This is a lesson that has served me well. The last couple months or so I have been on a mission to keep in mind whenever I am making any sort of negative judgments at all to refrain from doing so.
A huge shift in my life has happened. I really stopped caring about what others think of myself and I have a much higher regard for myself in return.
Life is so amazing that when you just change just a little tweak in your life the relationships and people all around open up to you and you, more importantly, open up to others. I am at a point in my life that pretty no matter what anyone says to me. I already know my own worth and I do not need others approval to determine my value. It is such a great feeling and a huge burden has been lifted from my shoulders. We live in a world where TV shows and social media paints a picture of perfection and that no one has any insecurities. Confidence is an attractive feature on TV. In reality, the vulnerabilities are what makes you human. We are not robots, there is no such thing as perfection. The more we seek it, the more problems you will see in life because there is no such thing.
A went to a friends engagement party yesterday and really just was able to just be and it was an amazing feeling because able to connect to people on a much deeper level than if I was back to my old self constantly judging myself and watching what I do to make sure I didn’t mess up. Instead, I was just able to see the greatness in everyone and as a result, the connections were more real and authentic.
I hope everyone has an amazing day ahead of them! The weather has been perfect and Nick Bilton’s book the American Kingpin- the story of Silk Road’s founder is such a thriller and I highly recommended for anyone who is interested in learning more about bitcoins and the dynasty he created. I can’t believe it’s a true story. It really goes to show that anything is possible with the right amount of work and just truly believing in yourself and not caring about what others think about you.
