We all know the self-defensive attitude of protecting what we perceive as ours. This attitude teaches us unconsciously to repress empathy and see the other person as a threat. Whether we’re talking cake, time off or doing tiny unethical mistakes, we often get to keep what we fought for at the cost of our self-esteem.
Each decision that doesn’t reflect the best choice we are capable of doing takes away from the quality of our being and shapes our character into something that we don’t feel proud about. Think of all the anger and the negative emotions you surf on, assuming that that’s life. That isn’t life. Is a personal choice of underperforming in life. Make the right choice at any cost and you’ll at least be able to keep your chin up.
