It does not matter who you are or what you do – there will always be those who choose to find fault with you, people who criticise. Let them. Their hurtful words are about their own inner resistance, if you push back then you have introduced resistance within you as well.
‘But shouldn’t I let them know how wrong they are in their lackful perspective?’ Well, of course you can allow it to bring you down for a moment, then it will feel like relief to criticise them back – but you don’t have to! Just in your statement above “…their lackful perspective” you have pushed back with some criticism.
Take a step back and acknowledge to yourself that EVERYONE is doing the best they can with the understanding, awareness, knowledge, beliefs and desires they hold in the moment. EVERYONE innately wants to feel good and to feel love. Anything less than that – like when they point out faults or hurt you in some way – comes from a place of resistance within themselves.
There is a lot of things you can choose to focus on in another person – you can choose to focus on things that feel off to you or on things that feel good. The perspective YOU CHOOSE says more about YOU than them. Choose love, choose appreciation, choose inner peace. If it feels too hard right now, let their words or action hurt your feelings for a moment while you back away, distract yourself with other things and then from a more general perspective, choose reliefgiving thoughts about the situation. ❤
