Name Calling Should Empower You??
I know! - There are times when I know that more than a few of you are likely to be angry or upset over what I am about to say. And, those are the times that I feel most confident about why I must say those things. This is one of those times...
So she called you a 'Loser'. Big deal. You know that you aren't. But why does it hurt so much when she called you that name? Does a part of you think that it might be true?
Calling a person hurtful names is certainly not a typical way to endear someone to you. Often, it's said during an argument. Or in retaliation to something that you said or did to hurt them.
Often, we don't stand back as if we were looking at ourselves from across a room. We don't ask whether or not we would wish to date or spend our lives with the 'you' that you observe. It can be painful. We can have self-doubts. We can come up with a gazillion reasons why we are the way that we are. But we need to make a very serious and hard decision: Do we want to have the life that a 'Loser' lives? Or, is having a wonderful relationship and a steady, 'at least okay' job, and friends worth the risks involved in changing your ways?
Bottom-line: If someone whom you have feelings and respect for chooses their words carefully enough to say that you are 'acting like a Loser', then pay attention! Grow up. Make the choice to be the person that you know exists somewhere deep inside of you!
I invite any of you who wish to do so, to send me your experiences in this area. If any of them are published here, we will not use the names that you give us. Send them to: Admin@MenExpressThemselves.com
