Wise Observations via Steve Jobs

The story has that the last words of Steve Jobs, a billionaire, were shortly before he died at the age of 56:

“I have reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In the eyes of others, my life is a success. Aside from work, I have had little joy. In the end, wealth is just a fact I’ve become accustomed to.

Right now I’m in the hospital remembering my entire life, all the recognition and wealth I’ve been so proud of, has faded and become insignificant in the eyes of impending death.

You can hire someone to drive your car or make money for you, but it is impossible to hire someone to take sickness and die for you.

Material things lost can be found again. But there is one thing that never returns if it is lost: life.

Whatever stage of life we are in, over time we will face the day that the curtain closes.

Therefore, love your family, your partner, your children and friends.. Treat them right. Cherish them.

As we get older and wiser we slowly realize that your $300 or $30 watch both give the same time

Whether we have a $300 or $30 wallet, the amount in it is the same.

Whether we drive a $150,000 car or a $30,000 car, the road and the distance are the same, and we reach the same destination.

Whether we drink a $1000 bottle of wine or $10, the hangover is the same.

Whether the house we live in is 100 or 1000 m2, the loneliness is the same.

You will realize that your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.

Whether you travel first class or second class, if the plane crashes you fall down…

That’s why I hope you realize when you have friends, children, family, siblings, that it’s important that you talk, laugh, sing. Because that is real happiness!

An indisputable fact in life:

Don’t teach your children to be rich.

Teach them to be happy.

Teach them about the value of things and not the price.

Life is beautiful! ”

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
