The tied tongue by Tyler Shields
THE JUNKIE TONGUE MANIFESTO
1. Be attentive on misleading talking
When someone has no criteria to speak the truth and the good about their close reality or their related ones.
How can you expect from them less than confusion or maleficence to speak about things and people they know nothing about?
A better pill to swallow by Kelly Messick
2. Be brave on taking responsibility
The first indication of character is the braveness of taking responsibility over one’s own decisions, words and actions
In a higher level it means to achieve coherence between intentions, thoughts, words and actions.

3. The third vision is to look to yourself.
Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eyes and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother ‘let me take the speck out of your eye’, when all the time there is a plank in your own eye. You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
Matthew 7: 3-5
4. Maleficence is not worth the risk
Maleficence not only obliterates truth but also causes harm in vain attempts of relieving jealousy, grief and frustration
To risk one’s life for the sake of others is heroic, but to risk one’s life in the support of maleficence is villainy.

5. Drop self victimization.
“There are times in your life when you have been medicine for some, while poison for others. You used to think that you were a victim of your own story, until you realized the truth that you are the creator of your story.
You choose what type of person you will be and what type of impact you will leave on others.
You will never choose the destructive path of self and outward victimization again.”
Dr. Steve Maraboli

6. Avoid the do-do head trash.
Avoid doing read and doing speak trash. Don’t be a garbage can for anything that does not feed your intellect, stimulate your imagination, bring you well being or make you a more compassionate peaceful person.
Refuse to open your mind to other people’s trash and dirt.
Tune out anything that promotes conflict or controversy. This can infect you with a mind virus of cynism or defeat and you won’t even know it.”

7. Your happiness is not in anyone’s pocket.
One morning, they woke up different. Done with trying to figure out who was with them, against them or who bounced according to one’s mood, lack of understanding and emotional instability.
They were done with anything that did not bring them the inner peace and self love.
They understood that opinions were a dime a dozen, validation was for parking and loyalty wasn’t a word, but a lifestyle.
It was this day that their life changed. And not because of a person or a job, but because they realized that life is way too short to leave the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket.

8. Earn respect
Don’t ask for respect. Earn it.
Robin S. Sharma
Nothing is granted in life.
You do not inherit wealthy, wisdom nor respect.
You earn it, you conquer it, you develop it, in a every day dedication and hard working growing process.

9. Be a free soul
Freedom is to ask nothing, to expect nothing, to depend on nothing.
Heart mouth by Tyler Shields
10. Reafirm love and life.
In case of doubt,
Use a tongue “tourniquette” to speak less shit about others and yourself
