Trust invested in the words and best meaning from any person, whoever he/she is, must never undermine or cover up the internal truth. Who I truly am. Who you truly are. Anyone's opinion or judgement can never really rock that center.
Unless I/you let it.
Whatever is offered, if this resonates with the core of my Being, yes I will listen.
If not I will decline the attempt. Nothing outside of me, nothing external can ever define my truth and belief. My true essence, what I like to call a spark of Divinity/God is never external. It's forever within.
Hell yes I fall, crash, burn in a storm. And then I get up on my feet, taking the lesson with me, with my internal power, being both humble of the event, and stronger than ever.
