People are going to be quick to point out your flaws. You can’t avoid it(as much as you might want to). Sometimes it is from a place of love so they can help you get better. Other times it is just to make them feel better by trying to bring you down to their level. But the one thing I can assure you is that just as reliable as the change of the seasons, you can be sure it’s coming. Sometimes it is in your best interest to try to work on it, other times you need to follow the advice of the great philosopher Taylor Swift, ‘shake it off’.
Personally, I have been told many times that I am too nice. Sometimes as a compliment, but more often as criticism. I was told that I need to be more of a (choose your expletive) if I want to be successful. I tried that for a period of time but not with much success. I was so overwhelmed with trying to change that I was always angry. I was always looking around angry, waiting for someone to treat me like a pushover. Ultimately, I was so miserable, that I burned myself out and wound up much less successful at the time.
Continue to work on your opportunities, but never at the expense of removing what truly makes you special!
Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you tomorrow 🙂
