But, filled with so much meaning and interpretation.
As young children, we often received a “talking to” from parents, peers, teachers, even church leaders.
As teenagers, we were “talked down to” by bullies. Or peers.
As adults, we are sent “to” HR for a reprimand. We are “talked to” as if we are 12-years-old.
I’m not a huge Rihanna but she does have a song lyric that I like: “Don’t talk to me like I’m stupid.”
I’m a person. Treat me with respect.
I’m a man. Treat me as such.
Either that or just leave me alone.
