Not everyone is going to like you…
Today I’m coming to you from my balcony… giving you a glimpse into where I’ve been living now we’re no longer in the hustle and bustle of the city centre (I kinda miss the buzz, to be honest!)
But I do like being able to see the mountains. And I like still being close to the beach. I like a lot of things!
And, I’ll admit it, I also like to be liked.
And I know I’m not alone.
Although it comes from a good place ~ it’s nice to be nice to others, to belong, and to genuinely want to be helpful, thoughtful, and caring ~ there is also such thing as caring too much.
Being in a new relationship, I’m conscious of wanting to fit in with the family, wanting to be accepted, and wanting to be liked.
However, if you are a good person, a genuine person, and your motivations are pure, it shouldn’t matter what others think. Sometimes easier said than done, no?!?
Watch this week’s video to learn 3 harsh truths about caring a lot (dare I say too much) about what others’ think, that will save you a lot of precious time and energy.
Again, here are the three (somehow harsh!) truths:
- Not everyone is going to like you.
- No matter how hard you try, you cannot control others’ feelings or reactions towards you.
- People care so much less than you think they do!
And remember, as Don Miguel Ruiz shares in his book The Four Agreements, what others think of you is none of your business!
Are you someone who cares a little too much at times what others think? Or do you know someone else who does? Share this video with them ~ and let’s keep the conversation going.
Which truth most resonated most with you? And what are you going to do this week as a result?
I want to hear from you in the comments below.
Have a FAB week!
