Dear Custom Essay Paper, I am sorry that you have had this experience. However, I cannot recreate it from this end. I can see the article that is posted there, and don't understand why you cannot see it.
So I will post it here for you to see!
What kind of world would it be if we all watched out for each other’s well-being!
I started thinking about this because of the increase of people looking to demean others. Why is it that anyone needs to put anybody else down? I came up with two reasons. First, people that are angry are just looking for a place to express that anger. The second reason, and I think the main one, is that abusive people often don’t feel good about themselves. They feel inferior and are negative toward others trying to convince themselves that they are better than the person they are putting down.
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that just because someone is ‘successful’ doesn’t mean that they are happy. When one does not feel their own strength they will belittle others to pretend they are better. Real strength is when you feel equal with everyone and you encourage others, and are okay with their success.
We’ve all gossiped and have said negative things about people because we want to feel better about ourselves. No one is exempt from having done that. If we can own up to having done so, it will be easier to deal with making the changes that need to happen.
Now that this negative attitude is out of the shadows it’s time to create a new strategy to help resolve this issue. If enough people understand the underlying cause of negativity, steps will naturally be taken to make changes.
This is a movement that everyone can be involved with, even the younger generation. Here are some ideas that can be used if you see something abusive going on:
This is a suggestion I read about and thought it was worth passing along. If you see someone is talking poorly to another person you can stand between them and have a casual conversation with the person that is being abused. This can help break the energy between them and reduce the fear of the person being attacked. But be careful, safety first, don’t stand between two people arguing.
Another idea if the situation calls for it, is to say something to the abuser. I encourage you do it in a gentle and conscious way. You don’t want to do to them what they are doing—so be kind. Realize the person who is being harsh is likely suffering and also may have been bullied. Be calm. Simple comments often work the best and you may find the right words come easier in the moment.
I do have some suggestions that can be said that may help shift the focus back to the abusive person. You can say something like:
“Are you having a bad day?”
“Would you want someone to treat your mother, father or sibling that way?”
“I don’t see why you think something is wrong with that person.”
If you feel this article can be of benefit to others, please pass it around or use your own words on social media to get this message to everyone you can. Together we are making a difference.
Here is a thought to meditate on:
Now that we are watching out for each other’s wellbeing, isn’t this world an incredible place to live!
