Opinions… Do they matter?
Do you care about the opinions others may have of you?
Do you feel like you’re open 24 hours for someone to give you their opinion of YOUR life?
I know a lot of us get caught up in the opinions of others or what people may think of us. This leads to the opinion making an impact on how we live.
We start analyzing the opinion. We start comparing. Doubting decisions that we’ve made. Driving ourselves crazy…. for no reason. Why?
I used to be like this because I wanted to appease EVERYONE. I realized (after some time)nothing else mattered, but what I thought and what I wanted to do. If I’m okay with my decisions, why does the opinions of others matter?
I think people get caught up with the “outside world” and what they are “supposed” to look like. But what are we “supposed” to look like? What are we supposed to act like? How are we to raise our kids? Treat our husbands/wives, partners?
I have my husband to thank for bringing me to reality years ago. Showing me that an opinion is just an opinion. He would tell me over and over again, “who cares what anyone else thinks.”
I think a lot of us have said this time and time again, but get caught up of trying to show others what we are doing versus showing others who we really are.
It took me time to realize that I was happy doing what I wanted to do without comparing. Without caring about the opinions of others. Yes, I still listened to the opinions, but their opinion did not dictate my life or the life of my family.
You are BE*YOU*TIFUL! Be who you want to be. Be who you are.
Until next time
