Our brains are like sponges.
They soak up everything they hear and see whether it is positive or negative.
So, allowing others to have direct access into your psyche is dangerous.
Take charge of what you let in by thinking of your mind as a recording device that repeats what it hears over and over again unless you specifically tell it no.
No thoughts that limit your possibilities from others or yourself.
You can’t control what is said, but you can control what repeats in your subconscious.
