What are we trying to prove to others? In the middle of traffic, we are just a one big mass moving from place A to B. We can’t stand when someone comes to our way or slowing us down. It’s always the same: my life, my career, my dreams, my money, my well-being, and the list goes on and on. How you’re supposed to gain respect from others if you’re not giving a thing to them?
People are unsure about themselves. They are blaming somebody else for their mistakes and they refuse looking deep into the mirror. If you’re recognizing yourself from above this post is for you.
Stop judging others
I consider judging as a cry for help. When you’re doing that out loud you are only showing your own weakness. And that means you are suffering from low self-esteem. People like to blame others and judge because their ego needs it. They need to feel better. To feel better their ego needs someone to be beneath, with your ego above.
Next time when someone is attacking you verbally, smile back. See what happens. I’m pretty sure that your attacker is just trying harder to attack you. Why? Think about it. His ego needs your reaction to feel better. When you’re giving back a smile it confuses this attacker usually.
You can’t get if you don’t give
That is the universal law. Life is full of opportunities. You just have to treat others as you would like to get treated by them. Pretty simple. No one is getting in your way. Nobody is going to stop you pursuing your dreams. The only one who is doing that is you. It’s all in your mind. Don’t let others hold the key to your peace of mind.
Give a little space for yourself
In our hectic society, we often let stress suck the life out of us. You’re surrounded by stress. But don’t let that get it to you. I strongly suggest meditation at this point. And the music of course. Take a little slice from your time schedule and turn your focus inwards and just enjoy the moment. It can feel hard at first but practicing meditation and self- awareness you will get amazing results that will increase your well-being. You can use everyday situations as examples.
Here is one:
Maybe you have noticed that you always wake up late and you are in a hurry going to work. You feel stressed. You are checking your watch all the time. Your morning feels like a living hell. After all that morning struggle you end up being late. So here is a simple solution for you. Wake up earlier! Life is not all about managing from task to task. Your day is full of tasks. Even when you are doing this one task, you are already thinking the next one. What kind of life is that? Enjoy your morning coffee at peace. In silence. Meditate if possible. Just let yourself wake up without being in a hurry. Pay attention to all your doings. When you’re going out, feel the morning breeze. If it’s raining, feel the rain. Like Bob Marley said: Some people feel the rain; others just get wet.
You get my point. Bravo, now you have given a little space for yourself already.
