were going to make some significant changes in their lives. And they have a personal message for you. Click here
to listen to what they have to say to you.
In the meantime, stop being a doormat for everyone. In fact, pick up that mat and fling it in the trash. It's your turn to start getting what you want and it first begins by telling everyone else to f*** off. Then, after that, start fighting for the life you want.
What the hell are you waiting for?
See you at the top!
