It’s so easy to take things personally, isn’t it?
It has taken me years- and I mean years- to realize that gossip isn’t about me at all; cruel words, secret giggles, and lies are reflections of those speaking them.
A wise person once said “when you point the finger, you’re pointing three back at yourself,” or something along those lines. Although I’ve been fortunate to surround myself with high vibe people, it’s not to say I didn’t spend a large portion of my life not knowing the difference between people with good and bad intentions.
I used to listen to the mean words and think it was my fault. I listened to everything on the outside and ignored the true feelings in my heart. These days, I finally know better.
Gossip is nothing but low vibe energy to keep other people down and drag others to their level. You have the chance to rise above it! Trust me, it takes practice, but tuning out those negative messages is completely possible- and once you do, life is so much more peaceful.
Keep doing you. The right people will come your way.
