"WHEN I WATCHED THE VIDEO, I heard myself saying a lot of things... I didn't know I had that much anger buried somewhere..." Thrilling!
Lately, I've been following up on this physically attractive #CeeC of #bbnaija2018 and have learned a lot more.
By now, most of us already know that regardless of how attractive we might find a male or a female (adult or child) at first glance, with time, the #attraction is sustained ONLY by how we feel about the person. And of course, feeling is relative. That's due to our default #bias as humans.
Nobody is #bad, and nobody is #good. In fact, I doubt that anyone could be said to be better without having some basis for comparisons.
However, since societies are formed by mutual #ideals, it becomes possible for us to say someone is either good or bad (according to the particular #ideologies or #society we have embraced).
In other words, you can only call/judge someone else (as) good or bad based on your #CoreValues.
Having said that, like most of us, Cee-C developed those values possibly without periodic self awareness appraisals. Her fans also supported her regardless.
But the moment she was made to watch one of her episodes, she made the comment at the beginning of this post.
At this, most of her fans also acknowledged the issue and adjusted their values while the others didn't even budge.
I believe her realization was genuine due to firsthand experiences - my opinion.
#SelfRealization is good.
#SelfAwareness is better.
#SelfAppraisal is best.
These days, the definition of #strength could be misconstrued. That notwithstanding, there's a huge difference between being #cold and being #strong. While both could be a product of the same negative experiences, one is #humane while the other is #inhumane.
Most of us have had our share of negativity served, but the ability to retain our #humanity in the face of the #inhumanity dished to us is the essence of humanity.
Nobody said it would be easy. And nobody said you can't falter once in a while. But your humanity is worth the stress of reviewing your #CircleOfInfluence.
