Have you ever watched the film Midnight in Paris? The film isn’t so much about the city as it is about our infatuation with it. Woody Allen wonders why strolling through the streets of Paris seems more potent than dreaming about it. Our fascination with historical European sites isn’t limited to historical European landmarks. In conclusion, we see the world through a distorted lens. No, there is a slew of other causes – we’re all too easily influenced.
“What’s something we need to stop normalizing?” Redditor u/Buttercuppy44 asked other users last week. And it turned out to be a conversation we desperately needed to have. People immediately responded with a slew of precise and proper instances.
People are being fired for things that happened more than a decade ago. Allow someone to grow if they have shown progress during that period.
They are bringing a sick child to work. People are sometimes rewarded for this, but in reality, they are putting others at risk of being ill as well, and in the end, it costs the firm more than if they had just stayed at home.
We are ignoring retail and food, service employees. We work hard all day, deal with the worst clients imaginable, and are underpaid to support our families, yet we do it nonetheless. For a fraction of what it’s worth.
That if you work hard enough, all is achievable. Don’t get me wrong: there’s a lot that can be done, but not everything. Variables outside of our control determine our success. The best we can do is give it our all and be satisfied with the results.
The notion that being a jerk is an indicator of intellect. Lice are rarely intelligent. There are no Sheldon Cooper, Rick Sanchez, Hannibal Lecter, or Dr. House.
Being nasty and arrogant, in my experience, is a sign of ignorance, not intellect.
We have a powerful point of view about everything.
It’s perfectly OK to browse the internet and think to yourself, “I don’t have to worry about this.”
It uses mental illness as a justification. I have a number of them, and it isn’t very easy for me. However, I seek expert assistance and confront the problem head-on. It’s demotivating to see frequent posts about individuals having this condition or that disorder and why it’s OK to act a particular way. Awareness is essential, but hundreds of posts a day about having a borderline personality disorder or bipolar disease and why it’s OK to be an a-hole isn’t… Would you please get treatment if you are suffering from these issues?
Married couples who dislike each other. It’s dumb, dandy to normalize abusive and poisonous components in marriage.
And also, you’re carrying an unhealthy amount of weight. I’m not talking about being in shape and making others feel self-conscious about their appearance. And, I’m not talking about making folks feel awful about gaining a few pounds. I’m a little overweight, and I’m not in great shape, but I’m reasonably healthy. Every person’s physique is unique. Healthy can refer to a variety of things.
I’m referring to the acceptance of morbidly fat people as attractive and worthy of praise. It’s particularly hazardous if youngsters regard them as role models. They’ll believe it’s OK for your body to carry so much weight around that your heart and lungs have to work extra to keep you alive. As you age and your body slows down, it will have catastrophic consequences later in life. You’ll be in danger of cardiovascular problems, you’ll most likely die young, and you’ll spend the last few years of your life bedridden while you waste away.
