Rise Above Prejudices


Some people would always worry about what others think of them, and unfortunately I'm one of them.

I do care about my image in the society and among fellow friends. I do get distressed and nervous in embarrassing situations. I do care about others' perception even after knowing the fact that there would always be at least 4 people around me. One who will always criticize, one who will always mock at me, one who'll bitch about me and the last one is who spreads rumors no matter how sincere, helpful and friendly I become.

But the point is who is to be blamed for this? The people who make false judgments about you or you yourself, who is getting affected by their thinking?
I think both of the them are equally the partakers of being blamed. It's quite an irony that me who is the most worried one about other people's reaction is saying you to not get affected by what they say. Isn't it?

But believe me, I'm subduing this weakness of mine and those who are in the same boat should improve themselves too. If you earnestly believe in something or want to do something sincerely and passionately that you like the most then you shouldn't stop yourself from doing it and just go for it without paying any heed to what others have to say about it or how would they react.

Because after all it's your life not theirs, you should be the boss of your life and the decisions that you make, and not anyone else, not even your best  friends or guardians. Although sometimes, or rather most of the times having criticizers near you prove to be very beneficial like a blessing in disguise since they let you discover yourself and emerge with zeal to prove them wrong and also improving in certain aspects at the same time.

Speaking of the former ones, that is the people who make preconceived ideas about others on the basis of their clothes or their family background or gender or perhaps, their race. In our daily lives, we come across many victims of prejudices be they the single mothers or the homosexuals or the girls wearing short dresses or the HIV patients and the list won't end. Apparently, prejudice and discrimination are two different things. But the latter is the aftermath of the former.

We all must have seen or heard of the incidents of discriminating single mothers by the conservative relatives, homosexuals being discriminated by their friends, HIV patients by their office staff and girls wearing short dresses at times being blamed for the crimes against women.

Judging anyone on these basis, making them the butt of ridicule and inequity, discriminates them from the society that doesn't make any sense.
I mean if a child with completely different temperament and choices is born in your family would you just discriminate him/her from your family? No, right? Then how could you discriminate your fellow human beings? Are you right in doing so? After all, we all are the children of one God. Everyone is a part of your family, just start considering them one. Stop being a stereotype, rise above prejudices.

Live and let live, stop judging the book by its cover!

  1. True, these days we are judgemental to anything and everything. Before judging anyone and commenting on her/him one should try to put the feet in the same shoes... only then it makes sense.

    Unfortunately we, women are more prone to such judgements... :-(

    A very well-penned article...

  2. Funny I had a similar chat with husband in morning. And here I shall quote him, " why are you bothered so much by people's comments, people have not even spared Obama from their judgments then who are you" and I honestly found this hilariously correct!

  7. "We all are the children of one God" ~ So rightly said Deeshani. A wonderful post, indeed.
    You know there was a time when I used to be really upset when people judged or criticized me. It was long after that I realized that it is my life and I should live it the way I want. People only see the surface and make jokes or gossips about a person, without knowing the entire story. We cannot change the world but we can change ourselves. We should try to follow the good old adage "Live and let live." :)
