What do you do when you feel like the whole world is against you?

Don’t react.

The whole world isn’t really against you; but important people in your world might be, perhaps by not affirming or supporting you in a direction you want to go.

Here are 2 steps of not reacting (how to do nothing):

(1) Ask yourself: Could I be missing something? Could those against me be seeing or sensing something I’m not aware of?

Your immediate reaction to rejection and judgment is probably running away or fighting to defend yourself (to “make them all see!”). But you don’t have a complete perspective; none of us do. You’re not omniscient.

We should all always want to grow as people.

So lean in close instead of fighting or pulling away. Carefully weigh your opponents’ words and actions, sifting through for any hints of truth.

And (2) rest in the fact that you can’t be something your not.

Despite what anyone else might want, you can’t force the way you feel or see things to change.

In the end, your life is your life. Your experience is your experience. Your perspective is your perspective. Not reacting just helps make your life, experience, and perspective more positive, beneficial, and honest.

And that’s how you eventually find a world (the right world . . . your world) made of those that truly will support you for who you really are.

  1. I would also recommend that your readers consider building their own self value and self worth so they have the strength to do what they feel is right regardless of what others might think. If they have that strength they won’t be affected as much by others opinions.

    • Definitely, Scott. Great point. That seems to be one of the first necessary steps to growth, change, control (not reacting), and then finding the right way(s) to bring your value to the world.
