Other People’s Opinions

In life everyone seems to have an opinion about everything that you do. Some of them you take to heart and some you could care less about. Depending on what type of person you are, you might not care about these opinions at all, or you might take everyone personally.

This can be a very complex situation depending upon what the subject matter is. I have recently been dealing with a lot of this. Apparently, when you quite your job everyone takes it real personally lol.

I used to care deeply about what everyone that I came into contact with thought about what was doing. I now think about where the information is coming from and I decide whether I need to take it into consideration, but what happens when someone you respect and value their opinion is not happy with your choices.

I have been thinking about this a lot lately and I think the answer is to take their feelings into consideration and if you don’t agree, let it go! Easier said than done. Lol, anytime the answer is let it go, I am always like, “whyyyyy?” and “how?”

We can not let other people’s opinions determine the trajectory of our lives. We only have one life and we get to choose how we are going to live it.

Let this person know that their comments are not appreciated. If they continue to let you know that they believe what you are doing is wrong, limit your time with them. And you guessed it, let it go!
