Are you giving others a chance?

  • Sharebar

Do you remember my client John from a few emails back? Who couldn't bring himself to pursue his dream of opening a small hotel in Spain because of what people might think?

Well at one point during our therapy, I suddenly said to John: 'What makes you think you're so much better than other people!'

He looked taken aback. 'I don't, that's the whole point!'

'But you've already told me that you like to see the best in others; yet you assume other people always look to see the worst in you!'

He looked very thoughtful at this. Worrying that other people will think us stupid, ugly, pathetic, or un-cool is to do those people a disservice. Many people will judge you fairly and give you the benefit of the doubt - so give them the benefit of the doubt.

When you really, truly, get this, it can revolutionize how you feel about yourself, and other people. So please, take a few moments now to absorb it.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, John realized he wouldn't live forever and, the last I heard, he was loving his life in Spain.

Do you feel you're not as good as other people?
