What is a freedom of speech ?

Freedom of speech allows you to call me idiot. Well, it also allows me to reply you back, with the same word, or even worse, because i am very creative when i insult people. Democracy brings us choice, bunch of words for expression of our opinions and we use it in limitless amounts. The problem is, it is easier to use free speech, than to tolerate this.

Croatian actress Nina Violić stuck these days in trap of this freedom. She said that she lives in "ass of the world", so she offended my country Croatia. She is also citizen of my beautiful country and she enjoys in some benefits, more than other citizens, because she is "free artist. " And my country has benefits for free artists, that they can't die from hunger, one day when they will not be so popular and when their movies, songs and other skills will not bring them money. Despite of all, Nina felt terrible in our country, so she mentioned fascism and fear from nationalism. Meanwhile, social networks exploded from insults toward Nina, she got some threats, and she started to fear for her life and life or her child.

To be honest, it is not nice to threat someone, especially not to little children, because every mother will afraid the most for her kid. But, what was Nina thinking when she openly talked about "ass of this world?" Maybe she doesn't like Croatia, but here are many citizens who love their country, no matter how much injustice and bad decisions from our politicians happened now days. That is why we have elections to choose better people who will make good decisions, if they are able too. Except this, when you spit in plate where you eat, you talk about yourself more than you think. So, Nina yelled wolf, and wolf came from the corner to bite her.

Freedom of speech is very twisted value. You can send me to hell and i can slap you. You can express your opinion, but it will not protects you from mocking and insulting. Pull me for tongue, i will reply, because, surprise, i heard from freedom of speech too. 

If you really know real meaning of this freedom, this means you must have arguments. 

No swear, because it doesn't make good impression about you.

Don't make yourself victim, because you were the one who attacked first. 

Be ready for feedback. Someone will not like it. 

Jean J. Rousseau talked about freedom, as value which we can use until we don't hurt freedom of others. Ok, i can say to my boss that she is fat cow, but i will get punishment, because i broke ethics codex. Well, why should not i make it on other way ? I can simply say that i disagree with her and i can give her idea how to make our collaboration better. 

Freedom of speech is not for everyone. If you use this to insult and hurt people, this is battlefield, not freedom. If you use this to complain and make better system, then you should know something about laws. You should know something about insult of honor, about penalties and hatred speech. Once when you learn this, you can make public speech without shame that somebody will laugh to you, or without fear that someone will threat you. 

Maybe Nina thinks she was so cool when she mentioned "mother pussy" or "ass of the world". Unfortunately, her enemies understood this as challenge, to open war on her. In this case, she should ask herself : "I really need this?" Just because she is not happy with life in her country. Well, surprise, nothing changed after her statement. Except big amount of people laughed.

Women are not weak as they look

Where is a fight, there is love. Since childhood opposite genders tease each other, make conflicts and argue, just to compare their mental strength. Men are strong gender by nature, but many of them underestimate woman’s will and character. Some judgments define a woman as fragile, sensitive creature, and the man who is educated in the traditional family will often underestimate a woman. He will see the weak creature in the corner with a face full of tears. Well, a woman can defend herself in thousand ways. She will seduce you to obey you. She will pretend weakness just to take revenge on you if you humiliate her. Be ready for her trick as on poker table. Especially men who are used to silent, obedient woman can’t count on such resistance. Remember, the woman is the one who is working and clean house after work, carry for kids and for your laundry and your meal. Women are multi-tasking, so how can they be weak? When you fall in love with a woman who can care for herself, she doesn’t …

Are you the hunter or the kill?

Criticism is a sensitive field. It is easy to give critics, to mock someone, but it is not easy to receive this in return and to make a joke by yourself. Do you laugh at yourself, in public? Do you allow friends to tease you, even this means that they will overrate your faults and make your values smaller? There is a thin line between social clown and person who loves to make jokes about yourself. If you are a hunter, if you respect yourself, you will allow the certain dose of criticism but you will not be a doormat. If you ask me to whom you must be grateful, maybe my answer will surprise you. Yes, i am grateful to my parents because they give me motivation, strong will, and attitude. I am grateful to my sister because she stood on my side when i felt miserable. I am grateful to my husband for accepting me as i am, even when i was the worst nightmare. Mostly, i am grateful to my rivals, to develop my strength. As i passed my initiation, faced with many troubles and get out from bigg…

Are you grateful for the things you have ?

Are you grateful for the things you have in your life? I don’t think about furniture or new plates, i think about your private and professional life. Sometimes, we forget to save gratitude in our heart because our mind is too busy by dreaming about something we still did not realize. Gradation looks like this: I don’t have boyfriend. I have boyfriend but we are not married. We are married but we don’t have kids. We have only one child. Our kid is not obedient, we have problematic teenager.
In professional plan, we can use same pattern: I am studying and i don’t have job. I have job but my salary is small. I have good salary but i have no free time. I have job but my boss is dictator. It is about human nature, where all are rivals, competitors and opponents. Why your neighbor owe expensive car, and you are going at work with bus? Why your kids can’t have designers clothes? Why your friend has bigger flat then you? We are dreaming because of our ambitions. It is not bad, i am also ambiti…
