Sometimes she let herself be bothered by other people’s unkind deeds or words. She promised to remember that the only opinion that mattered was her own. – Queenisms™
We’ve both allowed ourselves to feel like victims of judgmental looks and words from strangers, family and friends. We finally made the choice to not take the world so personally. When we realized that no one could hurt our feelings unless we let them – we decided not to let them. Ok, we know it’s harder than it sounds but not impossible. It requires a bit of practice and an occasional phone call to a trusted and supportive friend but the freedom of letting go of other’s nastiness is so worth it. Truly, the only opinion of you that should matter is your own.
