So heres the thing, I tend to give a lot of advice but that being said, most of the time I have no idea what I'm talking about and by no means am I qualified in any way. Take what you want from it- after all it's only my advice, doesn't mean that I am right.
The reality of it is, I have held myself back so much in this life, scared of not being accepted or liked by others, fear that I’m not “good enough”.
Well I’m here to say that that fucking sucks. How ridiculous is it that I will let the opinions and judgments of others influence who I am as a person. By not showing up as my authentic self I am disrespecting you, and myself in the process.
There are too many people on this planet, each one with their own opinion. To try and please everyone, is a suicide mission, you will inevitably fail and when you do.. you are going to be too exhausted to show up at all.
Screw what others think of you, the only thing that matters is what YOU think of you, and as long that’s positive, then congratulations, you’ve just hacked the secret to being happy and confident in life.
So take my advice and do yourself and everyone around you a favor, be yourself and show up for people the way YOU want to be treated, not the way you assume they want to be treated.
Simple as that!
