We can all agree releasing negative emotions in a positive manner is likely to create a better outcome then burying these emotions deep within ourselves. First, however, we must identify these negative emotions.
I would like to create ONE for you whether or not you feel you have enough of your own. I’ll call it:
The following picture sarcatically portrays the reality of the food manufacturing industry.
Big Business focuses primarily on ONE goal, PROFIT. Personally, I support the concept of SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS. I do not, however, support the notion that businesses should succeed (financially) at the welfare of the consumer purchasing their products or services. Knowingly producing a product that directly or indirectly causes UNNECESSARY harm to the public should NEVER be considered an acceptable practice.
But, Jim has a good point. The public isn’t complaining. In fact, they’re supporting these industries and the profits these businesses generate. Although Jim and Bill are two fictional characters lacking human concern and compassion, the ANGER we SHOULD experience and voice toward their industry and other big industries must be curtailed as we accept our role and responsibility in contributing to their ongoing GROWTH and EXPANSION.
On 9/11/2001 we lost nearly 3000 lives to an event designed to take the lives of innocent people? We called this event a TRAGEDY. Every day we lose over 6000 lives yet we call this a NATURAL loss of life EVENT. There is nothing NATURAL about destroying the quality of one’s life by becoming addicted to dangerous food substances known to reduce life expectancy. You are NOT a PERSON to these industries; you are a DOLLAR SIGN. Without cash or credit card YOU are NOT WELCOMED. In fact, no one cares if your face is present or not at these establishments. They will gladly provide their products to a friend, family member and even a stranger willing to buy it for you. Heck, they don’t even care if you eat, drink or swallow their products once you purchase them.
AM I BEGINNING TO SEE A LITTLE ANGER?
Like the pharmaceutical companies that insult the medical industry with hundreds of ads EVERY DAY reminding YOU to ask your doctor if their products are needed (because your doctor might not be competent enough to know or remember without your assistance,) the fast food industry uses a similar strategy with countless adds on TV, magazines and weekly circulars. Here was yesterday’s contribution.
FAST FOOD AND PHARMACEUTICAL IN ONE CONVENIENT WEEKLY CIRCULAR
Here we have this week’s “value packed savings” on typical consumer eating and discounted “savings” on prescription “SOLUTIONS.” These foods seem so inexpensive, but when you factor in the costs including obesity, diabetes, stroke, cardiovascular disease and cancer and then add in depression, lost days at work, hospital stays, marriage stress, food addiction, etc… it really doesn’t seem so inexpensive, does it?
MAYBE A LITTLE MORE ANGER BUILDING?
Now that your essence has been reduced to a purse or wallet, maybe its time to face the mirror and determine if your VALUE to this world exceeds the number of credit cards you possess or the cash you carry.
Let your ANGER be a force you release in a manner than benefits not only yourself, but those around you as well. Learn POSITIVE defiance by SLOWLY modifying your OLD DESTRUCTIVE HABITS. Don’t continue to treat yourself with the same DISRESPECT the BIG INDUSTRIES do. Let your ANGER morph into an APPRECIATION for life and the unlimited potential it offers. Do you really want to continue to line the pockets of Jim and Bill so they can enjoy the amenities in life while you are added to the statistical disease charts? Can you hear them laughing?
Now you have REASON and INCENTIVE to change. Enjoy the PROCESS as you REAP THE BENEFITS.
