The term meat can be used in a number of different ways, in reference literally to flesh but also a derogatory term, considered mostly for women but could well be used in reference to men. The term treating someone like a piece of meat referring is a feeling of dehumanisation and objectification, women are most vocal regarding their treatment in this way but I genuinely believe that women are far worse culprits in this case, we shame men for porn and staring at page 3 girls and yet we as heterosexual women objectify footballers, musicians, models, is this any better I ask you? Women may be the more ‘vulnerable’ sex for want of a better phrase but we are just as culpable, men may not feel as strongly about it or it feeds their egos in someway but it doesn’t make it right.
So what makes meat rare? What makes anything rare? exclusivity, uniqueness? Its traditionally defined as uncommon or few and far between, by definition we are all rare as we are not the same and yet some of us are considered rare and some of us common because we don’t stand out, sidelined because we are too shy to show off our assets like others do. There is nothing wrong with being strong and confident in oneself life is for the taking and you should live your best life not caring what others think of you, if you feel uncomfortable say something or walk away but don’t feel trapped do nothing and complain, its akin to whining about the state of your country and then not voting for change.
In a world where we are encouraged to conform and are groomed to be workers for the streams of large companies its important to stand out from the crowd, few will love you for it when you are successful but those friends who love you for you and understand your process will always support you, joining the throng and getting trapped under the glass ceiling is fine if that’s what you want to do but again don’t get yourself then fight like a cat in a barrel because you suddenly discovered youve been stripped of your identity and are just as under appreciated as everyone else. Napoleon Hills ‘Think and Grow Rich’ teaches an individual positive mindset and encourages you to stand out from the crowd, it also encourages you to be the best version of you possible, if you havent read it I strongly suggest you do, its available to buy or download online.
