The title of this post is serious freedom, if you can implement exactly what it says in this quote into your everyday life, you will experience freedom! Can I just tell you, I have had this quote hanging up in my bathroom to see loud and clear for about 4 years now, but it wasn’t until this last year and an online course I took recently that it finally sunk in! As a woman and as a pleaser, this concept was hard for me, but I have built a mental toughness EVERYDAY with my I AM statements that this has become a HUGE mantra for me that I remind myself ALL the time!
Don’t get me wrong, I am a person that feels deeply, and I have finally learned to be ok with that part of me too! So I still allow myself to feel, this does not mean to turn off all of your emotions! This means that you can stop and feel what you are feeling and then do not allow others opinions around you to have control of your life! You have control of how you react! How others feel and their opinions are a direct result of how they feel about themselves, its their problem if they choose to have an opinion of you or are rude to you because that’s their world and their life! Their world and opinion has nothing to do with your world! So you can actually get to a point where you have so much self love and confidence within yourself that you can actually say to yourself “that is their problem, not mine”, if someone thinks poorly of you or treats you unkind! Unless you’ve done something that is so rude that you might have had to suffer the consequence of someone being rude, or having a poor opinion of you then you might have to face that! But even then, if its a good or bad opinion of you, that’s still coming from their world and not yours!
So really if you are doing your best every day to live a good life full of integrity and purpose and love, and others still cant have a good opinion of you then you know that its really none of your business why! You do not have to suffer because others choose to be unhappy! Go about your life with LOVE, HAPPINESS, SERVICE and PURPOSE and don’t worry about any haters around you! If you ignore it and if they aren’t along for the ride of your awesome life and are negative towards you and your awesomeness then they will eventually just drop out of your life, and you will start attracting the kind of people that LOVE you and your purpose, but even then their opinion still shouldn’t make a difference to how you love yourself! They should just add to the fullness and awesomeness of you and your life!
So remember everyday that what others think of you is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS, and you will have freedom!
LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!
