When someone calls you out on your bullshit there are two ways to respond:
- You can take it personally and deny it to maintain your own self-image
- You can reflect and do some critical self-analysis
I like many others, tend towards the former because how dare anyone question my character. I am not like most people, I know why I believe what I believe, and do what I do. All of it is good, perhaps the best.
But I’m trying to be better; more humble, more self-aware. And maybe – just maybe – our characters are not always as consistent as we think they are.
