It’s really not about you

Posted on October 17, 2012


One of the most liberating things you can learn in this human life is that how other people feel about you is really not about you at all.

When someone doesn’t like you or when someone likes you, it’s about them, not you. We all decide who we like and don’t like based on our personal stories. And our personal stories are formed from a number of things, including our individual perspectives and life experiences. 

It’s not your job to try to change someone else’s story about you (that doesn’t ever work). Stop trying to get people to like you. Be yourself and like you. That’s the most important thing.
