If people’s actions and words affect your emotional stability, it’s time to examine their motivation behind them. If it was an honest correction or guidance, appreciate the thought that came with it to grow you. However, if the words or action were malicious, find out why they would bother you. Do you agree with them?
Never allow anybody to make you feel inferior or have negative feelings about yourself. Here’s how you live free of other people’s opinions:
- Know yourself
When you don’t understand who you are, every person’s opinion of you will sway your emotional balance. Knowing yourself is realizing what you’re capable of, under certain circumstances. It’s focusing on the areas that make you shine and embracing them as your purposes in life. It’s about walking with head held high because you know yourself better than anyone else and therefore, to grant anyone access in your mental and emotional strength, they must be agreeing with who you know you’re first and foremost.
- Choose Your Beliefs
What you allow to linger in your mind cultivates your beliefs. Choose to believe the best of yourself. Be your best cheerleader. When someone either accidentally or intentionally tries to make you feel inferior, remember who you think you are.
- Cultivate your confidence
Confident people do not let false opinions of others take root in their minds. They forgive quickly and let go of any statement that could scar them.
A famous saying goes,that whoever is trying to bring you down is already beneath you. Knowing this how could you allow anyone again to drag you to their level? Do not allow anyone to have that kind of power over you. No one has the power to make you feel or think less of yourself.
