People Will Not Like You
I just wanted to give a quick message to you guys today and just have a serious talk with you guys that I think some of you really need to hear. You know I see a lot of people out there not loving who they are and feeling like they are cursed with who they are because of the things that they went through, but I just want you to imagine for a minute that everything that you have gone through, good or bad, was for a higher purpose. Just play the hypothetical game with me for a minute. If everything in your life was all playing into something greater in your life. Imagine all of the losses that you have experienced in your life were all saving up little by little for one big gain in your life to come eventually. Just think about if that happened for you in your life, how powerful you would be because you actually went through it. You actually went through the struggle, you went through the hurt. Some of you guys out there have stories that are way more powerful than my story. Some of you can touch way more lives than I can touch, but we just have not owned it. We have not taken ownership of our own lives and we have not learned to love ourself.
We need to learn to accept ourselves for who we are and understand that not everyone is going to like us, not everyone is going to agree with us, but who cares? This is the world as it is. There are people out there that are not going to like you. Like if you are trying to base your own self worth off of the fact that everyone has to like you then you will never see how valuable you truly are. There is not a single person in this world right now, there is not a single person in history that did not have their fair share of people not liking them. Everybody has haters. Just because there are people that do not like you does not mean that you are doing something wrong. There will always be people who will try to bring you down, but that does not have to get in the way of you seeing your own self worth.
Here is the biggest and most important point: Your self worth is not up for debate. Your value is solid and it was determined the moment you were created. You are valuable because you were created valuable and that is honestly the end of the story. The people in your life do not get to challenge that. The followers you have on instagram or the friends you have on facebook do not get to challenge that. Your haters certainly don’t get to challenge that. Stop listening to the haters and start to love yourself.
It all starts with you.
