    People take jabs about my personality, posting habits, and many other things on a daily basis.

    People will criticize the way you speak, dress, and think without remorse. They’ll criticize your character and personal boundaries.

    I have critics saying hello on a daily basis.

    You know what all these people have in common?

    None of them pay my bills, make me breakfast, or stare back at me when I look in the mirror. Their opinions also don’t affect my life or way of thinking in any way, shape, or form.

    We will all get critics from time to time. The more you put yourself out there the more people will attack you.

    These people really won’t have any power unless you give it to them. Don’t give critics power.

    Life is chaotic and the truth is none of us have it all figured out.

    Keep your eyes, ears, and mind open at all times. Take it all in with a grain of salt and focus on growth. I’m talking about personal growth. Don’t worry about your following. That will come if you put in the work.

    None of us are perfect, but there are plenty of us that follow the golden rule and strive to help others enjoy the ride on this rock as much as possible.

    Don’t apologize for being outspoken or sticking to your guns on certain things. Just be nice and follow the golden rule.

    You’ll be OK.
