Do you worry that they don't know "the whole story" and you need to update them so they know "the truth"?
I used to be that way! BIG TIME!
✔️I wanted people to know and understand that I was a good person and only had good intentions!
✔️ I wanted people to like me!
✔️ I wanted to clear up "stories" other people had told about me.
✔️ I wanted to "control" what other people thought about me!
Guess what??? It doesn't matter what other people think of you! I know, I know... Our brains will tell us differently!
In all seriousness, we can't control what other people think of us! EVER! I haven't figured out a way and trust me, I've tried!
Do you know it's okay for others to be wrong about you? For reals! It's okay if they heard about you from someone else that doesn't "like" you. That person has the ability to have and make their own opinion of you! And even their opinion doesn't matter!
The only person that you can control of how they think of you is YOU!
So what are your thoughts about yourself? Do you talk kindly to yourself when you mess up? Or do you call yourself names? What would you tell a friend that messed up? I know I would tell them, "That's okay... We all make mistakes! You got this girl!" Talk that way to yourself!
Things that people think about you may be partly true and some things may be partly wrong.... And that's okay!
