“TOLERANCE” has a hidden ,inferiority meaning; “PITY”. A tolerant attitude is not what l want when l am doing my job.I need recognition and to be credited for my work ,or discredited.Corrected if l have erred .Not so long ago ,there was a cry for tolerance to the great influx of migrants seeking refuge for all the valid reasons into Europe.The migration continues, and will continue, because migration is as old as after creation day.It is not unique to Europe or America only.In fact every country on the globe has its share of migrants. To migrate is natural, an in born right for people to move from one continent to another:”Crossing borders in search of Dignity”.Dignity is the right to be heard,be seen, earn a living , pay taxes and live safely.Being human.Why is the term “tolerate” mean?It is a diminishing word by usage in reference to the expected treatment of migrants. Its implication is the newcomer has nothing to give ,but is there to be helped.Questions to reflect on:Does not cultural diversity play a more positive role?Don`t both parties benefit?The attitude of tolerating has a degree of prejudice.(one is more superior,the helper) .The lesser is in larger terms not expected to add to the growth of the nation as a whole ,or the well being of others.Who decides what is perfect ? The word tolerance should be completely erased in our human interactions.Let us be more inclusive in the creation of our systems.I say again :”Do not tolerate me.Do not pity me.Let us embrace one another,exchange stories,allow travel or migration.”
The Invisible Migrant is a Migrant who has decided to keep low,not voice their thoughts except to ask for assistance and this is a natural gift for safety’s sake. While finding one’s way in a new, environment one soon comes face to face with the reality that the expectations of a warm welcome are nowhere close to the truth.Dreams squashed as expressing yourself is halted.Language is a big barrier in a foreign land like Germany.You must learn how to communicate and nobody has patience with sign language .Making new friends is not the same like in Africa,in a country where people mind their own business a lot and have no tolerance for wasting their time.One must gather up all their stored time,energy resilience,combined with a strong desire to survive and thrive .Many do make it ,but not all.
Advise to any new comer:
*Nothing remains the same forever.Therefore do not give up,Trust you will come through victorious
*You MUST do your part.Be punctual for any and all appointments.
*Always ask if you are not sure of the Time.Ask where and what you are required to fill and bring along at your next meeting,class etc.
*Never sign anything you are not sure about.Ask for a translator or you bring a friend who speaks and understands the language well.Note:Claiming you were coerced or did not understand, etc are excuses and not tolerated.
-Ask and Listen.
-Ask and Listen
*Attend as many Free online and offline voluntary language classes as possible.Check on social media,google,ask here….etc but be involved.
*interact with others not only those from your home country or continent.Join clubs e.g book ,football, photography, jogging, climbing etc groups.
My story :
I am a Kenyan ,and arrived in Germany when the internet was not the norm. Word of mouth was the way to get around.As a Migrant my information was from fellow migrants, from my home country.That’s the way it was then to a large extent,but it was not the Best or only Way.”No excuses! l could have done it differently ,the right way.”The reason l am giving these Tips.
*Caution:Use your time wisely
*Remember and Don’t never Forget.Only your effort will get you many steps ahead of your peers.Don’t give up on you.There are many people,native Germans out there willing to assist even if it is one step,but you have to make time and show a willingness to learn

“The INVISIBLE MIGRANT. “
You have to follow the Gaze.You know what you want.Basically,we all want the Best for us.The Problem arises because we do not trust ourselves enough to think we have a solution. The Solution is not visible because we spend too much of our time and energy in Comparison Mode .This sucks up our energy from that which we can naturally resonate with.We get too distracted,lose confidence in and direction in the process. We reach confusion point, having an internal war from within.To cool it off we go into denial and slowly move into self-destructive habits. We have all been there in different ways.If this is you today,you do not have to stay there.Now is the hour to change!Make a conscious decision to seriously follow your gaze,online and offline, those or that ,which Builds You.Be Cautious of the time, money and energy spent in your interactions. It MUST Be for your Benefit first.This is the only way you can give others your Best because you are at Your Best.It is not always about finances ,or material things,it is All about what you do with what you have NOW! Feed your inner you with the Best for the Best reasons.
If you read to the End l know something ticked you,Go for it!Don’t question it!Follow your gaze!❤
Peace does not just happen! It comes as an intentional thought that precedes an action.Caring is sharing :Self-awareness tips.
•Find a quiet place ,for at least 5 minutes a day, to have a conversation with yourself.
•Breathe deep,slowly, in and out at least to a count of 7x
•Identify the dis- content with self by asking yourself questions:,”when did l start experiencing this unease ?one day,a week,a month ago?When exactly?Be specific.
3.Identify by Name….Ask yourself ;”Where was l?””Who was l with?” “What were we doing ?”and “What were we discussing?”
(chats /activities could have been offline or online in a group chat ,sms, video talk, meeting etc ).
The answers will be very helpful and allow us to see the why and what that triggered the emotion .Our well-being must be top priority,especially during these volatile times.We are social beings but this time be your own best friend in private conversation with you.
This exercise might end with worrying ,please remember:
If you feel like crying it is normal and it brings relief.Important is you take action. Do not dwell on the issue at great length.If it is draining your energy, please seek help . At no cost should you try to go at it alone ,for fear of shame or guilt.Many have travelled a similar path and are now free.
You are a child of dignity and this is the truth.This world needs you.You are worthy and valuable to mother Earth, our planet.Afresh!Anew Cheers!
Big Hug of Love
Where you put your Mind, determines how you feel.Your feelings have an effect on your finished product or is reflected in your services.Your thoughts do affect the vibrational energies you attract in your day to day interactions .Your mind needs pleasant thoughts to come up with harmless solutions ,most importantly you as a co-creator on planet earth.These simple facts we all know but for some strange reason ,we human beings choose to ignore in exchange for bitter fights and rapid competition. You might not have control over the circumstances you find yourself in,But You Have Control Over How You Respond To Every Single Circumstance.l wrote this short Blog with one small but necessary message l have learned the hard way:
