Stop giving power to people who question your YOU. YOU know who YOU are and YOU know why YOU do the things YOU do.
Remember who you are and stay true to that person. When people say things about you contrary to the truth, don’t let it bother you. Take a look in the mirror and be honest with yourself. If you believe that you’ve being genuine, sincere, supportive, truthful and transparent in a relationship but still feel totally misunderstood then stop questioning and beating up on yourself. You’ve done your part. Sometimes when you feel like no one knows or truly understands you, it has nothing to do with you. Maybe it’s because they don’t really know or understand themselves. It might be that the things you do and how you live your life convicts them. Could it be that you’re doing something right and the reason they’re so bothered by you or question you is because they see something in you that they unknowingly want to see in themselves. No matter the reason, choose to love them anyway. How you treat people determines your character and more importantly, your strength. No matter how much someone may hurt you, know that love always prevails. Your love and generous actions toward them subtly teaches and will help them to change their life. Despite how people treat you or what they think/say, continue being you. Never lose you.
My best friend always told me, “those that mind, don’t matter and those that matter, don’t mind.” Although those words are very few, the meaning is extremely profound. Don’t take to heart anyone who doesn’t hold significance in your life and even if it does come form someone you deem important, remember that they don’t define you.
Love people but don’t let them hurt you.
