Be Sensitive II, Contributed By @Olawalium

in life •  last month

…continued… from part 1


There are so many people that will just hate you without a reason like I mentioned earlier, so you need to guard your heart. There would be so many bitter people that will just be indifferent to your success. They just don’t see the fuzz about the things you are excited about because they want to belittle every single achievement you have made so far. They feel embittered that you are enjoying the things they wish they can enjoy or they feel they are entitled too.

In my language, there is another adage that says, ”Ote eni ko kin pa odu oya” meaning ”You can never praise the achievement of someone you don’t like”. It is only when you are not at peace with someone that you will belittle their achievements. Imagine the person buying a nice car to suit his or her taste and instead of rejoicing with the person, your detractors will find something to drag down the enthusiasm. ”Oh, you mean that little car?” ”Is that the colour he or she is supposed to paint that car?” ”That car doesn’t even fit him or her at all. He or she doesn’t even know what fits” and so on.


Regardless of those that are around you, and even the seemingly distractions around you, make sure you maintain your focus. There will always be people around you that will want to oppose you or drag you down and let that be your motivation every time so you won’t drop your standard and be dragged down. Silence their ‘boos’ with more achievement so much that their criticism would be silenced amidst the applause.

Remember, no one can stop you if you don’t stop yourself. Others can stop you temporarily but only you can do it permanently.

Life will either bless you or bury you. It is not what others say about you that matters but what you say to yourself when they are done talking.


Thank you for your time.

Everyone is entitled to this pleasure, who is conscious of his duty, honestly performs his actions and moves harder towards his goal. Although not all that easy, but continuous effort is nothing impossible with hard work. The concept of life is that the person who first suffers, enjoys the pleasures later, but will not understand this thing which will make the atmosphere. When the number of critics starts moving around us, then it should be understood that we are moving on the right path though These critics do not need to answer because our accomplishments are the answer for them.
Thank you friend @olawalium


Absolutely, my friend. We should allow our achievements to do the talking and be sensitive with those we allow into our space. Like I said earlier, being sensitive is not the same as being suspicious.

There would be so many bitter people that will just be indifferent to your success.

Life is full of wickedness so it is no doubt seeing all those things, we have to remember that not all people will love us, not all that laugh with us wish us success. Like this adage in my locality, ' a lot of lizards have their stomach lied flat on the ground but who knows the one that is having stomachache. We really need to be be careful and be sensitive just like you have said to things and people around us. God bless you for this creative thinking.


I am glad you enjoyed it and thanks for your insightful comment too. Indeed, most lizards lie down and it is hard to tell which of them is having a stomach upset; meaning it is hard to know the hidden thoughts in people's hearts, especially those who pretend to like you and those who smiles at you.
