Have you ever been accused of thinking that you’re better than everyone else?
I think it’s a horrible thing to say to someone and can only come from a place of jealousy. It says a whole lot more about the person saying it than the person it is being directed at. We are all capable of being a better person, being nicer, kinder, braver. We are all capable of doing anything we put our minds to.
When you see Olympic runners or a swimmer or those buff fitness extraordinaire’s and you think,
“Wow! They are incredible, I could never run that fast, or look that good”
Why couldn’t you?
Yes okay some people are better at some things than others, for instance Adele’s voice is a natural gift, however that doesn’t make anyone else’s singing voice less important. You can train to be a better singer, a faster runner, a healthier person.
You can be whatever you want to be and if you see someone trying to better their life and do something with it then praise them, offer them support and tell them how well they are doing. Don’t tear them down or tell them they think they are better than everyone just because they are living their life.
I was once told that I have delusions of grandeur and that I think I’m better than anyone, I’m above them. This bothered me for a long time and deeply hurt me and for some time it stopped me trying. I thought that me trying to become me was giving off the wrong impression, I now realise that it was the jealousy of the other person causing them to say these things. They saw that I could maybe make something of myself and instead of encouraging me they wanted to stop me and they did, for a while.
These are the people who need encouragement of their own. We all have something we wish we could be doing, earning more money, working for ourselves, going on holiday, finding time to relax, spending more time with family, getting fitter, being a painter, a tightrope walker. It’s all possible but you won’t get there by tearing others down.
I do not think I am better than anyone, we are all human, we are capable of the same things, it just depends on the time and effort we are willing to put in.
Don’t let other people’s fear of change stop you from creating a beautiful life. They’ll understand one day and they might feel bad about what they said but they’ll have learnt by then that they can forgive themselves and you too will have forgiven them a long time ago ♥
Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.
Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,
next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂
Be happy and keep smiling 😀
