Opinions are just projections

It’s liberating when you realize that people’s opinions of you are almost always projections of how they see themselves.

In other words, when the people close to you malign you and call you names, see it as them telling you exactly how they feel about themselves in that moment.

So the next time someone in your orbit says something positive or negative about you, see it as an inroad to how that person sees himself or herself in that moment.
