Humiliation Day is an important date aimed at improving society. Unfortunately, the planet is inhabited not only by kind, but also by embittered people who are used to mocking their surroundings. We remind you: no one has the right to humiliate a person. I want everyone to think about their behavior on holiday!
Over the long years of American history, dignitaries have thought of a similar holiday. In 1775, the US Congress issued a decree on fasting, stopping public humiliation and praying for the English colonies. Four years later, George Washington called for action. True, after the tradition was almost forgotten. In 1863, Abraham Lincoln asked the Senate to revive the holiday, and everything worked out. Today it is widely celebrated by everyone who knows about it.
The day calls to remember that humiliation negatively affects a person. Sometimes events become tragic: people with a weak psyche commit suicide if their words hurt them to the core. With the opening of the Internet, it has become more difficult: it is easy to meet toxic people online who are ready to spoil your mood in a few minutes of communication. Well, today is their chance to improve!
It is noteworthy that:
- for humiliation, the weak points of a person are most often used: character traits, defects in appearance;
- when the offender hurts someone with a word, he really feels relief and even pleasure;
- insults always carry with them a desire to assert themselves at the expense of weaker people;
- sometimes a person regrets the words spoken and experiences mental anguish. He is driven by anger, but in most cases he shows true feelings;
- the initiator of insults suffers no less: he is more often faced with social problems and with the deterioration of life in general.
How to celebrate
Sure, you’ve met unpleasant people, but on Humiliation Day, think about your behavior. Help those in need: become a volunteer, make donations, provide psychological assistance, or just talk to a person who needs it. Respect others!
