Some people will only love you if you fit into their box… and I say to you, DON’T be afraid to disappoint them. Do not change to conform to anyone’s idea of who you have the right to be. Be you! Be Unique! Be individual!
If anyone expects you to be another you; then they don’t deserve you. Love me as I am, or leave me as I am – that has to be your motto. Don’t let anyone dictate to you what your true self should and must be. Do not be self shamed.
Live your life with the aim to impress no one but you. Do the things which make you happy. Surround yourself with persons who add to your person, not take away from you. Love you as you are. Be you as you are. Be true to your idea and image about you.
Too many times we are forced into trying to please others and in the process lose our spirit and our true selves. I say to you – fight this urge to become more acceptable to someone else. Your character and strength is not built upon what someone thinks of you. There’s a saying that the person you pursue is a reflection of you, your ambition, and your level of class or lack, thereof. I strongly believe that.
So, when you look in the mirror and you see that image staring right back at you – this is YOU. And what matters most is how you see yourself.
The way you treat yourself sets the standards for others; so love you enough to not contort to fit in anyone’s box.
