Through out our lives, we’re destined to deal with folk speaking ill of us. It’s the way of the world; you will never be able to satisfy everybody and because of that, people will talk.
Sometimes, it’s difficult having to deal with the things they say. For the longest of time, I would get consumed by it, lose sleep over it, wonder: but how could they possibly say that. . . I wasted so much of time, that I’m never getting back, worrying about what irrelevant folk had to say. So here’s my quote of the today, it speaks brilliantly to this topic:
Honey, folks are gonna talk about you till the day you die. And ain’t nothing you can do. LET FOLKS TALK. It ain’t about what they call you, It’s about what you answer to.
~ the oh-so entertaining Madea! (I love this character)
I wish I had learned this concept and put it into practice earlier, it would have really saved me tons of time to focus on things that actually matter.
I once read that what people say about you is not your business. And that’s the truth, it isn’t. It’s an opinion which we’re all entitled to!
