Caring about what others think – Lao Tzu Quote

lao tzu quote image picture inspirational quote care about what others think alway prisoner

  1. Other people really don’t care as much as you think. People tend to spend very little time thinking outside of themselves actually. Its a sad truth, but, people are generally ego-centric and think about most things in terms of “ME”. Sorry to break it to you, but people spend very little time thinking about you at all.
  2. People and their thoughts are constantly changing. Even if they think badly of you at the moment, there is a good chance they will forget or think differently in the future. So it doesn’t really matter.
  3. Its impossible to please everybody. This is a simple fact.
  4. Other people don’t have to live with your choices, but you do.
  5. Life is too short.

“Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner” – Lao Tzu

Many people harbour suppressed anger, guilt and resentment towards their parents. These are toxic and can manifest as various physical, psychological, and spiritual ailments.

Truth is, that your essence chooses your parents, YOU choose your parents.

All of the tensions resulting from your relationship with them are part of your souls path. The first thing we must do is realise that we chose them, then to realise that they are people just like you and me, with their own histories, flaws and egos.

Ask them about their childhood, maybe you will learn that they are manifesting parts of their ego that exist due to their specific upbringing.

Release.

Let go.

All that has happened in the past, it is gone.

Become the cause and not the effect, begin to fill them with unconditional love. This is one of the most significant steps in your spiritual journey.

If you don’t forgive your parents you will always be chasing the image of a perfect parent through relationships, friends, siblings and others.
