Words of Wisdom: “Let Them Talk”-Angelique Kidjo

I hope that these Words of Wisdom from singer-songwriter Angelique Kidjo hits home for someone! Especially if you’re letting what other people think or say dictate your moves.

In an interview with George Stroumboulopoulos, Angelique advised people to stop worrying about what people may think of them. “Live your life to the full…everything you do,” she shared. “And as long as you’re not hurting anybody and you’re happy doing what you do, let them talk.”

We freeze up sometimes behind what other people say or think (or how we THINK they may react). I honestly wonder how many dreams and gifts have been killed behind caring about what other people thought. How many trips and fun activities, how many life-enriching moments have been lost? I know I’ve delayed some things for myself because of that myself. It’s a sad reality.

However, if you know that you have an idea or goal that you are passionate about and want to try, don’t let what other people think completely determine your next steps. Yes, it’s important to seek wisdom and move with intention, but there’s a difference between going to people who can guide you and losing sleep behind people who clown your ideas or goals.

People are always going to find SOMETHING to talk about. Let them flap their gums.
