So much of our anxiety stems from concern over the judgement of others.

What will people think of me if...? So much energy goes into cultivating the good opinions of people that don’t even know us.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

If someone holds a negative opinion of us about some aspect of who we are, what we are doing or where we are going we will either agree with them or disagree with them.

If we agree then that’s fine, they’ve told us nothing we didn’t already know and as a result can in no way change our own opinion of us our damage our self-worth.

If we disagree...then guess who is wrong!! If we want an opinion on something then we are best off asking an expert, and guess what... are the expert on you.

Compared to how much you know about you, your story, your journey and your intentions and motivations, even the closest friend, colleague or relative is the equivalent of a first-day novice.

Nobody knows you as well as you know you and as a result any comment, opinion or criticism can be treated as coming from someone who simply knows less about the subject than you do.

Always remember that you know you better than anyone and the only person that needs to be happy about who you are is you.
