There’s always an awkward pause when we always try to put things in front or introduce and yes that’s me. Having said that I was born in a family with mixed ethnicity my father was from India and my mother is from Srilanka and me born in this kingdom of BAHRAIN.
“I come from a country where anger wasn’t a luxury that you had if you were a critic, author, writer, even a student, etc. “It’s easy to be angry in a society where your government is benign in its actions towards you. So that’s a great tool that you have. But if you come from a country where you grew up in a world where people weren’t free to express themselves, you’re generally a lot more reserved with how you dish out that anger. Because anger will be met with anger.”
The message is that people need to shed their fear of condemnation and admit they have prejudices and might be wrong.
“I’m trying to be a proxy for people to understand that we all contain biases and ideas of what other people are. “I like to share that vulnerability and say, ’I’m not gonna lie, I also have this belief that some people views tied to some ideas that I don’t agree with. And the truth is everywhere else in the world, it’s that way.
There’s a freedom that comes from exposing all of your bits. Exposing your good bits, and your bad bits, exposing your scars. Because you stop being self-conscious. You realize a lot of the time we’re ashamed of things we shouldn’t be ashamed of, just because we live in a shaming society. If you’re poor, you don’t have to be ashamed of that. If someone didn’t find love and not married, you don’t have to be ashamed of that, etc... you know the drill it goes on forever.
We have lots of time to be angry when we’re going to be harassed and oppressed and the government’s not going to see this anger right now, so what is the point of it? What is the point of existing in a feeling that does not move you forward? Because now what’s happening is you’re stewing in your anger and resentment and bitterness, but the system you’re trying to go up against doesn’t feel any of that. It doesn’t even know. So, you’re wasting that energy.”
I believe if we fail at the very achievable thing, that would break our heart and if you live your life by how other people see your life then you’re in trouble. You have to live life as you see it
One of the biggest things I’ve come to know is I didn’t realize how entrenched people were in their views or beliefs. But not all are like that Everyone always learns something new. They start off thinking one thing and by the end of the 30 minutes they go: ‘You know what, thanks man, I didn’t think like that.’ So I learned people are open to change their minds. But for the people are most part angrily entrenched in their views, and that’s that.”
Well, here’s the thing. Most of us are just trying to do the right thing according to our point of view. Oftentimes we don’t work on winning each other over, we focus on just being right, or being angry. That righteous anger and if I have an opportunity to teach you that, would I rather take that, or would I rather take the opportunity to scold and shame you for what you don’t know? I feel like, if you’re willing, I have an opportunity to change you and learn from you, and you can learn from me.
Last but not the least, which country do you think I am referring to?
