If you are attracted to their praise, their criticism will kill you – break free from that disempowering trap πŸ™

“The biggest challenge is to not be affected by praise because a lot of it is not from the heart. Being true to yourself about your strengths and weaknesses, when everyone out there has a strong opinion and wants to give advice, is another challenge.”

Tena Desae

A lot of people will love you, and a lot of people will hate you – and how they feel about you has nothing to do with how you look, what you do, how you are as a person or your worth. How they feel about you is a reflection of their own perspective, their own happiness and their own bitterness.

People mean well, people are kind and appreciative – and it can feel amazing to get someone’s approval and love, just like it can feel awful when someone gives you their disapproval or hatred. When you are easily affected by how others feel about you, it is usually the result of your insecurity, and it gives all your power awayif you are attracted to their praise, their criticism will kill you. Never let how others feel about you be your guidance for how you feel about yourself! Instead, stop caring about what others say, think and how they feel about you. That is the important first step, and it takes time and practice. Then start to find your own stability, find your own value and grow your own love and approval for yourself.

When you stand strong in your own acceptance, approval and unconditional love, you will not be so easily affected by their beautiful words of appreciation or their disapproval any more. That is strenght, that is freedom. πŸ™

    I agree to this. Most people’s reaction are based from their experiences and no matter how hard you try to be nice or perfect, there are always someone out there who will comment negatively

    Falling in Love with that little girl on the other side of that mirror. Unconditional Love.
    Love that little girl your neighbor. Away from men returning into the Mountains of your Fathers.

    You are so right. Over-valuing holds the danger of being whipped in the other direction. If you are over-fond of praise, you will dread criticism.
