Have you ever considered what your intentions are?
Why do you feel compelled to compliment someone? Or insult?
Is it because you consider yourself a ‘nice’ person or maybe you consider yourself to be a butt? And that means you are living up to your potential.
Consider this…truthfully your intentions are to feel good. Even if you are full of insults, you always come back with either, “You know me…I am a jerk!” (Which actually means let me make myself feel better by excusing my crappy action and expecting everyone else to feel better about it.) Or, “You know I am only joking or attempting to help you!” (You don’t want my opinion of this statement).
Next time you have the opportunity to ‘state your opinion’ think…what are my intentions on making this statement.
Because I promise illuminating insults will in return not make you feel better. And someday, somewhere, someone will return the favor…Hmmmm, wonder how you will feel and if your intentions will change?
As I learn more each day my greatest lessons always come from those who provide me with the most resistance. I am grateful for those people, but also send out a message of caution.
Although you may have ‘good’ intentions, ensure they are lifting up the other person before you speak. Not because of the amount of harm you cause someone else, but rather the harm you bring upon yourself!
