All People Are Created Equal
Monday, December 24, 2018
Red and Yellow, Black and White, we're all precious in God's sight. It doesn't matter, fat or thin, it matters what resides within. How we treat ourselves and others is what will make our life meaningful and healthy. Listening to what another person has to say is a high form of respect.
In my family, I am looked down on. My political views are very different from my Conservative Christian family, and I divorced and remarried. No one would come right out and say that I am less than, but I'm reminded of a phrase that comes from a book:
"All animals are created equal. Some are more equal than others." is a phrase taken from George Orwell's book Animal House. It is a challenge to hold my head high when I know that people are looking down at me. I am learning to stick up for myself and respect myself in order to gain the respect of those around me.
My Christmas gift to myself this year is RESPECT and kindness to myself and others!
