Hi Alex,You are such a Violet! I love it! Have you read Life Colors & Love Colors? You're using all the words that Violets use. I do show Violets how to stay "in power" in my book - so you're not so frustrated by the conditions on the planet. (I know how you Violets get frustrated with the level of (un)consciousness here.)
Violets - in power - teach by example. (And yes - just like you said - Out of power, Violets tend to preach, judge, and become irritated and impatient with the "stupidity" of people.) smiles.....
Living it - showing by example that there is another way to do life - is the best way to show people what you're talking about. Telling people they're stupid or wrong - will just make them withdraw and not listen. (Most of us hate being told what to do. All of us dislike being told we're stupid or wrong.)
Violets get to learn to see the bigger picture - not the small details ... and see that we are all in this together. (Not that you like hearing that.) So what do you think Violets are here to learn - and then do?
Anyway, keep smiling. Things are changing. I'm seeing it - and people are saying different things to me. I'm seeing a lot of Violet clients who are desperately trying to find a way to help the planet. (And none of them are talking about kids and husbands - unless they're creating drama in their lives as a way to avoid facing their own issues.)
Have fun! I know it can be challenging to be a Violet. But - you did choose it - so I guess you wanted the bigger challenges and the bigger questions. (The payoff is bigger though - when you finally find your answers and make peace with it all.)
