I started this blog for a number of reasons, one of them was because i liked the idea of reflecting and writing ideas and sharing them with people from all over the world. Just connecting i suppose
Nobody knows who you are, or whee you’re from, there’s something seductive about expressing oneself to an anonymous audience, knowing that they can’t judge you.
This got me thinking more, about how we judge others, I was sitting in a class today about Myths and Folktales, (now the first thing someone may think is why would anyone take a class about Myths and Folktales, I enjoy this topic and it so happens to be compulsory for my degree) we analysed a story about a jackal as a judge.
The story itself dealt with many other themes, but I began to notice the people in my class, truly observe them. We all look different and dress differently, we all are trying to be a someone in this world. And yet it was a simple comment made by the guy next to me that brought me swiftly out of this zoned out haze.
"Haha, she thinks she’s so intelligent, gosh".
We’ve all done it, we’ve been in a class or sat with someone and thought how absolutely irritating they are, often we take this further by attacking them, insulting them behind their back etc. I’m not a psychologist and since I only did one year of sociology I can’t claim to know much about society or people, but I do think that this has some kind of deeper issue, the anger we feel for someone who we simply don’t get along with.
Finally, leading me to my conclusion, (sort of). I have many questions on my mind, many thoughts and ideas, the above was simply a thought I had wanted to get out that type of thing, and so after reading all that (thanks for making it through all of that ) I’ve decided that, I will be doing more posts as much as possible. Alright you’re free to say this is dumb
