Outnumbered Yes


I liked this saying that I heard:


“Outnumbered and outgunned, but not outsmarted.”


I think there is a lot of truth to this. 


Might does not make right. 


Right makes right. 


There is a G-d above who watches over us. 


Those with the big guns may just end up shooting themselves in the foot. 


G-d reigns supreme and he gives wisdom and courage to his faithful.

The Hunted Becomes Hunters

I was on the treadmill and on the TV was the movie Rambo First Blood with Sylvester Stallone–he’s incredible. 


There is an amazing scene where he is running, outnumbered, outgunned, and being literally hunted in the woods. 


But as he is a special forces trained warrior, he turns the tables on the bad guys. 


– The hunted become the hunter!


Life is not Hollywood.


Yet, miracles do happen, and good can overcome evil. 


Like the more than 150 brave women of the USA Olympics Gymnastics Team who testified and put the creep Larry Nassar away for the rest of his disgusting life. 


The hunted can be empowered through the justice system and do what is right and put the bad guys away–where they should stay and rot out their miserable days. 


The innocent women who suffered at his dirty hands prevail!  😉

Mice End Up Dead

So there are three main ways of reacting when in a bullying situation by someone:


1) Passive – You can sit back and take it for now, shutting your mouth and turning off your feelings, maybe even running for safety, as you get temporarily scr*wed, but perhaps maintaining the moral high ground and smartly saving your chips and choosing your battles for the right time and place to set things right and the record straight. 


2) Aggressive – You can fight back, make sure you have a good strategy, but you may nonetheless end up blamed or bloodied, or who knows, maybe you actually win the day, but also you need to be sure to win the war. 


3) Assertive – You can hold your ground, assert your rights, maintain your own opinions, and do what you believe is right, being firm in your self-determination, but you could be reprimanded or punished for not falling in line or best case scenario, you could actually end up being respected for it.


Listen, there is no one right answer, but you need to be a man and not a mouse.


Protect yourself–and as long as you don’t go overboard or act like a jerk–be you, be proud, and don’t let anyone mistreat you. 😉
