Today we are going to talk about being hit or being insulted by others. Many times people talk about us behind our backs. They say things about us that are not true but they try to harm us or our reputation. People love to gossip, to question our integrity and get angry when we don’t do what they want.
Sometimes people insult us or say things that are not nice. But in order for their attack to be successful, we must believe what they say or get insulted and rattled by it. Things that people say lose all their power when we don’t pay attention to it. That’s why we must have a calm mind.
Remember to think before reacting, and remember that things only have the power that we give them. If we react, then they have been successful in their attack, and they have won valuable space in our mind.
“Remember, it is not enough to be hit or insulted to be harmed, you must believe that you are being harmed. If someone succeeds in provoking you, realize that your mind is complicit in the provocation. … Take a moment before reacting, and you will find it is easier to maintain control.”Epictetus
