People will say negative things about you- you can choose to let it define you, confine you, outshine you or you choose to move on and leave it behind. No matter what is said, don’t let it change your inner climate. No one can hurt your feelings or depress you other than what you allow on the inside. What you tell yourself everyday is what truly counts! Refuse to let negative and toxic people rent a space in your heart. The less you respond to negative people, the more peaceful your life will be. Do not allow other people’s limited perception of you define you and refuse to make their opinion a script in your thinking pattern. People will not always appreciate the good you do but will put you down for the one mistake you make. Rise above their criticisms and stay strong. Don’t amplify that mistake. Remember, that you made a mistake doesn’t mean your life is a mistake. People who are secure in themselves don’t put others down; they lift them up.
