The sequence begins withrepparttar rich and powerful frequenting a few gentlemenís clubs, unbeknownst torepparttar 132275 spouse at home. It seems innocent enough. But soon,repparttar 132276 excitement ofrepparttar 132277 clubs is not enough and perhaps more money is exchanged for some sensual play. Eventually, that becomes not enough as well. From there we move on to affairs and divorces. The increasing strength and aspirations ofrepparttar 132278 powerful cause him to keep searching forrepparttar 132279 BBD (bigger better deal). However, because there will always be a BBD somewhere, that person will never really be satisfied. This is why it becomes important to understand how fame and fortune affects relationships.

The problem lies with losing sight of who you really are and your values, especially concerningrepparttar 132280 relationships you have with loved ones, because you may have become obsessed with having more and more. It is honorable for people to want to achieve and have high standards. Those high standards are what make this country so fabulous. But come on back down to earth. There is no need to stomp onrepparttar 132281 little people, and a bleach blonde model thirty years younger can only look so good for so long. The relationships you are in now with loved ones arerepparttar 132282 ones that have helped you on your way to great success. Inrepparttar 132283 end, they will be all you will ever need to maintain lifelong happiness.

The Emmaus Journal ~ "What Is Wrong With Being Common?"

Written by C.L. Mareydt

Continued from page 1

Oh so common, I wish I would have known, for verily you displeasedrepparttar pride that lingers in perceptions wise So even now to findrepparttar 132273 common thread in me I have to ask, since I cannot see.

Seemingly forgotten isrepparttar 132274 very realistic fact that when all is said and done, we all are very common. Take awayrepparttar 132275 superficialities and veneers of traditions, heritage, education, careers, finances, talents, social status, beliefs and mores. Take it all away and what is left is just a Human Being. Plain and simple. A Human Being, male, female, young, old. But all in all, just another Human Being. Friend, that's you, that's me! It leaves us, without any schism or reveling. It leaves us, without having to prove anything to each other. It leaves us. You. Me. Perhaps, we can talk? Do you think we could actually communicate? Do you think we could truthfully relate and have a conversation? I dare say, a whole lot more than before. I dare say yes, we could.

Think about this and consider such wonderful options. Is this what being common is? Have I heard it's plea? Have I finally considered it's truth in my own life? Could it be so simple? What is wrong with being common? Nothing! Simply nothing. I believe I will accept it myself. Because I almost missed it. Yes, even in my own life. Yes, it almost was ready to leave me. Oh, I'm so glad I listened one more time. I am common, and I do see what it means now. It is all inrepparttar 132276 mind's eye of perception and understanding. It is all in how I see another Human Being. It is my outlook uponrepparttar 132277 Human Being right beside me and how I perceive myself and them. Together or separate. The human bonds of commonness that intwine each soul. Each of us a common Human Being upon this Earth. No more, no less.
