In essence, who cares about what other people think of you? They do not walk in your skin, you do. Their opinions are based on what they recognize about themselves in you and nothing more. It is something you have no control over. Being yourself means to be free in mind, body, and Soul. Do not compromise this for anyone, ever. If you do, you will resent the person that took away your freedom to be yourself, and you will end up hating yourself for allowing yourself to lose your own freedom. Freedom to be yourself is the greatest gift from the Divine and it needs to be respected and honoured, always. With that token, do not try to take this freedom away from others either and always allow them and inspire them to be themselves.
