If you’re certain of something in your life, don’t let anyone cause you to rethink it. There will always be someone who will want you to see your life from their point of view. They will have unsolicited advice to offer, opinions to share and a “better” way of doing things.
If we allow it, their words can get into our minds and sit there, waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. Most often, making their debut when times get tough. They creep into our thoughts, challenging our feelings and giving birth to doubts. They try to change our perspective and ultimately change our lives.
By listening to them, we could destroy what we have worked so hard to build.
Many times, people try to cause others to see life from their perspective (as negative as it may be), just so that they can justify their own life; their own choices.
We must be able to differentiate between those who are trying to help, versus those who are trying to pull us down with them. Not everyone’s advice, or even the statements they make, should be taken to heart. We must learn to filter what we’re told and only apply what is worthy of being applied.
We shouldn’t let others bring confusion into our lives or cause us to doubt the choices that we’ve made – choices that have brought us happiness and fulfillment. If we’re certain of something, we need to remain certain. We shouldn’t allow anyone or anything to sneak in and destroy that.
