My Opinion on the Recent Supreme Court Ruling on Roe v. Wade

Although this will come across as such, this is not a political post. Must read to the end to fully understand.

It’s crazy how a month ago everyone was heartbroken over innocent children being murdered at a school yet today they’re outraged they don’t have the choice to murder children themselves.

They go on to make arguments for having the right to choose what they do with their own bodies yet last year were complicit in persecuting those who made a personal choice to not get vaccinated.

They make arguments against “outdated” gun laws because we no longer have muskets yet don’t follow that same logic when it comes to what we know now vs fifty years ago scientifically about a fetus.

The hypocrisy is complete lunacy and lacks any logic. It takes any credibility they think they have on the topic and flushes it down the toilet.

People that know me know that I identify as conservative and are surprised when I take the pro-choice side of abortion. Prior to the pandemic I would tell them that it would be hypocritical of me not to be pro-choice when I believe in capital punishment. And now post-pandemic it would be even more hypocritical since I believe I should be able to choose what I do with my body.

I honestly don’t see how anyone could take me seriously if I said one was okay but not the other yet that’s is exactly what the majority of people are doing.

I’m not making an argument here for or against the ruling. This is not a politically charged post. It doesn’t matter which side of the political isle you’re on.

What I am doing is making an argument for being congruent. Look behind why you believe what you believe and make sure you hold yourself to those standards consistently.

If you truly believe “my body my choice” then believe that in all facets and not just abortion or the vaccine. If laws should change because times have changed when it comes to guns, don’t flip on that when it comes to science. It’s okay to change your opinion once you’ve learned more about something, but take that same logic and apply it to your other opinions to see if they’ve changed as well.

Love it or hate it but no one respects someone who is inconsistent in their beliefs.

Be congruent
Be consistent
(Yes, I know they’re synonyms but I’m going for the dramatic finish)


Be congruent
Be consistent
Use logic over emotion to validate your opinions
Be true to yourself
Become respected

My Thoughts on Therapy and it’s Effect on Society

I’m sure you either know someone who’s been in therapy, is in therapy, or therapy is something you’ve experienced yourself. And while I don’t personally see many benefits of therapy, I don’t necessarily think it’s all bad. But there is one glaring issue that I have with therapy that seems to stand out in most cases.

Let me start with a story. I have a close friend who is going to therapy. I’m going to call this person Pat to protect his identity. Since I’ve known Pat, he’s always had a bit of a short fuse. Pat is very argumentative and he feels the need to always be right. Pat rarely takes accountability for anything he’s done in his life and the results he has experienced in his life he considers a result of his upbringing.

When I chat with Pat, he tells me about his therapy sessions and how they’ve helped him identify his mother and how she raised him to be one of the reasons that Pat is the way he is. The therapist focuses on the family dynamics of how Pat was raised and what he had to go through during his childhood to somehow justify Pat’s behavior today.

Pat’s story seems like an extremely common example of what people I personally know have experienced with therapy. Heck, I have even tried therapy myself which was a complete waste of my time and my money. Nothing was ever accomplished and there were no tangible results from it. I already knew how I felt. I already communicated that to the people that were involved and at that point if things didn’t change it wasn’t on me.

This brings me to the reason that I’m writing this article and sharing my opinion with the masses. I just can’t stop thinking that it would make more sense to focus on what you can do moving forward. Focus on the things that you can control opposed to the things you can’t. All therapists are doing is helping to perpetuate the victim mindset that has become so prevalent in todays western culture.

Personally I feel like there is a lot of different content out there that can be more beneficial and is free or at least a low cost alternative to therapy that will garner actual results. I read a lot of books, consume a lot of content such as podcasts, YouTube videos, Audible, etc. that focus on your mindset. There’s some really great material out there. Books like Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins, Rhinoceros Success by Scott Alexander, or even just listening to free content like former Navy Seal Rob O’Neal discuss his life on the Vigilance Elite YouTube Channel which I will link here –

I know it’s a four hour long interview, so let me just mention a couple of items that really stood out to me. Around the 27:35 mark Rob talks about going through Seal training and how tomorrow you always start with a clean slate. He says “When you feel like quitting, and you will. Do not quit right now. That’s emotion. I want you to quit tomorrow. If you can keep quitting tomorrow you can do anything in life.” At the 57:42 mark he discusses getting punished for something he didn’t do wrong. And the instructors thought process behind that was to see if you it would get inside your head.

Most people choose not to be mentally strong in life. Most people choose not to take accountability for their actions. They feel like they’re a victim of someone else’s decisions and not their own. I do realize the medical industry, therapy included, makes its money from repeat business, however, would it not be prudent to focus on taking accountability and focusing on moving forward rather than placing blame on a past that can’t be changed?
