I've spent a large part of my existence caring about what others think of me. Trying to appear happy when I wasn't just so others felt comfortable. Trying to fit in, when my square box didn't fit into their round peg. Being a people-pleaser became a job description for my life and I always tried my best to impress - even to an unhealthy emotional fault. I've worried for no reason, over thought things that needed no attention and done all I could to salvage the relationships and things that were already lost. In the end, know you've done your part in that chapter, Know you did your best. People will think what they want and do as they please - no matter what you feel is right. It's not your job to change someone else. It's up to us to decide to take the higher road and make the healthier choice for our own happiness. It is not done for their sake, but for ours. Always do your best in all facets of your life and when something no longer serves you....breathe and let it go...with confidence and with grace... Have a thicker skin but remember to keep a tender heart.
**be blessed, be joyful & find inner peace**
