The trick is how to give them back that power, even if they continue throwing it back at you. As a yoga teacher, you will face this many, many times.
If I tell you that you are beautiful, the answer is thank you. If I say that you are an inspiration to me, the answer could be something like, I am flattered, or I am happy about that. If I tell you that you are a guru, the answer could be, aren't we all?
Most people don't know how precious they are and that we all have something to offer. We sometimes have the role of reminding them.

I swear, I do feel like an alien in a human body sometimes, because I have had very close to the same type of experience. I have absolutely no desire to be a leader, unless it is to empower and teach others to be leaders themselves. And I can't help it that I have been interested in stuff most people don't want to know about all my life, and that occasionally this seems to call attention to myself whether I want it to or not.
Thankfully, here I am just one of the contributors, and I can share what appeals to me without feeling different. I've hated that feeling of being different my whole life. But then, I don't want to be like the masses either, so I guess I'll just be myself and not worry about it. Or, try not to anyway.
Strange world we live in.
