How I am like Trump
This is not a political post. This is a psychological inquiry into mySelf and human nature.
WARNING! You may not like this post of self examination because it may challenge your own personal beliefs or biases. So, only the strongest of will, most open-minded, and highly mature persons are allowed. Hahahaha! Not really. But sometimes I feel like those are the only people reading my blog! (I love you ALL! ❤️🦋🌀)
I am like Trump because I feel an urge to speak my mind, publicly. This has been true of me since I was a teenager and started talking to anyone and everyone on my dad’s CB radio! 🔈🎤
I am like Trump because I love looking at the whole enchilada, or big picture of a situation (and of life). And it’s freakin’ HUGE! (By the way, I love using the word “huge” and don’t want to stop using it. I know at any given point, we are only seeing and experiencing a small segment of life (that which we ourselves are living), but beyond my own personal space, I see a huge world! A ginormous world full of abundance and unlimited possibilities for ALL. ❤️🌀
I am like Trump because I think I could be a good leader. (Emphasis on “think.”) I would rather lead than follow. And true leaders, learn from their mistakes. 🧐💭
I am like Trump because while I dislike criticism (who doesn’t?), I can tolerate it, learn from it, and on my better days, use it to empower mySelf. A lot of my best ideas have been born from changing my perspective. One of my mantras is: Thank you for helping me make a better choice. And it was birthed after working for someone who irritated me—DAILY! ❤️🤪
I am like Trump because I often follow my feelings, especially about medical stuff (duh, my book, which offers advice to others), and how I take care of my own health. I don’t wait for double blind, placebo controlled studies—I Am The Placebo. Nod to Dr. Joe Dispenza. ❤️😉
I am like Trump because I like to use Twitter. It is a cultural phenomenon! (Actually, that could be said about all social media.) I write like I speak also. Mostly, my brain isn’t fully engaged until my mouth starts moving! Hahahaha! Yes, that gets me into trouble at times. But, you hear my honest answer, even if you don’t like it. I am not a politician! 🤯🤣 I love how Twitter helps keep me from overthinking (as I am obviously doing now), while coaxing me to write concisely and in the moment—though I don’t tweet very often, I have a strong urge to tweet. 🐦😉
I am like Trump because I am not always right, but I am always considering my next move—often 3 steps ahead. (A good chess player, though I don’t play chess.) 😉🤯
I am like Trump because I am a strategic thinker, or critical thinker. And at this point you may be thinking critically of me! Hahahaha! Why does the Billy Joel song, “You May Be Right” ring in my ears as I write this?!? 🎼🙃
I am like Trump because I value a solid work ethic, and highly promote personal liberties, assuming proper guidance (learn and earn). ✍️💵
I am like Trump because I value education. I value street smarts as much as higher education (as I have learned from both). I taught my children (and those under my watch), not to touch the hot stove. (I recognize controls and rules are not necessarily a bad thing, and are good until a level of maturation, independence, and critical thinking is achieved. 🕰💡
So, you see, I can write a short blog article! Hahahaha! 🤣😂🤣
I may not have a lot in common with President Trump, but my dad thought a lot of him (as my dad was a wheeler dealer and thrived on the art of a deal), and so do millions of Americans. ❤️🇺🇸
Thus, I thought it might be wise of me to analyze (and note), where I align with our president—in particular, before criticizing him for his tweets or decisions. And as you know, I really dislike labels, name-calling, and such.
This was the inspiration for my process and write this article:
- My article from 2019: https://sheilamurrey.net/2019/01/16/name-calling/
- My article from 2018: https://sheilamurrey.net/2018/08/17/speaking-my-truth-about-church-coverup/
- My article from 2014: https://sheilamurrey.net/2014/01/19/why-do-i-censor-or-limit-myself-god-is-just-be/
Oh, and I almost forgot…
I am like Trump because I wrote a book! Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life!
As my husband often says, “He who tooteth not his own horn, the same shall not be tooted”!
As always, I hope I have inspired you to find a better feeling thought! Please comment and let me know. Much love and many blessings to you and yours.
Amen. Awomen. Namaste. OM ❤️🦋🌀

I hear ya! I thought I would take on a deeper challenge though. Someone whom I didn’t think I would have anything in common with. 😉

So refreshing to read an article that actually says Trump may have some virtues and is not the devil incarnate, just risen from hell to wreak vengeance on the world. I often wonder what Trump’s presidency would have been like if he was not hounded, scolded, hated, mischaracterised etc.etc.etc. from the very start of his presidency. I don’t agree with all that he does but Democrats et.al. could at least have given him a chance.

Yes, that is EXACTLY the way I feel. Granted he appears to do things I don’t personally agree with, I have to wonder how much mischaracterization is going on when seemingly every Democrat hates him (though I know not every Democrat does—because those who are “progressives” actually do believe in Love, Tolerance, Acceptance, Allowing, and so forth), and it’s hard for me to think they are the “haters”—they know what we focus on expands. ❤️🦋🌀
Engaging article as usual. We all share some traits with Trump, both good and bad. We also share some traits with Jesus Christ. It’s simply a matter of discovering this and nurturing the good. I believe some day we will be held accountable to Jesus Christ, but Trump will be irrelevant. It depends on who your standard of excellence is.

Oh! Excellent points, Jerry!! I kept this positive, for the most part and didn’t go into the negative traits—but I am also like Trump in some not so nice ways, such as using vulgarity at times (I do consider time & place).
I hear you about sharing traits with Jesus, and I agree (love that!), but I think if I did a self study on that and wrote about it, the article would sound pious.
I wonder how many of us will be irrelevant in the end? Never thought about that.
Standard of excellence. Ah! Jesus, Mother Theresa, Ghandi, and the healers of the world come to mind. Thank you sooo much for reading and commenting!
