All Lives Matter, But Does Yours Matter More?Β 

Does your life matter more than someone else’s?

Think about it for a moment. Don’t just think about it. Think about it deeply. πŸ˜‡

This is quite the controversial topic. The majority of us may say, “No, ofcourse not!” Some others would say, “Yes, why not?”

What do you think?

The problem behind this question is that it’s difficult to answer it. Why?

If you say yes, you’ll be seen as a racist, extremist, and many other things.

If you say no, well.. You are cool. Except you could just be saying it only because it’s the right thing to say.

Why would anyone think that their life matters more than the life of someone else? Is it because you think your race is superior to someone else’s? Is it because you feel like terrorists who kill innocent people don’t have a place in this world? Is it because you feel like that about yourself? “I am special. Ofcourse my life is more important.”

It’s completely fine to have your own opinion, just make sure to drop them down. πŸ‘πŸ»

So what do you think? All lives matter, ofcourse. But does your life matter more than someone else’s?

Cheers!

With Love.

  1. I think it depends on the individual perspective on whether their life is valuable as compared to others. But as for myself, I think that my life is not as valuable as I am just on this earth trying to find a purpose that I have not found yet.

  2. I strive to remember every day that God loves each and every one of us equally. Some days that’s easier than other days. I try to remember that I’m not more important than anyone else, but I’m not less important than anyone else either. Notice I used the words “strive” and “try.” I’m still a work in progress.

  3. I don’t believe my life matters any more or less than anyone else’s. My drug addiction was an ugly thing. Addiction doesn’t care what color one’s skin is, what name one assigns to his or her deity, social status, wealth… And recovery from addiction works for everyone, regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, religion (or lack of religion). My recovery teaches me humility, which I see as understanding that I am no better than anyone else and I am no less than anyone else. We are all equal in both addiction and in recovery, and that applies to life outside of the rooms of 12 step fellowships.

    However, I also know without a doubt, that I live in a western society that both values my life more than others (because my skin is pale and my eyes are blue and my hair is fair and straight), and values my life less than others (because I am female, because I am an addict–recovering or not, and because my addiction left me with felony convictions on my record).

    It is definitely uncomfortable believing that we are all equal and we are all deserving of being treated with dignity, while living in a society that doesn’t place that same value on every human life.

    1. Love how you opened up through this comment Cynthia. I agree with you 100%. People tend to think that how worth a life is varies depending on so many reasons. Everyone has some reason to label someone as less or more than someone else. Anyway, keep strong and you’ll get through the addiction! Love!

          1. Unless I tell people I’m a recovering addict, they don’t know LOL. But here in the southern Baptist Bible belt of America, some people still think “once an addict always an addict” and distrust me, but it’s not overt it’s very covert/subtle

  4. I agree I feel that although you may value your life, sometimes it is that underlining trait of humanity that makes us humans and not animals. Animals look after for themselves because they need to survive, but humans are better than that; humans can come together and support each other.

  5. I feel like it’s not just a yes or no answer. To me, my life matters more than some stranger I don’t know but my kids lives take precedence. Now before I had kids I’m not sure it would matter over someone elses but it’s very situational!

  6. Personally, I think if you are thinking about whose life matters more, yours or all others, there’s a problem there. Just live life spreading kindness and doing what you can daily and with the people you encounter. It’s not always good to obsess over which lives matter as it is to obsess over how to be a better person.

  7. All lives matter. Because the more we segregate races, even if we think it’s for a just cause such as the Black Lives Matter movement, it just creates more opportunities for bigotry to rise.

    Black lives aren’t the only ones dealing with persecution in today’s society, so all lives need to rally in our efforts to value one another.

    1. Yup, 100% true. This video was made back in the time where all over the media it was about a discrimination between black and white people I’m assuming. That’s why it’s focused on black lives. However, what I meant by ‘inside we are all black’ is that inside we are all the same. Cheers and thanks for commenting!
