How does rebellion play a role in our lives as adults? Most of us have raised young children or been around them, but it is not always them that acts out. Adults do as well.
Let us take a look at rebellion in our daily Webster Dictionary-Rebellion-1. an act of open resistance to an established government or ruler. 2. the action or process of resisting authority, control or convention.
Daily Wisdom Word Definition-1. fighting against all forms of authority, and resisting them, not only as a child but as an adult.
Rebellion is seen many times through civilian marches. You can also see rebellion in the school shootings starting with the one at Columbine High School in Colorado where 212 students were either injured or died. Rebellion was the motivating factor in these shootings. Two high schoolers that didn’t fit in, fighting against the system. This was a plan that was put into place. Rebellion isn’t always planned, but with adults, or pre-adults, it has a tendency to be.
The marches are planned. These marches most recently have been about segregation. Segregation is a daily wisdom word in itself and will be covered in the not too distant future, but this is a fight between races, not seen since the 1950’s. It is sad to think our country (USA) has turned against one another, at a time when we need each other the most.
You also see rebellion in young toddlers, the ages of two and three. They will throw temper tantrums, fight against authority such as bedtime, eating their dinner, ETC., because it is a part of the growing stage. You also see rebellion in pre-teen adolescents who are trying to establish their own identity. These pre-teen adolescents tend to break their curfews, drink, use makeup before their parents give them permission too, and many other things and this is all done to establish a sense of self.
Rebellion is seen in all societies in one form or the other whether it be in the “civil marches” that turn out not to be so Civil, but in toddlers and preteen adolescents leading us to believe rebellion happens at all ages. Rebellion can be productive when helping to establish one’s identity, but usually leads to a cause-effect relationship, that doesn’t end up being productive when it is adults doing the protesting. That however, is not always true. Many of the positive changes in society happen because of rebellion. If we just accepted what the government stated was to be, many of the good changes we see in society would not be the case today and it has taken rebellion civilly to get there.
Thank you so much for reading about rebellion with me today. This article should give you much to think about. Today, I would love to see many poems and quotes about rebellion and would really appreciate you posting them on the daily wisdom words website.
Have a beautiful and blessed day.
