Somebody once told me,
"You cannot expect to change people. You have to change yourself."
A lot later I realised that this giggly buddy was quoting the wise words of Gandhi.
What do you do when people hate you, throw stones at you?
Take that hatred, pick up those stones and turn them into lovely flowers!
Often, a person's anger, hatred, and gossip towards us is simply suppressed dissatisfaction about their own life or misdirected feelings because you were a soft target. Continue to march to the beat of your own drum. Learn to be happy for no reason. Smile at yourself, smile at everyone you meet, and smile at every beautiful thing you see. There is enough malice, bigotry, and imbecility around us. We don't need to contribute to it. By attending to such negativity, we are simply wasting our own energies which could have otherwise been better spent on something more constructive.
And always remember that,
Others may judge you for not following their standards, but deep down they all wish they had the courage to do the same. Instead, be grateful to them, for they are the reason you're still a celebrity.
