The jet set world has taught me an important lesson, the fundamentals of Not giving a damn about what people think.
This cliché is something that we need to master in our lives, because otherwise we’ll limit ourselves to other peoples energies and opinions. What a waste of life!
Everyone in this world is judgemental, is something we all do (some people more, some people less).
The jet set world is slightly different, people judge each other even MORE. This requires you to grow a thick skin of self protection if you want to last in this bubble.
There are times when I – literally speaking – Hate the entire jet set scene and the people in it, because the judgemental character gets to me. It’s tiring and sometimes you wish people could cut each other some slack and become more humble.
I then realise that there is no point of me being angry at something that cannot be changed. That the only thing I have power of changing is my own mind-set and how I behave. So I gave up my hatred and started working on myself instead.
Before I used to care a lot what people thought of me. It felt important taking care of my reputation and not being categorised as a particular type. I was extremely concerned about my image, it became like an obsession.
I reached a point of an AHA-moment when I noticed, that even women with immaculate reputation would have evil eyes judging them for whatever silly reason. There was simply no escape from negative words of mouth no matter how well you played the jet-set game.
So I gave up.
And now enjoy a happy life of “I don’t give a fucks!”
People will ALWAYS find something bad to say about you.
People will always tweak the reality, or even lie about you to fulfil their own needs of self-validation.
People are messed up and you will come across confused souls who will try to control you with their power of potentially ruining your reputation.
Don’t let them control you. The only way you can do this is to not care.
I must say it feels very liberating walking in to a room of judging eyes and not feel affected if they think you are a gold digger, slut, escort, prostitute, wannabe, broke, fake, thief, loser etc (any negative attribute out there really!). It just doesn’t matter.
It’s also very liberating not having the need to control what other people think. Just accepting that people will always think all kinds of shit in their heads, and that we can’t do anything about it.
It’s all about letting go and focusing on living a happy and carefree life instead, where you don’t get affected by other peoples negativity.
In the jet set world, you need to do yourself this favour, otherwise you’ll drive yourself to insanity!
