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,
