Please Yourself

Quote of the day:
Do what you feel in your heart to be right. You'll be criticized anyway
-Eleanor Roosevelt

I feel the scrutiny from those closest to me the most.
And i listen.
...Only when and if i have to.
I sit, hands enclosed and thoughts exposed.

People talk.
They say things when you are not there to defend yourself.
Even people you barely know -but somehow know who you are...will always have something to say or talk about.

How do you react to that? How would you deal with it...

What do you do when life gets too complicated -when pleasing everyone is not an option.
When your business -becomes 'everybody's business'....

I can get used to defending myself...but sometimes i just feel like it's not worth the time.
Not worth the effort. We live...and learn.

Don't try to please everyone...don't be a 'people-pleaser'.
Because people's expectations of you will always be different.
