Be true to yourself and who you really are . Stop trying to please everyone around you. It gets very tiring to have to try to please this person and that person all the time by compromising what you really feel according to what's inside of you. Each one of us wants to receive approval and acceptance from others , I know. I suppose compromising what we really feel vs gaining others approval is okay once in a while , but if you find you are doing it too much, then I would re-evaluate what was going on . I believe we learn this as we get older of course !!
Accept who you are without any regrets. When you do things that are not genuine or a reflection of the real fundamental you, you will not be happy with yourself. In this world today, do we really need something else to make us unhappy ? The path ahead , for each one of us, must first start with self- acceptance...being true to yourself. Being true to yourself does not mean that you are inconsiderate or disrespectful of others. It means that you will not let others define you or make decisions for you that you should make for yourself.
It's a lot easier to make the journey down the road of life day by day..if we accept who we are . Don't you agree ??
