The trick is to not care. And, go be yourself at your best.
That’s what I tell myself every morning.
My favorite saying in the world is from Buddha: “Act always as if the future of the universe depends on what you do, while laughing at yourself for thinking whatever you do matters.”
It’s about being engaged enough to enjoy life (flow), while emotionally detached enough to remain care-free.
It’s about doing good work and caring about making the right effort, but not worrying about what others think about you. People are too obsessed with themselves to think about you. Trust me on this.
The trick is to not care, to not brood. Your petty feelings are legit and you’re entitled to those feelings, but don’t let them drag you down. Be brave enough to keep moving, however much it hurts.
Come on. You are top notch. Go out. Be your best self. Kick ass. And, don’t give a shit.
