Be yourself , be strong and take charge of your emotions and thoughts . Take your stand, speak up and don’t let yourself down for any reason .
Throughout your lifetime, some people will discredit you, disrespect you and treat you poorly for no apparent reason . Don’t allow that consume you by trying to change to please them or win their approval. And don’t make any space in your heart to hate them either .
You don’t have control over what others think about you, but you do have control over how you decide to internalize their opinions. Leave them to their own judgments so long as your conscience judge you right .
Let people love you for who you are, and not for who they want you to be. Better still, they can walk away if they choose. They can’t harm you either way; it’s their understanding that might be faulty, not yours because some of them can never find anything good in you no matter how hard you try to please them; Which could be born out of jealousy , hatred or manipulative tendencies in order to derail you.
Constructive Criticisms are allowed, but the power to make the best of such criticisms in order to improve you, lies in your hands.
