You Know What They Say About Opinions…..

1 Comment

There is a saying….

“Opinions are like arseholes…….. everyone has one……….. and most are full of shit.”

I’m not sure who wrote this – but it so very true.

I’ve dealt with people and their opinions of me…. all my life.

Most opinions have been based on toxic thinking, cognitive distortions, self serving assumptions and their own needs. And are actually nothing to do with me.

I’m aware people’s ‘opinions’ continue. Even people in my life I’m supposed to be able to trust – have wrong opinions of me.

But, I know who I am. I know my capacity for truth and my insight – make me someone some people don’t feel comfortable around. I sense things in people. I often know people better than they know themselves.

So what’s the best way to discredit my thinking…………. assume wrong things about me. Decide ‘my’ thinking is wrong,

In some people’s minds – my thinking ‘has’ to be wrong. Otherwise – it means I’m right – about them. And they cannot bear that. If I’m right about them – that means they have issues. That means they aren’t as ‘good’ as they delude themselves they are.

I’m always right about people. My discernment is accurate and has been proven right so many times. I sense red flags, dodgy motivations, dishonesty, distorted thinking. I sense it easily.

So people have to believe whatever bullshit they want to believe about me. They tell others their bullshit opinions. And they cause damage in the process. But, they do it with zero conscience, or regard to the harm they cause. People are all too often very selfish.

It is what it is.

People can feel entitled to their bullshit opinions.

And I can say – you are wrong, but that’s okay – because I know who I am. I know the truth.

And life goes on.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

One thought on “You Know What They Say About Opinions…..

  1. It can be dangerous, too. I am very introverted, so people feel free to decide I’m “stuck up” and that I think I’m better than them, and so feel quite free to punish this person they’ve made up in their head. I don’t deal much with people anymore, and I’ve let it be known I’m armed. *Sounds* paranoid, which is another thing they can make up! 😀
