When it comes to you, there’s only one opinion that matters. Yours. So many of us are so wrapped up in what others think of us. We shift and morph our behavior and even our personality to get the most amount of people to like or approve of us.
I’m not a fan of this behavior. I don’t think it makes you a bad person, I just don’t think it’s any way to live. I’ll take five people who legitimately like me for me, over a thousand who only like a facade I’ve created. At that point, do you even have any real friends?
Also, it doesn’t feel good, right? I don’t think anyone wants to do this. I think they feel like they have to. Well, let me just say this. You don’t. Be happy with the handful of people who love you for you. They’re your people.
