There are times in our lives where we feel so down and worthless because of what others say about us or how others look at us. More often than not, we let the views of others affect our emotions and our actions. Addicted people are most vulnerable to this kind of situation. They experience more judgement and more discrimination while they are struggling with their addiction. What most people don't know is that this gives addicted people more reason to give in to their addiction because they feel that they are indeed alone in this world and that addiction is their only non-judgmental company. The act of looking down upon others because of what they lack or because of their weaknesses always gives a negative impact to the one being looked down upon. It makes them feel more unworthy and small. It is my hope that people would stop looking down at each other but instead lift each other up especially when one is struggling more than the other. Addicted or not, each life on this earth matter equally. All os us each have our own struggles to face and it just so happened that we have different struggles to go through. Let us all learn to lift each other up so that we will all be standing in the same platform, living a peaceful and meaningful life.
