To my inner child,
There are going to be people out there that love you and there are going to be people out there that can’t stand you. Do not let that define how you view yourself. If how you are matters to someone that’s a good sign that they shouldn’t matter to you because the people who matter don’t mind you being yourself. Those are the people that you want to surround yourself with.
It has taken me over 30 years to realize this and that is something I wish I had clued in on earlier in my life.
Surround yourself with people that love your quirks, your mannerisms, your good and bad sides. Realize that happiness truly does come from within and the approval or disapproval of others is not something that should have weight in loving who you are.
I guess what I’m trying to say is love you and the rest will follow.
