You are an actor, there are several viewers, analysts, commentators and critics to whatever you do.
As soon as we are born, we become actors on the stage of life, people look at us and assess our actions.
People will assess you based on their peculiar knowledge, experience and orientation. Their views about you are mostly dependent on how they see you, not merely who you are.
Do not let the opinions of others discourage you. Be of yourself and do what is right.
