Matthew's Mind

Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly.

It’s not that I don’t care what you think… Because I do.

It’s also not that I don’t care what others think… I do.

But if you add all that up, the sum of all the opinions of everyone I trust… well, the thing is… I just care a little more about what I think. And you shouldn’t take that as rude or self centered; it’s not where I’m coming from.

But understand that I’ve witnessed most people entirely too tied up in someone else’s opinion about them. What will Sue, Greg or Malik think about that? What will they say?

If you’re true to yourself, who cares?!?

Most people act everyday based on how they’ll be judged. Putting on a fifty pound vest to walk through the day with an incredible burden; that’s self limiting and weighs down what you believe you’ll accomplish. (Unless Sue, Greg or Malik think you can do it, right?) It’s insane! Most times, other people aren’t thinking about your decisions to begin with, and the amount of time they are is infinitely smaller than the time you’ve put into it.

So give me your opinion, I sincerely want it. I’ll take it in and soak it up. But that doesn’t mean I’m moving ahead because of it.

One thought on “What They Think

  1. Love this! Life is all about perception. Believe in yourself is step 1. If you can do that nothing can stop you!
