When you change your mind
I usually try not to write about tragedies, but I think this time, I’ll make an exception. Let’s go. I don’t know Pop Smoke or his music. What I do know is that his assassination created a wave on the Twittersphere. To some extent, Pop Smoke, real name Bashar Barakah Jackson, was a messenger of the truth.
If you read my previous post, I was alluding to the fact that although cognitive and logical intelligence can often deceive us, emotional intelligence was, forgive the word, impossible to fake. If Bashar’s fans are saddened by the loss of their idol, we send them our condolences. If you yourself are distressed by Pop’s death, you can confirm beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is, for you, a truth.
On the other hand, if you want everyone to share your suffering, you will be forever disappointed, because this truth, although it seems unquestionable to you, can apply, alas, only to you. So take the time you need to grieve and don’t waste your time expecting the same from others.
