Haven’t we all grown to accept what reminds us of our greatness and dismiss what has the courage to state our flaws as they are? Maybe, this reaction of ours comes from our mindset that what we accept is reality and what we unaccept is imagination. But, what if I told you that reality can not only be distorted but also moulded into shapes that suit our perspectives even if they disregard the perspectives of all learned? Isn’t this why we, in the first place, feel like we have the right to ‘accept’ or ‘unaccept’ it?
The point that I am trying to make here is simple to read and maybe complicated to understand. Feed yourself and be surrounded with what grows and modifies your soul, not what feeds hay to your false ego. Even if what can grow you is made of harsh truths. Learn. Accept. Grow. Repeat.
Next time, you come across some bitter truth, something that does not promise to put you at a greater position in the eyes of others, maybe consider the option of taking that criticism seriously and working on your belief that you have flaws that if corrected can lead to your own better qualitied sense of self.
