What we fear others will think about us is just a reflection of what we think of ourselves. When we love ourselves fully and completely, shadows, darkness, and light, then what others think of us ceases to become an issue. Honestly, we don’t even really notice until they tell us, and then we become able to say, “OK, Thank you for your opinion.” We become better able to recognize when the thought, “What will people think of me?” slips into our heads. And we will be able to say to ourselves, “The real question is, What will I think of me?” “How will I feel about myself?”
When we have compassion and love and forgiveness and grace towards ourselves, then ‘What others think of us’ becomes less powerful.
When we learn to love all the parts of ourselves, darkness and light, then ‘What others think of us becomes less powerful.
When we learn to change the dialogue in our head and allow ourselves to be imperfect, then ‘What others think of us’ becomes less powerful.
When we learn to show all parts of us to the world; When we learn to stop hiding those parts we want to change; When we learn to walk into our Authentic selves and shine out light and dark 100%; then ‘What others think of us’ becomes less powerful.
One of fear’s inner dialogues is “What will other people think?” If we continue to hear and work on loving all of us and continue to work on shining at 100 percent, then this will help you to push past that fear of what others will think and continue to step into your soul’s purpose.
