One thing we've learned for sure as we grow is that people will always have an opinion of us.
No matter how hard we trying to be a good person or do the right thing. No matter how much we try to consider other people’s feelings and change our actions to suit another, someone always has something to say about it.
People are judgmental, nosy, and critical but that doesn't mean we have to let it affect us. The worst type of person is the one who just dislikes us because they think they know us, when in reality they don't know us at all.
Because if we let their trash talking get to us, it can really paralyze us with insecurity and uncertainty.
By nature, we want to be liked. We want to be accepted. But, most of the time, we allow our worth to be decided by the people on the sidelines. By people that see snapshots of our life but have no clue what the whole picture looks like.
We let ourselves be rattled by the comments and critiques because we are human. But, if we live our lives trying to make everyone like us or adapt to what other people believe we should be like, we will be in a never-ending cycle of settling.
So yeah, it's going to hurt when someone judges us or says something nasty about us, but their opinion is just that. Theirs. It's not who we are, it's not what we stand for, it's just their idiotic point of view.
Sorry, did I say idiotic? Oops...
But really, no one opinion should make or break us. Because we have a life that we're supposed to be living and be proud of, no matter what anybody has to say.
Just because some girl is bitter that she's not living up to her highest potential doesn't mean she can take us down with her words. Just don't buy into it, don't engage and she can go be miserable somewhere else.
