The hardest part of being a person is to separate the positive voices in this world from the all the garbage that people have to say.
Which people are trying to help you and which people are talking non-sense and coming from a negative place?
Because you don’t want to be so confident that you’ll give up good suggestions that can help you. But you can’t take in all the comments that come from someone else’s pain, frustration and arrogance.
Many of us are in the positive places that we are in because we listened to people that had our best interest in mind. Our parents, our teachers, our friends, etc…
This notion that we shouldn’t listen to anyone is built on the belief that someone else will hurt us.
So how much do we let in?
