Mind your projections. They reveal so much about you. At any given moment, you’re giving insight into your thoughts, views and beliefs. This is YOUR reality. At the same time, what others say about you reveals nothing about you. This is THEIR reality. Don’t take it personally. No one can convince you you’re something you’re not. We take things personally when we agree with what others have said. If we didn’t agree, the things that others say would not affect us emotionally. If we did not care about what others think about us, their words or behavior could not affect us. Even if someone yells at you or gossips about you, it still is not about you! Their actions and words are based on what they believe. That’s why I can’t be convinced I’m not intelligent, beautiful, lovable and worthy because those thoughts are not MINE those are someone else’s and I know it’s not about me.
