The world is filled with people who, no matter what you do, no matter what you try, will simply not like you. But the world is also filled with those who will love you fiercely. The ones who love you: they are YOUR PEOPLE.
Don’t waste your finite time and heart trying to convince the people who aren’t your people that you have value. They will miss it completely. They won’t buy what you are selling. Don’t try to convince them to walk your path with you because you will only waste your time and your emotional good health. You are not for them and they are not for you. You are not their cup of tea and they are not yours.
Politely wave them along and you move away as well. Seek to share your path with those who recognize and appreciate your gifts, who you are.
Be who you are. You are not everyone’s cup of tea and that is OK.
Do not chase another human being. Instead, chase your curiosity. Chase your development and your goals. Chase your passion. Strive to work for something bigger than yourself. And instead of trying to convince someone that you fit within their world – build your own world.
The world is filled with people who, no matter what you do, will point blank not like you. But it is also filled with those who will love you fiercely. They are your people. You are not for everyone and that’s OK. Talk to the people who can hear you.
Don’t waste your precious time and gifts trying to convince them of your value, they won’t ever want what you’re selling. Don’t convince them to walk alongside you. You’ll be wasting both your time and theirs and will likely inflict unnecessary wounds, which will take precious time to heal. You are not for them and they are not for you; politely wave them on, and continue along your way. Sharing your path with someone is a sacred gift; don’t cheapen this gift by rolling yours in the wrong direction.
Keep facing your true north. YOU ARE NOT FOR EVERYONE.
We are all searching for connection, and yet we are all avoiding eye contact. We are all searching for people who understand, but we close ourselves off before we discover that they can relate to the struggles we try so hard to hide. We convince the outside world that we are fine, even if we are aching for help, and that is why we don’t get it. That is why the distance between us and everyone around us widens. We are all running away from each other, when we should be running towards one another.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I have shared this video couple times. I may share this one hundred more times in coming years. Key & Peele is one of my best stress busters.)
No one else can possibly know what kinda power you’ve got going on inside you. What kinda potential, life-force, and creative ability you contain. Only you know the beginning and end of that. And even if you tell anyone about your dreams, and they nod their head, like, “Yes, yes, maybe that’s meant to be”, they should never need to be convinced that you will reach those dreams. Because your dreams are not theirs. Let go of their opinion. Let go of their judgement. Let go of their support, even if it is coming from the most loving place. Let it go. Because it’s not for them to know, this thing that you are dreaming.
You know where you’re going. You know what you are capable of. There is no need to prove this or explain this or articulate this to anyone else. It is entirely up to you. And you need all the space within you to be free for new realities. Make sure you’ve cleared that space. Make sure nothing else is influencing that space. Make sure that this dream is all and only you. BUILD YOURSELF LIKE YOU DREAM.
I love that LOVE we shared.
Yes i am happily single. My heart is open & no occupancy I swear. Now a days I found love in expanding myself further, weirdly self-invested. Loving each day of my life & leaving no pages unturned where I can find money or happiness.
Someday I will fire wrath & bring it all alive the love/life that I wished, I don’t give a fuck who’s ready or who’s waiting for me. Let karma roll; I am always True to myself, all happiness will be mine or else I will buy it if something goes up-down again. Taking my sweet time to convince myself that “no-one around is as bad as I am, someone someday will match my enthusiasm truly”.
Not looking for my next one, allowing time for the last one to check in. In a mood to turn each day a day of winning something, in a mood to turn motivation into moments, in a mood to ramp up all dreams into desire & smash all one by one, in a bad mood to live life of a 13 me again, in a mood to become the baddest asshole I was, in a mood to bark & spark love someday, in a mood to become a stronger person before even thinking about happily ever after together, in a mood to grow bigger together. Some blessings are following & who is giving up!! Even if time is fluid, I will ride it soon or sooner. Not running away this time, reaping everything what’s mine..
