Does anyone ever tell you aren’t smart? Or aren’t beautiful? Or aren’t funny?
Maybe they’re right. Maybe you need to work on a few things. Maybe you aren’t up to their level.
Or, maybe they’re wrong. Maybe you’re just the opposite of what they’re saying. Smart. Beautiful. Funny.
Either way, why would you listen? If you had room to grow, are they someone worth learning from? And if they’re wrong and you are actually great, then you are a threat to them. And will be forever.
Yes, hearing the noise is okay. Because it’s important to know who you shouldn’t listen to.
