No matter what, just be yourself. Don’t change unless it’s for the better. People are going to criticize you for any and everything. You can’t go around trying to please everyone. Everyone thinks differently and processes things differently. What you may believe isn’t necessarily bad if someone doesn’t agree. You have to live your life and know that since we are all different, that means we have our own way of dealing with things and situations. Just be yourself. People will accept honesty and respect you more if you are staying true to yourself. Being yourself means you know how much you can do on your own. This also means that you get a chance to separate yourself from everyone. You can create your own persona, your own style, your own way of doing anything you want. Don’t get discouraged when people come at you negatively. Find the silver lining or in other words the positivity of it and move forward. Also part of being you means that you puck and choose your battles wisely. This comes with aging and maturity. Just be yourself. Have a blessed day!
