Took sick leave today. I’m blogging now while waiting for the drowsy effect of the medicine to kick in.
I feel bothered by three things:
1. Some people have a narrowed thinking about something that they will try to influence you to think as negatively as them. If they insist on A then its A if you think its B they will try to “correct” your thinking so that B becomes A. Dont they understand that you have your own opinions too? If they want to think A and you want to think B, and you are ok with your own thoughts, why do you have to conform to them?
2. This also reminded me of Matthew 7:3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?” If we judge others, do we not see our own imperfections?
I personally feel that if there’s something you arent happy about someone, you should tell them directly instead of talking behind their backs. Something I tend to observe is that people who usually like to comment about the nitty gritty details of others, are themselves the ones who cannot accept feedback or criticism.
3. If we surround ourselves with negative people, we would get negative energy from them. How can we deflect such negativity if we think that they would not be open to us saying that they are negative? It can be rather draining to radiate positivism when the other party is always negative.
Is anyone feeling this way too?
