I knew if I wrote a blog about HRC, that it would be potentally polarizing. She brings up a lot of strong feelings in people. My reason for writing the blog becomes, then, more appropriate. I want to write about not caring what people think of me.

Coco Chanel has a great quote which I used to adore: “I don't care what you think about me. I don't think about you at all.” However, since I recently discovered she was a Nazi sympathizer (how that is different from being a regular Nazi, I'm not sure) I don't want to give her anymore press. I always did find the quote a bit cold, which makes more sense now.

Anyway, I'm sure this is something that started from birth, youngest of 4, it was a survival tactic. As a child it was okay, as an adult, let's change those neural pathways.

That doesn't mean I don't want to listen to (some well chosen) other people, I want to make sure my voice is a bit louder than theirs in my Life.

As my friend Sonia reminds me, what other people think is none of my business.

Back to Ms. Clinton, she has a new book out and from what I've read, I think it shows that she has gotten quite good at not caring what other people think of her. She has withstood "the slings and arrows of outrageous misfortune." And she keeps getting back up.

Keep getting back up.

    Klein Cottage seems to be okay and that's a step in the right direction...

    What You Think of Me is None of My Business! I use to get so tangled up in being a people pleaser and what people thought of me that of course I was no longer living my own life. That book changed my perspective.

    So looking forward to reading her book, appears my daughters also ordered the book :).
    Perhaps a book club topic?

    Resilience is quite the virtue! Had not heard re CoCo's Nazi ties; disheartening.
    As we get older we all evolve strengths & opinions wise.

    I know a lot of people who ordered the book on CD instead of buying the book as they usually do. They said they want to hear the story told in her voice.

    As to Coco – not unusual for the French – many were Nazi Sympathizers, what that means is that they did not belong to the Nazi Party even in their respective countries but they would not have lifted a finger to help anyone either

    what others think useful to know but your own counsel ought to be something to rely on and to develop (from the moment you can).
