You have no control of what other people think about you.
The only control that you have is over yourself, and how you respond.
You responsibility is not to make others happy but to be yourself fully.
People’s opinions of you reflect more about themselves than about you. So don’t take it personally. Just because they judge you a certain way, or have a negative opinion of you, doesn’t mean it’s true.
It’s just their opinion. It’s their perception, and perception is not reality.
Our perception is a projection based on our current level of consciousness which is determined by our conditioning and experiences.
So make peace with who you are, and who you aren’t. The more you love and accept yourself, the less you will seek it from others.
What other people think about you is none of your business. And whether right or wrong, they have a right to their opinion.
Nothing and no one is worth your freedom.
So make a choice to take full responsibility for your happiness. No one has the power over you unless you give it to them.
No one has the power to make you feel a certain way unless you allow it.
In order to be truly free, choose to unhook yourself from the opinions of other people, BOTH negative and positive.
You do not need to defend yourself from other’s projections or opinions. Focus on yourself and your own inner truth.
Instead of convincing someone who doesn’t see you clearly of who you are, simply let how you live your life be your response.
When you are committed to living a purpose bigger than yourself, you find that you don’t have the time or energy to fixate on the petty negative opinions of people in your life. You are too busy playing a bigger game.
So when people think or speak negatively about you, rather than attacking back, simply respond with love.
Don’t let their smallness bring you down to that level.
Love offers no opportunity for a fight or any sort of opposition.
Those that judge you, attack you and hate you are the ones most in need of your love.
They are angels in disguise giving you the gift of opening your heart wider and living love more boldly.
Step up, love bigger and bless them.
