You give what you have

What we believe is true about ourselves is what we are capable of offering to others.

Nothing more.

Nothing less.

You cannot give what you don’t have.

The day you realise this is the day you’ll see the fears and weaknesses that drives others to behave badly towards you.

It was never about you.

It’s always about reflecting who they are.

If you lack self respect, it will be difficult to respect others.

If you don’t appreciate what you have, you won’t express gratitude towards others.

If you are dishonest with yourself about who you truly are, you’ll struggle to trust the sincerity of others.

And so it continues.

The way we see ourselves is what informs our behaviour and interactions with the world.

The more threatened we feel, the more aggressive we will be.

The next time you see someone behaving badly, don’t judge them harshly, understand what they’re saying about how they value themselves, or how valued they feel by you.

Then, respond to their underlying vulnerability in a reassuring way, rather than always reacting to their bad behaviour.

Break the cycle.
