“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.”
I came across these words today and I think it might just be the best thing I read all year. And what better way to end 2015 than with this short, yet powerful message to remind us that it’s OK to not be liked.
I realize how negative that sounded on the surface and how it should be common sense to any reasonably-minded person, but reading it randomly in passing somehow made me breathe a huge sigh of relief. It’s OK to not be liked.
I think too often, we don’t spend enough time with ourselves. And too often, we don’t spend enough time with those who love us fiercely. 2016 will be the year where I learn to love myself more and learn who will love me despite all the bumps on the road. /year
