We all seem to think we always need to be perfect for everyone. That’s where most of us go wrong and get confused with what WE want to do.
We can never be completely perfect, but we can try our best. Not try our best to be what someone else wants us to be. But what You want You to be.
You don’t have to be what you don’t want to be for anybody, even if they are close to you. You should never change just because someone tells you to. If they want to give you advice: smile, nod, politely say “thank you” then think about. Decide for yourself if it is truly the best thing for you.
No one knows you better then yourself. Even if sometimes you may need to take a day to reintroduce yourself to the Real You.
There are all kinds of people in the world. We are all different. Nobody should expect you to fit into their little mold.
Never let someone make you feel less of yourself just because you are not who they think you should be. Be You.
