No pride in self/work

We all have those co-workers who come to work just for a pay check. The people who do just enough to get by and keep their job. Have you ever thought what causes a person to be that way? If not, then you’re probably that person.

I had a sign on my bedroom door as a child, courtesy of my mom, that stated: “It’s never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over.”

That sign was part of the fundamentals instilled in me that you have to be careful and precise when doing things (although The Mrs. may think otherwise of me). Everyone doesn’t believe that. Some people find excuses to not be the best they can be.

Maintaining leverage in the relationships

It’s amazing the amount of manipulation that goes on with grown people. No wonder the urban slang “having game” means “knowing how to handle the opposite sex”. Because to some, a “game” is all that it is.

We all know that some women may withhold sex from their man as a way to get what they want. Men will string women along just to give them hope that a dead-end relationship will some how flourish.

Some people in relationships try to have an edge on their significant other. Either one or both feels as if they have to have an advantage on the other. That’s what’s wrong with most relationships. We want to be the person holding all of the cards. We try to buy our partners. We try to (sexually) whip our partners. We even have children to try and trap our partners which actually leads to my next item…

No concept of parenting

A lot of the problems stem from split households. People don’t see the importance of marriage these days and as a result, the kids are being raised with one parent while the other just has visitation (if they come around at all). One parent actually plays the role of a parent while the other tends to play the role of the best friend. This doesn’t work at all. If parents aren’t a united front, then kids will manipulate them like a pimp does a ho. If you can’t get along and be on the same page as the person you laid down and had a baby with, then you need a hug. In order to restore parenting to where it once was, we need to restore marriage to where it once was. There’s a difference between a “wife/husband” and a “wifey/hubby:” one raises children and the other has children.

Yeah, I said it. What?

– You give a lackluster effort on your job yet feel the need to curse out someone at McDonald’s for forgetting your fries.

– You lie to someone saying that you love them because you don’t want them to leave you before you’re ready to truly commit.

– You tell your son he’s now “The Man of the House” because you’ve failed to find someone to truly fit the position.

It’s time to stop being an adult in size only.
