Today’s Lesson of the Day is “Spend more time addressing your own flaws and less time pointing out the flaws in others”.
There are many of us who LOVE to point out the shortcomings of others. We love to drag them through the mud and hold them accountable for every little thing that they do. Only to completely neglect our own flaws and wrongdoings.
We spend so much time shinning light and celebrating the downfall of others while dancing in the dark because it takes the attention off of us. The funny thing is, eventually everything we have done will catch up to us and it will all be on display.
“Whatever, that’s ridiculous”, is what you might say. Is it though? Is it really?! Keep in mind that there are people such as myself that can see right through you. Those that do not have the ability to do this, will eventually become hip to what’s really going on. It will come once everything hits the fan.
Now, when it does hit the fan, do you want to be actively working on those flaws? Or, Do you want to feel like everything is crashing down because you are forced to face the consequences of your actions that you have been trying to put off on someone else.
There’s a thing that some of us might do, it’s called Projection. That’s where we have feelings and/or traits that we try to place on others. Have you ever had someone constantly accuse you of doing something? Now, have you ever discovered that everything they were accusing you of was what they were actually doing? Right, watch out for those people who swear they never do anything. They’ll also accuse you of being the one who won’t take responsibility for your accusations and will put everything you’ve done on display to take the heat off of them.
CUT IT OUT! Please, do not do this any longer. Stop drawing attention to the flaws in others. People want to be acknowledged for their greatness just as much as you do. Some of us are some real BS people. That doesn’t mean that we have to constantly bash, talk about and try to destroy them. Let them do it themselves with the actions that they make.
In situations where someone is trying to destroy my character or do me wrong, I still try to speak well of them. I’m happy when things go well for them. Do you know why? Because the good things that happen in our lives have the capability to spark a positive change in us. This is what I want for everyone.
We’re all human and neither of us is perfect so we will always have some not-so-great traits. Those not-so-great traits are not who we are unless we let them consume us to where they become our dominant traits. If we spend more time working on ourselves, that’s less time we will have to throw the bad traits of others up on the silver screen. We’ve got to do better!
