You are not what others think you are. You are what God knows you are. – Shannon L. Alder
At times, we get too involved thinking about what others think about us. Know that this world is full of hypocrites and there are different kinds of people all around.
You are not someone about whom others have formed an opinion. This is because people may think something about you according to their own wishes which in no way determine your personality.
You are who you are, and you would not have to go around giving a clarification about it to each and everyone you meet in your life. Learn to accept the fact that what is more important is what you think about yourself, and let others think whatever they want!
This could be better justified as, “You cannot carpet the whole earth, but you can wear slippers to protect your own feet.” All you need is to be right at your own place, and the rest of the things will fall in places all by themselves.
When others say something demotivating about you, pay no attention to their words for that does not determine you as a person by any chance. Simply let it go by thinking that such people have got no other job but to criticize people, and that’s what they have been doing with you as well. All that matters in life is the way you think of yourself.
Also, if you are true at your own place, God is going to know about it. God has access to all your details and he knows how you are as a person.
You need not give any kind of clarification to anyone else in this world, just be the way you are, and God is going to shower his blessings upon you. Know that you can escape everyone’s eyes, but you can never escape his eyes.
All that you do or say are known to him, and thus, his opinion and judgment are going to matter for you! Let others do whatever they want, keep going, and be true to your own self and the rest is going to be fine!
