Was I really lied too..?

In my previous post ” I’ve been lied too..” I stated a few things that I feel were said to me that weren’t absolutely accurate. But today morning as I woke up, I saw a comment on my post that said ” Not lies, but hopes and dreams” . That right there struck a chord and you know I wasn’t lied to per se.

To not sound like it was a plot against me to be lied too or something crazy like that, a little rephrasing is in order. We as a society are hard-wired a certain way, be it culture, religion, tradition etc and I don’t blame anyone in particular for the incorrect information that I’ve been told but I am annoyed.

We are told to do things a certain way because it’ll align with life and it will resonate with how the world is ( or their world ), which isn’t the best place in the planet now ( they’re saying mars is looking brighter now, especially after the discovery of water. I assume we’ll be able to have water fasting retreats in mars real soon ). So, what I do have a bit of an issue with is the updates of mindsets over the years. Times are changing and we HAVE to be changing with it, or else we will  progress as fast.

For those who still think you need to go to university or study a certain field because it’s the trend now, or those think that we either marry from a certain tribe/family members or else we’re bad people or those who think doing things a certain way that they or they’re ancestors did ( like the paleo diet, what is up with that backward diet mentality? )  please re-think you’re options and acknowledge that there are now better alternatives that are more practical, more aligned with the world today and will get us further in life.

And let me make clear that I’m not talking about values that we have to drop to be aligned with the world. The one thing that’s going down hill from here year after year and decade after decade are ethics, values and morals. So that maybe the only one thing that we should stick too and that I believe will always make us shine in any era. Respect is the same as it was in the1920’s, that hasn’t changed . It’s just the way of doing things that have, and that there are better ways of doing them.

We are all told these things in the hope that we’ll be better people and that we’ll shine as our ancestors once did. But the world is moving faster than ever and we  either adapt or perish.

The one thing I’m not taking back is main steam media. Yes, they have a hidden agenda and yes its a very old plot that has been there for ages to get us all thinking a certain way that’ll benefit the rich and powerful while keeping masses just informed enough to go through life as a machine. Beware of the media and what it portrays. Do not buy what they tell us we need, I just need the new iPhone because I have to stay updated and provide you guys with better content faster, right? 🙂

I’ve been lied too…

I was told I had to get good grades in high school to get into a good university. FALSE! I was gonna go into a poor university in both cases, cause for 1 ) I wasn’t trusted by my parents so I wasn’t really gonna go anywhere and 2) most of the people I know that got poor-average grades and ended up going to universities abroad, so it didn’t really matter how their grades were as long as they passed high school, ok maybe not Harvard but you know what I mean. Point being, you don’t need good graded to get into a decent university, just $$$$$. I bet you didn’t know.So, looking at it that way, super glad I didn’t study that hard ( I was mainly grounded but still didn’t study, until now its a mystery why but I’ll get to bottom of it )

I was also told that I needed to choose a career, that’s the biggest joke in 2015. If you want a dead-end boring office job then yes you need a career. If you want to be  stuck doing the same boring thing for the rest of your life then yes, get a career.Don’t get me wrong, I respect who have careers and are actually HAPPY. Don’t know too many though. Read my post on what I wanna be when I grow up 

I was told that it would be best to marry someone from the same culture by friends, family and of course the culture. What is my culture anyways? I mean seriously, who am I?. Instead I married someone completely out of my circle, and boy did I get lucky. My wife is one of major things in my life that I’m grateful for ( not sure she feels the same way ) but I cannot imagine my life without her. Never in a million years would I have even imagined marrying someone from such a distant culture. Marry who you fall in love with but before love make sure that you both completely accept each other and have a mutual understanding or else love isn’t enough. Love comes after that or maybe even later. It’s the brains, the understanding of one another and then maybe love.

So many told me that I’ll never be taken seriously if I had long hair in this culture. I’ve never been taken more serious before in my life. People actually look up to me. Even I find it shocking. It’s maybe because I look more foreign I don’t know. But I like it and I’m keeping it till I think of something else I can do with my hair. Any suggestions?  ( I do get a few dirty looks from time to time, but I think I always got those )

They told me that dairy is good for me? I’ll grow strong bones and be some sort of Hercules. Ha ha ha!! Dairy products in 2015 is one of the most unhealthiest foods you could consume. Don’t take my word for it, check out Alia al Moayed’s article, oh and she’s a certified nutritionist.

They said protein will help me recover faster, build muscle and it’s just good for you. So please, just have some ok!!!  I stopped eating meat and chicken, and never have I felt stronger, had more energy and I have better mental clarity. Still working on my ADD though.

Watch the news to stay updated with latest about the news and to know the truth about the world they said. Pfft, mainstream media is all of big web of lies with a hidden agenda to corrupt and just keeps you dumb. If I wanna be entertained I listen to the BBC cause I get an absolute kick out of it. Love it, in fact that’s my favorite news broadcast.

Have you been lied to as well..?

Do you need animal products to survive? Do you need to be a doctor to live a comfortable life and so society can be proud of you or so that you can be a trophy to family members? Do you still read the news and go like “aha, that’s so true” or do you have to marry your cousin or else you’re an outcast?

What kind of lies were you told…?
