It always seems like a good idea to be a better person – until you actually try.
I assumed that doing this love challenge would make me a better person.
However, I never anticipated any side effects — let alone this particular one.
We’ll call it the:
“Do they think I’m a good person?” syndrome
In a nutshell, there are certain people whose opinions I actually respect.
When these people discover that I’m doing a love challenge, I always have the same thought(s):
“Do they think I’m a good person?”
“I wonder if they think I’m a good person”.
I find these thoughts to be problematic because:
- It doesn’t necessarily make me feel good if people think i’m a good person.
- It also doesn’t necessarily make me feel bad if people think that I’m a bad person.
So why do I keep wondering if people think I’m a good person when they hear about this love challenge?
I’m not entirely sure…but I hope to find out.
- Do you care what people think of you? How come?
- What would you tell a person struggling with self-acceptance?
- What’s a loving thing somebody has done for you recently?
