I used to want everyone to like me and when they didn’t, it would shake me to my core. No seriously, it would throw me into a tailspin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I used to take it very personal because I used to pride myself on being someone with various groups of friends who “got along with everyone.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Here’s the reality: just because someone doesn’t like you doesn’t necessarily mean you did anything to make them feel that way. If you can’t stand the thought of someone being displeased with you, you’ll be more likely to compromise your values which you should never do.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In order to avoid you compromising ANYTHING, here’s my one tip you’ve got to come to terms with early on: 𝐎𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐝𝐢𝐬𝐥𝐢𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐢𝐬 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐚 𝐛𝐚𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠.

As long as you’re embodying your true authentic self, nothing else matters. The only people who will be uncomfortable with this are people who are still operating from their ego.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

If you want to grow, heal, and evolve, you have to let go of wanting to be liked by everyone.
