Dealing with people who put you down :(

prelim exam and defense of chapter 1 in research.

(Apologies for the lack of updates,blog hopping and not able to comment on your entries..)

hay. sometimes, there are people who will put you down.
i know that person wants me to feel badly about myself. i should NOT give them that power. (BWAHAHA) I'm a psych student, so i have the ability and desire to understand others. but if they're psych majors also, maybe they've experienced a trauma of their own in the past and they don’t know how to deal with the pain so they'll hurt others as a defense mechanism. wahaha. :))

Maybe, I have also made a mistakes ..

Byron Katie in her book, “I Need Your Love – Is That True?” says the best response is to say, “thank you, you may be right.” Her theory is that if a comment makes you feel defensive then that’s a clue that you need to look inside yourself and see why the comment bothers you so much. This could be like receiving a great gift because you’ve discovered an area within that needs healing.

Maybe mistakes are what make our fate... without them what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn't fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it's comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart... and if you're very lucky, a plane ride away. - Sex and the City

I will use this as a motivation to improve myself. A person can't hurt you unless you let it. :)
