I got these questions from Danielle’s blog Underland to Wonderland, where I came across a post in which she talked about the website Thought Questions and their 365 thought-provoking questions to ask yourself. My friends Katrin, Celeste and Jasmine have also been answering these questions, so be sure to go check out their blogs too!
Day 30: If you had the opportunity to get a message across to a large group of people, what would your message be?
That all people are equal and deserve the same measures of love and respect. Don’t judge. Treat others as you wish to be treated, and always, always love. I detest people who degrade others for being different–of a different culture, perhaps disabled in some way, whatever. It’s even worse if there’s a high level of ignorance behind the statement–for example, making fun of someone with a mental disability because they struggle to communicate at work.
I openly admit that I often fail to act with love toward the people around me. It’s hard on days when you’re not feeling patient or someone just irritates you from the get-go. But it’s a practice that gets easier the more you do it.
Beautifully said! Could not have said it any better. :)
I love this! I’m a big believer in loving everyone. There is way too much judgment in the world!
You took my thoughts! What am I going to post now? ;). I agree wholeheartedly, it’s not always easy, but just don’t judge.
LOL great minds think alike!
Awesome! Could not have said it better myself!
Hmm…i like your answer. I don’t really like public speaking but if I had to share something I would talk about domestic emotional and verbal abuse. It’s something I had to deal with for half of my life and it really messes with your head and how you see yourself and other people. People do need to learn how to deal with it and how not to be a victim of it. No one should allow others to treat them that way. It took me a long time to develop the courage to put my foot down and say no more, I am better than that. I know better than that.
I’m really sorry you had to deal with that and for so long! It really does warp your perception of the world. But it sounds like you’re definitely much stronger now!
