In this case I am searching for better solutions to reoccurrences’ that should never even arise. As being’s many believe that we are capable of hand-picking our destiny.. on the contrary.. Circumstances tend to provide the outline. Perspective of upper-class versus lower-middle class families doesn’t even coincide.
Growing up I guess we were considered between lower-middle class and working class. In reference to the class pyramid, we were nowhere near being rich but our parents did their absolute best to make sure we had everything a kid could ever need or want coming up in Richmond, Virginia. Elements definitely get tough as time passes (pyramid shifted), but you do what you gotta do to survive! — Sadly enough that is the attitude which is developed over hardships some decide to stick it out — and others become piranha.
The piranha’s cognitive is to go out and get it by any means. Providing for your family is the goal. Results for the “go out and get it” mentality aren’t always positive. With that said I take a look at one’s circumstances i.e existing conditions. If your community had efficient grocery stores which in return provided jobs, actual nutritional foods, Gas stations that doesn’t charge an arm and leg for fuel that only sells shit that exploit’s your community! In addition to having rubble that use to be extravagant places of businesses that recycled money within the community making it idiotic for one to even have the thought of disrupting that cycle. In the next pond you have a school of fish that see’s the transition’s, wanting to make THE change. Eager to be the difference, but somehow gets knocked off the righteous path following into the ‘piranha’s’ trap.
In this sea you have all types of ‘fish’ swimming just trying to get through. For many the stream less traveled seems bleak and blue, contingent upon circumstance.
I Chose to be in the school of fish that wanted freshwater. I only wish others do too.

This post speaks to me so distinctly. I myself always aim to be different. I see that transition,and I want to make a change in the world. In our society. But I guess the norm is to streamline your goal into yourself. Into making the most money, having recognition, or having power. It’s easy to get knocked off this path by that image of who you could be. what you could have. But I’ve actively decided that this isn’t about me. And that’s why I’ve chosen to be like the fish that want freshwater. I’m glad you do too.
