What if I told you that you have an extremely powerful and useful superpower? More powerful than being able to read someone’s mind and more useful than being invisible. Would you believe me? Well it’s quite true, we all possess the power to change someone’s life – whether it’s how they think, behave or speak, whether it’s someone we grew up with or someone we just met, we have the power to change that.
Ever noticed how magically we adopt and adapt to how our favourite people act, speak and think? They change us, sometimes without trying and sometimes they intend to. We don’t quite notice that we have the power to change someone’s life because we are too focussed on those impacting our lives negatively and those impacting it positively. This is why it is important that we watch what we say and how we act around those we care about because people tend to remember the mean things we say and bad things we do and those things may change the way they see themselves and/or how they feel about us from then on.
When someone we like constantly says mean, unnecessary remarks about how we dress or how we look, that changes how we see ourselves – self-confidence slowly fades away. Now you could either choose to change someone’s life for the best or the worst. You could do something today that would hurt someone you care about for the rest of their life; your negative aura easily brushes off to those around you and your attitude can be easily transferred like energy.
Keep your jokes clear, bearing in mind that sensitive people don’t have ‘Sensitive’ written on their foreheads. Use sarcasm to those that will get it because those that don’t will misinterpret it and catch feelings as easy as I catch a cold these days.
Make people feel good about themselves and remind them how much they matter to you – if they do. Gas them up when they are doing great and when they are going through a rough patch, be there for them. Little gestures make a huge difference. Also, use your superpower on yourself too, be a good person for yourself – speak kindly to yourself and others, only make room for positive thoughts and instil those positive thoughts to those that you care about too. Now that you know about your superpower, choose to use it wisely.
Goodbye for now
