I’m right and you are wrong. I actually know a lot, and you should listen to what I have to say. I’m not even going to hear what you are trying to say to me, I’m trying to make my point. Why aren’t you listening?
Say hello to pride. It has been the root of destruction since 1888.. and way before that. Pride has reared it’s ugly head many times in my life, whether from me or the next person. It divides common goals, dreams, love, and peace. Pride is the train of dignity derailing, taking you right off course towards a crash landing. And if you don’t jump that train quickly, it will be a total loss.
Dignity, now that is something worth fighting for. Dignity represents your values, worth and love. It’s not self-seeking and it fights for the greater good. So how can dignity turn so quickly into pride?
Insecurities. We all deal with them in some form or another. They tell us we aren’t good enough, the next person has it better, and pretty soon there you are, trying to prove yourself.
These days, I actually love being wrong. I love having less. It gives me a chance to learn something new and build meaningful relationships. But before I could do that, I had to know the truth.
The truth is, that no matter who you are or what you’ve done, you are enough. You are more than enough. No matter what the next person has said about you, or how they have treated you. Everything about you is unique, valuable, strengths, weaknesses, all of you.
We live in a society with ridiculous standards about beauty, strength, wealth, and fortune. Somebody else always has it better. I call complete b.s. Don’t buy it. Rather than focus on what you lack, focus on what you have. What you are passionate about. What you are strong in. Build on your strengths and dreams. Admit when you are wrong. Soon enough, you’ll find yourself on a solid track.
What will you fight for today?
