Who Are You Trying To Impress
Who are you trying to impress?
Why are you trying so hard?
Who are you trying to please?
These are questions that I used to find asking myself repeatedly. It was a constant battle between my actions and my thoughts as well as what I knew would serve me best and what I was actually doing. It felt like I was living polar opposite lives at points – I knew what I WANTED to do, what would serve my mind and my body, but I was on such a mission to please EVERYONE that I went against that completely.
The truth is this: Not everyone will ‘like’ you. Not everyone vibes with you or bounces off your energy and you won’t always love everyone you meet – We are all different and that’s what makes this world so interesting. One of the hardest lessons I had to learn was that not everyone will like you and you can’t make them like you no matter how much you try.
As we are all different and unique in our own way, that means that every single relationship we have with people will be different. No one relationship is the same. We all bring a certain amount and type of energy to the table and when that energy combines with another person’s, it mixes into something totally original – chemistry. That chemistry doesn’t always create fantastic everlasting relationships and sometimes there might even be non-starters, but that’s all part of this energy combining experiment.
I wanted to share with you why it's so important to let go of being a 'people pleaser' and how it's essential to live life authentically and true to yourself. After all - who are you trying to impress?
