I’ve learned so much over the past few weeks. One thing that has been a constant reassurance is that people will have an opinion of any and everything you do. People who don’t know you. People that have created their own version of you in their heads and believe it to be true. You could be doing the most righteous “act” and standing for the most righteous cause and someone will search for any flaw in that “act” or any minute detail within your character as person to disrupt or downplay your forward motion. It’s not fair, but that’s the way of the world.
People actually get mad because you’re not being the person that “they” want you to be. How selfish and inconsiderate is that? If you don’t follow their ideologies or philosophies of how you should act and live they get offended. For me personally, that has been a hard pill to swallow as of late. I think it’s the most ridiculous thing in the world. My goal is to use it as more fuel to keep fighting and standing my ground.
The only opinions that matter should come from people that have actually done something or someone that you have the utmost respect for. Some peoples full time job is to be a critic and or share their uninformed opinion, they feel like they’re being productive when they do it. So who am I or who is anyone for that matter to tell someone that they should stop being “productive.”?
