Being ‘Liked’

Have you ever been told you’re not liked by someone? Well, the answer to that is “yes”, you have. And the reason as to why is because you’re not perfect, and everyone is different. Obviously other reasons will be included into that person’s opinion of you, but they’re the two main ones.

They’re also the only reasons that should matter.

To me, being liked by people seemed really important. If I was ever told that someone didn’t like me, I would feel harshly offended. Even if the person didn’t know me, or had never even spoken to me, I’d still take it really seriously. There are people in this world that are never even influenced with the thoughts of caring whether they’re liked by others, and if I’m honest, that’s a great way to live.

As I’m getting older, learning who I am, and meeting different people, I’m coming to learn that it does not matter.

Being liked by people does not define you. You define you.

If you think that’s a bit too cheesy, and it kind of is, ask yourself this: are you the exact same as you were 10 years ago? As in, your personality, your appearance, or things that make you, you. How about 5years ago, maybe 2 years ago?

What about yesterday?

No, you are not the same.

What I’m trying to say is, you’re always changing. People judge on your current state, or your past, and they have no right to do that. Your current self is not the person you will be tomorrow, or next week, or next year- and this provides you with choices. The decision of becoming a better person, is completely yours.

So what if some people don’t like you, why should it matter? Even if you only have two, three, four or even five true friends in this world, be grateful, be happy, be you.

I believe being given life is being given opportunities to change, and that sounds really cheesy. Sorry.

So, to conclude, the moral of this post is: being disliked by others does not define you. Sorry if I’ve rambled or gone a bit cheesy, but I promised to post after I’ve had a quick thought, and this was one. Speak soon. x
