If you are in the habit of pleasing everyone that you socialize with, you may just be suppressing your authentic self. What other way would you want to live than being yourself?
The game of life is not to please everybody. You can TRY, but even the same people who once condone what you have done may dislike what you do at another time. As this quote says it so eloquently, “Trying To Please everyone is a recipe for stress, misery and frustration. Be yourself it’ll be good to know who’s down with that.” No matter how careful you are with the things you do, there will be someone to judge or misunderstand you. In fact, there is nothing wrong with that. Say for instance; you are someone who is very careful with your money it is almost certain that someone will say that you are a miser. Will you stop being careful with your money?
In all honesty we have to admit to ourselves that we too have at some point in our lives found ourselves condemning somebody else for what we would condone in ourselves. Remember, even in doing nothing people will find fault with what you haven’t done. As I have mentioned before, those who like what you have done, then dislike something else you do, shows that you will not be able to please all the people all the time. In fact, I don’t know if anyone has. With this in mind, you should know that no matter what path you choose to pursue there will be someone who will think that you should be doing something else. Furthermore, while you are on your path or the choice you have made you should still exercise humility and at the same time stay sincere to your conviction.
Remember, if you constantly try please all the people all the time, you will prevent yourself from becoming who you really are. You must feel free to express who you really are. You are going to be criticized no matter what. If that’s the case, I would say be criticized for being your authentic self.
You want to bless even those who don’t like what you do.
