Don’t let the little wounds overwhelm you today. You don’t have to be what others say you are. Be who you want to be and who you aspire to become. No one else has walked in your shoes or knows all the details about what you’ve been through, except you. So don’t let them define who you are today or in the future. And don’t let their hurtful words get into your consciousness.
No one knows you like you do, so why are you allowing others to define who you are? The hurtful words are the reflections of how they see themselves. They are throwing them at you so they don’t have to face the facts about who they have become in their own lives.
Don’t carry their baggage for them. If you feel you must respond to their attempts to label you, simply say “I’m sorry you feel that way about yourself. But I’m not your mirror.” You need not say anything else. Your own words will get into their head.
Each time you replay the recording inside your consciousness recite that response and erase their words. Or you can create an affirmation that helps you reprogram the recording to what it truly should be for you.
Remember you are what you think you are. So don’t think the hateful words others shroud you in. You are a beautiful, intelligent, and capable person; both inside and out. Tell yourself that when you look in the mirror and you will be able to ignore all the negative outside forces that are trying to tell you different.
