Part of this question was “How does other people’s opinion affect me?” That’s an easy answer. It doesn’t. The only opinion that matters to me is mine. Period. What I think of me is the only thing that matters.
Yes people have their opinions of me and that’s fine but it does not influence how I live my life, what I think, or what I do.
Now that doesn’t mean that I don’t have insecurities. I do. I have several. But those are demons I struggle with within myself and are not influenced by the opinions of others. That may seem odd to you reading this but it’s true. Allow me to explain. I am the hardest person on me. Always have been. Always will be.
That being said, I don’t care what others opinions are of me. If you like me, cool. If you love me, great. If you don’t like me, I’m ok with that.
Considering all of that, I would have to say that at times my authenticity may hinder some of my relationships. Because I don’t care what people think I speak my truth and that’s not always a popular opinion depending on who the audience is. I’m ok with that too. While I never intend to hurt another’s feelings with my truth and will always try to use kind words there have been times when other’s are offended by my truth. Do I care? Sometimes. But never enough to change my truth.
I am who I am. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. I’m ok with who I am and what my truth is at any given moment.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
