DISCLAIMER – Hey guys! I actually wrote this as a guest post for my awesome friend Sera @avocadothoughts but I thought the meaning of it was pretty cool so I thought I’d post it here too!
-If everyone spoke their mind, would the world be a better place?
Now – first of all, I’d like to start off by saying this topic is VERY subjective. I mean, nowadays, literally ANYBODY can be affected by literally ANY little thing.
Obviously sometimes it’s completely rational and deserved but for the most part, the new generations have just grown up ultra insecure and problematic. And yes, I know I am a part of this generation. And because of that, I can sincerely vouch for the fact that although we are unable to hear most things, it certainly doesn’t mean that we’re afraid to dole it out.
I mean, I can only tell from personal experience but people are mean 100%, but if you look at it, you’d see that as much as you’d like to not hear these things that people say or as much as you may not agree with everyone’s opinion, they are a big part of society today. You can’t go around and not be aware of the different viewpoints accessible in the world. It’s only fair that everyone has the right to say what they want (so long as it’s not EXTREMELY radical might I add)
Its funny how people can go through life and not even open themselves up to the possibility of somebody being different, Seeing somebody that’s not like them and because of that, discriminating, feeling uncomfortable or just not be able to have a simple conversation. I feel like if we started educating from young, taught kids that it’s okay to be different, to speak their minds, to know that their voice is worthy of being heard – the world would be SUCH a different place that it is in today and I feel like that REALLY needs to be taken into account for the next generation of future kids and adults alike. We need to know that we are always heard.
However despite this, I do ultimately believe that if we spoke our minds, the world would NOT be a better place. People would use it as an excuse to say the stupid, inconsiderate, annoying things that quite frankly, the world would NOT benefit from at all. Everyone has silly thoughts at silly moments and if we spoke them out loud, who knows what damage they can cause. Everything needs to be thought through before said. Everyone’s needs to stop and take that extra glance and really evaluate what they’re saying before they say it.
So I believe that personally, if you’ve got nothing nice to say, don’t say it. And if it can’t be fixed/ sorted in 5 seconds – DEFINITELY don’t say it.
What do you guys think? lemme know down below!
