We live in a society in which individualism is a reality, people criticize more than they praise, something that can make you feel that someone is embarrassing you at some point in your life. Maybe you spend hours and hours exercising and eating healthy, there will always be someone who does not approve of your body or what you do … there will always be someone who has enough time to criticize others.

Do what you want, but do it with enthusiasm because there will always be someone who criticizes you for that. It is possible once you have wondered if you are good enough, especially if you have an Instagram or Facebook account and you receive criticism from people who do not even know you but who feel they have the power to criticize what you do or what you say.

You need to realize that you have to love yourself, no matter what size your body is or what others say about it. This is what really matters to anything else. Not all enemies are the same, and the way you react each time doesn’t have to be the same either.  You have the right to divert their negativity and insecurities to another place, but they do not impact you.

If there are people who are trying to embarrass you, both in your life and on your social networks, follow these tips so that what they say does not affect you.

Turn their hate into your power

When you read, hear, or think about the hurtful comments you’ve received, use this as an opportunity to grow and become stronger. Sticking with the cycle of pain won’t get you going anywhere, but getting on with your life and being happy can inspire those around you, both in person and online.

Use your ignorance to educate

As you go through the transformations of your body and mind, you will probably realize that many people do not believe in wonderful things such as that there are women who are good at sports or who know how to drive well. Perhaps sharing on your social networks how well you do some things can open the eyes of your family, friends and followers of your social networks . Letting people enter your world (always with care and taking into account the safety of your social networks) and sharing the knowledge you have in things that you love, will show that you have much more to contribute than what others think.

Respond assertively

Being an assertive person allows you to stand up for yourself and express your feelings in a respectful way without having to offend anyone. Also, knowing that you defended yourself does wonders for your self-confidence and others will know that you have enough strength inside you to defend yourself against any hurtful comment.

To foolish words on deaf ears

Choose to ignore those who are trying to humiliate you to show that you are above any drama. Regardless of how much you want to defend yourself from someone, the more you ignore them, the less likely they are to attack you because they are not getting the response they want. You’ve heard it before, but we’ll tell you again: sometimes you just have to be the biggest person. At first when you ignore them they may try to embarrass you even more, but when this happens be strong and continue to ignore because this way, they will get tired and stop trying to humiliate you.

Be the owner of your person

Treat others who try to embarrass you with compassion because they are actually insecure people who do not accept each other. Never lower your standards to someone else’s level. Never let someone’s comments define you. Knowing that your words are often a distraction from your own insecurities and low self-esteem. Do what you do for yourself, and never seek approval. Forget negativity and always focus on the positive things in life. Remember, just look for good vibes to enjoy your life!
