I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
It is so funny that the FACT that I’m an Alpha Male is so bothersome to insecure men. I get snail mail pointing out that I’m not one of the beautiful people so I’m not an Alpha Male. They are not capable of reading the other definitions of Alpha Male.
So here is another thing, I am a Sheepdog!
On Sheep, Wolves and Sheepdogs - I’m a sheepdog. I live to protect the flock and confront the big bad wolf!
Life is all about who are: the sheep, the wolves, and the sheepdogs. We choose which one we want to be.
Wolves are the one who want to be in control, live by causing fear, and take on the weak. They attack in the dark and fear a one-on-one fight with the sheepdog.
Sheep live in denial that there are no wolves and feel the sheepdog is the one they should fear. The sheepdog disturbs the sheep and is a constant reminder that there are indeed big bad wolves lurking around in the dark. They feel if they go along to get along the wolf will not attack and leave them alone, never understanding that the wolf is just picking them off one-by-one.
The sheep do not like the sheepdog as he looks a lot like the wolf in that he has fangs, willing to fight and if pushed enough has the capacity to take on and win against the wolf.
The sheepdog knows the wolf will attack once it feels it can and then quickly run away. The sheepdog lives for the day to protect the flock. The sheepdog is walking in the light of day and patrolling in the darkness the border to which the sheep roam free at times posing as a sheep to bring on an attack from the wolf. The sheepdog will bark at the shadows in the night as he knows that is where the wolf lives. The sheepdog waits for the time to have the righteous fight and understand the flock is more important than they are. They are not afraid to take on the big bad wolf even if it means it could destroy them when the pack of wolves come for the lone sheepdog.
A big difference between the Wolf and the Sheepdog is the sheepdog will not ever harm the sheep, he will protect at almost any cost to himself, but not his flock he is in charge of protecting. The sheepdog will sacrifice themselves for the flock and has nothing but the best interest of the flock in mind.
The other difference is there is just one Sheepdog, whereas the Wolf will howl and call upon his pack to protect the lone wolf since they are to capable of taking on a one-on-one fight and winning against a sheepdog.
There is nothing wrong with being the sheep, the wolf, or the sheepdog. That is part of life and there has to be sheep for the wolves to try and eat just as there has to be sheep for the sheepdog to protect them.
