Signs of Strength?
In western culture we view stubbornness, loudness, and rigidity as signs of strength. Could they instead be signs of fear and weakness? Could it be fear that makes one scream and shout? Could it be that one has to hide behind policy and dogma when one doesn't have the fortitude to make decisions based upon good judgement?
In my personal life I am trying to allow others to be without thinking I must caution them of their wayward ways. Controlling others is surely a sign of insecurity, a loud voice a sign one feels powerless.
We need to question dogma and running buckshot over other people's wishes as acceptable behavior. I certainly have.
