Ride ’em Cowboy! When you have the knowledge and insight behind the real story, you don’t have to take on the criticism of those that have no idea what’s going on. Instead of allowing their hate and anger get into your head; be amused and play as you dodge their attempts to bait you into a fight. They’re not worth the effort to get upset over. You’re the one who has truth and knowledge on your side. Besides, they’ll be the ones who get upset by your laughing at them in response. They really hate that.
Don’t worry so much about the opinions of those who don’t know you, don’t care about the truth or seek the truth for the sake of real justice. They have an agenda and if you allow their negativity into your world, you’ll be giving them exactly what they want.
Focus instead on your true friends, family and even the fans you have out there. We all have them. No matter what our walk in life, we all have fans who cheer for us when we do well, have a heavy heart when we don’t. And maybe even cry with us when we’re sad and struggling.
Out there in the world there are people who admire the strength, determination and fortitude it takes to face challenges and overcome struggles. You might even have someone like that in your life. That person who you look up to and admire. Use their courage as inspiration for your own struggles. Think of the challenges they have faced and overcome. Then apply those same character traits you hold respect for to the path in front of you. If they can do it; so can you!
