Sometimes we find ourselves talking about a particular person or group in ways that are condescending.
We settle to talk about someone’s physique, the funny ways their legs move while they walk… How big their head is, big lips, flat ass, etc.
We sometimes talk about how we detest some people calling us over the phone, how someone’s mouth or body odour can be discomforting… etc.
Yesterday I was discussing with a friend about a group of male friends. We spoke about how disrespectful these guys are and lots more. In the process, I made a very dissatisfying comment. I said for anything in the world I wouldn’t date any of them.
After that conversation, I got thinking… What about me? is there not someone out there who can say the same about me?
Do you know that the way we avoid a person, that’s the same way another person avoids us? The phone calls you frown at, has it ever occurred to you that someone else hates to receive your call?
Wonder how many people laugh at the mere thought of your nose? Does your breath smell fresh always?
In ridiculing people we never consider ourselves to see if we fit into those same shoes. Ask yourself this minute, “What about me?”. Remember! The sun doesn’t shine on only a particular group of people! There must be something you have, be it your body organs or trait or something you do that someone else detests. You should check you out more often.
