I bestow upon you a healing poem to think to yourself whenever someone is bullying you. Hopefully it will help you calm down and understand that the person who is trying to demean you is the one who is wrong. Don't raise your tone and maintain your dignified position. We're going through some desperate times where valuable personality traits have been tossed aside by the media as it encourages people to dehumanize themselves. Humanity is constantly frowned upon and the media perpetuates hateful, shallow, stereotypical characters for others to model themselves after. The media tells us that in order to become equal and tolerant we need to mock everyone equally but the problem is that we end up separating people into other cliques while others become completely left out and turned into scapegoats. We need to stop trying so hard to be funny because not everyone was born to be an entertainer. We were all however born human and two things we can all agree that we can do are thinking and feeling. For some time now we've left others impose on us how we should think and how we should feel about ourselves when compared to the standard imposed by society. We need to stop following and listening to the mean words directed at our direction by the media, magazine covers, articles which preach those ideals while belittleling and acusing you for feeling the way you feel, other people who want to fit the mould and replicate and perpetuate a certain type of behaviour (boastful, nascisistic, childish, load, obnoxious). You need to understand that you feel and look the way you look because that's who you are and the only one responsible for your actions is yourself. Society is dehumanizing people who fit the mould to function as a lawyer only when they're defending their actions, and to act as both judge and prosecutor when it comes to others. Those who do not fit the ideal follow the example while hating themseves for not being as beautiful, inteligent, succesful or famous as their idol. A way to feel important is by chosing a scapegoat who they believe is inferior to them because that person fits a certain stereotype they were taught to dislike. The scapegoat becomes his own prosecutor when this abuse comes from all directions: real world or media. You need a lawyer too, but everyone is to busy lawyering themselves to care about injustice. You need to be your own lawyer and if you cannot voice your defence in a calm, respectful tone because they're too busy mocking you or trying to shut you up simply ignore them: you're better off without their opinion. You must never stop being your own lawyer: you're human and you make mistakes but if that mistake doesn't endanger your humanity you don't need to explain your choices. If you also enjoy lowbrow things I invite you to read a particularly rude poem I wrote about the rude behaviour people try to shove down our throats to ensure a peaceful existance for all except the ones who need it the most: An asshole is an asshole even if it's covered with expensive things. An asshole is an asshole: chosing rude jesters over soft spoken kings An asshole is an asshole when only about his victories he sings An asshole is an asshole he won't allow innocent to spread their wings An asshole is an asshole (both genders) and says his shit never stinks when he talks before he thinks cause he mocks and later winks since his ego never shrinks. An asshole is an asshole and that's all he'll ever be He pokes fun at victims, weaklings, races, an amputee Shapes, sizes, faces, gender claiming that it's equally Defend yourself and he won't allow you to dissagree Don't talk to him about common sense or equality It's much too late for he has lost all his humanity. Don't reproduce or perpetuate such behaviors because you're still human no matter how much they try to put you down: you must always get up. The other people who reject you,bully you, ostracize you for no reason are the ones who have lost their humanity and who are wrong. You need to forgive and forget about what they say or what you think they say because no matter how hopeless it may seem, it is not your fault! What you're going through now is not your fault! The truth is that the human race goes through this neverending process where because of a sudden change in our history the values of a community become reversed and this mostly takes place during a war, crisis or cultural movement. When Pop Culture replaced the traits heroes and heroines with traits they thought would sell a product we have all been punished for no reason. The ones who were punished the most are the idols (although their lifestyle is different than yours and they preach a certain type of behaviour they live their lives being judged for their actions as much as you are) and other human beings like yourself who can't find any pleasure in hating another person. The one thing our society is lacking right now is communication. Information travels faster than ever before but we embrace the wrong one and we forget to listen to those who should be the most important to us. Other times we are cut off completely or ignored by the ones we love so we look up to the wrong people and it seems less painful because atleast those people can't hurt us in person. Generation after generation have relied on television to be our babysitters and now we're paying the price for that mistake : we're not human anymore. The internet tried to bring us closer in a community but only forces us into passivity and loneliness . We're all connected,some have have thousands of friends they never talk to, others have a few good ones they have nothing to talk about with, and now we are left with nothing to amuse us. The internet makes entertainment cheap to produce, easier to distribute,caters to a diverse audience and is free of charge but it also lowers the bar of what people consider a good joke . The internet also gives us the chance to be able to talk to like-minded people who can encourage us and help us understand that no matter how lonely and frustrated the bullies may get. YOU WILL NEVER BE ALONE because you're the only one who still surrounds himself with REAL human beings. They are real human beings not because they are next to you but because they still function as human beings: they think about you and they can still feel something for another human being even if they've never met in person. Apreciate those who demonstrate their true value through their thoughtfulness and sensitivity and not those who reject or demean others regardless how important they'd like you to think they are.
