What Others Think of Us is None of Our Business
It can be hard not to care about what others are thinking and saying about us. Really hard, especially if we grew up being teased, picked on and made to feel like we are less than by a care giver or even siblings or peers.
For us highly sensitive empaths, especially, it can be a tough pill to swallow when we feel like someone is misunderstanding us or not even trying to know who we really are.
We tend to worry too much when we might have hurt someone else’s feelings, left anyone out, or reacted instead of calmly responding.
What I’ve finally learned throughout my own trauma healing, chronic illness healing, soul healing journey, is that most people don’t feel as much as I do or at the same level as I do.
Most people don’t have the emotional intelligence that we as empaths have, along with the intuition and gift of discernment when someone is being sneaky, back-stabbing or dishonest.
Loyalty is so important to us and let’s face it, we feel wounded when our fierce loyalty isn’t reciprocated.
What has been so beautiful about healing myself of the baggage and false beliefs that piled up over the decades, is that all that’s left is my highest self with occasional ego moments for survival in this world. To fulfill my purpose while I’m here.
I used to be called ‘weird’ and ‘mysterious’ and other colorful terms because I’m ‘not like most other people.’ Strange. Different. A loner. I don’t care about the same things many people do.
…My kid would laugh at me right now for claiming to be ‘not like the other girls.’ 😝
Since when is that a bad thing? 🤷♀️
Anyhoozle, I’ve just noticed that my give-a-f*ck about what people think of me is becoming non-existent now as my soul strives to complete its mission while I‘m in this body.
Occasionally I still overthink, but it’s fleeting, because there just isn’t enough energy to go around to worry about what other people think.
I pulled myself up out of the very depths of hell on earth and I’m standing here, stronger and more determined than ever to become the best version of me: a sort of odd, fiercely compassionate, loyal, stubborn soul on a mission to make this world a better place through healing energy and pure love.
Why is this sounding so self righteous? 😂 Not my intention! 🤷♀️
I guess my truth comes easily these days, after spending decades hiding who I really am beneath layers of trauma and lies others told me about me.
Folks, the fact is, we have this ONE life in these bodies, and everything is energy, so if we’re wasting precious energy worrying about others’ false opinions about us, it leaves less room for what really matters.
For me, raising a caring, wise, strong child in a safe home full of unconditional love, being the best wife I can be to my best friend, and serving humanity in the way I came here to do, is what matters most.
Everything else is icing on the cake.
I think I needed to write this to remind myself also, that it just isn’t my business what others think of me. My vibe attracts my tribe and I welcome all you beautiful, strange, truth seeking, light working, mystic souls on a mission, to my wonderfully weird tribe. 🙌🏼🙏🏼💫
Each day that I’m unashamedly and unapologetically myself and standing in my authentic truth, more like minded souls appear, loving me in all my eccentricity.
Those on a different wavelength and with differing purposes here, might not mesh with my energy and that’s okay.
Dang, you guys, how freeing is it to truly realize this? 🤯
Next time you find yourself worrying about what your frienemy or neighbor or the mailman might be saying behind your back, picture your purpose and let go of that worry. Focus on what you’re here for and those people will magically disappear from your life. Or at the very least, from the forefront of your mind.
I can’t really take credit for this one- PMS wrote it. 😆 Well, she contributed greatly. Thank you, no-filter-fun-time-of-the-month! 🤪
So, what is your purpose? Does it win out over worry about what others think? 🤔
