Quote of the Day: C.S. Lewis
“We are what we believe we are” (C.S. Lewis, brainyquote.com).
Today I thought I would post a quote that focused around our point of view. In my opinion, I do agree with Lewis that our opinion of ourselves shape who we are. If we have a positive image of ourselves I think another person’s opinion, especially a negative one, would have little to no effect on our demeanor. We are proud of who we are and therefore do not take mean comments to heart. However, if people had a negative opinion of themselves they are easily swayed by other people’s opinions. I am not saying people with a more positive image do not care how other people view them I am just saying, from observation, I have noticed that people with negative self images seem to internalize these negative comments. I agree with Lewis that what we believe is important, but even the proudest individual can be broken if people constantly berate them. Hopefully, this is not the case with any of you, but if it is, I want to let you know that you are a wonderful person and to not let anyone bring you down. I hope this makes your day better!
