It is so hard when I have lived seeking the approval of others and getting hurt. Too people – pleasing …
Need to focus on the people who really matter
- Mom & Dad, husband and true friends - too much energy spent on people who really don’t care about me.
Which is a double edged sword. People love how ‘nice’ and thoughtful I am however, I so easily get my feelings hurt and take things personally. Wish I was stronger and didn’t care so much about what others think. I remember what my Mom said when I was younger when I had ‘tons of friends’
- ‘if you can have a few good true friends in your life you will be blessed’. I thought she was crazy cuz’ I had lots of friends … now I know -- after being hurt … hard lesson to learn.
