It's pretty normal to meet toxic people through your life, just know that it isn't about you, it's about them, it's about their insecurities, because everyone would show what is inside of him, haters would show hate, and mature people would show maturity!
Although I wanted to be kind, to help people, and to never do harm, that wasn't enough for them, they were judging me, and they're going to judge no matter what you're going to do, so decide what you truly want, Do you want to spend the rest of your life pleasing people or doing what you love?! well below are some simple ways to help you deal with judgments:
1- Don't respond:
In fact we can't control people's reaction, the only thing that you can control is your own and the best reaction here is to not make any! You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.
People aren't against you, they are for themselves. People don't want you to be better than them, and that's why they'll keep judging you. You don't have to comment, don't respond to their rudeness, that would shut them down, because they only keep judging when you show that you're interested in what they're saying, but when you ignore them, they won't be able to criticize any further.
We often tend to defend ourselves once we feel like we're about to get hurt, this desire is fake, yet it affects us a lot. This desire, you can replace it with self-compassion, consider your worth and your value and that you don't need anyone's approval, you don't need to be liked by all of them. Live your life on your own expectations, don't make pleasing people a priority.
Your value doesn't decrease based on someone's inability to see your worth.
Sometimes you don't really need to get into every single fight, sometimes it's better to choose peace, when you know your worth, there is no necessity to prove it because you don't need others' approval and no one can make you doubt yourself.
I've been doubted, judged and criticized a lot, especially by my very loved ones, they would push me to be the way they want me to be, they would push me to give up on who I am and on what I believe in, but in the end no one really knows you as much as you do, and no one should make you doubting yourself, you're capable even if no one did believe in you, you're strong enough even if no one is standing by you! There are many successful people out there, who didn't find anyone to believe in them, they've been doubted, called crazy, rejected, criticized and judged, yet they never gave up on what they believed in, that's why they made it, and so you can!
Don't let anyone's ignorance, hate, drama or negativity stop you from being the best person you can be.
People will keep judging you unless, you do nothing, say nothing and be nothing, so be cool with that, instead you should worry when people aren't judging you because that means that you've been like the majority of them!
So take it lightly, very lightly, there is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally, anyway they don't know what your journey is all about and everything is better when you decide that you don't care.
