One day, I got tired of people always talking about the way I dress or present myself, so I decided to write a little story to defend myself. I still feel this way today, but my views on my image has been altered slightly. I guess it comes with age or some mess.
Some say “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Others say “Your actions speak louder than words.” So from this, we can assume that actions/pictures or images > words. Now that we know that “sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt me,” What about the other two? Let’s take a good Samaritan as an example. He is dirty and smell and looks hood, but he just saved a child from a burning building. Now, would you think he would be feared or praised? I’m pretty sure praised, but of course when you first see them, you would think they are a nobody and horrible person. Now, let’s take a thug 4 lyfe, dressed in a nice suit and tie. This powerful foe blows up Manhattan with only his ki. Of course his suit stays clean and fresh. Is this guy a role model? Of course not, but at first glance, he looked clean.
So, now we can finally have the correct equation for your life.
At first glance: Image > Actions > Words
99.9999999999872431% of life: Actions > Sticks and Stones > Image » Words.
So, make your actions count and leave me alone about how I look. I don’t need a haircut all the time, nor do I need to dress like I’m 38. Just shut up and follow my example as a true good person.
