Choose not to worry about what other people think about you. It’s amazing how stressed people get over what others think about them.
Another person’s opinion about you is not more important than the opinion you have about yourself. If you have an over pre-occupation with perception and trying to please other people’s expectations, you become the prisoner of others. Einstein said that great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
There is no need to ever compare yourself to others. When you use someone Else’s measuring stick, you will always come up short. You don’t need to be better than anyone else, just strive to be better than you were yesterday. Just be the unique, wonderfully amazing you, nobody does it better.
