Easier said than done, I know.
I used to worry so much about what everyone thought of me. I was always trying to please people, and do things that would make me look acceptable in their eyes. Now, I honestly don’t give a f*ck. Being exposed to the dark side of social media has been the best thing that ever happened to me. It freed me. I learned to realize that you can’t control how people see you. Complete strangers will try to act like they know you. People will make up stories about you. Jealous haters will try to destroy you. I used to take it all so personally, wondering why my mere existence would make people so upset.
Here’s what I’ve learned:
People who are filled with hate, will always seek to destroy. That’s their weakness. They are filled with hate and think that displaying it makes them stronger, when in truth, it shows the world how truly weak they are. People who criticize you destructively, and react to you negatively simply because you exist- don’t want you to be powerful and strong. It makes them feel bad about themselves. People who have no self esteem don’t want you to know your power. People who fear truth don’t want to face or live in reality. People who want all the beauty in the world don’t want you to be beautiful, just like people who want all the power in the world don’t want you to be powerful.
So the next time someone criticizes you destructively, have empathy for them, especially if it’s a stranger on social media. The person so vehemently attacking you is a very weak and broken individual. Your haters are actually the most obsessed with you. And remember, they will obsess and criticize you no matter what you do, so do whatever the f*ck you want.
Take every negative comment designed to destroy you, and use it to fuel your realization of how incredibly magical you are. After all, if people are so obsessed with destroying you, or taking time out of their life to study you, observe you, consume your content, and try to destroy you with hate, you must be pretty f*cking magical and intriguing 💁🏽♀️ #celebrateyou
