I just want to talk about something that has been on my mind a lot lately…
People who make us feel bad about ourselves or something that we are doing without a good reason.
I feel like I see this happening all around me, quite a bit. It happens to me, it happens to the people I love, and I am sure it happens to you.
When it does happen, I notice that usually the person who is saying or doing the thing that is hurtful, does it in a passive aggressive way, so you don’t exactly see it coming, you don’t know why it happened, and the other person usually thinks it is something funny so you don’t know exactly how to respond, at least that is my experience.
Is this something that happens to you? Maybe I am just venting, but I figured I would vent publicly just in case.
The point of writing this out isn’t just to complain though, the reason why I wanted to write it out is because I wanted to say that it isn’t us that is the problem, and technically it isn’t totally them.
In my opinion is all boils down to low self-esteem, self-doubt, or something else internal, so they have to project negatively onto others in order to make themselves feel better (but I don’t think it actually does make them feel better).
Sometimes I take it personally, and I get irritated, but I have to remind myself that it has to be something that is going on inside of them, and not something that I did to deserve it. And then just push past it, forgive, and forget, or at least forgive.
I just felt the need to put these thoughts out into the internet-verse because I just have a feeling that I am not the only one who goes through this, and I just wanted to say one, you’re not alone, and two it isn’t you, so don’t doubt yourself for one minute.
Alright, that is the end of my vent/thoughts/advice/whatever this was. I just wanted to get it off my brain and share.
I hope you have a fabulous start of the week, a fabulous middle of the week, and a fabulous end of the week!
