Donald Trump, Kendall Jenner, the Kardashians, Ryan Seacrest, America’s new self-confident, game show life
By Robin Rowe
HOLLYWOOD, CA (Gosh!TV) 2017/1/10 – We are Generation K. Represented by Kendall Jenner, Keeping Up with the Kardashians and inspired by that TV series’ producer Ryan Seacrest and his philosophy of living life impatient and doing everything. Fading is the age of Thoreau, of living, “a life of quiet desperation.” Hell, Americans are so confident in our future that we elected a loud mouth game show host to run the country. Trump might not succeed, but at least we will get to live our lives big, like reality TV. We’re all Kardashians now.
So, Generation K, how do we live the K life?
A friend mentioned today that it’s natural for a woman to slip into self-doubt and self-loathing. It gets worse… “From that moment she is constantly on an unconscious mission to save herself from people and situations that might trigger her feelings of vulnerability and fear,” says Invisible Goddess author Desiree Marie Leedo.
When someone has a nagging, self-destructive inner voice, it may not stay on the inside. As Leedo notes, it becomes her mission to perpetuate and externalize it. It’s possible this self-sabotaging inner voice is the root cause of all her rejections, that she had previously externalized her already present self-rejection. Expecting rejection, she acts in a way to elicit it.
A remedy for this is to ask yourself, am I talking and acting like a winner? If I was already a millionaire or beauty queen or celebrity or whatever it is my inner voice says I’m lacking, would I say what I’m saying now? Or, would I say something completely different that sounds more confident?
When we act like a winner, it’s much easier to be one. When we are pondering how we can help others, we have less time for worry about ourselves. Many people are living a life of quiet desperation, per Thoreau. Help them. Be a hero. Heroes don’t fret about getting hurt. We can choose to live a heroic life. And, it doesn’t require doing something big. A small act of kindness will do. Inner beauty.
