When they hate and dissaprove of you 

When other people criticise you and point out your flaws – don’t let it bring you down!

What others choose to see in you is always more about them than you. How they view you, their opinions of you and how they feel about you depends on their own beliefs, expectations, desires and mood. 

You can always choose to see the best in others, you can always choose to focus on the possibilities, the solutions and the desired outcome. You don’t have to hight-light mistakes or things you dislike – you can use those as INSPIRATION to FOCUS on what you now know you PREFER and DESIRE as a result of this experience, and you can talk about that instead.

Criticism and negativity is a choice. So is appreciation and positivity. The focus you choose to use most will become easier to use again – but it is a matter of choice and YOU can choose to focus on yourself and others through the loving eyes of appreciation instead, whether they do or not. 💖

    A very positive message.
    I’ve always said, You can’t control what other people say or do, but you can control your response to it. We have the choice. We have the power.

    People often hate, despise, and discourage that which causes them jealousy or makes them feel as a lesser. They perpetuate this energy in the attempt to make themselves feel better. It causes more grief. Suffering in numbers. Raise your energy above it. If ya can’t do that, then think of yourself as above others – without thinking of them as less-equals.

    You’re a great form for encouragement, miss lady. I look forward to reading more.

    Absolutely agree. We must remember that this is our stage and we will walk this way but once. Own it!

    I had to learn this the hard way. Then one day I decided that I would no longer take (internalize) the blame unless I was actually in the wrong. The positive thing about criticism is that as long as one doesn’t internalize it can be a useful tool in becoming a better person. 🙂
