When opinions count more than you think

Today you went to the grocery store and these ladies gave you the look of death. They started whispering and giggling, as you passed by you heard them talking about the guy who keeps coming to your apartment. It’s funny how they say that you should get married and stop being promiscuous. The funnier thing is that they have no clue that it’s your brother. In the end, it’s none of their business, yet they would do anything today to see you frown and have sad face.

If you think a bit about it, their attitude shows that they are jealous of you. They wish they had that chance with a man who cares about them and makes them feel good.  Since they can’t have it, they are mad and when they see someone else happy, it’s when they try to do anything to see that happiness being broken into pieces. By keeping that in mind, you save your sanity for the day.

It happens everywhere, at home, at work, even with the social transportation. Someone will whisper something or they will stare at you cos they don’t like the way you look. If you feel offended and uncomfortable, it means that you don’t accept yourself for who you are and what you do. Don’t be afraid to be unique, don’t be afraid to be different. It’s your right and no one can take it away from you.

As for all these opinions, you have power to mute them in your mind. Don’t let them poison you. You know better what is good for you. Love yourself, be yourself, be happy and smile always!

  1. Very true, lots of people judge you by what you are doing or what you wear, and they do not know anything about you. We all are guilty of doing this at some point. Loving and accepting yourself gives you thsi wonderful feeling and you know you are unique and amazing, and the talk behind your back about you seems empty.

    • Thank you Ute for your wise words! This is so true, when we judge someone we are reflecting our behavior back to us. It’s not easy to solve this in one day, it takes time for self improvement.

  2. Love this!
    I always say – I know what I say, don’t say, do & don’t do. I can care less what others think. Those who know me & care about me are the ones that matter anyway.

  3. It’s all so true. I pick up my cleaning person (female) right now because she doesn’t have a car and I watch movies with a good friend (female). Wanna bet the talk that goes around?
