If you have your self worth wrapped-up in other people’s opinions, it’s a very difficult game to play.
Life is tough if you are navigating with other people’s GPS. Do you as you are plenty awesome and if you have good intent, you’ve won! You have to learn to block out other people’s position on you. I’ve said it a million times, people thought I was immature and weird for starting my bobblehead business. So what did I do? I looked the other way and gave 2 shits about what anybody had to say or any comment I heard. This comments came from friends and even family! Now a few years later, after building up a strong community and selling a lot of items, I can now laugh at the other’s who doubted me. Play the game that YOU want to play and let the other’s whisper. Period.
