We are all different. Thus it is quite possible to get hurt by other people’s behavior and attitudes. This makes us disempowered because our life is controlled by others.
The only time you need to worry is if you hurt others. Here, you are responsible. If others hurt you, they are responsible. How do you avoid the hurt? You are in charge of your thoughts, reactions, and responses. You are hurt by others to the extent of your thoughts, reactions, and responses. If you control your thoughts, reactions, and responses, you control your hurt.
This does not mean you are in denial of your behaviour. You want to be open and learn from guidance and recommendations from others, but not let others hurt you.
