Push or shove?

 

When it comes to the words push and shove, you might say that they are one and the same. Or are they? Would you rather be pushed in different areas of your life or shoved? You may feel that being pushed in the direction of pursuing your dreams is a welcome and favorable action. In this case, you don’t mind being pushed all day; if it’s going to help propel you to where you need to go. It also may depend on who’s doing the pushing. Now, lets talk about the word shove.  Shove would seem to be the ruder term -vs- push, even if only by sound.  Shove can imply taking someone by surprise and in essence can be viewed as aggressively pushing. Do think you would ever find yourself saying, I’m so glad my parents shoved me in the right direction concerning furthering my education? Maybe, maybe not. Sometimes, parents are pushy reflecting their particular style of parenting and may feel the need to aggressively shove their children to excel and become successful. But if a teacher or colleague were to do the same thing, you might very well take it defensively and feel more like you’re being shoved. After it’s all said and done, you may draw the conclusion that it really doesn’t matter as long as the end result is a positive one. But remember, the true end result may be the fallout of all that pushing and shoving.
