We continually evolve. We live in the world where change is the only thing that is constant. The emergence of the technology has drastically affected the way people connect and communicate with one another. We had embraced diversity at the same time we opened a place where people freely judge everything, creating stereotypes that slowly divide us.
Through the years, we have been branded by our religious views, gender preference, skin color and body shape. We create standards for each other to be socially acceptable. We live every day to see how people act and live their own lives followed by our so-called “comment” that defines an individual from our own point of view. Yes, we are entitled to have our own perspective and opinions but we also should know when it is enough, when we should stop and when we should act.
Aren’t we all entitled to define who we really are? Do we have to abide by what the society wants? Don’t we have the right to be who we want to be and how we want to live our own lives? Let me tell you something.
Your religion doesn’t define who you are.
Your gender preference doesn’t reflect your personality.
Your skin color doesn’t make you superior or inferior from the other.
Your body shape doesn’t make you less of anything.
We had created barriers that prevent us from understanding the uniqueness of each individual. Let us break free from the stigma that holds us back from doing what we really want. We should keep in mind what really matters, it is how we act and treat other people.
Create your own description of yourself. No matter how people perceive you, always remember that you know yourself better than them. Let your goal be to understand instead to criticize. Build yourself to be a better version for your own good and the good of the people around you.
