If what we're saying and doing is always receiving positive feedback then something isn't right.
We expect positive feedback, especially with social media.
Post a photo - like
Post a piece of writing - like
Post a video - like, like
The power does not live in the likes.
It's been proven that our brains release dopamine when someone "likes" something we post - we've become addicted to it.
But what about when someone doesn't like what we say or do --- or even downright disagrees with it?
Well, you take it as an opportunity for growth. You accept it as a challenge of strength; you acknowledge you are on the right path.
Often it isn't even about you or what you believe; it's a trigger that exposes their wounds and makes them uncomfortable, you just happen to get caught in the line of fire.
In a world of instant gratification it can be difficult to hear the naysayers nay say, but I promise that it is a beautiful teacher here to guide us closer to the infinite potential that lives on the inside.
