Coffee Is Not The Devil
Posted by TSE
As the old folks used to say,
A hit dog will holler.
You can stop sending hate mail now…
I did not say coffee is bad! I didn’t say don’t drink it. I am not a fan, but I may have a cup every blue moon. Black coffee is great for congestion and mocha latte is my sweet cheat. Coffee is not the devil.
What I said was if you’re a coach, therapist, advisor, whatever type of leader who is in the business of telling people how to live better… maybe stop telling the world you can’t function without coffee while telling others how to be positive, eat right, be successful, healthy, get a job, an education or let go of addiction or any other problems. You can’t teach what you don’t know. Apparently you don’t know how to function without coffee.
You are the blind leading the blind because you are addicted to caffeine and or sugar. “No one’s perfect and everyone has their vice, ways to cope, home remedies, etc.” I hear you and agree the sooner that is realized socially the better. But offering tips and telling people who aren’t like you how to live, think and act is the crux of the issue. The addiction is the line… “can’t function without” was my focus. You don’t have to like what I like, I don’t have to be a “coffee drinker,” a sugar addict, a crackhead or have permed hair to understand.
Everyone would have a job if they thought like you. Right? They’d have wealth if they were more positive. They aren’t successful because they don’t know the Law of Attraction, they can’t lose weight unless they train like you and they must all not eat GMO or be duped by the political agenda of government…. But meanwhile you can’t say any of this until you’ve had your coffee. Maybe every crime, miscellaneous infraction in Hollywood, job loss, and politician you don’t like just didn’t get to have any coffee… If it’s an excuse for you why not them?
It is also an epic PR fail for the hypocrite, it’s bad marketing… I and surely others don’t trust your wisdom now. How can I follow your advice if I don’t add coffee? That was your free tip because I care. Your welcome.
I stepped on some toes of folks near and far… Some very close to me, but they know better. I don’t mince words and I don’t need anyone to translate. If you want to set yourself apart from the foolishness, talk about things that no one wants to talk about, least of all you.
