This is about a feedback on my earlier post “Blogger anonymous”
The feedback goes like this –
Here is my take on this, You probably should answer these questions for yourself.
-Why do I think readers may get biased? Where did I get this idea from?
-When I read a blog, do I get biased based on gender, nationality etc…?
-Am I being judgmental here?
-Is there a self esteem issue here?
-Do I like/love myself enough to talk about myself ?
Don’t take this wrong. Just take a look at the famous quote from Eric Hoffer –
No matter what our achievements might be, we think well of ourselves only in rare moments. We need people to bear witness against our inner judge, who keeps book on our shortcomings and transgressions. We need people to convince us that we are not as bad as we think we are.
There is nothing right or wrong here – just views based on what we think….
For some, it is so natural that they can send a strong feedback and also make the other person get the right sense of it. In the recent past, this was one of those inputs which made me think and introspect.
We can count ourselves “blessed” – if we have the right people around us, who make us introspect.
I am “blessed” 🙂
