It Doesn’t Matter What They Think

There was a recent post on Tyler Perry’s Instagram page where he, in my opinion, rightfully boast about his work ethic.

In the post, he takes a brief video of a few scripts from some of his hit television shows.

Let me preface this by saying Tyler Perry does no wrong in my eyes, so what I think starts with a bias.

I loved the post mentioned above so much I reposted in my IG stories because Tyler Perry inspires me.

I follow lots of writers and different types of blogs and what they think often pop up on my feed. I was shocked to see the backlash received from the post.

I read things like he needs to hire other writers or that he was selfish, or they can tell he’s the only one who writes for his shows.

I was shocked because Tyler Perry, in my opinion, is the American dream where I come from. He came from poverty and abuse, but he worked hard, believed in himself, and followed his dreams. His book, Higher Is Waiting, documents the things he went through and overcame to get where he is today, and he inspires others to do the same.
You don’t have to be a fan of his work; as much as I admire him, all of his work isn’t for me, but his work ethic can’t be denied. And even if you don’t like his television shows or movies, somebody does.

The reactions got me to thinking about people in general and how easy it is for them to critique others. If Tyler Perry, me, or you listen to the thoughts and opinions of others, we’d never move forward and get things done. And if you notice, the people that have the loudest opinions are usually the people not doing much, so they find it necessary to judge others for doing what they consider too much.

Everything isn’t for everybody, and that’s okay.

Follow your dream-it doesn’t matter what they think.
