One day it just clicks. You realize what’s important and what isn’t. You learn to care less about what other people think of you and more about what you think of yourself. You realize how far you’ve come and you remember when you thought things were such a mess that they’d never recover. And then you smile. You smile because you are truly proud of yourself and the person you’ve fought to become.

Don’t change to win someone’s heart. Stay true and you’ll find someone who likes you for being you.

No matter what people think of you, always keep singing your own song.

You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you—it’s something inherent.

Everybody does not have to like you. That is not their job. Liking you is not anyone’s purpose in life except yours.

You can’t always please everybody, but you can do what makes you happy and just hope that those around you will be happy for you.

There’s a difference between caring about what others think and worrying about it. When you care about what other people think, you respect and value their opinions. When you worry about, you depend on their validation for your worth. So keep caring. Keep treating people like they matter. Just know that you matter too, whether they confirm it or not.

Don’t worry if someone does not like you. Most people are struggling to like themselves.

If you really want to live your life to the fullest and realize your greatest potential, you must be willing to run the risk of making some people mad. People may not like what you do, people may not like how you do it, but these people are not living your life. You are!

Five things you can’t control: What other people think of you. What other people do. What happens around you. The outcome of your efforts. The passage of time. So let go and focus on what you can control—what you do today.

You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.

Never chase love, affection, or attention. If it isn’t given freely by another person, it isn’t worth having.

Life is too short to worry about what others say or think about you. So just enjoy life, have fun, and give them something to talk about.

Everything will line up perfectly when knowing and living the truth becomes more important than looking good.

You will never gain anyone’s approval by begging for it. When you stand confident in your own worth, respect follows.

Happiness means loving yourself and being less concerned with the approval of others.

Stop worrying about pleasing others so much. Do more of what makes you happy.

When you do not seek or need approval, you are at your most powerful.

One of the most freeing things we learn in life is that we don’t have to like everyone, everyone doesn’t have to like us, and it’s perfectly OK.

Happiness is when you feel good about yourself without the need for anyone else’s approval.
