Can you believe that? That no one can offend me? That I never ever felt offended in my life? And that I live a normal human life on this planet Earth? Whether you believe me or not, it is the fact: the phenomenon of being offended is unknown to me.
I wrote something about my childhood experiences with that matter here, I mean I was aware of that thing long time ago. However only recently I could really understand the roots of this phenomenon – and that is the reason I want to share such a personal insight with the vast Internet community.
The results of my introspection are both funny and in a way controversial.
So what is the reason of me not getting offended on any negative statement/action to me? (here I have to admit that such things do not happen often, in fact extremely seldom – or I do not notice, this also could be a reason).
Here we are:
1. Whatever bad could be claimed about me – I know I am much, much better than that. My ego is so big, that nothing can put it down :).
2.Looking deeply into myself I am very much aware of my strong and weak points (introspection and meditation is the key to understanding myself better and better). I am aware of things I am good at, or I am bad at. So there is no point in reacting at some silly statement if it is wrong.
3.In case of a criticism – I love it! Any time, in any amount. That is the best fuel for my personal development.
Taking offence is always one’s ego-trip. And the Mr. Ego is somebody we obviously can not live without. But it is only the matter of using him the right way!
