I think everyone goes through that time in life, where you feel pressured to make everyone like you. Usually it is around high-school. Let me tell you something: people liking you or not, it doesn’t matter.
I too went through that phase, where I thought it was important to have people like me. I would do what everyone wanted me to, try to rise to their expectations. people at school and even in my family. And I found out the more I tried, the more they wanted me to change.
I am lucky to be in a point of my life where I can say I don’t really care if someone like me or accepts me, as long as they respect me. Respect is the most important, the rest doesn’t matter. But there are so many people out there who still suffer with this issue!
Guys…it doesn’t matter if someone likes you or not. It doesn’t matter if you like someone or not. The most important thing is being respectful and not letting that get into your life and relationships. It doesn’t matter what someone wants for you, you need to live for yourself, do the things you like and think are right. Make your own mistakes, take your own falls and get back up. Live your life for yourself. Do not stop living or change yourself into something someone else thinks is better.
In the end, it doesn’t matter. What matters is you and those who love you.
