The need to conform your perception of yourself to what others may or may not think is one sure way to self destruction.
The desire to fit into a tag as described by other people will only guarantee heart break.
The attempt to follow conventions and their definition of what you should be or do to be accepted will only lead you to frustration and despondency.
Contending to satisfy everyone’s demand on your person and response will only usher in disgruntlement and circumvention.
So, today and every day for the rest of your life, accept and remember this truth: “No matter who you are, what you look like, or what you share with the world, there will always be someone who doesn’t approve of you.
You are who you are, and you’re enough.
It isn’t your job to conform to their idea of what constitutes a “worthwhile” human being.
Instead of focusing on all of the people who don’t approve of you, try to take some time today to remind yourself of all the people who do appreciate and accept you.
They’re the people who matter. To them, you matter.
Let go of the rest.”
