Be the Solution. Learn to Communicate with Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence isn't about being smart - it's about being nice. Just be nice.
In Politics it's called Diplomacy.
It's learning to "Agree to Disagree with Decency."
It is learning to treat PEOPLE as Individuals.
It is learning how NOT TO internalize the things we are being shown in the Media.
We are NOT our Actors.
We are NOT our Musicians.
We are NOT our Politicians.
PEOPLE are Individuals.
PEOPLE "Playing the Name Game with the Media" is CAUSING the Delusions of millions of Americans who cannot separate Fact from Fiction.
This is why we need Complete & Total ETHICS REFORM in this country, beginning with the passage of HR1 the "For the People Act," a return to the Fairness Doctrine in Broadcast & Ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment.
When Party Politics "on both sides" have become so viscous that Primary Candidates on the "same side" make wildly unhinged claims about Candidates of the same Party while trying to prove themselves to be "the one" it just isn't worth it to try to HELP.
For this reason, I will not be participating in any Phone Banking, Canvassing, Door Knocking or any other Political Campaign Activities this Election cycle. I just don't need the aggravation in my life
In the 2018 Midterm Elections, I sacrificed my business, my Livelihood & my Paycheck for the greater Greater good to help Elect DEMOCRATS & found myself being attacked because of the NAME of the Harris County Clerk: Stan Stanart a Republican MAN.
I am a DEMOCRATIC WOMAN.
Anyone with a pair of eyes can VERIFY for themselves that everything about this is just plain WRONG & quite frankly DELUSIONAL THOUGHT.
STAN STANART IS A MAN.
A REPUBLICAN MAN.
I AM A WOMAN.
A DEMOCRATIC WOMAN.
Following along this same train of thought, anyone with a family member whose NAME is the same as our current President who thinks the President is their Father is not thinking clearly.
It is DELUSIONAL THOUGHT.
Unless they have a Birth Certificate showing a family relationship this is just plain WRONG.
I wrote my Book & opened this Web Page long before the MidTerm Elections back in 2018 & had not yet met any of my "Political Frenemies."
Some of these people act like this is about them.
No it is not.
It is about a Bully NAMED Donald Trump.
Can you imagine the conversation between the Republican Harris County Clerk & I if I had internalize what people were saying about those NAMES - & walked right up to him to "claim my namesake?"
What might that conversation sound like?
"Hey there Stan Stanart. I'm Lisa Stanley. Thank You for keeping my seat at the table warm - but I'm here now. You can go home."
He would look at me like I was a crazy person.
But I'm not.
A big part of both ETHICS & Emotional Intelligence is the concept of Non-Retaliation.
When a person is being attacked, how many times do you need to turn the other cheek & walk away before you say - ok, that's it. You've crossed a line too far?
This is where I'm at & I finally needed to speak up.
I'm trying to PROVIDE SOLUTIONS to this garbage.
There are plenty of people in all areas of Public Life: Music, Movies, Politics etc., that have names similar to mine - both first & last name.
Maybe I should claim to be related to Women's Rights Pioneer Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
We're both Stans, right?
How well do you think that would sit with Stanton's living relatives???
This is why we MUST HAVE ETHICS REFORM.
This is not right.
And it is causing problems in Society.
Be the Solution - not part of the problem.
