Have you every thought about doing something bold that may come across as ” not you”.
Well let me tell you something when you start doing things without worrying about the opions of others this can be your most liberating experience ever.
I recently learned a new quote ” I am completely independent of the good or bad opinions of others. ” Let me tell you this quote is probably the ticket to living your most authentic life.
When I thought of this, a person who has this grilled in their system is what some would say thick skin, bold, brave and even adventurous. Some would say bad ass, ass hole or not right. But, the funny part is they do not care. That is mental freedom in one way or another.
So, why cant we be this way sometimes, we should not care for opinions of others. Some of us have this grilled so deep within changing this will be so difficult but we have to make the switch.
Imagine walking down the road and wondering what a random stranger thinks of you who you will probably not see again. Or you are in the mall and you accidentally trip and you turn around to see who saw you… WHY CARE. At least you did not break a leg and most times people did not see a thing.
I have seen people trip and they look around them before they stop to make sure they are ok. I am guilty of this as well lol but now I have to wonder why am I even doing this?
We are so trapped in our mind of having some kind of control of what others think of us. We never realize we are trapped within a cage and we are ready to fly.
Do you know we are so busy wondering what other people think we lose track of what we are really doing? Have you ever notice this with yourself. We tend to get caught up in the main goal in the first place.
Some of us we only know to be a people pleaser. For some reason or the other we do not know anything else to our life. We are only concerned in making others happy and forgetting our own lives.
This becomes exhausting and too much to bear as we are in a lose situation. We cannot win this game because we cannot please every one. That is why growing thick skin is awesome and liberating.
When you find this freedom within you will begin to live.
