If you want to know…

If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals .
J.K. Rowling

 

 

 

Getting Personal…
I really enjoy this quote. Often times, many of us tend to falsely believe that those who are not at “our level” of success makes others inferior to us. This is a common misconception. The person bagging your groceries at Safeway, or the man selling food on a mobile cart, is neither inferior nor superior to us. Financial stability, a prestigious job, or expensive education doesn’t set us apart from everyone else. We all breathe, have a mother and father, and a history. Let us remember that at one point or another in our life, we had hardships and shouldn’t “look down” on others for going through their own hardships. To me, everybody has a reason as to why they act in the manner they do, or say the things that they do. Depression? Sudden loss of a family member? We musn’t judge, but rather try to understand that we often cross paths with those going through different stages in their lives that we, at one point or another, have passed.
