In our lives, we are constantly hearing the opinions of others. Whether it's what they think you should do, how they think you should look, how they feel about you, or anything else, everyone always has something to say.
While receiving feedback from others can sometimes be a constructive, useful, positive experience, many times it is a negative experience. No one knows us as well as we know ourselves. In addition, while people may sometimes have good intentions when giving their opinion, other times they may not have good intentions.
Choosing to listen to ignorant comments can also be very damaging, especially if it's a comment that affirms an unhealthy thought pattern that we have.
All in all, we need to be extremely cautious in listening to comments that we receive from others. While there is the potential for comments to help us and change our lives in a positive way, there is also the potential for comments to harm us and point us down a negative path.
No one knows you as well as you know yourself, and it's important to recognize that maintaining your wellbeing is what matters most, regardless of what anyone may say.
