Today’s topic is about breaking the stereotype in a family life situation,

 

Sunday mornings means I go to church!

Firstly to make it clear, I do like going for mass.

Also, it’s one time of the week when I get to hear my favorite choir sing and that’s awesome.

Today’s sermon gave me an idea which I had to convert into a blog post.

The thought is about 90% of us being part of a stereotype. When given a situation, 90% of us would always see just one side of it.

For me to convince you about being part of a stereotype, let’s look at a situation.

Situation:

There are 4 people in the family. The first person “A” enters home with an empty bottle. That person throws the bottle on the floor and then proceeds to hit one of the family member “B”.

There’s “C” who is reading the newspaper and is scared to interfere.

The last person “D” is engrossed using the smartphone and is scared to react.

 

So what did you imagine?

 

Did you imagine a drunk father entering the house post his drinking session and hitting the wife while the kids just watched and were scared to react?

It’s not wrong to think like that. I did that too.

Although, why couldn’t it be the elder sister entering home and raising her hand on the younger brother while the old parents watched because they were too weak to react?

It’s because we as a society show domestic and physical abuse only through the eyes of a drunk man!

To conclude, this topic did ring some bells and got me thinking about how we react to certain situations unknowingly.

We just don’t see the whole picture.We judge directly without proper research.

 

Either you can share my thinking or can question my thoughts. I’d love to hear your views on this topic.

Happy Sunday!

Spread the love...

My blogs – “One Mind, A Million Thoughts” and “One Sun, Many Rays” now are merged together as one blog!

3 years and 3 months ago, I began blogging not knowing where this journey will lead me on to.

Nearly 375 posts later, I not only knew what I like in this Blog world but also got better in many aspects of life for which I’m thankful.

Post my birthday 3 weeks ago, I finally decided to go live and get my own self hosted website for my blog.

The idea of going live was planned in April 2016. After procrastinating for almost a whole year, I finally decided to go ahead with this pending dream of mine.

Anyway, here’s my blog page which houses posts from both; Blogger and WordPress!

I have them listed as per different categories. Forgive me if you find few faults as migrations are messy and they always leave some marks! Do point them out to me and I’ll be happy to get them changed.

I also have my Facebook, Zomato and Instagram buttons on the bottom of the web-page.You can follow me on these accounts and be part of my journey.

And finally, I’d like to thank a lot of people who made sure this blog web-page sees the light of the day.

My Parents of course! They’re my strength. They’re my motivation.

My friend Dean Silveira for the logo which is amazing and just like I wanted it to be. Do check out his work here – Dean Bing Designs

To Kevin Sequeira for helping me create this website from scratch with all the unnecessary changes and making sure this runs smoothly and sets sail!

To many of my blogger friends who too started their own website. It did help me take that step finally.

 

Lastly, a heads up to you guys.

I’ll be participating in the A-Z challenge 2017 where everyday (except Sunday) I’ll be writing a post on each letter starting from A to Z. My theme this year too will be weird words! Do check out my posts on this theme from previous years too! It’s under the category “Collections”.

Au revoir!
