When someone has an opinion about us, we may think it is the truth. But is it? We need to be the final judge.
Be responsible. By taking it on as if it’s true, we may distort what is really happening. The judgment may be more about the person giving it, than you. Decipher what fits, and leave the rest.
Stay centered. We can’t change people. Trying to alter their behavior towards you may or may not be productive. But you can choose to separate their projections from your self-image.
Question your self-talk. Criticism from others triggers that negative, judgmental voice inside us. If we listen to it, we lose confidence. Simply recognize negative self-talk for what it is and move on.
