On this possibly inaccurate day in history Julius Caesar was stabbed in the back by his friends and advisors. He was warned of the threat but chose not to take it to seriously. That’s is an assumption on my part since, well, he did die.
People are treacherous and it takes on a life of it’s own once begun. Wondering what would happen if, and then talking to others about it can have serious repercussions. It’s not always just a “what if” to certain disturbed individuals. Backstabbing, which is really what happened to poor old Julius has been taken down a notch now to simple trash talking behind someone else’s back, that’s where it comes from though. Social media and the news have taken it all to an entirely new level though.
Wanting to make the world a better place by hanging the Dictator in question from the yardarm, or defenestrating the king can have serious repercussions down the line. No one likes the backstabbing when it happens but everyone allows it. I think it’s an unavoidable truth of this world now, which is sad. Sharpen those knives folks, its National backstabbing month… Odd how march is immediately followed up with “Just Kidding” day on April first…
"Whatever you do, don´t stop writing, write only for yourself if that´s what you want". It might sound as nothing, but in a time in which I doubted so much about myself, it meant the world for me.
