We all know one of those people that seem to be an authority of everyone else’s life but their own. You know, that one person who seems to know what you should be eating, when and where you should be working out, and most famously, how you should be raising your children, when they, themselves are childless. It amazes me at the gall of some people. I know that I am not suppose to let it bother me, and I am working on that.
There used to be a time when I would let someone’s opinions push me to binge or give up on myself all together. Now, I am happy to report that I no longer let it affect me in that way. However, it still gets under my skin a teensy tiny bit. 😉
Thankfully I have learned to accept myself to the point that what other people say no longer makes me question my myself or my motives. I just scratch my head at the oblivion of some people. Do they honestly believe they are wise enough to dictate the lives of others? Is their own reality so clouded that they cannot see the way they are conducting their own lives? Usually it is this type of person who’s life is completely out of control in the first place. They would rather focus on someone else instead of taking care of their own.
Let me share a little something with you all; No one likes to be told what to do, and when told what to do, they will most often do the opposite out of spite so save your breath. Tend to your own back garden and keep your “seeds” of wisdom to yourself. What may be perfectly wonderful for you, may not be for someone else. We have our own path to follow.
No other living, breathing human being knows what is best for anyone other than themselves. An opinion is just that, and opinion, so keep to yourself.
