Reality check: Who cares if people talk? People will judge anyway. That’s just how people are designed. Life is too short to live your life under people punya scrutiny.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. If you find yourself constantly trying to prove your worth to someone, you have already forgotten your value. Sometimes all you have to do is forget what you feel and remember what you deserve. Work on being in love with the person in the mirror who has been through so much but is still standing. Because sometimes walking away has nothing to do with weakness, and everything to do with strength. We walk away not because we want others to realize our worth and value but because we finally realize our OWN.
You need a hero? That’s what you have to become. Be your own hero!
