Human Dignity means freedom

The most important thing you have is your pride, your dignity. If animals need poison and fangs to survive (survival of the fittest), we humans need our dignity.
Most shapes of socio-economic rule, from slavery to feudalism, to monarchy, to capitalism and socialism are in nature exploitative; one group of the society oppresses and usurps the other group.
Many philosophers and sociologists have said it before, so I'm not discoursing on some new world theory, I'm merely observing out of personal experience a phenomena of this world.
On a positive note, though, being contrary to appearance a positivist rather than a cynic, I believe that the way to survive in the exploitative unjust world, is by never ever submitting to your fate, never ever submitting to the bullies and the rulers, and the owners.
Slavery is a state of mind, not a real situation. If you want to escape slavery and be free to follow your dreams, be able to live your life, you can.
Do not submit to those who have more property, money, status, and political power.
Do not submit to the dictatorship of an oligarchy, or to the dictatorship of the majority either.
Never give up on your beliefs and dreams.
You can escape slavery if you always hold on to your dignity.
No one owns you.
You are free to think, believe, and live the way you want to.
The only limit is the freedom of the other.

A tale of work life: you are not a slave

My boss said: “Seems like you are not interested in your work at all”. “Well, I answered, I was in the beginning, but now it has been 14 months doing this job, and I can’t be interested anymore, it is psychological, I am doing my best” He nodded in agreement, and said “Yes, yes”. 
I was promoted, and I was looking myself for a replacement, when without even informing me properly they pushed me again in a smaller office, with the coffee machine besides it. It is only freaking natural, no matter how you look at it, that I will not be interested in this work. 
I believe that you have to concentrate on your current work, otherwise you do not deserve your dreams, but when you have worked hard enough, and then you were deceived, you obviously will rebel. 

There is no reason to work hard enough if there is no incentive. You should not work hard enough without an incentive. People are moved by motives. If we do not follow our dreams in our line of work, we’re mere slaves. We all work to achieve something great, and that is why we endure the stress and the fatigue of everyday life. If there is no goal, than we are all Sisyphus pushing a big rock up and down a hill. 

I’m sorry but I am not a slave. I do not give my all, if I am not paid back for my effort!!!

Self-help tips to happiness

Find something to love instead of something to hate
Find a reason to live, instead of a reason to die
Find a way to create, instead of a way to destroy
Chase your dreams, not your duties
Never deny who you are
Never give up what you want
Never conform
Never compromise
Never settle
Fly as high as you can, the sky is your limit,
your dreams are your fuel
Connect your body, mind and soul, and find your inner core
Break all walls and be one with the universe,
All is one, and one is all
Let the light of truth, beauty and love
Guide you to your destined path
And bring you to your given home
Find a reason to live,
Fight with your all,
Never give up
And do not hate,
