I am not sure if you have been the kind of person who cared what someone else thought about them. I know I am guilty of being this kind of person at some point in my life. I believe the only reason why we let it affect us, is we believe on some level of what is being said to be true.
When people lie on us, we tend to not give it energy. For an example, I can say that you’re not a good friend. You would pay me no mind, because you know you’re an excellent friend. When people tell our hidden truths about us to our face, we become upset and dwell on what was said. For an example, I can tell you that you’re never going to start your own clothing line, because you do not have what it takes. You will believe what I said, because you already told yourself in secret that you did not have what it takes to start your clothing business.
You see, negative words are just that. We give them life when we decide to believe what is being said about us.
I’ve come up with 4 ways to kick the negative comments to the curb and to focus in on what you feel to be true about yourself. Keep reading to discover what those 4 tactics would be!
- Understand, sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt you: They are just words and they will not kill nor cause harm to your life, if you do not let them.
- The only opinion about you that matters, is what you think about you: Learn to be okay with you. Learn to look yourself in the mirror and be like, “damn, I am fine.”
- You do not need anyone to support your dream/goals, but you: If you only have yourself to support your idea/dream, that’s all you need. Truth be told, when things go bad or not as planned in your business, it is you that has to pick up the pieces and come up with a master plan…not your supporters. Learn to be your own cheerleader. It will help when or if you don’t have the support.
- You only get one life to live; stop letting people kill your vibe: You only get one life on this earth. Why spend it sad and depressed because someone did not say nice things about you? Who cares! It is their loss anyhow for not being in your presence.
These are my top 4 tactics on how to stop letting the negative comments from others affect how I view myself.
If I missed anything, make sure to let me know in the comments!
