Sometimes people will ridicule you, just because they feel insecure due to your goodness. So, don’t get disheartened, forgive them, forget it and move ahead. Your life means more than that, it has a greater purpose.
Each one of you has something good inside. Although nobody is perfect, but still, you are better at something than the people around you. There would be at least one thing which people admire about you. And sometimes it becomes the reason for people around you to ridicule you. They do it, just because they start feeling inferior to you in some way or the other. They start finding faults in you and make you realize that you are weak. They feel insecure because of your goodness. They cannot see that positive thing in themselves, therefore it becomes difficult for them to digest how you are able to do it with less efforts. It is those people who themselves feel inferior try to pull leg of others around them.
The moment you find it, do not get disheartened by the negatives you are listening to. In fact, take it as a proof that you have some good qualities in you. Try to introspect and dig them out. Feel good about it and nurture them to grow even bigger.
Eleanor Roosevelt, the longest serving First Lady of the United States, writer and humanitarian, once said “Remember, no one can make you feel inferior without your consent”.
Once you start giving heed to what others say, you start giving your own control to them. You start feeling how others want you to feel. You think you are not good. You think you can’t do it. You think bad about yourself. You do negative self-talk. Your confidence goes down the stairs. You think yourself as a failure. You think you can’t grow. You think you are as good as nothing. You curse yourself. You start speaking badly about others too. Actually you become like the people around you. Now, you become one of them and start ridiculing others. You lose your own self. You become one of those people who feel insecure due to the goodness of others.
Do you really want to be like that?
Or you want to be happy?
Do you want to sink in the mud of negativity?
Or you want to feel good about yourself like shimmering sunlight?
Do you want to be a liability to others or an asset, whom everybody looks at with respect?
Do you want to fill your mind with the garbage which you never wanted at the very first place?
Or you want to immerse it in the golden light of your true self?
The choice is always yours. Nobody ever can choose for you until you give them the consent to do so. Those people around you are the victims of same thing which we are talking about. You just need to ignore what they are saying. Don’t feel bad about them, otherwise you will become one of them. Forgive them, for their ignorance and forget about it. Move ahead. Your life has a greater purpose. You got to enjoy your life in its real sense by knowing your true self. You need to know who truly you are, your thoughts, your ideas, your dreams and the ultimate purpose of your life. The sooner you start working on this, the better your life would be.
Ridiculing others is the easiest thing to do, anyone can do it. But praising others is the difficult task because for doing so you need to observe carefully, listen attentively, show compassion and be empathetic. The more such difficult things you do in your life, more praise worthy you become yourself.
Don’t listen to anybody if it doesn’t make you any better than who you are. Just move ahead and make yourself better day by day, week by week, month by month and year by year. Life is too short to do everything. So, choose what you want in your life and work for it passionately. Because that is the only thing which can give you true happiness.
Always remember, you are really wonderful!!
