Some Relatives Will Never See Eye to Eye and Here’s Why…
Just because you and a family member don’t always agree with one another, it should not hinder the ability for the two of you to get along. As much as we want people to see things our way, there is always another perspective which provides an outing for that person.
If this world was full of one way streets, how could we ever meet on one accord? If stop signs didn’t slow you down, you would have probably kept going. If every turn one took went left, what would make you so right? If there were no “wrong way” signs, who knows where you’d be, right? If there were no detours, you would have probably kept straight. If there were no second chances in life, you’d never have much to say.
Don’t let his or her comment be an excuse for failure, and don’t base your success on someone else’s treasure. All too often, many of us blame our failures on what someone else said. Sadly, this can sometimes come from our parents, whom I will address in a later paragraph. Personally, I use negative comments as fuel and challenge that person with my success. I actually like it when someone criticizes my skills or abilities. One of my professors criticized my work once while at Phoenix, and he was pretty blunt…so much for constructive criticism. Boy, did I have it out for him after that! Instead of whining or crying over a negative comment, I fired back with finesse! My next paper was flawless! All he could say was, “Great paper!” I was smiling from ear to ear because I knew it was impressive. That is the same attitude you have to have when someone tries to insult your intelligence or make you feel inferior by highlighting your weaknesses or identifying your faults. People who have issues love to try to bring others down with insult or battery. If the negative use of words was a crime, a lot of people would be locked up. The crime would be classified as “Verbal Abuse”, and the perpetrators would be called “Dream Killers” or “Dignity Stealers”.
