the opinion of one, or even, is not fact (look how many people believed the world was flat and that the sun revolved around the earth).
the feelings of others, are not fact.
they are simply opinions and feelings that only have importance or truth for the individual holding them. often those opinions and/or feelings are outward projections of internal dialogue for the speaker; which has no relevance to you, unless you claim, create, concur, and consent.
so dear one, do not consent. do not concur. do not create. do not claim.
and most of all do not apologize for being your own beautiful self.
because You Are Beautiful Just As You Are!
