ON NOT LIVING FOR EXTERNAL VALIDATION

AS CLICHE AND REDUNDANT AS THIS IS... YOU REALLY CAN’T LIVE FOR OTHER PEOPLE’S VALIDATION.

SOMETIMES YOU'RE JUST GONNA BE TOO MUCH FOR PEOPLE. TOO DIFFERENT FROM WHAT THEY'RE ACCUSTOMED TO. TOO OPPOSITE OF HOW THEY WANT YOU TO BE.

EVERYONE HAS THIS IDEA OF HOW YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO ACT AND THINK. SO WHEN YOU DEVIATE FROM THAT, THEY’LL CREATE A NARRATIVE THAT SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH YOU.

IT’S A JUSTIFICATION TACTIC...SO THEY DON’T FEEL SILLY FOR NOT HAVING A REAL REASON TO DISLIKE YOU.

UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR CONFIDENCE AND SURENESS RUBS PEOPLE THE WRONG WAY. AND IT’S TOO MUCH FOR PEOPLE TO DIGEST.

DEEP DOWN PEOPLE WILL LOVE YOUR CHARACTER BUT HATE THE FACT THAT YOU'RE SO COMFORTABLY AND UNAPOLOGETICALLY YOURSELF. NONE OF THAT IS REALLY YOUR PROBLEM THOUGH.
