Sinead O’Connor Writes Two More Open Letters To Miley Cyrus

This is starting to get intense. Apparently Miley Cyrus ‘retweeted’ tweets of Sinead’s from over two years ago to show that Sinead has recently been ‘wild’ and ‘uncouth’ as well, but Sinead argues that she was in the midst of seeking medical help for mental issues. This is likely the last time I’ll post about this until there’s a resolution because I really dislike posting about Miley Cyrus. I’m only posting these because I believe Sinead initially was talking to young women, not just Miley Cyrus. But it’s seemingly becoming more and more personal with more pokes and prods from Ms. Cyrus.

These are Sinead O’Connor’s words, so disregard any grammatical or spelling mistakes.

Here is the 2nd open letter to Miley; NSFW language, but we’re all adults so I wouldn’t worry about it:

Miley… Really? Who the fuck is advising you? Because taking me on is even more fuckin’ stupid than behaving like a prostitute and calling it feminism. You have posted today tweets of mine which are two years old, which were posted by me when I was unwell and seeking help so as to make them look like they are recent. In doing so you mock myself and Amanda Bynes for having suffered with mental health issues and for having sought help.

I mean really really… who advises you? have you any idea how stupid and dangerous it is to mock people for suffering illness? You will yourself one day suffer such illness, that is without doubt. The course you have set yourself upon can only end in that, trust me.
I am staggered that any 20 yr old woman of the 21st century could behave in such a dangerous and irresponsible manner as to not only send the signal to young women that its ok to act like prostitutes but also to the signal that those who have suffered or do suffer mental health problems are to be mocked and have their opinions invalidated. Have you no sense of danger at all? or responsibility? Remove your tweets immediately or you will hear from my lawyers. I am certain you will be hearing from all manner of mental health advocacy groups also. It is not acceptable to mock any person for having suffered.

It is most unbecoming of you to respond in such a fashion to someone who expressed care for you. And worse that you are such an anti-female tool of the anti-female music industry. I hope that you will apologise to Amanda Bynes and to any person who has been wounded by your mockery of those who have suffered. And I hope that you will wake up and understand that you in fact are a danger to women.
Furthermore you posted a photo of me tearing the pope’s photo .. as if to imply insanity.. by doing so all you have achieved is to expose your staggering ignorance.

I suggest you read The Philadelphia Report, The Boston Report, all the reports which will illuminate for you why that action of mine remains sane and valid. By mocking it you mock every child who suffered sexual abuse at the hands of priests and had it covered by the Vatican. You could really do with educating yourself, that is if you’re not too busy getting your tits out to read.

Here is the third open letter:

Third letter to Miley


I have no interest whatsoever in meeting you. You had plenty of time yesterday to abuse Amanda Bynes .. an entirely innocent party.. and myself.. who also did nothing to deserve your abuse.. along with every other sufferer of mental health problems and every person who suffered abuse at the hands of priests. 

You can take five minutes today between g- string fuckin’ changes to publicly apologise and remove your abusive tweets. If you do not then you don’t give a shit who you mock and what damage you do by being so ignorant. 
When you publicly apologise to Amanda and myself and all mental health sufferers as well as all who were abused by priests that will end the matter as far as I am concerned.

what you did yesterday was designed to damage me and my career and has caused me enormous distress and harassment and has potential to damage my career, since you deliberately gave the impression those tweets of mine were not two years old but reflect my current condition. If you cannot apologize I will have no choice but to bring legal proceedings against you since it is extremely hard to be given work when people think one is suffering from mental illness. 

I have no interest in or desire to cause you trouble but if you do not apologise for having deliberately tried to cause me hurt and trouble personally and professionally I will have to bring pressure upon you. 
When you end up in the psych ward or rehab I’ll be happy to visit you.. and would not lower myself to mock you. 
Be a proper woman and make the public apologies I have listed above. Your hosting SNL is a bullshit reason for not taking five minutes to do the right thing and your behaviour yesterday will rebound upon you very badly. 

You have no business abusing Amanda Bynes or anyone else. How do you think you made her feel yesterday? How do you feel when your friend Britney Spears is mocked and humiliated for having had mental health problems? I know I personally want to bash those who treat her that way. If she is your friend and more importantly if you are a true friend to her.. you ought apologise for joining those who mock and humiliate women who have been too nice frankly, to manage the music business without sensibly losing their minds.

Cease behaving in an anti-female capacity. You will become the victim of it shortly. Soon it will be you the media ‘crazy’ .. and you will not enjoy it.. and you will appreciate people (like myself) standing up for you. Which I will be happy to do.. if you earn my respect today by apologising publicly.

Welp. That’s that.

What’s your opinion on the situation? Should Sinead just shut up, or should Miley Cyrus grow up?


Hump Day: Finding Motivation

Yesterday I was somewhat down on myself, and I wasn’t really sure why.  I couldn’t conjure up that motivation to do anything yesterday it seemed.  I wasn’t sick, injured, or tired, I just couldn’t get myself to do anything other than check my phone every twenty seconds (a curse my generation is known for).

Then I decided I wanted to get motivated, so I clicked ‘Safari’ on my phone to open up a browser and Googled ‘How to find motivation.’  It didn’t really turn up much other than a few lousy, supposed-to-be inspiring quotes and pictures with motivational sayings under them.  Sigh.

While wallowing in my lack of motivation, I had a great thought run through my head.  “Why not check Reddit?  Every time you’ve been there you’ve learned something and remembered it well.  Maybe the same will do for motivation?”  Sure, why not. Off to Reddit I went.

On Reddit’s main site I searched the term ‘motivation.’  There were a plethora of options for motivating one’s self for many different reasons: eating right, staying the course for exercise goals, quitting smoking/chewing tobacco, giving up certain drugs, waking up early in the morning, and several other reasons to keep motivation up.

Here is what will appear if you search 'motivation' on Reddit's main page.  As you can see there is a wealth of motivation to be found here.  Spectacular.

Yet I was looking just for general motivation.  Motivation that isn’t tied to exercising (I exercise on a daily basis, one of the few things I don’t need to motivate myself to do), drugs (I don’t do them), smoking/chewing tobacco (I don’t partake), or waking up early in the morning (I may have to revisit this if I get a job that requires me to get up early in the morning).  So what motivation did I find to help me find purpose yesterday?  I clicked on /r/GetMotivated in the subreddit listing at the top of the page, but originally thought it would just be more about exercise.  I was cheerfully wrong.

(A subreddit is a page dedicated to a certain topic, such as motivation, and can be broken down to even further subreddits if necessary.)

The third link on the /r/GetMotivated is titled “Introduction To Motivation.”  I thought, “There can’t be a better place to start than this!” And I was right, this was the best place to start to find my motivation.  Here is a snippet of it:

Motivation is an emotion

Have you ever seen a post on /r/getmotivated that pumps you up – this changes everything! I’m going to go out and make my life everything that it’s meant to be! Only… a week passes and nothing much has changed.

The fact the motivation comes and goes after reading something motivational in the same way that sadness comes and goes after reading something sad indicates that motivation is an emotion.

The fact that motivation is an emotion has both advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantages are that it can fade quickly, especially when we are run down, tired, discouraged. The advantage is that we can control our emotions. Not only can we control our emotions, but the more we exercise control of our emotions, the more skilled we become at controlling our emotions.

We can make ourselves feel happy by remembering happy times, feeling ourselves in a past happy moment, fully associating with all the details and making that past experience real in the present. The same is true with motivation. I can remember times when I was down and out wanting to give up, but I stood back up and pushed through the pain and was able to make something great happen. This is motivation that comes from within me.

You have all the motivation you need within yourself right now. If you keep pushing yourself in terms of keeping your motivation and will power at a high level you will begin to find it easier to get and stay motivated.

Here is the rest of it.  Truly good work by  “TheCourageWolf” here.  Another post made me just as motivated as this, but it is more of a pep talk motivation if that works for you!

What motivates you everyday? Let me know in the comments!
