Please yourself. Learn to forgive yourself. Continue to build your self confidence and your self-love by looking at how far you’ve come & what you’ve overcome. You’re evolving; you’re becoming a more intuitive person, production person.
Whatever you believe, you don’t have to justify those to anyone else. Anyone else. Some people become so opinionated on their beliefs that they are honestly willing to die for them. Do you have any that are that strong? I’m on a quest for total & absolute truth. I believe when you’re interested in the meaning & fulfillment that life can bring, you’re on the right path. But it’s not your job to try and change anyone’s thoughts, or pull them onto your path. Absolutely not. We can be extremely useful to others by encouraging them to go inside themselves & tap into their soul.
I have learned to stop trying to prove myself to anyone. It’s a hard thing to do, because we all want some kind of validation of sorts. Our worth shines through to others, regardless. I have had many times I tried to prove myself to someone & felt completely ridiculous when it was all over. You’re fighting a battle that doesn’t need to be one by anyone else, but yourself.
I believe maintaining a sense of privacy in your own world is crucial. It’s a place where you don’t have to conform to anyone else’s expectations. We spend most of our lives trying to unlearn what we’ve learned, how weird is that? We can’t pretend to think & feel like another does.
