One of the bitter truths of life is that we are constantly tearing ourselves apart because of people who have yet to step in our shoes. And we don’t even realize that if they were, indeed, to step in our shoes, they’d fall the first step.
So I ask you this: why are you thinking so much about what others think of you?
Maybe it’s because you do not feel yourself good enough to get the job done. You want some one to cheer you along. Someone to encourage you. Maybe it’s because you are not doing it for yourself, but for others’ approval. If that is so, then you will die inside whenever they reject you. Because they will. Sooner or later.
Haters will see you walk on water and say it’s because you can’t swim.
Accept this and move on.
Do your thing. Focus on what you want to do, and how is that going to improve your life.
You are never going to reach your goal if you stop for every single person who doesn’t believe in you.
Better yet, you can use their doubts towards you as fuel. You can use their criticism to motivate you to accomplish your goal. It’s proof that you MUST do it. Because they don’t believe in your.
And the funny thing is: people will tell you that you can’t do it, and after they’ve seen you do it, they will tell you that it was easy. Too easy.
Haters hate you because they don’t want to spend time hating themselves.
Keep that in mind next time you feel like wanting someone’s approval.
