I absolutely love this quote. This has been a powerful lesson I have learned particularly over the last couple of years. I would bend and shape my world according to the critics in my life. I wanted to make them happy.
And then I began to realize more and more that what they wanted was not what I truly wanted. I would continue to fail in their eyes, again and again. No matter what I did, it was not enough.
So I stopped listening to them, and began treading a path of my own. This upset them. Meanwhile, I found liberation.
Do not let your critics sway you. They will always be there and are always ready to bring you down. They hold no power unless you give it to them.

I am on a mission to be apologetically Me - true to myself and what I believe in, pursuing all adventures that set my soul on fire, living this life to the fullest extent and allowing the world to join me on the journey.
