Be a good person but do not waste your time to try prove that.
Do not waste another moment trying to prove yourself, or try to win the acceptance of someone who will never give it to you.
The truth is that there will always be people in this world who are smarter than us, better looking than us, wealthier than us, more influential than us, better sports people than us and better writers than us. I think you get the point and drift.
Sometimes we try to show the world we are flawless in hopes that we will be liked and accepted by everyone, but we can’t please everyone and we shouldn’t try.
The problem is that I used to compare myself to these people constantly, and predictably, the outcome didn’t play out very well for me, because like most people, I would compare the worst of myself against the best of others.
Life is not a race; you have nothing to prove. Everyone wants to get to the top of the mountain first and shout. The truth is, all your happiness and growth occurs while you are climbing, not while you are sitting at the top.
Enjoy the journey by paying attention to each step. Do not rush through your life and miss it. Forget where everyone else is in relation to you. This isn’t a race. You get there a little at a time, not all at once.
It is true that people may judge you, but after spending few seconds doing it, they are completely over it.
Most people do not give any real energy to the clothes that you are wearing, the person you are dating, the business that you have or are starting, the car you drive, the mansion or house that you live in, the way you are raising your kids, etc.
Surely, it’s a big deal to you, but after they are done making a quick judgment about it, they go back to spending the other chunk of percentage of their days thinking other thoughts.
Your standards for your life are the only standards that matter. Just be authentically you, and more importantly. Be contend with being authentically you. No one really cares anyway.
I wish I could leave this world a better place than I found it. Simply by, amongst othet things, being a good person but do not waste my time to try prove that.
