In life, you are only responsible to yourself. If you operate to the highest of your ability with integrity, authenticity, kindness and compassion for those around you, then your work is done. No one can ask more of you. In my experience, if you give all you have to a situation and it is deemed insufficient, chances are it has less to do with you and more to do with the person who is asking it of you. Know what you own and what is NOT yours to own. Learn to look in the mirror and always “keep your side of the street clean.” You will have no regrets and no retribution owed if you follow this simple recipe for success.
This brings me to the painful topic of a very disturbed individual. As much as I hate to support this nonsensical glamorizing of a troubled soul, I need to reference this man and his antics. Yes, we are talking about the plight of Charlie Sheen. It raises a bigger concern in my mind; one of self-identity, virtue and ethics. Clearly this is a troubled being who needs help, but more importantly it is someone operating unconsciously. His lack of ability to look in the mirror has cost him dearly. If you think you can live your life as if no one else matters and continually disrespect those around you, your words and actions will haunt you indefinitely. And here is the kicker, the longer it takes you to learn these simple lessons, the harder the lessons will get for you. When we allow a disturbed mind to take over our lives, we lose perspective with the heart and the heart is the only connection that matters. Charlie Sheen may be “winning” in his mind, but he is certainly losing the battle of self-realization. At the end of the day, everything is relative, but it is only relative to who you are and how you lead your life and until you understand that, you will continue to lose everything.
