One day you will be the less fortunate in the room,
Whether you or one of your dearest people.
You will be the weakest among the stronger
The poorest among the wealthier
The oldest among younger people
One day, you will be the one mocked, excluded, and fought
You will be the black sheep, the most hated in the room
One day you will be the one belittled and manipulated
You will be the one played and dumped
One day you will be persecuted for just being you, for speaking up
One day you will be the one vulnerable and defenseless
One day you will be the one losing
The one underestimated and not appreciated,
One day you will be the one bullied,
The one ignored, neglected, and hurt
One day you will be the one grieving and suffering
One day you will be the one harshly judged,
Exiled, and maybe tortured
You will be the one lonely, depressed, and maybe having suicidal thoughts.
You will be called the weirdest because no one is willing to understand you or even try to
When that day comes, imagine the audience and surroundings are similar to your current version.
Are you smiling?
I don’t think so.
Now you might feel invincible, you have nothing to lose, thinking constantly “I will never be them” “I’m different” “I’m smarter” “I’m stronger”,
But when that day comes, when you or your loved ones are literally “them”,
You will pray for decent human beings, for people who don’t resemble you in any way,
For people who speak up and fight against injustice and bias,
People who will choose to stand out from the crowd
To stand up for what is right, for humanity, compassion, and dignity even if they will stand alone.
And these people are so far from your current version!
Therefore, think about that day, think about your feelings during these tough moments, and tell me which person you want to see. Which person do you want your loved ones to see?
Afterward, I want you to look into the mirror now, look closely and deeply, and tell me which person you see.
Consequently, it’s up to you to decide which person the people will see on their worst day.
In turn, this will affect whom you will see when your worst day will eventually come.
Thank you for reading. Please share your thoughts regarding this matter, tell me which audience you often experienced and which audience you were often?
I guess in a way or another, we all experience these kind of days and I’m trying my best to be my best always: with me and with the others…because we never know what tomorrow will bring! Beautifully written as always dear Koko!
Thank you dear for reading and for your interaction 😊at least you are doing your best, many people don’t even realize there is a problem in their behavior and therefore they will never improve…These people are the reason why this world is very ugly! Appreciate your kindness and time as always 🤗🧸💕
I have read this post 5 or 6 times. I read it the day you posted it. But I felt uncomfortable reading it. So, I thought I would read it again as I thought that maybe I am not in a good state of mind to read at this time.
But honestly, each time I read it I felt uncomfortable. I am feeling like you have written this with pain in your heart and so that’s why it is heavy on me. I haven’t even read it fully, just skimmed it. It is heavy for me to read.
Sorry to hear it made you feel this way, wasn’t my intention. I just wanted to tell people to put themselves in others shoes, because one day will come and they will be in the same position and then they will need compassion and not bullying…Yes it feels so bad when you are the less fortunate in the room and your audience is a bad one.
Appreciate you reading and commenting despite and sorry again for triggering any bad feelings.
You don’t have to be sorry dear. And it didn’t triggered anything but was heavy for me to read. Yes, I understood your intention behind the post. But somehow, when I read, I connect to the emotions behind. So that’s why I felt like this. To me, it conveyed pain, frustration and a sense of uneasiness.
Well just know that I felt this and much more at some point. I felt awful to the extent that this post is very nice and very decent. 🙏🏻😊
Like Ribana began, one way or another we all come through this phases. And the future awaits one of these situation and we must cross it. Like I use to kid old people old deaf and lazy, I’m going to be old one day too and I’m going to be lazy maybe deaf maybe even blind.. and that is the life, we experience all of this and we learn from all of it. What’s the point in getting old experiencing nothing? We are not a machine. We are humans and we will gro through all of this and maybe write one day if we can or die with all the memories.
Thank you dear Simon for your time and interaction and very happy to see you here 😊I hope all your days will be filled with good memories and I’m sure that you will be doing the right thing when you have the chance 💕🙏
