This is for the always offended ones! Lately I see how everything is about self-confidence and also self-help but very few talk about self-awareness and it is very important. If you do not have self-awareness it is very hard to evolve as a human being. Instead of getting offended by everything why wouldn’t you pay attention to some of the criticism? (I say some because there is constructive criticism and then you have bullying .)
Don’t you want to become a better version of you?
If you are overweight and you don’t like it , instead of getting offended when someone says something about it, better do something about it. If a friend tells you that you are a jerk, before getting offended , stop and think about it. Are you or are you not? What made him say that? I know this is not something you want to hear, but open your eyes, open your mind, be self-aware and also be aware of your surroundings of the people who are around you.
If I am being told something that let’s say it’s not a compliment. I don’t jump and say “No, I’m not!”. I don’t feel good about it , but I pull back a little , become introspective and try to think if there is any reason for someone to think that way about me and if I want to do something about it or not. It’s simple like that! Don’t be afraid to admit that you are not perfect sometimes. Who is? Right? If you want to improve yourself than be aware, don’t doubt yourself , just be honest with yourself. Knowing yourself it’s going to help a lot in your journey as an ever evolving human being.
