"People believe I am what they see Me as, rather than what they do not see. But I am the Great Unseen, not what I cause Myself to be in any particular moment. In a sense, I am what I am not. It is from the Am-notness that I come, and to it I always return."
Neale Donald Walsch  

We all have our own 'world', our own way of looking at and understanding our environment and the people within it. A situation may be the same but the interpretation of that situation by two individuals may be vastly different.

Reality is created by your perception.

There is a great quote by Dr. Wayne Dyer that says - "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."  . That quote is a great foundation for what you will discover in this article.

Your perception creates your reality. Here is an illustration:

A couple bought a donkey from the market. On the way home, a boy commented:

"Very stupid. Why neither of them ride on the donkey?"  

Upon hearing that, the husband let the wife ride on the donkey. He walked besides them. Later, an old man saw it and commented:

"The husband is the head of the family. How can the wife ride on the donkey while the husband is on foot?"  

Hearing this, the wife quickly got down and let the husband ride on the donkey. Further on the way home, they met an old Lady. She commented:

"How can the man ride on the donkey but let the wife walk. He is no gentleman."  

The husband thus quickly asked the wife to join him on the donkey. Then, they met a young man. He commented:

"Poor donkey, how can you hold up the weight of two persons. They are cruel to you."  

Hearing that, the husband and wife immediately climbed down from the donkey and carried it on their shoulders.

It seems to be the only choice left. Later, on a narrow bridge, the donkey was frightened and struggled. They lost their balance and fell into the river.

You can never have everyone praise you, nor will everyone condemn you. Never in the past, not at present, and never will be in the future.
Thus, do not be too bothered by others words if our conscience is clear.
