When you feel the need to put someone else down, ask yourself…
“Why does this trigger me?”
The answer may not come to you at that moment. But asking the question may lead to what’s beneath the surface.
It may be a root issue. It may be that someone made fun of you for something similar. It may be that you see yourself in that person. It may be that you’re trying to look cool in front of someone else. It may be something else.
These moments, when we are putting others down, are incredible moments to reflect.
They can help us identify our deepest insecurities and fears.
And once we identify them, we can go about changing them.
We just have to be willing to ask the question.
