One day the people that don’t even believe in you will tell everyone how they met you. – Johnny Depp
As we grow up, we give a lot of importance to what people around us will think about our actions and opinions. We are anxious about how society is going to judge us. We mold our opinions to follow popular trends and often that affects our life choices.
This ultimately contributes to changing who we become as a person. But we should not let others shape us because of their judgments. It is always good to be influenced by positive sources, but we should not let ourselves get affected by the fear of judgment.
It is often seen that people who stuck to their own paths with resilience and reached their goals are the ones people want to get associated with. They might have been the same people who might have criticized you when you were embarking on this very journey.
You then realize that giving into their opinions would have been a glaring mistake that could have stopped you from reaching where you have, Thus, it is important that you surround yourself with people who believe in you.
Have a close and tight circle. Value them and their opinions for they value you. Filter out the opinions and judgments of others and maintain focus towards what you want to achieve at the end.
There are many popular people all over the world who had to struggle and even go against a considerable number of people to achieve their dreams.
So have clarity about what you want to achieve and how you want to do it. Once you know that what you are doing is on the right track and harms no one else, go ahead in your journey and let nothing deter you.
