It takes consistent actions or behaviors to earn a reputation. In fact, its quite an achievement.
Own the reputation you've earned, instead of hiding behind smoke and mirrors.
If you don't like the reputation you have earned, then change it. Do the work from the inside. Don't waste time trying to convince people that the reputation is false. Make it false. Your reputation will follow your lead.
It's only in complete transparency that you will find truth, happiness, honesty, love, and trust. It's only hear that you can experience spiritual growth, and become the highest you. Do the work, and those around you will take notice.
