We don’t need to change to please other people.
One of the most freeing things we learn in life it that we don’t have to like everyone and everyone doesn’t have to like us, and it’s perfectly OK.
As mother Teresa famously said, “some people come in our life as blessings. Some come in your life as lessons”.
This carefree attitude did not come overnight. I had to go through a tough phase first.
I practiced being who I thought other people wanted me to be. Still despite giving my best, I was always criticised, and never received a single word of appreciation. I allowed myself to take it, because I thought that one day they would realise their mistake and start liking me.
ONE DAY NEVER CAME!!
You don’t need someone who doesn’t like who you are.
You are beautiful, you are great, just the way you are. You are you, and that’s the greatest thing you could be.
You are you, and there is nobody like you out there, so keep being you. Every single person on this planet is one of a kind, and that’s one of the most magical things on this Earth.
If someone tells you to change who you are or encourages you to become someone you are not. Walk away.
Walk away from people who try to change you, because without being who you truly are you are NOBODY!!
