My daughter posted a sign on Facebook that said: “Accusations from a narcissist are actually confessions.” There were comments of people agreeing with this statement one hundred percent. All narcissists use the same vocabulary and say the same words. The fact that the sign said that their accusations were confessions is amazing. If you have ever dealt with a narcissist you would understand. In the media, accusations are an everyday occurance. They throw them out there and then wait to see what happens. Sometimes they are denied, proven to be just false or a new form of accusatory lies appear and the dust settles on the original victim. This is a staple in politics. As the politicians compete with one another, they start with all types of accusations. Often when they are proven false they simply move on to new ones. If a person doesn’t have proof, they should not say things that are untrue just to hurt another person. That is really all it amounts to. The majority of the time it is nothing more than lies. It even happens in elementary all the way up to high school. Once the words are spoken, the gossip spreads and before long a student is hurt. It doesn’t achieve anything. For the person dealing with a narcissist, it gives them an opportunity to confront them and solve your issues. In the Good Gus series Bad Bart was accusatory towards Bob. However, Sheriff Gus solved the problem and proved that Bad Bart was wrong and that there was a different approach that could solve the problem. You can easily access the books online at Kindle with a few books on Nook and Waterstones. “Misplaced Trust” is full of characters who think nothing of making accusations. The book would be great for holiday reading. It’s online at 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
For the most part, people are spreading kindness every day. In these difficult times, it is important to think of others first. People are spreading kindness by posting on Facebook including jokes, vital information, songs and general assistance to everyone so we can all cope with remaining inside. As you all know I subscribe to the Irish Post. Their continual short videos are really funny. They had one about football and it was a group of soda cans lined up on a table and they managed to make one bent one look it was announcing scores. They also showed a video of friends of children doing drive by waving and singing happy birthday to birthday boys and girls. A neighborhood in Maine is socializing by sitting at the ends of their driveways apart from each other and having block parties. Neighbors in Italy are hanging out their window, balconies, piazza’s and serenading each other. In the states many people are using delivery services for groceries and leaving generous tips. It only takes a few thoughts and then spreading kindness is easy. As soon as I can finalize YouTube, I will be reading a book a week for the children. I will then work on “Misplaced Trust” for the adults. The real Gus is reading every day and posting online at the Cotuit Library in Cotuit, Massachusetts. I will also add a link for that library. The Good Gus series can be easily found on Kindle, Nook and Waterstones. “Misplaced Trust” is also online at 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
