Prejudice is a form of bias. It is a filter of misperception where someone else’s individuality is ignored in favor of fixating on the specific traits or qualities that match the description of characters associated with trauma.
Sometimes such prejudice is not based on the traumas of the person viewing through a bias, but handed down from family members and taken on by those desperate for approval from their family of origin.
Whether its a gender bias, a racial prejudice, judgments about special needs, sexual orientation, religious viewpoints, political affiliations, or cultural differences, the tendency to lump individuals into categories of generalization based solely on the unconscionable actions of others is how the conflict of separation is perpetuated.
This helps us recognize prejudice as a trauma wound that has calcified into a hardened bias used to give people a false sense of power as a coping mechanism for the loss of power someone has yet to reclaim.
Rather than attempting to prove your worth or convince someone how different you are, the best approach is compassion.
Perhaps it arises as a simple truth you can convey by saying or thinking, “Thank you for letting me know that you are not ready to be as open with me as I am eager to be open with you. May your wounds be healed through the path you walk. May love find its way to you.”
May these words remind you to always be open to love to the best of your ability, while not making it your personal mission to pry open the hearts that may open more miraculously in your absence instead of your presence.
Even if and when a prejudice causes relationships to reach their completion, you are better off thanking the Universe for all it provided to help you expand and remain grateful that such an ending spared you from enduring greater hardship than fighting with the bias of another to get them to see you the way you want to be seen.
Ultimately, the only one who ever sees you clearly is you.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to use discernment to respect the wounds and journey of others, while choosing to bring characters into your life as intimately as they can clearly see you — separate from their painful past.
This is the heart of empowerment.
