Why would you allow what people think of you to achieve power over your thoughts?
Is their judgment more meaningful than what you think of yourself?
Do not be a victim to their advice unless you ask for it. Some people do have your best interest at heart and have excellent opinions to give. You should know the difference.
Be confident in your thoughts and decisions. You do not require validation from anyone but yourself. You are always in control. If you’re not, get a handle on it.
Confidence should be a silent inner strength but insecurities stand out with a sign. People feed on those insecurities. Never apologize for being you and real.
In life we will be criticized, judged, and shamed but, remember their opinions are not facts. They’re not in your shoes and have no clue of what storms you’ve been through or are fighting right now. Do not allow your inner voice to drown.
Love your decisions and learn from the mistakes. We’re all awkward and imperfect in different areas and that’s what makes us original.
You’re good enough, worthy, and magnificent. Now, go out and prove it!
