To--100 Words


Simple word.

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.
