Ask Dr. Jeanette Success On “The Way”: ‘I Voted For TRU-X-X?!’

The interim election is past. Some people are happy. I decided to vote for Tru-X-X: [TRUTH].  We see adults walking around doing well; respectable careers, Daily work habits; that doesn’t mean all is well with that person. “He/she was so nice. Are you sure it was that person? I have known him/her for years… lives right next door. I speak to him every morning! He/she is quiet; never bothers anybody.” 

All statements are after thoughts of reflection when we hear that person is accused of some bad news. Good news is not readily broadcast.  You’re more likely to hear bad news than good. Wake up! Become more aware, informed and well versed. Parents can teach children about government; what has the elected official done or supposed to be doing? How well has the official performed in office. Sometimes you must go through trials before blessings. Think intelligently before spending your vote next time. Ask questions about the officials’ accomplishments while in office; research to learn the principles of the political party..what they stand for? Do I want a failed society where the government overarches everything and develop a “sense of entitlement?”

Paying back all the student loans is good if the students can find jobs.  Students may be given a very long period of time to repay. There is another side to it. Some students receive grants towards their tuition or pay less based on family income. That’s good.  Others must pay back thousands and thousands of dollars and may not have a job to pay backBuild up college funds. The government can’t pay for everything. When that happens, money/taxes have to be collected from somewhere to pay all these expenses. Let’s “shift” our thinking. [my view].

Examine situations. Think critically from different perspectives. Consider another avenue. If it didn’t work don’t go round and round…Helloooo Your actions teach others around youIf we want to improve our lives or we believe things could be better or should be better, change the conversation. Turn right! Stop following the crowds! Elevate your thinking! Once parents, husbands, wives, children discover there is something cooking in the brain, it’s time to do something. Persevere! Don’t give up! Review your life’s agenda. Pray. Seek divine guidance and blessings. Posture yourself to receive gifts and blessings; may seem insurmountablewait! It’s not! Sometimes, one’s first thought is “stop the behavior!” But, may not know how to do it. Perhaps, the only way to tackle the problems is understanding that person. How does that happen? Getting to know others is not always through words. Watch! ObserveI love people, parents. They come in all different sizes, shapes, careers, home life, skin color, backgrounds and cultures.
