What do you do when someone says: you’re shit?
Do you believe it? Do you deny it? Do you defend yourself? It’s easy to get destroyed when we don’t know our value. When we rely on what other people say. When we believe other people are always right.
I’ve been believing in what others said about me for a long time. It reasonated in my mind just because I let it to be. I made myself suffer just because I didn’t believe they could simply be wrong.
The only thing we don’t know is that they give a damn on who we really are. They judge us on the basis of meeting their expectations. Of fullfiling their needs. Of giving them what they want.
We feel safe when other people accept us. And we feel destroyed when other people reject us. Why do we depend on them while we are perfectly able to depend uniquely on ourselves?
We ask for approvals because we believe the majority is always right.
The funniest thing is that, how the history already proved, when the majority is convinced of being right it’s most probably they are wrong.
When we have a clear vision of why we are doing something or why we are the way we are then it’s easy to smile when someone says we’re shit. It’s easy to laugh when someone says we’re asshols. It’s easy to step back and say: I don’t care what you all think about me.
Maybe it’s time to detach from what others think about us and find out what we think about ourselves.
Have a wonderful day!
