I want to brag, but I’ve been asked to refrain.
I really want to brag about something my husband did. Something that made me proud in an enormous way. But he asked me not to. He doesn’t think acting like a human being is brag worthy… but trust me, it is.
So many times, people don’t treat one another well. So many people are treated as sub-par. So many so, that it’s become more normal for it to happen than for it not to. It shouldn’t be something worth bragging on – to treat folks with dignity and respect. To treat them as equals. But in this day and age, it really is. Especially when you defend said people against remarks or injustices.
I can’t provide details. But I had to say something. Today, I’m so proud of my man… Because to treat people as equals really is a big deal in a world where it’s not expected. 🙂
