Every encounter in our lives (especially the unpleasant ones) adds knowledge to self.

You can dress a tout in a three piece suit, but you can’t scrap-off the mannerisms.  If you ever got annoyed by one you can see it coming at you from across the street while others will engage and buy the snake oil.

Should we fight battles we know we cannot win for the sake of learning from the experience?

A battle is an irreplaceable source of knowledge.  I believe that the best way to know someone is to have a problem with that person as people’s behavior will undoubtedly change under pressure.

Battles are tiresome; one should avoid them at all cost, but if troubles keep knocking and one is forced to engage be aware of the following:

-NEVER fight over something that does not belong to you; the Gods do not like that.

-Keep your goal clear as situations of pressure will fog everything around you.

-Two heads thinks better that one, so have a partner, preferably someone with a different point of view than yours.

But, if you are dealing with a life changing event, or your hard-earned money, get yourself a damn barrister.

“I will not make you dependent on me.  My approach is to find alternative options under a circumstance and open new doors into a resolution of old problems. Clear the docket so you can see things from other angles as you absorb other possibilities. In time, after you had conquered your needs, you will be able to replace what does not work, accept what you cannot change, and accomplish what you want.”

If my writing helped or entertained you in any way, please consider a donation to assist Edge of Humanity Magazine to continue to provide neutral, outside of the box content.


Neutrality comes with the price of being disconnected. Society is composed of like-minded people; teal lovers search for bluish-green connections, and the burnt sienna worshipers choose to navigate a path that’s deep reddish brown. Embracing the color wheel will yield richer exposure and isolation.
There is no glory in neutrality.

Thank you.
