Understanding Overcompensation

People tend to overcompensate for their supposed deficiencies.

If I act like a know it all… it’s because I’m afraid I’m not smart enough.

If I act like a bully… it’s because I’m afraid I’m not strong enough.

If I act like I’m better than you… it’s because I’m afraid I’m not good enough.

Next time you feel yourself getting aggravated with someone for acting like this, remember that they are afraid & pray for them rather than getting angry or feeling hurt by them.

The goal for today: be understanding!

Have a great day everybody!
