Are they really being unkind to you? -or- Are they just not showing up in a way that feeds your ego?
Yes, sometimes people can be unkind and it hurts. Other times, people are dealing with their own shit and don’t have time or interest to deal with your shit.
We suffer greatly when we demand that others respond in the way we ‘think’ they should. It perpetuates an illusion that says your suffering (or sense of inadequacy) is the result of other people.
As much as this might suck, it can be extremely liberating. Sooner or later, we will have to drop our reliance on others to fill the void we have created on our own.
Naturally, this makes space for a Wellness that isn’t dependent on something or someone who exists ‘out there.’
