“What other people think of me is none of my business”. I first encountered this saying on an affirmation card deck by Dr. Wayne Dyer. I was initially taken aback by what it said and read it over and over again. I now understand and appreciate its message and feel it's valuable mantra.
As we become stronger with our mind-body-spirit-social-emotion connection we recognize how unimportant it is to spend time worrying about whether so and so likes us or what someone else thinks, says or does. When we do this we essentially give our power away and it makes us an easy target for manipulation. This can become quite exhausting!
Step into your power; embrace who you are; all of you, your strength’s as well as your weaknesses. Do not wait for others approval. Learn to be comfortable with who you are and what that feels like.
