Human relations or power struggle?

“Human relations or power struggle?” was written by guest contributor, Babajide Faseyi.

His message was 3 lines long so I have to respond in 2 lines. She messaged me 5 minutes ago so I have to wait 10 minutes before I respond. These are the types of calculations people do in their minds when it comes down to basic relations with another person.

If I respond in more than 3 lines I am going to look desperate. If I don’t wait 10 minutes before I respond I am going to look desperate. These are the types of calculations people do in their minds rather than simply expressing who they truly are.

There is a place inside of us that knows how to express ourselves without having to negotiate like an army general as if human relations are supposed to be some sort of battlefield.

There is a place inside of us that wants to be free and to express ourselves without fear of whether we will be accepted or not for who we truly are inside of our heart of hearts.

Whenever life gives you the wonderful opportunity to communicate with another human being, recognize the amazing privilege you have been given and communicate as sincerely as you can. Whenever you go to communicate, remember that the grass beneath your feet as well as the trees and the clouds in the sky are also listening to you, so let all of life be happy with your honest and heart-felt communications.

Blessings, Babjide

    well not long ago i did the same. Expressed myself very sincerely without holding back anything atleast before my family, friends and my love. And i was proud of it. But A time came when i faced rejection, resistance and repulsion from everyone around me just because i was not calculative and expressed every bit of me. then i had to change and now i keep it for God- my truth and details of what i feel. IS it really possible to keep expressing yourself without getting hurt or judged or rejected??
    i love the website and things work when i follow what is directed and discussed here. Can you help me with my question

    Hi Pratiksha- when we feel rejected it helps to realize that the rejection is a projection of something inside of US. We expect to be rejected, or abandoned or looked down on and this creates this experience in our life.

    It isn’t uncommon to experience rejection after changing our way of being. If you are practicing new habits and patterns of thought, sometimes we feel uncertain about how these will be received…which leads to people in our reality treating us in a questionable manner.

    To answer your question, it is totally possible to express yourself fully without getting hurt. The trick is stop caring about the reaction of the other people. When we are no longer worried about how other people react, their reactions become non-offensive. When we are no longer worried about being rejected or hurt, we no longer focus on being rejected or hurt and these aspects of our reality fade out of the picture<3
