Social interaction is not a competition, nobody sets out to try and make you feel inadequate, people will however fight back, they will defend themselves, and neither should one feel ashamed to be seen. Many outperform me in many areas, but I am adequately and healthily fond of myself sufficient that my response is simply in being happy for them. We should respect each other, and each others point of view. This means that we should consider a point of view, an argument, not just dictate over it, that we should work with each other and through this process go away with more than we came here with. It`s easy, for we are only dealing with words on a screen.
As if I`d honestly care what you are kidding yourself that you think, yes, I do n`t actually think that you believe any of it. The battle is n`t with me, it is in convincing yourself that you are adequate, and to achieve this you must discredit me. You do n`t exist though, never did, these are merely words on a screen. The only thing that`s happening, apart from you frantically trying to discredit me at every single last turn, and my quite justifiably defending myself, is that you are growing ever more jealous.
I must either be doing at least a half adequate job of defending myself, or otherwise beneath it all you must know that I am actually quite genuine. Do you expect that I should claim to be useless at everything in order to save your pride? I would, but this is n`t hospital now. I do, I`ve been there, but having first established a friendship, and when actually knowing an individual and having made the decision to embrace them. I cannot be more than just human here.
The most ageing single thing that we can do is to put ourselves down. We should celebrate our strengths, and nurture our weaknesses, show humility, acceptance, create greater awareness come empathy, be genuine, considerate, forgiving, never bloody mindedness, both expecting a point of view, and respecting one, and in intelligent non defensive balanced debate.
