What if we live in a world wherein we know that it isn’t always about us and our feelings?
There are a bunch of things that lead back to us—being selfish and thinking about our feelings, treating our emotions as important as a precious gem without realizing that we are just part of a vast universe. That the world does not revolve around us and we shouldn’t be too selfish.
Here are the things that happen when our feelings are being “too important” for us.
- When things do not go our way, we focus our energy on being frustrated and disappointed.
- We question whether or not we deserve an ugly treatment.
- Our pride is important. Our ego should be fed every once in a while.
- We form hatred and ill feelings toward other people because we may be jealous, insecure, immature or anything that floats that same boat.
- We are too petty.
Imagine how easier our life will be if we don’t see ourselves as entitled and privileged as we usually do?
If we realize that this isn’t about us, about our feelings, we tend to be more positive, more accepting and more grateful. We don’t sulk so much, we don’t waste our energy on things that shouldn’t matter.
