We all are looking for validation from other people to feel comfortable in our own skin. We believe in other people’s views to accept us.
When you accept who you are, you become so confident that what others think of you doesn’t affect you in any way. Rather you connect with even those who criticize you because you know yourself better than them and you trust your abilities more than anyone else’ judgment. You realize that the people who criticize are those who lack the courage to make it happen, they envy your success and even your acceptance about yourself.
Trust yourself, and accept their criticism as their failure, not yours.
