✍Never sacrifice who you are…

 

I’d like to ask you a couple of simple questions.

What if you could stop caring what other people think about you?

What difference would that make in your world?

Sometimes caring what others think seeps into every area of our life and it has a bigger impact on us than we might think. 

Far too many of us do things, or don’t do things, because we care what other people think.Our lives aren’t really our own. We’re not always doingthings because we believe in them, but because it’s expected, based on how we think other people see u.

“What would my colleagues think if I voiced my opinion and it was different from theirs?”

“If I change direction at school, in my career, in my life what would those closest to me think or have to say?”

What kind of life do we live when it’s mainly dictated by what other people think?

Especially when you consider life is so short that you don’t have time to live someone else’s life AND do the one thing that makes you unique.Imagine the possibilities of treasuring your uniqueness.Of never sacrificing who you are or who you want to become because someone else has a different perspective of you.

It’s time to love who you are both within and without as you move forward in life and stop caring what other people think about you.

Never sacrifice who you are, or who you aspire to be, because someone else has a problem with it.

 Instead, learn to love who you are inside and out as you forge ahead to your future.

Keep smiling 😊😊

  1. I did this for all too many years. I was never enough for my ex. Where your hair this way, wear your makeup darker, I like that dark sultry. I was never who he wanted me to be. 18 years. I am finally ME!! Simple, gal who is fun. Love hiking, biking, and nature. All the things he hates. I will never again not be me…

  2. I thoroughly agree – don’t sacrifice yourself for the sake of others. But there is a difference between that and not listening to what others have to say – sometimes they are trying to change you for the better, and that should be considered. Also, you sometimes do have to care what others think, especially if you’re working with them; so that’s why professional reputation is important.

    On the other hand, if you’re working in a creative field, it’s important to be original so don’t follow trends! I guess it’s up to you to find a good balance 🙂
