Everyone is entitled to their own opinion about anyone or anything, everyone has something to say concerning you and whether it is positive or negative you should not allow that opinion to define you. When you know who you are, you will not be easily affected by what people think of you. You need to realize that opinions are not facts and there is no reason to waver or collapse when people give you their two cents if you know who you are. When rumours are spread and fires are started you’ll be well able to winnow the lies from the truth and turn a blind eye to the situation, you are programmed to dismiss any information that does not coincide with what you already know about yourself, you are guaranteed to stand unshaken when they descend like a ton of bricks because you are established on the firm foundation of you knowing who you are. Rightfully so you are supposed to write your own story and you are expected to restrict others from doing so for you, however the world is teeming with people who are don’t know who they are, they are so caught up in looking for everybody’s approval that they have no interest in finding themselves. They are lost and are prone to just going with the flow and accepting every word that is dished to them and living by it. Unfortunately they are going nowhere, fast. People of this caliber resemble water; they are constantly changing to fit into any place. Now, “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything”

In conclusion I believe one should take time to reflect and embark on a journey of self discovery .

“Knowing who you are is the greatest wisdom a human being can possess. Know your goals, what you love, your morals, your needs, your standards, what you will not tolerate and what you are willing to die for. It defines who you are.” -Beyonce
