Is it because of overstretched ego? Nerve-wracking denial? Refusing to listen about the reality because we knew we gave our all ,at work, in relationships, within family, even with our own frustrations.
I am honestly working out to get through with my tantrums. Yes! I do have it. Who doesn’t have it? Good for you then! Perhaps is it because I am a people pleaser? Am I attention seeker or what? An academic achiever? Say whatever is in your thought! I remember when I was in grade school until grade 6, I was always the Top 1 amongst students. Something to be brag about haha! I love the feeling like when I go up on stage, receiving the awards while everyone was clapping for such achievement and all eyes on you. Who wouldn’t like that? Mind you, it helped me a lot with my motivation to study more and collect more medals at the end of the school year!
As I’ve grew up, I realized that you cannot always get everything that you want, every person that you pleased or every event that you planned. So when my ego started to flare up because of disappointment, I’ve always remind myself of the following :
THAT YOU CANNOT PLEASE EVERYONE.
Being good person doesn’t guarantee that others will be good people too.
THAT IT IS OK NOT TO SAY YES TO EVERYTHING
Pretending to agree not because I wanted to be liked but it unconsciously jeopardizes my own values, my own sanity.
EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED
It always happen in all aspect of our life. Simple! Don’t expect anything in return when you do or offer something to someone.
THAT EVERYONE NEEDS ATTENTION TOO
So don’t be greedy! Let’s be generous! 🙂
