"You are the master of how you feel"
Its upto you to let anyones words, thoughts or actions affect you, right? Especially if the words dont give you any value, who decides if they should affect you or not?
On the other hand, If people are praising you, should you let it change your being and increase your happiness? Do you need this social approval to know who you are and what you are worth?
In our martial arts @bujinkanuae
We have th e concept of Fudōshin : 不動心 - a state of equanimity or imperturbability. It roughly translates to immovable heart or unshakeable spirit.
There is also the yogic concept of Equanimity - Upeksha : उपेक्षा
This state of mind, taught in both yoga and Buddhism, allows us to respond to all of life's fluctuations with a feeling of completeness.
In a world that craves for validation and insta likes, I wish for you the ability to recognise your worth and not let the outside world control how you feel!
