Everyone has opinions about the way that things should be, and that’s okay.
But you should never feel that your life and your choices are at the mercy of other people’s opinions.
As you’re reading this, you can probably think of at least a few people who have an opinion about who you should be or what you should do with your life.
Sometimes these opinions are negative, and sometimes they are positive. But one thing is certain…
These opinions have nothing to do with who you really are.
They simply represent people who are realising their own perception of you. At times, these opinions can be positive.
But if they aren’t a genuine representation of who you honestly believe that you are, they can be a hindrance towards you becoming your best self.
Imitation has never caused anyone to become great. Even if you’re imitating someone you admire and respect, you’re never going to be as good at being someone else as you can be at being yourself.
You’re not responsible for becoming anybody other than the person you want to be, and that’s a decision you, and only you, can make.
You’re also not responsible for other people’s opinions or perceptions of you, whether those opinions and perceptions are good or bad.
The only thing you’re responsible for is being true to yourself and who you know yourself to be.
No matter who you become, for better or worse, somebody somewhere is always going to have a negative opinion about it.
That’s not your problem, it’s their problem, and it’s their responsibility…
so lets leave it at that
