Don't Let Others Stop You From Living The Life You Love

How people treat you isn't your fault. Stop caring about what others think of you. It's a reflection on them, not you.

I have always wondered why some people go through life so unkind. There are so many people I can't help but wonder what a taste of their own medicine would feel like. But, I have realized that being treated poorly is not a reflection on you, but rather a reflection on them.

Never doubt who you are because someone tells you who they think you are. Never fall into and be the person you are made out to be.

No one knows you better than you know yourself. So carry yourself with pride and confidence. Never let the mean in people bring out a mean in you. Sometimes that is easier said than done.

It's not always easy choosing to take the high road. It is, however, so much more rewarding. It's not always easy choosing to be kind when life is mean. It is, however, better to be silent than become someone you are not.

There are always going to be people in life that don't see you for who you are. Not everyone in life is going to like you. You truly can't please everyone and that is okay.

You don't have to change the person you are to make the people who don't like you, like you.

We all have different images of each other. People idolize, others hate. We all see people in a different light. People who I think are funny, aren't funny to everyone else. Stay true to yourself and the right people will stay true to you. People will always treat you bad based on an image they have of you.

There's always going to be people that think they truly know you but don't. How people perceive you have to do with who they are. Stop listening to perceptions about yourself and start living who you are. Be happy. Rise above negative treatment and unkind people. Be around people who see the person you are and empower that greatness within you. Be kind. My parents always told me to "kill them with kindness." Easier said than done, but something to be reminded of every day!
