You are who you are, not how others see you. I must remember that. When someone cuts me to the core, I must remember who I am and what is in my heart.
It is hard at times. Especially when it hits so close and when it hurts. But if you know within your own heart your own thoughts, intentions, and your own self, then you cannot let other’s actions make you doubt who you really are.
I can’t go chasing down people’s own insecurities and jealousies. Their own issues is for them to deal with, not for me to fix. And when they take it out on me I must learn to walk away and not allow the sting and hurt to take away any part of who I am.
That is the one thing about one’s self. Only you truly know what is in your heart and you can’t prove that to no one, nor should you have to.
