Not everyone will understand your journey. That's fine. It's not their journey to make sense of... It's yours!
We can't control someone else's perception of who we are and we can't change their opinion of what they think our circumstances are. That's okay! 🤗
I say that because to be completely honest... their opinion and their perception of you doesn't matter. You are in control of your own life. You know what you have to deal with on a daily basis. We all have our own way of coping. There is no right or wrong way to cope. Everyone has their own way to deal with things. Just because someone feels they have the "right" to put their two-cents in, doesn't mean you have to listen. They are not in control of your life. This is YOUR journey... not theirs!!! 😁
Some people will jump to conclusions and make immediate assumptions. However, there is one thing you need to remember. That is THEIR problem, not yours. That is something that they need to work on and change. You do not have to change who you are just because they didn't get all the facts. Besides, they don't need to know everything about you or about what's going on in your life, because the truth of the matter is... it's none of their business! 😉
Believe me... I know how difficult it is to ignore those types of people. I struggle to push past it all the time. I have to work hard to keep their negative attitude and thoughts out of my own head. But I want everyone to try to remember. We should never allow someone else to control our thoughts, emotions and peace of mind. If they want to be critical and judgmental... let them. They can do whatever they want. That doesn't mean you have to allow that person into your life, whether it be in person or online. You deserve better than that and so do I. 💞
