Just because you want to impress other people or be in the spotlight doesn’t mean that their opinions matter. While they might be something you’re concerned with at the end of the day, they are nothing. 

Life is not about how other people view you or what you think other people are thinking. Life is all about you and how you make it positive for yourself. If you’re living life for other people chances are you’re not as happy as you want to be or as happy as you could be.

In this world, you need to focus more on where you want to be and how you’re going to progress as a person than whether or not someone you don’t even talk to likes you. It might take you a little time to give up your fixation on being what other people want you to be but once you do, you will feel a million times better than you did before. You shouldn’t be so willing to try and please others when you’re not pleasing yourself. 

You don’t have to be right all the time and you don’t have to like the things other people like just to fit in. Standing out is perfectly fine and it doesn’t mean there is something wrong with you. No one is perfect, we all make mistakes and you need to remember that moving forward. 

Just because someone else seems to have it so much better than you doesn’t mean they actually do. Everyone on this planet is going through their own struggles. As long as you’re moving through life living in a way that makes you happy, you’re doing something right. 

Stop trying so hard to make up for the past and stop pushing yourself past your own limits just so people will like you. If they don’t like you as you are, they don’t deserve to hold space for you in this world. You are amazing as you are and the sooner you realize that the better.

Don’t let the people in your life who are constantly working to take advantage of you hold power over your choices. This life is yours to live and you need to be the one living it. If you’re obsessing over getting the things done that other people want you to do, you’re losing sight of the things that actually matter.

You are only human and you will make mistakes but those mistakes are yours to make. You can and will learn from them on your own. You don’t have to try and fit yourself into the mold that the people around you have placed before you. 

You will be good enough as you are for the people who deserve to be by your side and fuck everyone else – as well as their negative opinions of you. As long as you love yourself and the person you’re becoming that’s all that should matter. The time we spend here on this planet isn’t as long as we tend to make it out to be and it could be over in the blink of an eye. Don’t be the person who regrets not having lived life to the fullest on his or her deathbed. 

As a human being here experiencing this world and all the things it has to offer you need to be willing to do what you need to do to ensure your own happiness is secure. Chase your dreams, find love, be wild and free. You deserve to enjoy each moment you have left here and if you’re not enjoying anything you need to make some serious changes. 

You don’t have to be accepted by everyone to be true to yourself and feel amazing all the while. You just need a few people who are willing to share in your battles and the will power to put your best foot forward in a way that YOU see fit. Sure, you will still have bad days and sometimes you’ll want to give up on your dreams but if you really want to accomplish them, you won’t give up.

Don’t face the world through someone else’s eyes. Face the world in your own way and make each day something to remember. If you’re not indulging in things that bring a smile to your face, you’re not living the life you deserve to be living.
