Adjectives

An adjective is a word that describes a noun or pronoun. Without adjectives it would be hard for us to express what we mean when we are talking about ourselves or others. We describe people, places, things, animals and etc on what they look like or when we talk about their characteristics.

I’ve learned about adjectives during my 3rd grade in grade school. We were tought when to use it and how to use it. At the same time my teacher tought us the proper way to use them, like for instance the use of negative adjectives such as ugly, weak and etc. We should be mindful of the words that come out of our mouth because we never know if we are offending someone or a group of people.

I agree with my teacher, but at the same time I disagree because adjectives are just words to describe something. Unless we say it to others. And even if we say it the other way like ugly= less desirable, the outcome is still negative if the person you are refering to hears that, for example.

I had a chat conversation with a friend. She asked me how am I doing. I replied, I’m still the same except that I’m fat now. Then she said that why would I say such a thing and that I should not say the word fat because it’s like shaming the plus size community. I told her that the one I was describing to as fat is no other than myself and it is not fat shaming others because I was refering to myself and even if I use “got bigger”, still it is the same. So, how should I describe myself then? And besides, I don’t see fat as a negative word. In my opinion, we should use this word often to get rid of the negative association to fat shaming. And do not forget, there is nothing wrong in being fat!

The world today is full of negativity, criticisms and “in betweens”. Simple and small things get complicated and hurtful because people do not listen. They only hear what they want to hear. Hence, making respect one sided. Meaning, if you have the same mindset as them, you gain their respect.
