Truth is, there are moments when I’m just tired of being understanding. Trying to see things from others’ point of views. But at the same time, this is me. This is one of my character traits that I love the most. I like the fact that I am able to put myself in others’ position and trying to understand where they come from.
You’re not alone in this feeling. People who are caring and compassionate can get hurt if we’re not aware how to build our resilience. People used to tell me “why do you smile so much?” and after a while, like a nail that ultimately goes through a wall, their words changed me. UNTIL, I realized that their unhappiness was the root cause, and there’s no way to expect to make everyone happy. This perception shift helped me become more resilient. That resilience actually developed through human connection, and trying to make people smile… here’s what I wrote about it, I think it’ll resonate with you :)
