To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing – Aristotle
How can you handle people that feel offended? We all have our own personal beliefs, and when they are challenged and questioned a lot of people may feel offended. Every opinion has an opposite.
You have to know that what you are doing makes sense. Sometimes you may offend someone and you don’t even know it. But remember, you can’t please everyone.
How do you deal with this? Don’t take it personally. What other people are experiencing is a reflection of their own experience not yours. You are not their problems, but many times people feel that you are the cause of their problems and they come after you.
To stop worrying you have to trust yourself 100%. Not worrying is when you have an unconditional love towards yourself. Not caring what other people think is the greatest form of self love.

But when people feel offended, when they do take it personally you have to see the bigger picture. It’s all about using discernment which is seeing where people are coming from, putting yourself in their shoes.
It is wonderful that we all have different beliefs and opinions. That’s what makes the world go round.
You need this friction to really get the full experience of life. Sometimes people love you one day then they hate you the next day. But the only thing that matters is how you see yourself.
It’s all about resonance and frequency. Not everyone is going to be attracted to what you say, but that’s ok.
Allow people to talk about how they see it, but just keep it moving.
