Nowadays we get too offended easily. Now, I know that some things that are little to some people are a big deal to others, which is why we say to be considerate towards other people’s feelings. I believe it comes down to understanding your audience because you never know how they will react to the things you say or do. But why do we have to do that? Why do we have to be careful with the things we say and do because of other people’s feelings? Like who cares what they think right? But that’s the thing, certain situations require for us to actually care what someone else think. For example, business deals and our parents. We want the business to be on our side so we can proceed onto better things, or our parents when we want them to allow us to go somewhere with friends, even when it’s not where we really will be. For those situations you have to care what someone has to say, but for other situations I feel like we shouldn’t have to. Bottom line is that people are going to criticize, judge, and have their own opinion on things no matter what you say or do. So why should we care about the way they think about us? When all of that is limiting how we truly feel and who we truly are? Does our personal feelings matter too? If anything should we take our feelings in account before we take someone else’s?
I feel like being angry is something that we choose to be. We’re in control of our emotions so when someone says something that we don’t like or does something that we feel is targeted towards us, we get mad and want to do something that we may or may not regret. I can’t say that I haven’t done this because I have, many times. I’ve allowed people to get to me and ruin my whole mood just by the things they would say, which then led me to doing something careless in the moment. This is something that can’t be continued because it might seem like you’re not tolerating any disrespect, but it’s also showing people that they can ruin your whole day just by saying something to you. I talked about this before and it’s called people having control over you. You see, once people have control over you they have control over your mind and having control over the mind is a dangerous thing. Now, I can’t teach you how to control your emotions because honestly that’s something that everyone has to figure out on their own. But, what I can say is that we have to be aware of what triggers our emotions so we can learn to control them and not lose control over them.
I saw you rise above the doubts you tried to disguise. I saw the tears that you kept hidden within your eyes. I saw the potential that you thought you never had. I saw your love fade away after everything went bad. I saw your strength when weakness tried to cover you like rust. I saw you over work from dawn until dusk. But I must say after everything I have seen, that you must continue to press on until you reach your dreams.
