Excerpt from The Revised & Updated Edition of
My Feet Aren’t Ugly
“Every time you make fun of someone or talk behind theirs backs, you act like you’re better than they are. It leaves you feeling bad because you know deep down that you are not better than they are.”
When we talk behind a person’s back, or do anything else to them that isn’t nice, it makes us feel worse inside then you make them feel. You might not even notice it, but it’s there. It’s not possible to be mean to others and have it not affect us negatively.
When you go against your true self, you feel bad about yourself. If you feel bad about yourself, your self esteem takes a beating. If you got into a physical fight and got your body beat up, how would you feel physically? I’m guessing pretty bad. Well, when you do things that affect your sense of self, negatively, your inside takes a beating.
So start paying attention to how you treat people, and know that when you make someone else feel bad, you’re doing the same damage to yourself.
