If you’re anything like me (and for your sake I hope you’re not 🙂 ), trying to control my feelings and reactions as well as other people’s feelings and reactions can be a full time job! I am in sales and nothing bothers me more than knowing someone doesn’t approve of me or like me or how I do things. It bothers me so much sometimes that I’ll obsess about ways to fix it until that certain someone can like me again. (Very unZen, I know).
So I’ve concocted an exercise to help me let go:
I think about who I am and I say to myself, “I am a kind, helpful, decent and honest person and I always try my very best to be the best version of myself I can be. This is the best I can do for myself and those around me, and others will choose to accept me or not, but that is not my concern”.
Let it go, let it be.
