Opinions matter; YOUR OWN. Opinions are not facts, they are not the truth, they are someone else’s trumped-up version, vision or idea about what is best.
We all have opinions and always will, it is how most of us navigate life through the eyes and words of other people, often forgetting to take our own advice thinking someone else has the golden ticket of what is right for us
How we receive opinions is up to us because people are not going to stop dishing advice out, they can’t help themselves, it is the way we have been coded from the get-go.
If we understand that MOST people give their opinions with good intentions.
Your sense of self is NOT defined by the good opinions of others and that means the
shitty ones too.
NOBODY knows what path you are on, nor do they have a crystal ball of truth.
Take your own guidance because you definitely won’t please someone.
Opinions need to be taken and listen to with a grain of salt, the one you throw over your shoulder.
Taking your own opinion is always the best and highest choice.
And for peets sake; Don’t take anything personally.
The only opinion or advice that matters is the one you settle on…Inject self-trust!
Each day be at peace in your own direction, and when someone gives you their advice or opinions; smile and politely say, ‘thank you,’ you may be right.
“How would your life be different if… You stopped allowing other people to dilute or poison your day with their words or opinions? Let today be the day… You stand strong in the truth of your beauty and journey through your day without attachment to the validation of others.”― Steve Maraboli
