Take NO prisoners!
It’s up to us what we take in and believe.
We all have a right to our opinions, suggestions, advice, etc. Even if it is unsolicited by us.
People can say whatever the hell they want, and sometimes that is unfortunate for us.
It is up to Us to determine if we are going to take that advice; unsolicited or not, insults, opinions in and make it so.
It’s a gift to be able to listen and take it all in, allow others their say and not be infected, effected or affective by their words; WOW…Lots of energy going on behind words. The words, we spit out them out have a ton of power, and we must remember; the boom-a-rang is on its way back.
Words can make or break us if we are not grounded or we don’t trust in who we are.
It is only when we are unsure and insecure about ourselves that another’s words, opinions, and beliefs can hold us, prisoner.
We have all been there reviewing in our minds something someone said, feeling the energy rise up within either positive or negative depending on what we believed was offered.
The weight of other’s advice, thoughts, etc. can become a source of contention for us. It can suppress us from living our life because our entire being (our personality, our thoughts, our actions) can be controlled by an idealized standard of what people want to see or believe to be true. The truth is; The truth is very subjective because the truth is personal to each of us. We all have our OWN truth.
When we become so concerned with other people’s opinion of us, we can forget the most important opinion that matters, and that is our own.
Once we give up catering to other people’s opinion and thoughts, we will find out who we are, and that freedom will be like taking a breath for the first time. The breath is the key, the exhale is the answer, the release.
The next time you don’t like, or understand what is being said; Pause, take a deep breath in and smile within. Because YOU got this. You are the warden of your own mind. And on the outbreathe, say’ “You may be right” everybody gains their own perspective.
“Seeing is not believing; believing is seeing. You see things not as they are, but as you are.” —Eric Butterworth”
