Nadia Buari has taken to her social media page to write a small piece of selfworth, saying the happiness one seeks from friends and family lies within them, as what others think or say about you is non of your business.
The Ghanaian actress who has been away from the movie scene to start a family, said people should learn to love themselves, and not worry too much about what the media, or others say about them, as their opinions does not count.
She said worrying too much about public approval is a waste of time and could lead to a serious low self-esteem.
Although the actress did not say whether or not someone or media has written anything derogatory about her, as she went on and on about self loving, as if she is writing to support the campaign about social media bullying.
Taking to her social media page, she said:
From an early age we work to get approval, whether it was proving to our parents that we could ride a bike without training wheels, or taking our first step—caring what other people think seems evitable.
Through the years it can become a problem for us, as it can cripple us emotionally and spiritually. We need to get to the point where we don’t care what the media says, how colleagues feel about us, or live in state of constant fear or agony of what others think.
The other person is not going to worry about it, or stay awake at night upset that you’re offended. U can’t be responsible for other people’s words, actions, or decisions as hurtful as they can be.
We all want to be congratulated for a job well-done from even acquaintances, but what happens when they don’t, or you are not acknowledged in some way.
Yes, it’s painful, but now it’s time to regroup, refocus, and rise above petty people, things, sin, and caring what others think of you. They don’t know your back story, but God does.
Worrying about what others think is human, but when it’s to a point where our joy is being choked, then we need to become proactive, not reactive.
Take people out of your courtroom of justice, and offer them to God, and also humble yourself. It’s simply not worth it for your health, or hindering your walk–period!
