How to deal with someone who is intimidating you Chat for free no registration
To err is human, so when we never see someone err then they seem pretty inhuman (and therefore, probably intimidating).When I was a part of my high school crew team, I often found myself intimidated by the older rowers. This covers the spectrum from higher ups at work, love interests, people we don't know at parties, popular people from school or the office, even celebrities. Often people we look up to (or those who we just don't know who seem cool) can bring up feelings we harbor about ourselves that we are not good enough, smart enough, interesting enough. We are all made from the same source and the truth is -- and this is repeated in many spiritual scriptures "we are all special and we are all not special." We are all equal, my friends. So, yeah, I'm a weak, imperfect person." Even wolves get scared! We are also beautifully different from one another, too -- which means all of us have some unique value and flavor to add to a conversation or social setting. Here are some reasons why other people should not intimidate you: 1. The fear of others is generated within us, not by the person in question. This is because we fear being rejected or losing the relationship, she said.“The stakes are higher with people you care deeply about, so expressing a difference or a preference can more intimidating because the risk of loss is higher.”“[I]ntimidation, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder,” said Diann Wingert, LCSW, BCD, a therapist and coach with a private practice in Pasadena, Calif.
This doesn’t necessarily apply to someone like a boss, but maybe a person you’ve been intrigued by and deemed “too cool” for you to be with (I have done this many times).When you get any opportunity to see them for more than a brief moment, take it. Intimidation a lot of times can stem from our belief that somebody is perfect.When we have limited communication with somebody, we don’t always get the chance to see them mess up. The opportunities are abundant when you stop allowing fear to get the better of you. You might make a new friend, a new career connection or get a date!
