Have you ever heard something about yourself, and you’re so damn gutted that someone has that opinion of you...?
Do you take it onboard and overthink it all, or do you dismiss it?
Does their perception of you, affect you?
We all have traits within ourselves that we pride ourselves in... some of mine being quiet confidence (unless I’m on stage, shift it sista! 😉), but always humble, fiercely loyal, but true to my damn self, and a little bit sassy, but always classy... haha, also, seriously sarcastic 😛
Then someone told me this week I was egotistical 🤯
I’m very aware that every reality is described by everyone’s individual perception, and this includes the characters of people we meet... we reflect our own thoughts, feels, experiences and judgments onto them... but this one upset me... it couldn’t be further from what I’d hope to portray...
It’s been on my mind every day since, it’s had me second guessing myself.
Then I realised it’s what teens and young adults deal with every day, being trolled for their true being, and it makes them doubt every original thought within themselves...
So, then I remembered, lions never lose sleep over the opinion of sheep 🙂
And that’s not ego, just a touch of self care ❤️
Close call 💋
