One thing I have never, and probably will never understand is, why do people feel the need to interfere in other peoples’ lives?
I’ve been surrounded by people that just can’t go on without pushing others down and making them feel worse about themselves, my entire life and it’s about time I said something about it.
I just don’t get it. Microaggressions, bullying, cyberbullying, anonymous hate. All these things, why do they even happen? You know something went wrong, terribly wrong when people feel the need to throw disheartening remarks and assertions at other people throughout their daily lives.
What twisted thoughts might come to one’s mind that they can’t walk down a crowded hallway – in school or anywhere, really – without pushing someone down or shoving someone against the lockers. Or shouting appalling and hurtful words at fellow humans. Or pointing out their flaws/ lack of clothing etc. Or mocking someone only because of their sexuality. Do they not realize that just by saying a simple sentence that might be a joke to to them – they may just make the other person’s day worse.
People already have too much problems and difficulties to deal with in their daily life without some random stranger making it worse by a hundred percent. These people need to realize that just because pushing other people down gives them a false sense of superiority and ascendancy, does not mean they have a right to do that. Every human has a heart of their own, they have feelings, they have their own problems, they have stuff to deal with and every human being has those moments in life where they need help from other humans – even if they don’t ask for it.
A random person walking near you on the street, a random person standing next to you in a line at McDonald’s, a random person walking beside you in the hallway in school – you never know what’s going on in their heads. They might just be having the worst day, they might be looking forward to a party later that day, they might be thinking about what to eat for lunch or they might be thinking about the stuff they’ll say to their therapist later that evening, they might be thinking about taking their own lives that night and you’ll know because then again, they’re just another person walking with their heads hung low in a crowded hallway/ street/ bus stop. But what you should know, is that even though humans are just empty bodies with some weird organs keeping them alive, they feel things. They hear, they see, they touch and they feel.
“Hey fag! You forgot to paint your nails this morning!”
“Hey fatass! Cut down on the fries a bit, yeah? You wouldn’t want them to use you as a football instead, now would you?”
“Yo slut! You forgot to put on some clothes this morning!”
“Hey whore, who’s your boyfriend this evening?”
“Oh man, I can’t tell the difference between her, and a squashed pumpkin, they look so alike!”
“Ew, why is this cocksucker sitting next to me?”
These phrases, these words; they hurt more than you think. That saying, “Stick and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me” is, tragically, false. Words do more harm than sticks and stones in my opinion. Stick and stones do physical damage, but these words, they mentally destroy a person. Boy, I’ve been there, I know. I still believe that it didn’t hurt half as much when they punched me in the gut, then it did when they told everyone I was a “filthy little bitch who thinks she’s better than everyone when in reality, her parents wish they had an abortion.”
I have only one thing to say.
Stop. Please stop.
Why does it matter if a guy likes to paint his nails, why is it a big deal if a girl has sex with more than 3 people, why do people lose their shit if a dude goes out in public wearing a skirt (HE CAN DO WHATEVER THE FUCK HE WANTS), why is it such a big deal if two guys are sexually involved with each other? How does that effect your life in any possible way? IT DOESN’T. A girl has full rights to sleep with any person she wants for as many times as she likes to, a guy has full rights to be in love with another guy, after all, isn’t it about being in love with a HUMAN and not their genitals? I have said this before, and I will say this again, and I will believe this ’til the day I die, that every single human being on this entire planet is entitled to their choices. They can do whatever they want UNLESS it’s doing harm to the planet, community or the environment. They should be able to be themselves, going out holding hands with the same sex should NOT be a big deal. “Slut” “fag” “whore” “bitch” “skank” “tranny” “duke” these kinds of words, they should not be acceptable to be spoken to fellow humans no matter what the case. ONE word can end lives, do you not realize that? A simple phrase can end a life, a simple judgement upon a person’s act or choice of lifestyle can lead that person to live the rest of their lives being scared to be themselves because OTHERS might not be okay with it.
This is ruining everything and it needs to stop. We are all humans, living in the same world, sharing the same sky, living on the same ground, breathing the same air, somethings so small such as belonging to different tribes and castes should not drift us apart and make us hate each other. This world is so big, every place, every continent, every country, every city and even every forest filled with living creatures, sent in this world as one, are supposed to live their lives as one. Religion, castes, tribes, cultures, ethnicity – these things, in fact do bring differences among humans but they are not supposed to divide us.
At the end of the day we’re all still humans, all of us are going to die someday, our bodies will turn to dust and your religion and your beliefs will not matter anymore because all there will be left of you, will be dust and bones.
So be nice, be humble, be human. Smile at strangers, give compliments, appreciate the efforts someone makes for you. Make others feel safe and content around you instead of pushing them down and make them curse their fate. Have a good day.
