Let whoever think whatever. Just keep getting better every day.
If there is one thing on this planet that you do not have control of, it is what other people think. No matter how much our corrupt media tries to control what you, me and everyone else thinks, all they can do is put out propaganda. They can't actually control what you think. Do you think you have more power to affect people's thoughts than they do? You don't.
Too many people waste time worrying about what other people think of them. They worry about what people think about how they speak, what they say, what they write, how they look, how they dress, the list could go on and on. Quit worrying about what other people think! Let whoever think whatever. Just keep getting better every day.
This has not only become a plague on our society in general, but it has also infected the martial arts world. Many martial artists spend more time gossiping and trying to spin their image than they do training. This is one reason so many martial artists are faking their credentials and ranks, and buying themselves martial arts hall of fame trophies and certificates. They want others to think they are something special.
They are more concerned about what some hack thinks about them than they are about developing their own martial arts skills. This is not true martial arts, and it is definitely not the way of the warrior. What happened to true martial arts? What happened to character, integrity, honor, and humility in the martial arts?
Have the courage and the self-confidence to simply be yourself. Don't concern yourself with what everyone else thinks about how you live your life or what your background may be. Just keep working to improve yourself each and every day.
People worth knowing think for themselves and won't judge every part of your life; they are too busy living their own lives and improving themselves. It is only the fools, the trolls, the frauds, and the malicious scumbags who continuously concern themselves with everyone else's life. And I will tell you a secret - those people do not matter. No one respects those people or their opinions. What they think doesn't matter!
Instead of concerning yourself with what these small-minded fools think about you, just focus on improving yourself and becoming a better person. Leave these pathetic souls to wallow in their own depraved minds. While they are busy backbiting, gossiping, and libeling and slandering others, be busy moving forward and leave them in your dust.
