Let’s be honest, unless you are a sociopath devoid of emotion there’s going to be a time when you are hurt by someone’s words. I am no different. As a matter of fact, things others say can have a dramatic impact on me. I don’t like the feeling of knowing someone out in the world doesn’t like me.
I have learned that I will never be able to control what other people say or do, but I can control how I react. I have to constantly remind myself of this fact.
