When you are knowingly in the wrong, own it. There is nothing you can do to make things right, by harping on the negatives, best you can do is be positive. There are no defenses to idiocracy or stupidity, you just have to represent yourself, well enough to keep up with the pace of life. No one can help you but yourself. Accept no blames for the illnesses of others, as they are a product of their own minds, not yours. You are always responsible for yourself first and foremost, you are never responsible for the wrongs of others. As directed means as directed means as directed. No one on medication should drink alcohol for those reasons, as directed not to. Always consult with your Doctor or Pharmacist should you take medications, in which the combination of alcohol, impairs any of your abilities, why I don’t drink, sober since 2003. Im knowingly retarded, Ive had a learning disability since I was little, learned multiplication tables by tracing my hands, numbers on the tips, and got zeros on my ERBs in Kindergarten, there is no news flash for those struggling with learning disabilities, you just need to be kind to all. How I was able to achieve in life, its through hard work, and effort, and with a strong faith in myself and others, as well as those around me, trusting their decision making skills, never paranoid. In order to be well, enough to hang out with the best of them, you have to do well in life, that means following rules of order, and doing your best to be apart of, not fall astray. There are no confessions to the wrongs made by others, only defenses. You cannot blame people for the wrongs of others, that is clearly wrong, you cannot blame innocent bystanders, you cannot blame people period when bad things occur, that is not the responsibility of people to be blamed, accept blame, place blame, or worry others to death via blame. You should always take responsibility for yourself in life, you are NEVER responsible for others in life, just yourself. When you represent yourself well, you represent all others well, that is the point of image. Image is when of and concerning you, you represent yourself best. Nothing that I have written has been learned in Law School, it is for and by my experiences I know best, and respond well, to circumstances, always see clearly. When you do right in the World, you will foster self, and others, when you do not do well in life, you cannot represent the best interests of others well, that’s plain and simple.
