I have based this notion on, what was absolutely true at the time, a girl's prejudgment in middle school, in my sixth grade Language Art's class in 2003, which was an undoubtedly horrible time in my younger years of adolescence. Paraphrased, this is what she had insinuated about me, to which I responded with dead silence, a sad expression and disappointment. 'Please don't take you clothes off'. Now, for all intensive purposes, this does sound very silly, I agree, but you would have had to been in my predicament and walk the halls of this rambunctious school, literally dubbed "The Snake Pit", to find validation in those words. In 2003, I was a young twelve years, having not yet endured the psychological and psychosocial overhauls, therefore any thought of a girlfriend / relationship would have been negligible, due to the fact that I was compromised socially; the very practice, if you will, of this whole concept, would not be introduced to me until about my sophomore year in high school. If I am to be very honest with you, I simply did not care about a relationship, and this was the product of declaring futility in tgat regard, which should be avoided at all costs. Confidence and self-esteem are extremely paramount in life and without the former, the foundation on which they both lay shatters. To this very day, I remember that girl's words very vividly and they are still disheartening because no person desires to be assigned the awful insult of 'ugly'. For some, it may be devastating, and for others it may entail suicide. It is heartbreaking and simply rude.
Therefore, it is from this memory that renders me surprised that I am allegedly hot. I confirmed the allegation myself, simply by looking at my pictures, prior to uploading them. It is then, that my jaw drops and awe and I say to myself 'Oh my god, I really am hot; look at that cut down running down the length of my chest; is my butt really that tight? How can this be; it is unexplainable. My butt holds the geometric shape of that of a baby, and my penis is more commendable than the former. :) Of course, I have been complimented on my eyes, which I absolutely would expect. Thankfully, the girl's comment would have now seem to be successfuly negated, thus I am no longer disheartened by this. :) The well known saying posits: "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will not hurt me". However, I must say that the second half of saying. 'but words will not hurt me' is paradoxical, given that words can be extremely hurtful depending upon the context in which they are used. Mental abuse is the most horrible variant of abuse that one endures, very sadly females in relationships or marriages. I do not condone such, it is shameful and certainly not commendable. Mental abuse is detrimental, but can very well be averted if the girl / woman in peril takes the initiative and terminates the relationship / marriage herself. She need not ever be thought of as inferior or negligible when juxtaposed to the husbad / father / provider. The woman holds an equivocally-important position just as the man does, and she deserves to be commended, for behind every man, is the backbone of the household, and referencing the functional society, in the event that she is out of commission, her husband's work lunch cannot be prepared and her children cannot be tended to and prepared for school. The woman is critical, she is a precedent and her job is an undertaking.
This very component of my essay is strongly reflective of my personal accounts in my household. I am going to stress this trumphantly and proudly, for it is for this very reason, that I am going to make a great, loving and caring boyfriend / husband / father / provider one day; any practice of chauvinism is strictly taboo, underwritten in my "mental code of ethics". Thus, these two examples that I have provided in depth, surve as my contending argument as for why the 1864 saying "Sticks and bones may break my bones, but words will not hurt me", is a partial paradox, given that words or phrases can have a lasting impact on their recipients psychologically.
