Being disliked

Get used to people disliking you. If you are a person, you have an opinion. If you have an opinion, someone disagrees with you. Heck, some people disagree with you without even knowing you or your opinion.

Who cares? Having an opinion means you care about something. If people dislike you for caring about something, what does it matter to them?

Once you get over the fact that people will dislike you, you feel free to do whatever you want. Free from external opinions that can have an extraordinary effect on your effort, and hence your outcomes.

So, get used to people disliking you. Just don’t make them hate you.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
