But only to ourselves. And only to the extent we let them.
We can only control our own thoughts and our own responses.
As soon as we step outside of that, we’re giving up our freedom. We’re handing the responsibility for the way we feel to someone else.
We’re dependent on their judgment.
What they think is up to them.
Are you happy with the way you look? Do you think you’re dressed appropriately?
Then that’s good enough.
It doesn’t need to be any more complicated than that.
