THIS IS ME.
Do you ever live life trying to be someone your not? Trying to make people happy, and be the latest trend? If so, does this make you happy? Why do we have so much trouble just being ourselves? Who made up this rule that we have to be someone or something particular?
I have lived a large part of my life being a “people pleaser”. If you ask me, “are you a people pleaser?” I’d say no! But when it boils down to it, I really am. Or was. I’m trying to just be myself, and learn to practice saying no. I have always sought the approval of others. I think that’s where this people pleaser thing came from. We moved around a ton when I was young, so I didn’t have friends very long. So when I did have friends, I wanted to make sure they liked me, and that they were happy. I also lied a lot!haha, I know that is hard to believe. I even told some kids in the 2nd grade my uncle owned a bubble gum factory and I could get them endless amounts of bubble gum. I think after a month of them asking where the bubble gum was, they caught on to my games. Oops.
So I stopped lying, but I think It’s easy to believe the lies out there in the world. Like, “you have to be like everyone else to make it” Or….”you have to drink to fit in” you fill in your blank. Lots of lies floating around out there.
I think If we can just learn to be ourself, that’s when people really like us. And if not, they can go find somebody else to boss around. Life is TOO SHORT to always worry about what everyone else is thinking. We are missing life, and missing out on who we are really meant to be. A really smart guy I heard at church, Pete Wilson, said it best. If you want to sell ice cream, and this is your passion, and you have always dreamt of selling ice cream…. THEN SELL ICE-CREAM.I love all kinds of things people laugh at me for liking. But I am happy, and who cares if they laugh. Don’t let someone squish your dreams, and squish the real you. Let’s stop living life for the approval of others. If they don’t like it, then…..BYE FELICIA. See ya later.
