Oh, yeah! Loving this 💯
It REALLY, REALLY, REALLY doesn’t matter, not one FREAKING lick, if everyone loves what and who you are or what you stand for.
I’ve been telling my oldest this very thing. She’s always been the one who is the people pleaser, the one who wants to be friends with and be liked by everyone, and the one who will always find something nice and kind and positive to say, so she doesn’t have to hurt someone’s feelings.
And don’t get me wrong, that’s not a BAD way to be. (Reformed people-pleaser, right here 🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️) BUT.......it can be draining, and life-sucking, and leave you with lots of hidden disappointments too. Because, NEWSFLASH......everyone WON’T always like you. You, most likely, WON’T be capable of making everyone simultaneously happy, AND some people will just hate everything about YOU just because that’s how THEY function. But whose problem is that, REALLY??? What’s the saying??? “Pay close attention to those who don’t clap when you win.” That will tell you ALL you need to know about friends/acquaintances/family.
The world is a WHOLE LOT BIGGER than the Negative Nancies and the Bitter Betties. #selfcareisimportant #loveyourselfeveniftheworlddoesnt
