A few weeks ago, I had a talk with a very special man in my life--
I asked him about how people's opinions affected him.
A moment of transparency: When people would talk about me or someone I love,
it would anger me so much that I would want to attack
& respond to each person with specificity.
My friend said that people will always find criticism in what you do or don't do,
so you might as well do whatever you feel is right.
After talking to him,
I realized that no one is worth that much from me!
Why come down to their level?
I promise you, that day,
I altered my attitude toward naysayers!
