“… because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
– Dr. Seuss, children’s author
Be authentic. To thine own self be true.
But what if people don’t like us, or even reject us? There has never been a person who ever pleased everyone. The best we can do is to please first ourselves and then those in our lives who truly matter.
You can stop being a chameleon, constantly trying to change in order to please those around you. In fact, it is the natural human state of things to become more of who you truly are.
Determine what you value, what really makes you tick and your fundamental beliefs – and shout them from the rooftops. The people who matter will pick up your signal, and those who don’t were never really tuned in the first place.
