I saw this meme the other day and thought that the meme maker had quite a creative way of looking at things.
Then I started pondering on this.
Being a parent myself now, I consider that, though this meme might not be a serious one, it does give out an indirect message on life.
“Everyone Loves Them”
Yes, who doesn’t love a baby? Ladies go “Awwww…”, girls go “Hey….”, most people want to carry it. Even the most brutal of us smile at a baby.
But is this because of its cuteness? Its soft skin, nice smell, general vulnerability?
The answer: It is just because a baby LOVES everybody.
And yes, it is the purest form of love.
A baby loves everyone around it, without any bias. It has no preconceived notion, no skin-color based preference, no race or language bias.
So, if you accept this theory, the slightly modified variation of it also holds true to a great extent:
Even as an adult, if we love everyone around us people would start loving us for what we are.
(There are many complaints these days on wanting to be accepted for what one is)
Just like how a baby loves them purely, perhaps acceptance is what people around us need too?
