It is so easy in this world to tear people down.
People say: you are not good enough – directly or indirectly, using their actions or words. Even if ever so slightly to make you feel inferior to them.
Truth be told is that your worth, your “goodness” isn’t contingent upon their approval. More often than not their need to boost themselves up by pushing someone else down is symbolic of a deeper fear or insecurity laying heavy in their own my mind.
It is so easy to tear people down, and wrong, and hurtful, and dark.
So be different – invest in someone, build people up, give people confidence and spread light.
You know those who tear, pull, and dim the world around you. Do everything you can to be everything different for others in your life – so that you can bring light.
Do what’s hard – but good. Do what’s tiring – but rewarding. Make sure that you are a consistent individual in who you say you are and who you actually are.
Build someone up today.
And the next time someone tears you down, or dims the light in your world – ask them to stop.
