I wish I could tell you the exact moment that my understanding shifted, but unfortunately, it didn’t just hit me like a thunderbolt one day.
The truth slipped into my awareness over a good few years: the realisation that no matter what I do or say, some will like me and some won’t, and ultimately their opinion, either way, doesn’t define me or dictate how I feel about myself.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still not immune to the comments of those who's opinion I value, but I no longer hang my self-esteem on the approval of others.
I still like being liked, but the judgement of others no longer dictates how I judge myself.
So, apologies if this is old news to some, but at some point, it was breaking news to me: it doesn’t matter what other people think of you.
It really doesn’t.
