Sometimes being honest with ourself is the hardest thing in the world to do. To admit we are wrong, we have been in denial, we made a mistake, we hurt someone, they hurt us, to admit that we are not quite good enough at something we are trying to do or to realise that we are not living our truth.
The only way to have a happy and fulfiling life is to be yourself and be true to who you are. Stop making excuses, stop trying to please others and listen to your inner voice. The truth will set you free if you have the courage to listen and make changes.
How much time and energy do you waste trying to please other people? Doing things for others that you don’t want to do? How often do you do something or not do something because you are worried about what other people will think about you?
Let me be blunt, what other people think of you is not important and it is none of your business!
It is NOT possible to keep everyone happy or for everyone to like you. People tend to judge you in a glance these days without ever having spoken to you or knowing anything about you. So I ask you, why should you care what they think? Likewise, a friend or family member may disagree with decisions you make, so what? You make your decisions for you based on your life, your needs, your wants etc.. it is none of their business!
Live your life your way. Be who you are and who you want to be. The people who love you will support you regardless and anyone elses opinion does not have to impact on you. Remember people are always projecting their ‘issues’ onto you. Their thoughts and opinions are coloured by their life experience, beliefs, rules they have been thought etc.. No one has to agree with you, just be sure what you do is coming from a good place, with a good intention and that it feels right.
