A young guy recently said to me that he did not not mind what someone said to him so long as they did not try to “…ram it down my throat”.
This is an interesting saying to me because, just earlier, I had been accused by him, that
I did not present my message well enough for him to easily swallow.
Sounds like he has high expectations of how others need to speak to him but at the same time I do not want to be accused of this either so I will proceed to dissect what I see as my problem and see if I can convert it.
I guess my problem is that he seems to be making everyone around him, including me, that does not speak or act perfectly with him, into THE problem, setting himself up as some sort of deity, which I guess we all do to a lesser or greater degree.
Of course no one literally tries to “ram their ideas down our throat” but they do try to make us as the problem and try to convert us away from this problem.
Hey! Wait a minute, that sounds like our young friend above, making everyone else the problem and in his, round about way, trying to convert them from their problematic ways.
What a paradox and a hypocritical way to act and think, I think.
So what is the solution to this problem? I will leave you to ponder first and for a while and any feedback much appreciated.
