Our need of applying Adjectives

The need to identify and associate oneself with adjectives builds up invisible walls… one would not know when they got themselves confined and are now miles away from the truth…
People are connecting to only what they know or able to measure… If they don’t or could not, they get offended… For example if one says he is a manager, everybody can figure out his role, like he must be managing something and can easily figure out the respect a manager deserves or hope for... But if one says, he is happy, then everybody finds him crazy… because happiness is something momentary, and nobody expects it to be a stable state. If you work you must have a title which should keep changing every year to show your growth. Housewife sounds degrading so change it to a homemaker. Does changing the title changes the job she does or the dedication she puts in her work. But to change how people look at you, needs changing yourself by adding adjectives. That’s the way to build your confidence in a society, one is trying to prove to… The more adjectives you have, the more you would need to prove to…
Oh good you are working for women, or for specific kind of patients. But in that process of creating awareness for the unattended issues, one unknowingly enters into the buildings of closed walls who then does not let you know/hear truth screaming outside. The NGO who works for birds does not care if a cow dies unattended, and the people who save girl child feels proud if to be parents are wishing for a girl child. How come wishing for a girl child becomes right, when wishing for a boy child is wrong.
From ones’ personal to professional details, everything needs adjectives so that our people can relate to us, can connect to us, but in the process we are loosing our senses to see and feel the very obvious. We think we are working for our freedom but we are not. Freedom is liberating, it needs dropping adjectives, unlearning the years of conditionings and building bridges and sharing what one has gained…
