Before Calling That Person a Snowflake…

January 9, 2023

…it might be helpful to notice the source and context of the term as it’s often used —

“You are not special. You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone, and we are all part of the same compost pile.” — Chuck Palahniuk, in Fight Club

— Meanwhile, there IS this —

1st Corinthians 12

— which includes this important point —

All this makes you more significant, not less. 

— which includes that person we might find so aggravating.

And golly gosh gee willikers, have we considered that she/he, or even they, might not absolutely adore all of our attributes?


—- Finally, as my were fond of saying, “Consider the source” as they closed the matter.

It’s difficult to hear the difference between a capital letter and a lower case letter. Maybe that’s why one of my parents would wink while saying, “Consider the Source.”
