People are getting funnier by the day. Honestly, any day now people will stop telling jokes to each other and just describe how their day went and others will crack up laughing.
I could be wrong but I guess this is directed at me. No names and very vague, but let`s face it…I fit the description to the T. Or N. Or whatever.
Faculty is a funny place. You get all kinds of people wanting to be all kinds of things, carrying with them images of success and triumph. Idealists. The flowers. Who walk around with their flower-heads raised up high but as soon as wind hits them they bow and break. And then they lie on the ground, crying “Woe is me!” It`s funny how people ignore the criticisms, not wanting to learn anything from them and always making an excuse for their own actions. No matter how silly or unjustifed they might be.
Another site I would like to submit into evidence and that is one of the famous Rozina blogs. Pay attention to the comment written by Pavle in which I am named heartless and plain cruel.
The question that is posing is whether or not should people be reminded of their own mistakes? Should an opinion clash with another opinion? Or should all opinions be equally respected, no matter the quality of them? And should everybody just let everything fly and not offer an ounce of critical thought?
It seems to me that the phenomenon is a typical Slovene characteristic. We always hated the ones that offered new point of views and constructive criticism. Always. We are the sheep. We bee with the others and when people call us sheep we are offended and make up thousand of reasons why we are like that and why is that good.
Keeping my mouth shut was never one of my traits. I was always the mouth of the group. At one point I feared that is the sole reason people are avoiding me and looking at me strangely. I felt that sheep is the way to be and I tried to demean myself, trying to keep flying under the radar and not stand out. I believe this is what you call the tyranny of majority. Good ole Alexis.
The thing that currently bothers me the most is that some of my classmates show no spine. No spine whatsoever. Expressing your own opinion is like running them over with a steam roller. They close up like a sea-clam and just mutter under their breath. Victimising themselves. Which again takes them on a negative curve, bringing them even lower. And instead of learning something new (like I usually do when someone explains something to me), they change focus through victimisation and demonize the constructive criticism, thinking everybody are out to get them.
Does this mean that I will stop correcting their errors, making constructive criticism and showing them that eventhough their mommies told them they are gods?
Hell no. Let the sissies burn.
