YOUR TRUTH DOES NOT OUTWEIGH MINE

Sometimes I get really caught up in my head about what people think about me and how people perceive my intentions and actions.  "Does so and so think I am being pushy when I am trying to show them my point of view?"  "Does this person think I am being crazy when really I am just excited?"  "Am I ambitious, or am I actually unrealistic?"  

I had a thought.  This is not a new thought, nor is it unique, but WHO THE FRIG CARES!!  Just because someone is reading me wrong, or doesn't understand where I'm coming from or what I am trying to do... that doesn't make their opinions and feelings about me TRUE.  

The other thing is (and this is gonna get deep people) maybe all those thoughts and feelings people have about me ARE true.  However, maybe my thoughts and feelings about me are ALSO true.  There are "two sides to every coin" so to speak...so maybe we just need to focus on our own truths, and not get so caught up in everyone else's.  

I guess at the end of the day, its important to be confidant in who you are and what you stand for.  Try to be as compassionate and empathetic to others as much as possible, but if people are just going to judge you and not understand where you are coming from, move on!

"Shake it off."
