Well, I've always wondered in which age gap you fall? Your knowledge is rich and you express yourself in a lucid way, it's something which I've admired from day one and I can't help asking from which sources your gather all this information? Are you a reader, and if so then which sort of books do you prefer? And if I may say so I think you will make a good life coach, you certainly possess all the qualities which one should have to pursue that field.

I guess I can’t avoid this question forever. 🙂 So at the risk of losing 90% of my followers, I’m just over 40. 

Thanks for the kind words. I’m actually not an avid reader at all. If I do read, it’s usually non-fiction. I started reading Muhammed Asad’s Road to Mecca a few weeks ago, even though I bought it a few months ago, and I only finished about 20 pages so far. 

All my views are really based on personal experience and very little else. I’ve always been at odds with mainstream views since I was a kid, and I guess it rightfully earned me the ‘titles’ that are not so complimentary because I can understand why people would see me as pompous, arrogant, aloof, condescending, and so much more. I’ve actually been called all that and more directly by family, friends and strangers alike. 

But trying to be better than others is never what drives me. So I don’t pay much attention to such criticisms unless it’s accompanied by a seemingly sincere attempt to quantify it, in which case I’ll consider it and correct my views/actions if needed.

  1. Oh wow.I always got this vibe like you were mature than most people here 😀 It is my belief that intelligence intimidates people, even more when the person is steadfast in his beliefs and morals but I can’t be too sure, I haven’t had that much experience with these sort of people who are quick to label.I hope you’ll continue to post your views, it is refreshing to see someone voice their views with confidence.Your experiences , the ones you’ve shared, they’ve opened my mind to a lot of things I normally overlooked.I look forward to your posts.

    1. Thank you. I hope you’ll continue to share your views about my posts. I’ve found Tumblr to start having the same effect on me as FB, hence my decision to leave that platform for active blogging.
