If people, their opinions and attention. If the thing which matters to you the most is " others" then you need to introspect your ways. Then you need to think about your position in life. Then you must ask the following questions to yourself: Do I love myself? Can I be confident enough to undertake everything on my own? The answer you will encounter will be "No." And in this you will realize that if people govern your life then you are no less than a puppet.
If how people behave with you governs your life then you are in a disastrous state. If they love you, you feel loved if they like you, you feel liked and if they leave you, you just become indifferent. Why? Because you never feel yourself as worthy.
People must never govern your life. You can feel loved if they love you but you can't be dependent on them for that love. You need to nurture that self love within you. If people define you better than you then you really need to introspect.
I realized this a month ago and to all the youngsters like me who just limit themselves because of their belief and what others think of them. Remember you are the shining moon in the sky. Which is lovely and stunning besides all its flaws. Be that moon who is no less or no more than the sun and who believes in the power of its beauty.
Lots of love everyone.
~ You are enough! Believe this.~
