Beggars-canít-be-choosers Mentality

I didnít know there is such a coined phrase like that, much less a mentality. But I know someone who practically lives it through his life, unbeknownst of it. Guess who?

The psyche of a person under such mentality has a world so small, forever waiting for whatever crumbs are spared of him and has given no preference but to be grateful for everything, including laced denigration, words that sting and subquality ownership. He is robbed of the choices he wasnít aware was inherent in him, a right of every human being. Worse than any disability, he was made to believe he is mentally crippled, would not amount to anything, and must content himself with the hand-me-downís that others give.

How can we make people abused and victimized like that! Itís almost as inhuman as heinous crime! ĎCould be worse. Because the indelible scars are seared in the victimís soul. You canít apply antibiotics to it, you canít see that havoc it wrecked. And if such isnít worse enough, the abused faces judgment from society and peers for not behaving the way it is dictated to as properly.
It takes the life out of living. Surely. Is being understood too much to ask, or is it near impossible of these days?
