Really????

BULLSHIT!

What makes us special is not how we are treated by others. We are special because we are. Period.

Folks, it’s time to stop letting others tell us what we’re worth.  We can accept genuine and factual assessments of our skills, talents, and – yes – our behavior, but none of that – positive or negative – has any bearing on our value as people.  We can improve our skills, hone our talents, and become nicer; we can ignore our gifts and wallow in unhealthy habits; but, we can’t stop being people and that simple fact means we are all equally valuable.  The playing field is level. Don’t listen to anyone who would try to tell you anything to the contrary.

If you want to improve your golf score, learn to bake perfect French macarons, or call your old momma more often, do it.  It’s your choice and your ability to improve things about you; however, it will not, in the overall scheme of humanity, make you worth more than the dude who can’t balance his checkbook.  If you think it does, you are missing what it means to be human.  That we are all equally worthy of a place on this planet does not devalue any individual; it does not diminish any one of us; it is the familial tie that makes us, well, us.

Our value is not debatable; it exists because we do. Don’t let anyone try to talk you out of that certainty.  Even though they, by definition, are valuable as people, the opinions expressed by some misguided ones are not! That’s not just my opinion, either, that’s just a fact.

How’s that make you feel?  I feel good.
