RYS 034: Let Go of The Idea People Should Know Better

In this Episode:


Often we believe our parents and other adults should know better than they do because they are older. Or we think other people should know better because we know a better (kinder, positive, loving) way. One hard truth of life is that just because you know something does not mean everyone does. Another is that just because someone is older does not mean they are emotionally mature to behave better than they do.

• Perpetuating an angry victim identity causes us to spiral downward into a state of constant annoyance, blame, and a lack of self-respect.
• Holding onto “they should have known better” is permitting the people who have hurt us to continue having power over us in the present.
• Freedom comes from accepting that only when people know better on an emotional level do they do better.
