Worrying about what others think of you, what you do and how you choose to live your life has nothing to do with you. If you know who you are, walking in your purpose and living life for you it won’t matter what others say about you. You become unbothered by them.
The trouble is when you allow others opinions of you, for you and over your life to control you. If this is you, do you know what this means? It means you are unsure of who you are, don’t know your purpose and living your life to please people.
When you live your life for other people you never (which is a very strong word) please them. There will always be something with them. Something more they want from you, more they want you to do to benefit them. Don’t you know if you live your life for others you’ll be on a constant rollercoaster? One minute you’re up and the next minute you’re down. How about choosing your happiness over theirs because chances are you won’t be able to make them happy no matter what you do.
Trying to live up to others expectations will stress you out! It’s depressing. If you find yourself in a constant battle with depression, anxiety, worrying, restless nights, isolation, energy depleted, attitude is on 1000, your mood is all cross the place, you notice people run the other way when they see you coming, perhaps people in your own household are tiptoeing around you and afraid to approach you or have a conversation because they don’t know how you will react. Perhaps you wonder why people ghost you and don’t want to be bothered. Even they get tired of showing up and implementing change to deal with you and your sour patches. The signs are there for you to stop being a poisoner to people and what they want. There is a reason and a solution to the madness.
Aren’t you tired of being someone’s puppet?
