Contrary to how it sounds this January holiday is not an opportunity to humiliate someone or a celebration of humiliation. Rather, it’s a way to call attention to the inherent negativity present when someone is humiliated. While it may sound backward, the goal of this January holiday is to move forward.
Take the day to reflect on how it feels to be humiliated and how to prevent humiliating another person, whether intentional or unintentional. A day of reflection restores positive mindsets and ensures mindfulness of situations where negative impressions can occur — namely, a humiliating one.
