I am so filled with anger at the moment! What is wrong with the human race! Why are we still measuring the people around us? Why does it matter to others what my religion is, if I’m drawn to men or women, what colour my skin is, if I’m different from others in I don’t even care how many ways!
Of course I’m different! The world would be utterly boring if we were all the same! Scary too! Imagine all your neighbors and colleagues would be like President Trump?!
I’ll let that sink in a little…
No… life is good because we are all different! Why are so many people scared when engaging people that look or feel or think differently?!
I don’t see how it is possible in this day and age that people are still being scared of homosexuals. I don’t see why men and women are not being rewarded similarly for the same job. I don’t see why we talk differently to the people that clean our desks then to the one that pays our salary. I don’t see why people need to act differently towards people that have a different color on their skin then they do. I find it fascinating by the way, aren’t we a beautiful race with all these different tones?
I don’t see how it is possible in this day and age that kids in schools are still being bullied. Why have we still not been able to teach a new generation that you don’t have to put down your peers so you won’t look so bad yourself.
My oldest girl has, once again, been rejected by her entire group of peers. Why? She doesn’t have a clue. I do. She is smart. One of the girls was giving her a really hard time completing an assignment they had to finish together. She rejected all the suggestions my daughter made. One day my girl had enough. She remained really calm and told this girl all the effort she had put in, all the suggestions she had made and presented her with two more options to finish the assignment together, both were again being rejected without reason, so my daughter said: Well, then I will finish it by myself. The teacher praised her for the way she handled it and I think this was the reason for this other girl to gather her friends to make my girls life miserable again.
Because we still haven’t learned the next generation that making someone look bad, does not make you a better person, it only makes you appear better, for a little while, if your lucky.
My youngest daughter is being friends with a small boy who has been diagnosed with ADHD. And if this wasn’t bad enough already, he also has a skin-condition. Most kids find this to be a good reason not to play with that boy. My girl is sometimes being bullied for being friends with this kid. It needs no explaining that this little boy has few other friends besides my girl and has a lot of frustrations inside his body about the way he is treated by his peers.
Why have we still not been able to teach a new generation that you don’t have to put down your peers so you won’t look so bad yourself.
Shall we teach them compassion, instead of hate?
My kids are just seeking some happiness for their lives, just like yours.
My kids are just trying to avoid suffering, just like yours.
My kids are just seeking to fill their needs, just like yours.
My kids are learning about life, just like yours.
