To Those Who Feel Superior to Others

To Those Who Feel Superior to Others,
 
What right do you have to judge a person as inferior? I would like to know how you came to the conclusion that it is your place to do so. Do you ever consider how it must feel to be chronically ill, disabled, hungry, poor, homeless, voiceless or aging?

This letter has a few words for you. You are not God, and it is not your place to wait in judgment of others. What right do you have to bask in the illusion that you are superior?

In fact, simply by judging yourself as superior, you are, in fact, demonstrating your inferiority.

You are not better than this simple letter, which chooses its battles carefully, and won’t put forth the time or energy to try and convince you otherwise.
Continue to do your superiority dance all the while showing that just by assuming you are better than, you demonstrate clearly that you are not.

I hope you find some way to conclude we are all equal, but that some just have greater challenges in life than others.

It is only then that you can truly have equality with others

Love this, I have a strong sense of this same feeling for anyone in the world who thinks they are indeed better than any other one person, in my mind they are completely wrong nor do I want to associate with them. Equality is the key to prosperity
