You may think I am cruel, but I am not. You are very cruel, and you don’t mind abusing yourself, sometimes even showing disgraceful behavior towards other people. that, of course, is your call and you would like to make that none of My business
I am not cruel, I am Strict and I am the Meaner. What I do has a meaning, and I mean what I do. I am implementing stuff intentionally, thoughtfully, empathically, and with strictness and consequentiality, thoroughly but I am not cruel.
when a child runs towards rail tracks with the train approaching, and you run after the child and trip it before it reaches the tracks, and it has a bleeding knee because of the rescue mission, that is collateral damage, yes, but certainly not cruel. letting the child run into the tracks, that would be cruel
when you watch someone bully and abuse, letting them continue their destructive ways, is cruel. stopping them, even at the cost of causing some temporary discomfort, is not cruel. it is a necessary intervention.
when you have a tumor and the doctor is cutting it out and cuts into else untouched flesh, that also is a collateral damage that will be taken into account. The doctor is being thorough and not taking chances. That is hardly being cruel
When I am offering you #StrictMotivation, the methods may be archaic sometimes, tedious, or what have you and you may think they are cruel, but in that you are being unreasonable like a child, selfish like the bully and irresponsible like a doctor afraid to be thorough. You are factually being eaten by your own cancer of cruelty and shortsightedness.
If it makes you feel good to call Me names, and adjectives that don’t fit, though you may feel entitled to that opinion, you are doing yourself another disfavor. You are just proving My point that you do need a lot more training and a lot of said #StrictMotivation that triggered your ill response in the first place
I am not giving in to the ill, I am not bargaining with an enemy and I am not negotiating on those terms. I will work within the set parameters with consequence, thoroughly and whether you like Me (or my methods) or not is none of My business. Your behaviors as your betterment however are.
