Assumption and judgement, what a pair. You could say that I consider them ugly cousins. These are a couple of darknesses that seep out of so many of us. I’d be curious to corral 1,000 random people of the world and inquire of them what their own personal definition of hate is. I’d imagine that a handful of them would give me such deep answers or perspectives from intriguing angles to the point of giving me goosebumps. That would be such a highlight. Though, I’d also imagine most people giving me their definition and then witnessing a glimmer of false pride in their eyes as if no such thing seeps from them in the least.
Hearing me say that people shouldn’t look at being wrong as a bad thing might make some people raise an eyebrow, but I hope the lot of you would agree. Being wrong translates into you having the option to wipe your slate clean. Wiping the slate clean doesn’t have to be this wildly life-changing event. We should be and can be willing to wipe our slates clean repeatedly in numerous compartments of our lives. You can’t build a building by just setting one fully built down on level ground, it has to be built brick by brick. It makes me wonder why such a simple idea is surpassed as often as it is.
Hate is usually in the smallest actions, the shortest sentences. A few of those a day from millions of people, and what do you have? The source of humanity’s decay. There will never be any peace in this world unless you search within yourself, yank all those nasty hidden leeches out of you and burn them with your passion and determination. No, not hand them on over to your enemies, burn them. People that have been eaten away to a greater extent need even further consideration, even further reflection. 🙂 ,
You cannot tell someone how to aesthetically present themselves, you cannot tell someone how to use a word, you cannot tell anyone these things with any rationalization. It doesn’t matter what race you are, you do not have the right of any influence whatsoever. It doesn’t matter what culture you’re imbedded in, you can dress whatever style you please and use whatever label you so choose. People, you have the freedom to choose to be a good person and also choose to use words in harmless ways. What you put into a word is all that’s there, the rest is in the imagination. Do not let words have power over you or assume your words have power over others. Too many people are skiddish with words, words that some ancestor a thousand years ago made up or words random teenagers made up a couple decades ago.
Words are empty and a person has the right to instill their own personal angle into any word they please. Yes, I’m referring to words that are usually dubbed as potentially offensive, words that were whipped up by imperfect humans, or meanings & intentions that strangers strive to stuff your face with- acting as if you put it all there yourself. People either use their own interpretations of words for harmless fun or to think outside the box with good intentions. Yes, there are people out there who do it sarcastically or to troll, but we have no clue which ones. Why continue to strangle each other with words that are man-made? Why do we limit ourselves to this? Why can’t we turn our focus to the things that truly matter, people who hold for us that mysterious thing called love or life-threatening events in our country or other countries that are laughing at us behind our backs right now?
If you cut out letters of a word from a newspaper and scattered them on a desk, that word has no power, correct? If you aligned these letters together to make sense, that word still holds no power. If someone walks by, sees that word on the desk and reads it out loud, that word still holds no power. Don’t ever let people who only see in black and white, who think only inside a small box that they have let society build for them, who live to sniff out every obscure crevice for a sign of potentially imperfect intentions tell you what actions to take or tell you specific ways you should be feeling through these words.
Know that only you know your true intentions, and that is all that will ever matter.
