How many times has someone said something to you and it actually changed the way you think? Or how many times has someone’s opinion mattered so much to you that it makes you think like THEM?
Everyone goes through a stage in life. We all learn, as we get older. Some choose not to learn and never seem to move on and are comfortable being uncomfortable. And some well, they just never grow up!
I recently read about differences between women and girls. Here’s the link.
My favorite point was “A girl throws tantrums. When displeased, upset or angry, she reacts just as she did as a child when she didn’t get her way with her parents. This often consists of screaming, pouting, giving the silent treatment, being passive aggressive and/or punishing. A woman still feels the emotions of being upset/displeased, but has cultivated the skill of responding versus reacting. She comes to the table as an adult, and communicates clearly what is bothering her.”
I have a friend, that I was very close to a couple of years ago. We still keep in touch. In fact, we unusually are more in touch now than we were before. And she reckons that it’s because I’m not as immature and childish as I was before. I agree. A lot has changed in the last 3 years. But the interesting point is how she feels that her opinion is the best opinion and if you do anything outside of her shallow little mind, you’re the shallow one.
Have you watched Shallow Hal? No? PLEASE go watch it.
This thing about judging people because of how they look, or what they wear, or where they eat or the kind of music they listen to, what sort of a job they have is so demeaning and only makes you look like an idiot.
You don’t know what someone’s going through. You don’t know how much one earns. You don’t know why someone never went to University. You don’t know why someone isn’t as fashionable. You don’t know because they don’t want you to know and you don’t know because you’re being narrow minded and not seeing beyond what your eyes see.
What if someone has a condition that doesn’t allow them to lose weight but rather put on? What if someone’s gone for years and years of treatment for their skin disorder but none of the treatments seem to have helped or worked.
Live and let live.
If we were all born equal, the world would be such a boring place.
We’re so diverse. We’re so different. Every single being is unique.
Let people be who they are. Let couples be from two completely different universes. Let individuals express themselves however they want to.
You have your opinion. Great! Voice it! But bare in mind, that everyone also has the right to IGNORE your opinion.
You have your belief and values. So do I. And they’re COMPLETELY different!
Thank you for voicing your opinion, but I’m going to go live my life… MY WAY!
