I often had the urge to fit in and kind of never really knew who I really am or who I want to be. I always wanted to get along with everyone to avoid problems and conflict. However, recently, through the latest 2 months I’ve spent out of my usual environment, I feel like a lot of things changed my opinion on that and I start feeling better.
I realized that I don’t need to justify myself when others act inappropriate, prejudiced and childish. I have reasons for the way I’m living my life and if you don’t respect them or even mock at them, don’t expect me to treat you with respect either.
I recently read this quote and I think it’s very accurate: ‘you have to impress no one but yourself’. the important thing is to stay true to yourself even if others don’t share your opinion and values. don’t adapt if you don’t feel that you’re doing the right thing. don’t let people harm you when they try to push you down. leave. surround yourself with people who love you and are understanding, because these are the people who make you happy. and I’m so happy to have people like this in my side. ♡
long post but I had to get it off my chest.
it’s so nice being alive at the same time as you
