Raise you human game
Has anyone ever told you that you were not good enough? Have you ever told anyone they were not good enough?
I try so hard not to focus on what people are not able to do, but raise my thoughts and see what people are capable of. I want to lift people and I want everyone to know that they have great value to the universe. No one is here by accident.
If someone tells you that you are not good enough, that you are no use, or anything like that, raise your game. Don’t give back the same way. Be the opposite, tell them how they are great, how it is so great for them to give you great critique, just let them know that you are not like them.
“if they go low, you go high”
Michelle Obama said it not too long ago “if they go low, you go high”. It is such brilliant words. The world has so many people going low, and talking in horrid ways. Even being very rude to other people. If no one stops it and say I am not like them, it is just going to go on.
Growing up I was always told to ignore and turn the other cheek. While I was told to do that, it seemed like a hopeless road with the horrid bullying coming my way. I don’t think it is the solution. You need to act, otherwise you will feel helpless. That does not mean being like them.
Your ego want to fight back, and wants you to defend yourself. Defense is more than “giving back”. If you are kind, loving and come with words from a place of love, you will be successful.
Of course, there some people who are not responding well to that ether, and that is when you need to make your stand VERY clear. Remove yourself after making it clear that it is not acceptable. Protecting yourself, does not mean fighting, it can also just mean to be kind and removing yourself.
I hope that you will live from your heart and in love, not in your ego, and fighting.
