If you ever wonder whether or not you are privileged and clueless… read the following.
I am blatantly aware that I am privileged, but really never paid attention to all the numerous opportunities I’ve had growing up.
For example, I possess approximately three guitars in which I’ve never learned how to play. I have a ukulele that costed a pretty penny… I also never learned how to play. I had drums at one point, which resulted in the garbage because well it was “collecting dust and taking up too much space.” The one thing I actually did learn how to play was my trumpet, but that was a middle school thing. Now it sits gently somewhere in storage with no use. I had no idea how privileged I was regarding certain things in life. I never considered all these instruments I have and the very little to no possibilities others have of ever possessing an instrument they so desperately want to play. Yet here I have all these instruments with little to no care regarding them.
Just when I thought I wasn’t as privileged as those perhaps economically higher than myself. I think of those who have little to no possibilities of ever having even one instrument in which I own five of.
I’m sure we all own or have things we never pay attention to, knowing someone else with a yearning want would make much more use of it.
