Saturday Stories - Nothing to prove

I was talking to someone a few weeks ago and she was telling me about the time that she shaved all her hair off because a man told her she would never do it as she was too attached to her hair. She shaved it all off to prove him wrong. Good on her.

Here's the thing. She really didn't need to do that because she has nothing to prove. When we trust ourselves we don't need to prove anything to anyone. If someone thinks you're attached to your hair, so what?
If someone has a negative opinion of you, so what?
Often people use these opinions as a way to manipulate us. They'll say something like "you're too attached to your hair" as a way to manipulate. Don't let them.

People are entitled to their opinions, it's not up to us to prove them right or wrong.
