Why You Must Reclaim Your Dignity

Published

on

Everybody has a right to dignity, honor, or self-respect regardless of his social or economic status. Most of us think that dignity or respect is only a right for the rich, talented, or the famous. However, this belief is wrong because it results in poor self-esteem and failure to achieve big things.

If you think you do not deserve respect, then no one will respect you because people mostly respect individuals with high self-esteem. Therefore, you should never feel inferior just because you lack money, trendy things, or other things that the society thinks you must have. Always feel worthy and demand people to respect you despite your current circumstances, because a strong sense of self-worth will bring you many advantages.

If you feel worthless, you will attract people who feel worthless, and it will also be hard for you to take risks or indulge in activities that require you to believe in yourself. However, when you reclaim your dignity and feel worthy, you attract confident people. Besides this, many individuals will want to be part of your life because you will be an inspirational source to them. They will be amazed and attracted by how confident you are despite the fact that you are neither famous nor wealthy.

Moreover, if you reclaim your dignity, you will never care what people say or think about you because you will have high self-esteem. For this reason, you will always believe that you have the ability to handle anything without needing approval.

Therefore, reclaim your dignity and always feel that you deserve respect because you are and you will be an important person in the society. Also, believe that you deserve respect because you are unique, talented, and a valuable individual. Once you believe that you deserve respect, you will have high self-esteem and nothing will hinder you from achieving what you want because you will always believe in yourself.

    Spot on. Society tends to treat you how you treat yourself. The cat that keeps clean is let into the house by the same farmer that keeps the pig in the pens. Yoruba proverb 🙂

      Dignity cannot be granted by the society, you are responsible for providing yourself a sense of self-worth

    The power of the declaration lies in its insistence that human rights are predicated on the dignity of the person

      True, every individual’s dignity is the foundation of human rights. The fact that people respect themselves forces states to formulate a number of human rights that protect their citizens.

Why Ego is the Main Source of Anger and Envy (Ego Part 2)

Published

on

After realizing that the ego impedes personal growth, I decided to study and contemplate about it. It then dawned on me that the ego is our enemy because it’s the primary source of anger and envy.

The ego as I defined in the article, The Era of the Ego and the Destruction of Intuition, is a feeling of self-importance. The ego makes you believe you are more important than other members of the society and, therefore, you must be heard, respected, admired, and followed. It makes you believe that you are always right and everybody else is wrong.

The ego can result in you being angered by petty issues. For instance, it can make you outraged by any action or word that appears to disrespect you. Insults (even from kids), and petty jokes will make you angry if you are egoistic. You’ll even get mad when people ignore you or argue with you because the ego believes you deserve admiration and no one must argue against your beliefs because you are always right.

Anger arises when you misinterpret things. The ego will thus make you prone to anger since it’s the King of misinterpretation. For instance, if an individual accidentally steps on your foot, the ego will believe it was intentional hence making you angry.

Besides causing anger, the ego also causes envy. You become envious when you feel resentful when other people progress, succeed, or attain something you don’t have.

The ego causes envy because it hates to see others appear more important than you. If your neighbor succeeds or buys something you believe makes her more important than you, the ego feels bad because your neighbor’s progress makes it feel inferior or less important. The ego always wants you to be ahead of everybody so that you become the most important person. It’s hurt when others progress faster than you and appear more important hence making you feel envious.

For this reason, the next time you feel angry or envious, realize that it’s the ego causing these feelings. Then separate yourself from the ego and know that it’s an illusion since it isn’t your true self. Your true self is an extension of Infinite Intelligence/Cosmic Consciousness, and it never gets angry because it interprets everything positively. Moreover, it’s never envious because it understands that we are all connected and we must rejoice in others’ success.

6 Unique Ways to Deal with Anxiety

Published

on

I used to suffer from chronic anxiety because I worried about everything. Luckily, I discovered how to eradicate this gnawing feeling.

Anxiety is mainly defined as ‘feelings of tension or worry about a future outcome.’ Many people today are anxious about everything. In the article, ‘The Era of Anxiety and the Destruction of Intuition,’ I described the factors that make modern society anxious.

Anyway, anxiety has many side-effects. It causes sleep problems, digestive disorders, and prevents us from having a clear mind. For this reason, you must strive to get rid of anxious thoughts whenever they attack you.

Here are 6 ways you can deal with anxious thoughts:

1.Meditate on Infinite Intelligence

Think about the power that created the universe. Think about its greatness and willingness to support life. Realize that it exists in all life forms including you, and therefore, you have nothing to worry about if the power that created the universe exists within you.

2.Watch Nature Documentaries

Watching nature documentaries makes you shift from worrying, to thinking about the wonders of the universe. They are my best treatment for anxiety.

Research reveals that they eradicate anxious thoughts because they increase positive emotions. Besides this, they evoke feelings of awe which studies reveal are a good treatment for anxiety

3.Sing a Song of Praise

I started singing songs of praise to Infinite Intelligence/God after realizing that they eradicate anxiety. Anxiety mainly attacks you when you focus too much on yourself. The songs of praise thus eliminate anxiety as they make you focus on Infinite Intelligence.

N/B – I used to be against songs of praise because I believed there is no need to praise God. However, I embraced them after realizing that God has to be praised. If we praise our friends, families, and strangers for their accomplishments, why can’t we praise God for what ‘he’ has done?

“Were I a nightingale, I would act the part of a nightingale; were I a swan, the part of a swan, but since I am a reasonable creature, it is my duty to praise God.”Epictetus, Stoic Philosopher.

4.Realize that You Can Die At Any Moment

Knowing this fact about death enables you to realize that you might be worrying about a future that might arrive when you are dead. It makes you live in the moment and stop worrying about an unguaranteed future.

5.Realize That Anxiety is Bad for You

Know that anxiety is bad for you as it causes increased blood pressure, breathing problems, digestive disorders, and erectile dysfunction (for men). It also reduces productivity, and destroys your intuitive abilities.

Being conscious of the side effects of anxiety will enable you to quickly recognize and ignore anxious thoughts hence preventing you from succumbing to anxiety.

6..Try Medical Marijuana

I used to be against marijuana, but I adopted a positive attitude towards it after realizing that most ancient cultures involved it in their religious practices. Ancient cultures realized its importance on our mental health.

Today, studies have realized that marijuana temporarily eliminates anxious thoughts as it makes individuals feel calm. It also relieves the symptoms of anxiety by making individuals think everything is okay.

N/B – However, you must only use marijuana when free because it will reduce your productivity.

Apart from the above methods, I believe there are many other ways to deal with anxious thoughts. You are free to mention them in the comment box below:
