Blunt Force Truth: Your opinions have no consequence on anyone’s identity but your own. The opinions of others do not define who you are. Unless you allow them. In reality, it really doesn’t matter what anyone says about you. You don’t need their approval. You don’t need validation. And you don’t need permission to continue being awesome. You are the very essence of love, dear ones, so celebrate your life in the way only you know best. And if your own ego gets in the way with any negative opinion of self, remember that your ego does not define who you are. Only your essence does. So thank the others and thank your ego for having opinions of you. Because there’s something profound in it for you. It’s called not giving a fuck.
