You must have a cousin, an uncle, or perhaps a friend who thinks they know it all, who tells everyone what they should do and openly gives their opinion.
But have you ever thought if half of what they say is even remotely how they live?
Do their actions really align with their words?
Are they living their life in a way that reflects even half of what they preach?
If the answer is no, then stop seeking validation from them.
Don’t let their judgments and criticisms slip into your head and affect your sense of self-worth.
Their opinion does not matter.
They don’t give a sh*t about you.
All they care about is their point of view, not you.
This is something most people don’t realize.
So take a moment to reflect on this.
If their opinion fails to support, encourage, and contribute to your growth and success; no matter what it is, it just doesn’t f*king matter.
It’s time to break free from the people who don’t add any value to your personal and professional development.
You are the hero of your own story.
It is your determination, your hard work, and your ability to meet your own goals that truly define your worth.
So why waste your precious time and energy seeking validation from others who don’t even care about you in the first place?
Life is a single-player game, and you’re the only player playing it.
So stop cheating yourself to please the naysayers.
People’s opinions don’t make you, you make you.
So go forth and conquer the world and don’t ever give a f*ck about what anyone else thinks of you.
