Criticism and the Rhetoric of Self-pity

July 3, 2015

I encounter people all the time who don’t like my opinions, beliefs, values, behavior, religiosity and/ or other ways I conduct my life. If I allowed myself to claim victimization in an effort to create pity for myself I’d soon be paranoid. :). I’d soon be claiming that I was a victim of some sort of ‘anti-something’ geared at a perceived class.

There is nothing necessarily bad about some one challenging your ways or beliefs; this is how society orders itself and regulates change. Just my opinion, but people need to stop feeling so sensitive about criticism. Accepting challenges of life leads to growth and self worth. Crying victimization each time challenges are presented leads to stagnation and self pity. In my opinion: ‘Just Get Over It’.
