you see everything around you as a potential threat to your status or
security, being confrontational becomes a habit. |
If personal self esteem depends on how you stack up against others you may find yourself in a constant state of competition, where you constantly judge others. Measuring yourself against others can lead to distaste of anything that does not meet your impossibly high standards. If you find yourself in this state, life may be lonely as you have barricaded yourself against intimacy or connection.
The first step to reversing isolation is to accept yourself, as is, and stop trying to one up everyone else. When you release distaste, you make room for love and joy and these options become you birthright.
