My 11-year-old daughter said she “looked silly” in her outfit one day. I asked her what looked silly. She responded that the “other girls were looking at me and I could tell they thought I looked silly.”
How easy it is to take others’ opinions into oneself. And often not even realize it.
Sometimes it is what you learned as a child, and often it is what you BELIEVE others think of you.
Complex! Not even what people really think, but rather what we THINK they think!
Regardless, here is a power thought for your day,
“I now go beyond other people’s fears and limitations,
and I now go beyond MY fears and limitations.”
