This is one of those 'random' blogs about something that caught my attention on social media - it is SO TRUE...
Some may see the short excerpt that I share at the end of this blog as simply the spreading of one person's negative views & opinions. However, I see it as a "realistic view" of a growing problem in our society - a problem that often leads to mental & physical bullying. I have chosen to put a positive spin on the excerpt by using it to (a) remind us to check our own behavior and (b) to help those unfairly judged, criticized or wrongly labeled learn & grow from the experience. You will understand what I mean as you read on.
I'm sure most of us have felt unfairly judged or wrongly labeled at some time in our life. Some of you may have even been unfairly judged or wrongly labeled for your entire life. However, the real question is, did you allow it to weaken you or did you force it to strengthen you?
As mentioned earlier, I believe there's an underlying message of encouragement in the post in that it identifies the real problem as society values and dismisses the validity of the offensive words used to unfairly judge, criticize or label a person. A frequently presented argument is that unfair judgement and wrongly labeling often stems from the perpetrator's own personal baggage and insecurities; a smaller percentage coming from people who genuinely care and want the best for you but just show it in the wrong way. However, let's remember this blog is centered around the adjectives unfairly & wrongly. With that said, we still sometimes need to be reminded that the problem is not with us but with the perpetrator.
