In the light of this week’s shooting at the Holocaust Museum, Jim makes a perceptive observation.
The article says this about the 88-year-old white supremacist: “When his ex-wife met him in the mid-1960s, he was a wine swiller consumed by hatred.” Please note, that when she met him, he was already in possession of these illustrious qualities.
Jim points out:
“He was a ‘wine swiller consumed by hatred (and) would get angry and abusive’ whenever he was questioned about it. And still he was able to attract a woman 20 years younger than him… Ladies, it’s girls like her (and the one’s that marry the Menendez brothers and Scott Petersons of the world) that are holding you back. You need to do something about them.”
When you meet an alcoholic, raging and abusive hater, (can any of these qualities be on a woman’s list?) it’s not an opportunity to get out your toolbox and “Fix-it-Yourself Manual” (however much we believe “fixing” others is a distinctly female gift). It’s a chance to practice your freedom of “choice” to focus on a man who embodies respect, thoughtfulness, and kindness.
That way, we can focus our Fixing Gift on changing the world.
