Have you ever been wrong? Do you have faults? Of course you do! Well, hopefully you do. If not, then you may want to stop reading here because this is about people like you. On second thought, keep reading so that readers can get your opinion too.
No one is perfect. Everyone has flaws and everyone is wrong sometimes. So why does it seem that only a small number of people can see their own faults?
These people either believe that they are right all the time, or they justify their actions in order to place the blame elsewhere.
“You cannot change what you refuse to confront.”
Have you ever known someone to be absolutely wrong about something, yet they refuse to see it? This can be applicable in both words and actions.
Their perspective on a specific situation could be skewed, but they’re not willing to listen to others. They may treat others badly, but regularly justify it in any way possible. They may cheat and take from others, but have convinced themselves that they are owed. The list could go on and on.
Whatever they do that is wrong, the one thing we know is that we can’t change people. In order for a person to change, they must be willing and ready to do so on their own.
But, what if they can’t even see what they’re doing wrong? What if everything they do is right and justified in their own eyes? How then will they ever change? Is it even possible?
A person not willing to see their own faults wouldn’t be a big deal if it only effected them. But when others are involved and are personally effected by it, then it does become an issue?
In those situations what do you do? Wait and see? Try using reverse psychology? Cry and plead with them? Make them believe that the change is their idea? Change ourselves, hoping that in return they will change also?
Dealing with someone like this can be difficult and frustrating for anyone, no matter what the situation may be.
How do you handle people who refuse to see their own faults? Or those who justify every one of their actions, regardless of how wrong they may be?
