“No one can dictate who you are…”

“Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people” – Prince.

While I can’t say I’m all that knowledgeable about Prince or his career, this post on my Teitter feed this morning spoke to me. I worry too much about this and need to embrace the fact that I have no control over how others see me… and that it doesn’t actually matter to me in the long run, these opinions of relative strangers. What matters is my opinion of myself, and the influence of people close to me.
