If someone says you have no friends, it can be quite hurtful. It’s normal to feel down and even a bit embarrassed when hearing something like that.
But, the first thing to remember is that you don’t need anyone’s validation for your worthiness.
You are enough just as you are! You shouldn’t let people’s opinions define who you are or how much value you have in life.
Sometimes, it’s good to take a step back and consider why someone might say something like this. Is this person coming from a place of kindness or malice? Are they naturally blunt or do they mean ill? Consider the context of the situation before responding.
That said, if the person meant it maliciously or unkindly, the best thing to do is ignore the comment altogether and focus on building yourself up instead.
You never know what battles people struggle with internally, so accept that you can’t please everyone – even if you wanted to.
Hold onto your self-respect and use any negative comments as an opportunity for personal growth instead.
Embrace them without criticism because any criticisms only tell you about their limitations and not yours!
