After looking at a short, humorous video on Facebook, I was inspired to write this article. The video was meant to induce laughter, but at the core of its contents, there lies a very valuable and factual life lesson.
In the video, a male dwarf in a shopping mall prepares to approach a female dwarf with flowers in his hands. But the female dwarf quickly spurns him and walks away. The male dwarf didn’t stand there looking embarrassed. He quickly walked over to the tall, beautiful young woman standing a few feet away, jumped on a bench and handed her the flowers.
The beautiful young woman accepted with gleeful eyes, kissed him, lifted him up and walked out the door with the dwarf in her arms. I wrote this comment under the video:
This is a real lesson for life. A person of lesser standing may dis you but a superior person is standing just a few feet away ready to “lift you up”. Don’t stay stuck and hurt, “look further”. No offense to anyone.
Have you ever heard someone insult another person without a proper cause? This is a sign of inferiority. And this person thinks that by insulting that other person, they will somehow cover their own faults. But they are wrong.
On many occasions, I’ve noticed that people talk about themselves. When they call another person, dumb, beautiful, stupid, extremely intelligent…most of the time, they are referring to themselves and these qualities are found within them. How true are Jesus’ words then, and how remarkable, “first remove the plank from your own eye and then you will see better to remove the speck from your brother’s eye”. And “judge not for how you judge so you shall be judged”.
Even in dating, when someone rejects another person as a mate, it may be a sign of inferiority. And that person rejected should look for “superior persons”. A person, either man or woman, with serious money woes, for example, may search for someone financially secure. Whereas for a financially independent person, this factor wouldn’t matter so much.
Throughout my life, I’ve noticed that I never felt the need to down-talk anyone or hurt anyone’s feelings. That may be because of my physical and mental superiority.
On the other hand, many people have pounced on the slightest opportunity to say mean things about me. When I examine it carefully, I see that these lowlifes are looking for a way to cover up their own insecurities. I just have to sit back and let karma hit them.
We are all free to choose the right or the wrong path in life. We could choose to be blessings to the lives of people. Or we could choose to bring our own selves down by saying and doing mean things to others. Superior and beautiful people aim to uplift, help and strengthen others. Inferior and ugly people aim to destabilize, hurt and degrade others.
