Nowadays, it seems like everyone has an opinion of you. Whether it be your lifestyle, your career, or your body, someone always has to give their two cents. Bold women take what others say into consideration when it matters, but they have learned to discriminate what’s useful and what’s not. Here’s why:
They have other things on their minds
They use their time bettering themselves and focusing on things that are productive. With trying to excel in their careers and juggling a social life, they cannot let themselves fall into the hole of self-loathing caused by others’ criticisms. They have no time to think over petty commentary from a bitter friend or coworker.
They know they can’t control what others think of them
They understand that not everyone will like them, and they’re okay with that. They took the essential steps to stop being people-pleasers, and moved on to become strong and bold women. Being absorbed in trying to make others happy with them is not on their agenda.
Spending time trying to please others is too energy-consuming
They spend their time taking care of themselves before others when they need to. They focus on productivity and reaching for the stars, not the pit of despair caused by negativity. Although they do try to show appreciation for the ones who support them, they don’t give critics the satisfaction of breaking them down. They focus on their amazing assets and personality traits, not the negatives.
They are leaders, not followers
Bold women are too busy trying to change society’s norms to conform into the mold you set for them. They understand your opinion, but they do not want to be just another clone in the world. They do not want to be your doormat. They want to stand out, and they crave originality. Bold women run towards the taboo, rather than away from it.
