My shaikh Hazrat Maulana Jalil Ahmed Akhoon sb damat barakatuham shares an arabic couplet which says that when a person keeps himself clean off his illicit desires he has beauty even if he has dirty clothes.
Piety or taqwa is the most admirable beauty one could have.
Let’s strive for it by making strong intention to leave everything that displeases Allah swt, performing Dhikr, and making a strong companionship with those who are pious.
When people laugh at you because of observing and practicing any sunnah this should give you strength that you’re on the right track and have some bruises to show to your Lover swt.
Prophet Muhammad sallahoalaihiwasallam also had to bear the resentment and hootings on the street of Makkah and Taif. This resemblance is itself has a soothing effect.
Quran elaborates that those who love Allah swt do not care for the criticism that they face from the society.
(یُجَاہِدُوۡنَ فِیۡ سَبِیۡلِ اللّٰہِ وَلَا یَخَافُوۡنَ لَوۡمَۃَ لَآئِمٍ ؕ ذٰلِکَ فَضۡلُ اللّٰہِ یُؤۡتِیۡہِ مَنۡ یَّشَآءُ ؕ )
[Surah Al-Ma’idah 54]
Who strive in the way of Allah and are not afraid of the reproach of any critic.
