My POV-Philip Paulwell’s Case
What’s painful to me about this case/story are:
- A 10 month old (Phillip Paulwell’s daughter-reportedly), is reportedly dead.
- A child (Phillip Paulwell’s daughter with Miss Leoda Bradshaw-reportedly), is potentially going to grow up, and live the rest of her life, knowing that her mother has been sentenced to life, for killing her sister.
- The Young Beautiful Woman, in Toshyna Patterson (Paulwell’s murdered child mother), is reportedly dead.
- Miss Leoda Bradshaw-The lady whom considered Mr Paulwell as her spouse; The lady whom Mr Paulwell also share a child with, is reportedly the mastermind behind the kidnapping & murder of both Toshyna Patterson & Phillip Paulwell’s 10 month old daughter).
- Mr Phillip Paulwell: a former Minister of State (Jamaica) & current Member of Parliament (Jamaica), is now: without a daughter; going to have to work hard in the areas of nurturing, monitoring & protecting the mental health of his daughter, with Miss Bradshaw; going to have to work harder towards the protection of his mental space & physical self, all just to name few.
Leadership in Self, and Self Honour-Important For Futuristic Decision-Making & Miniming Harm to Others
Current & Future lives in Mr Paulwell’s case, have been taken away because of, in my view, decisions and outcomes of the now. This is a perfect highlight of the significance of leadership of self. Leadership that co-habit with Honor & Respect. Their shortage, or omission, will propel us towards the making of decisions and/or the taking of actions that would’ve been non-existent, with self-leadership & self-honor, in abundance.
As individuals, our lacking in continuos work on ourselves, in these departaments, render us less operable to cope with emotional, physical & other duress; and make decisions befitting our title/capacities of being a:
- A Partner.
- A Professional.
- A Student.
Live With Respect For Others
Mr Paulwell’s case, and the many others similar to his, should remind us of the significance of giving, and showing, respect to others as we go through our individual journeys; and where applicable, shared journeys (private relationships, professional relationships) in this thing called life. For without it, our actions and decisions will continue to be unethical & immoral, beyond “manageable scale”; ultimately leading to our demise as a people, species, and a world.
Work on Self Daily.
Protect Our Kids.
