Where do you get your protein from? Is it healthy to eat this way? Do you get satisfied? So many questions all the time, criticism and a lot of bad talk behind my back. That’s kind of normal for me when telling people about the lifestyle I live.
Does it bother me? No, not really. Maybe when I have a week moment. But in generell not. Because I do understand now why people are talking behind my back and why do they criticize me. And this knowledge makes it so much more easy for me to handle it.
Why do people always ask so many questions?
Well, most people ask questions regarding my lifestyle just because it is new for them. That’s normal because veganism and raw food is not that common jet in most parts of the world. Questions are the fastest and easiest way to get knowledge and that’s why people ask questions.
There are also some people who ask quite provocatively and who do want to race some criticism. For that it is important where criticism comes from and why people do criticize.
What is criticism?
Criticism is just the truth of this person. It’s own truth of the world but this truth doesn’t need to be the truth of the world. Everyone has its own truth and its own view of the world. Some people believe in this others in that. This differs due to age, believes, religion, childhood, experiences, past, etc and it has nothing to do with you. It’s just the way it is.
Just one example. Your parents might have criticize you because you are to messy and your friends has criticized you because you are too tidy. Your friends and parents just have different views on what tidiness is all about due to their age, past and so on. his has nothing to do with you at all.
It’s really important, that you understand, that this has nothing to do with you. You are perfect just the way you are. It’s just all these different views of the world we all have.
Why do people criticize each other?
Most of the time people don’t mean to criticize each other. It’s more or less unconsciously. There are a lot of people who don’ understand and accept that we are all different and have our own view of the world.
If people criticize you they want you to change and believe in their truth of the world. They become annoyed that you are different and they aren’t conscious about that we are all different and that we have different believe systems. They are unconscious.
Conscious people knows that we are all different and have different believe systems and don’t criticize each other because of that- They just understand it.
If you understand that we are all different and you accept it than you will understand that it’s nothing wrong with you. It’s just another view of the world. You are right exactly the way you are. You are good as you are right now. You are just different compared to the people who criticize you. Different doesn’t mean better or worth. It’s just different.
There will be criticism as long as there are unconscious people and different views of the world.
Why do people talk about me?
People talk about you regardless what you are doing. If you wear a blue dress some people will talk, if you wear a green dress others will talk. Regardless what you do there are always people who talk about you. You will never satisfied all people. That’s just the way it is and you can’t change it. If you understand that it will be so much easier for you to handle people who talk about you and it will be easier to live your life the way you want it.
People talk about you because you are different as they are. They talk about you because they want to make themselves believe that they are better than you and that they don’t need to change anything. That’s due to our psyche. She always wants to take the easiest way. As long as we feel good we don’t need to change anything. By talking about you these people want to make themselves feel better. Changes means to make an effort and the human psyche don’t ant to make an effort. It just wants to take the easiest way possible.
People do talk about people and so do I. It’s a normal process and it depends on what you believe in and whats your view of the world. If you believe in veganism you will talk about ”all eaters”. If you are an omnivore you will talk about vegans. Just to make yourself feel better and to make yourself believe that you are doing the right thing.
So again, it has nothing to do with you. It’s just because we are all different and have different believes and because our psyche wants to feel good. These things are just the way they are and if you understand this you will handle criticism and questions in a much better way in the future.
Why do we take criticism so heavy?
we humans always want to belong. That’s important for our surviving so it is a very deep and basic need. If people criticize us we do believe that we don’t belong. But that’s not true. We do belong to several groups and to others we don’t. Make it easier for yourself and choose the groups you want to belong to. If you are someone who loves animals you won’t being to the group who like to kill animals. You cannot belong to all groups. So choose your groups carefully.
This knowledge and understanding helped me a lot to handle criticism and questions much better. I do understand now that everyone is on its own journey here on earth and I do accept that.
