The fault in us

Standard

A piercing gaze, a sharp word, a witty remark. We do these things with a regularity that is very alarming if you start counting the instances. Every sharp word, remark we make at a particular person, even if in jest, chips away at their self esteem. It molds their personality sometimes very dangerously. The conversations they have become guarded, even if they are part of a group they isolate themselves in it, abandoning their pursuit of kinship in exchange for long silences punctuated with joining in the chorus of laughter where they ironically, end up affecting another person in the same way that they were affected before. This is a vicious cycle that continues throughout a person’s life.
