I think it’s unrealistic (for the majority of us) to think that we will ever reach a point in our development where it simply does not bother us at all what others think of us.
I do think that’s possible. And it’s also totally necessary if we want to live authentic, loving lives. We need to find a way to listen to what our soul has to say and see ourselves from that perspective as much as we can so that we can show up authentically and in a real, loving way.
And if this is an area that is tough for you, take my hand. Because when we join together, we can stand for love and speak our truth and keep it real. And we are all needed. Only you can say what you want to say in the way you want to say it. The important thing is to be authentic, to show up, to join in the conversation.
And because we are only ever really talking to ourselves anyway (with others listening in), what really matters is that we speak our truth as clearly as we can.
