Have you ever wondered why some people naturally gravitate towards you, and others don’t? Could your personality, style or “vibe,” be the reason for the love, yet also the hate? It’s evident that everyone you meet won’t be fond of you, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t a likable person. What matters is whether or not you like yourself. If you don’t, you’ll take offense to everything someone says to you, regardless of how large or small it is. I used to be that way, until I stopped consenting to negativity. I don’t long for validation and acceptance anymore, so my days of people pleasing and impressing others are over. More than anything, the only person I try to be better for, is myself. Even then, there are times when I’m not good enough for me. “If only they knew,” is something I constantly say to myself, because for some strange reason, people seem to think I have it all, and when they do, I let them. I don’t try to change anyone’s thoughts or opinions about me, because it doesn’t matter what I say or do, if they don’t like me, they still won’t. I spent a lot of years trying to correct issues people had with me, when there was nothing that needed to be fixed, except for their low self-esteem. I wasn’t the one that was broken, they were!

There’s nothing wrong with change. Just don’t do it because someone tells you to. Do it because it’s what’s best for you!

Until next time my NOTE takers!
