Pattern to Break #4:
Words are just words. It’s not until we accept or reject them that they affect us. We never want to be accused of having a big ego, and we want others to like us, so we tend to mix up our handling of compliments and insults.
You can allow a compliment
to make your day,
but don’t ever let an insult
If you’re doing your best and someone doesn’t think that’s good enough, then they can go find someone else.
Just don’t let it bring you down.
