Every day, we have conversations in our head and justify them through our perception and response. –
“What are they saying about me?”
“They’re judging me.”
“They think this about me.”
“No one likes me.”
“I’m not valuable.”
“They don’t want me here.”
“I bet they think I’m ____.”
That’s all in your head, stemming from an insecurity in Self and a need for approval/validation.
While there are always reasons to be mindful of repeating characteristics from trusted voices, as we are consistently and constantly on the journey of continued growth and self-awareness… understand:
Most people don’t care as much as you think. They’re busy thinking and internalizing their own conversation of self-worth.
And also remember that it’s most often those doing the LEAST with their lives that are the ones who have the MOST to say about what you should do with yours.
So take people’s opinions with a grain of salt. Just because someone believes something to be true about you doesn’t mean it is. It’s up to you as to what you believe about your self and your potential.
You have full permission to be whoever the hell you want to be, so you might as well go big and become the greatest version of yourself….. whoever you see that being.
