Being an artist you often encounter people ready to put you in a box (writers, journalists, fans..). They keep you there in their head with their limited view and try to define who they perceive you are. This often happens with lazy writers who don’t do research and don’t come with respect – young or not so young. You can feel marginalized or diminished momentarily. It happens. I say and live in the realm and saying to you as I do to myself – know your worth and don’t remain silent if you don’t feel you’re getting what you deserve – and then move on. We only have control over ourselves. Take their limited view as a reflection of their narrow view, their problem – and not a reflection of you, your achievements or who you are as a person and human being. Something happened today that I didn’t like and it reminded me of this quote:
“We must not allow other people’s limited perceptions to define us.” – Virginia Satir
Virgina Satir was a key figure in the development of family therapy. When I share quotes, I like to know something about the person.
Great day to all!
