Quick story: I used to want everyone to like me and when someone didn’t, it would shake me to my core. No seriously, it would throw me into a tailspin.
What did I do?
How can I change?
Was it something I said?
I used to take it very personally because I used to pride myself on being someone with various groups of friends who “got along with everyone.”
Yea, maybe in high school.
Here’s the reality: just because someone doesn’t like you doesn’t necessarily mean you did anything wrong 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 is something you should never do.
In order to avoid you compromising anything, here’s my one tip you’ve got to understand early on: Other people disliking you is not a bad thing.
As long as you are embodying your true authentic self, nothing else matters.
By you embodying who you are and being so incredibly comfortable with yourself, it creates fear in people who still operate from the ego. It creates doubt in people who are insecure. It creates jealousy for others who envy your free spirit.
If you want to grow, heal, and evolve, you have to let go of wanting to be liked by everyone. Remember, you’ll never reach your greatest potential if you're trying to be all things to all people. Leave me a comment with your thoughts below!
