I get asked stupid questions
Question: Why do you complain?
About X being bad
When Y is also bad
Answer: DUH? Because X is bad
And it is bad no matter if Y is bad or good!!
Question: So why don’t you talk about Y being bad
Answer: I do talk about Y being bad
Question: So why not lets focus on Y alone?
Answer: DUH coz X is bad, maybe badder
Question: But Y is bad isn’t it?
Answer: Yes it is. But X is bad too
Question: But if Y is bad, why focus on X
Answer: (Really I want to tell him to go hang himself but I refrain). Dude, X is bad, Y is bad. Why you ignoring X and focusing on Y?
Because you belong to the X group right?
And you rather point fingers at all groups except yours.
You rather look outwards than in.
Let us work on X and Y. Can you do that?
Because changing X means changing your self
Means letting go of beliefs that you and your wife and your kids and your friends and your grandparents and your parents and their grandparents and their friends and their relatives and your relatives hold so dear to their hearts.
It means looking into your heart and your life and your community and feeling a deep deep deep sense of shame and guilt.
Now why on earth would you want to do that?
You would rather focus on Y wont you?
So typical, its no surprise at all
Wouldn’t it be great if you did surprise me?
