The Psychological Knowledge Gained

By Writing “The Psychology of the Seven Deadly Sins”

Writing the blog series which starts October 1, 2020 called “The Psychology of the Seven Deadly Sins” has taught me a lot about myself and about others. In the words of the #weareinthistogehter movement, we truly are. Through the good , the bad, the ugly, and the sinful. Where we are all guilty of Sin, whether engaged in it or turning a blind eye on. To sum it all up, sin comes from a place of desperation. Where we are the most vulnerable psychologically. And in that moment is when we are the most gullible to psychological manipulation.

During this journey I could never understand why people couldn’t take me serious. Why many of them resulted to gaslighting efforts and bandwagon, burins me at the peripheral stake like a witch in Salem. What I realize is that it’s all stemmed from fear as the this is the main thing we all do in the action of sin that comes from internalized early on childhood. Some intentionally made and some unintentional. As let’s provide grace, as there is no is manual for parenting that consist of what happens psychologically when we were raised pre milleninals. Even now as psychology is speculative science that no one has the true answers. In the presents of pride, we can’t even collaborate in peace with idealisms that if you look at it with a open mind, a lot of what the opposing side makes sense. Which fear of failure and fear of shame is what keeps us from having the capability of collaboration in the end. Let’s keep it 100% we don’t know if someone has the intentions of shaming us or joining us. Which knowing one’s self is the key. Where knowing your flaw and all, embracing it as you; it becomes easier in rebuttaling the deflections that come form someone’s own fears and insecurities. Here are some common fears that people have that keeps them from rising:

  1. ear Of Failure
  2. Fear Of Success
  3. Fear Of Being Judged
  4. Fear Of Emotional Pain
  5. Fear Of Embarrassment
  6. Fear Of Being Abandoned Or Being Alone
  7. Fear Of Rejection
  8. Fear Of Expressing Your True Feelings
  9. Fear Of Intimacy
  10. Fear Of The Unknown
  11. Fear Of Loss
  12. Fear Of Death

Which if you are 100% transparent, includes one of more of the the things on this list.

Why Empathizing Is The Key To Inner Peace

Acknowledging that we aren’t perfect and we make mistakes is an empowering feeling. For me, it helped me control the controllable that I kept on blaming others for. As free will is one of the reasons why taking accountability is the reason why it becomes our fault. We feel a sense of desperation in th time of trouble. Where running away from our problems just becomes a emotional crutch of facing fear, it’s only a matter of time that it’s going to come and haunt us again. Which I have done so many times until I faced my fears. The truth is we are told “you have to choose you battles” and “don’t look for trouble” is what we use to talk ourselves out of that feeling we have when we want to fight back. When we get tired of the oppression we face in our everyday life. Where in irrationality comes entitlement. As if your going to fight for the greater good, your fight has to inclusive and selfless. As when it comes to you and being illegally disrespected, the fight is always worth fighting for. In a word where narcissistic behavior is the emotional crutch that we use to protect our feelings, we end up dive deeper into he rabbit hole of sin. Which where we are all sinners, have to get the strength to fight back, being forgiving and empathetic. As we all felt the feeling at one point in time. And in empathy also comes the power of forgiveness.

The Journey Ahead

To my haters, which there is no reason why you should hate when I am giving you the answer to the test. I am not going to stop. I am not going to quick, as consistency has gotten me this far. Which I am way to in this game to back out. The piece of advise I have for you is “Let that bullshit go.” The resentment, the envy, the hatred is only stopping you from reaching your destiny. And when you realize I am on your side, I’ll be there. Where the shame and the belittling is water under the bridge for me, cause it no longer affects me. But I will say knowing both my light and dark side, don’t think a tame tiger ain’t going to attack you in survival of the fittest. Which is why in the blog series I talk about how the human survivor instinct fails us these days as we always underestimate our opponents. As in the act of belittling causes a hornet to sting. And if you’re not careful, you might be shaking the hornets nest. For those who are struggling to find a way out, keep at it and prepare. In the act of breaking from the invisible chains, it has to be in your own time. Work on realizing the valuable person you truly are so you can be confident in yourself. Knowing your true self will eliminate the regret that comes in that doubtful moment that comes. As when you first get empowered it’s normal to be like “What the fuck did I just do?”

If someone says they have the secret or the answers, more than likely it’s just a bandaid that more than likely is just a way to internalize emotions and trauma with a hidden behind it, gluttony which is not making a full effort to change your life. In many of these cases, people boast about the money, the success, the cars, and the fame they claim to get. But all that will go to shit if you can’t depend on yourself. When you can’t depend and advertise your strengths, then all that will be gone when you get voted off the island. Where pride, another sin is what tells us that “It will never happen.” In the end, for us to be able to get to the top, we have to admit all the evils of the world, learn how face them, and learn how to detain. First with our own self, which once we prove that to ourselves, can share that knowledge with the world. In the end, we are all misfits living in a world on fire like Kelly Clarkson says. What she also says is “It’s hard getting high when you’re living on the bottom” which not being part of the 2% of the population, we don’t have a fighting chance. Which what comes to light is that even some of those are scared of the unknown dangers we have no clue about. It’s all speculation in the end. Where if we want to see the change we always have hoped for, it’s time to truly embrace the true meaning of #weareinthistogether. Because at the end of the day, wouldn’t you want to be dancing in the flames of this burning world? Finally free of the invisible chains we all use to hold ourselves in. And quite frankly, this is when America Becomes Great Again. Not just America, but the world.
