How much time do you waste everyday concerned what others think of you? Do you make decisions, lose sleep, or give in to pressure out of a desire to be liked?
The reality is not everyone will like you nor even respect you. The person you need to be concerned with – and whether they respect you – is the one you look at in the mirror each day.
This is not an excuse to become an a-hole. Instead, think of your time like you do your money and invest it wisely. Don’t waste it on inconsequential people or drama. Love yourself, your family and your true friends. All of them will love you for who you are – faults and all.
