You will never be good enough to please everybody.
You will never be good enough to please everybody, but you will always be good enough for someone who really appreciates you. You can never please everyone, so stop trying.
Do not let adversities to drag you down, but rather let it rage inside you like fire that cannot be stopped. No matter what you do, it will never be enough for other people.
No matter what you do, people will be criticizing you for the choices and/or decisions you will or have made. No one will ever fully accept everything you do and respect that.
Someone will always find a problem, fault or mistake with what you do. It is a true and honest fact of life. People never stop talking. You do good, no one remembers. You do bad, no one forgets.
Go ahead and shed people’s opinions and expectations. Like the saying goes: ” When you struggle, people will laugh at you. You succeed against all odds, they hate you.”
Go do what makes you happy and live for yourself. Along the way, those who criticise you or not happy with you, will have no choice but accept you.
Never stop, keep your head high and one day you will be right. Be whatever you want and not what people want you to be.
You only have one life, so live it as if there is no tomorrow. Live a life of no regrets, competition or living for people. People will try to put you to a place so you can never roam and be free to be yourself.
Free yourself from those chains and bondages. Let the blood, sweat and tears from your struggles propel you and allow you to slip free from the pain and labels.
Let your tears give you more strength to battle your demons, so you can shut out those negative voices and only hear the voice that matters most. That voice should be your own.
Once free from those chains, I hope you walk away stronger and come to the realisation that not being good enough for others, is good enough for you.
You will never be good enough to your friends’, families’, enemies’ and strangers’ expectations of who you should be, so stop trying. You are who you are and that is good enough on its own.
Use the pain that they cause to make yourself happy. Find your inner self and push off everyone’s hateful words that are only meant to tear you apart. Stand tall and proud of every choice you made and choices you will continue to make. Even the bad or unpopular ones.
I may not be good enough for your high standard but I have no regrets. It is my life and I refuse to let anyone make me feel ashamed of the life I live. I may not be good enough to please but in turn, I will keep loving you for who you are because no one should ever be made to feel as if they are lesser or not good enough.
Tell yourself this:
I am never going to be good enough for the people around me, and honestly, that is fine because it is me living my life.
No matter how much my choice or decision hurts now, but I know someday I will look back and realise my struggles changed my life for the better.
Yes, I will never be good enough to please everyone but find solace in the fact that I am able to please some. I love everybody and even those who do appreciate me. I have no regrets because I can proudly say: “At least I tried.”
