Here’s why you should no longer care about fitting in
Stop worrying about fitting into insignificant society standards.
Let people talk. They clearly have nothing else to do. But you do, so stop obsessing over approval-seeking. You are an intelligent and admirable person, and you don’t need to be accepted by the community to feel good about yourself.
Each and every one of us has their own insecurities and fears. More or less, we stress over how other people perceive us. Somehow, many people let this affect their self-esteem. What’s worse, they get so addicted to being adored by others, that when someone disapproves of them, they almost lose their minds.
Don’t be that person. Don’t change your extraordinary personality just to be accepted by someone who doesn’t even care about you. And please, don’t become one of the many.
What makes you unique is your wild passion for life, your desire to explore the whole world, and your amazing kindhearted nature.
If you waste all of your valuable time and energy trying to please others and fit into their standards, chances are, you’re gonna lose yourself.
Trust me, it’s not worth it.
Unfortunately, nowadays, we’re somehow forced to try harder to be accepted by others. Social media has a tremendous impact on this. We’re convinced we need to collect hundreds of likes and positive reactions from our “friends”. We spend hours choosing the perfect picture or caption, and we believe this way people will adore us. Our lives are now evaluated not by significant achievements, but by the number of followers and likes we have. Is this what you truly want from your life?
Be careful not to lose yourself while you’re trying to please others. Look around you. Even if everyone likes and accepts you, unless you’re not at peace with yourself, none of this will matter. So take a step back and think about what’s truly valuable for you. Think about all the opportunities you missed while you were too busy paying attention to what people might say.
Is social acceptance more important than your goals, your dreams, and your wellbeing?
Stop worrying about what would others say, and start caring more about yourself. If you want to grow, you need to be determined and never let anything stop you from chasing your goals. If you want to be happy, you need to learn how to enjoy your own company. And if you want to be successful, you need to start believing in your own potential.
Your happiness, your prosperity, your accomplishments, and your peace of mind are all up to you. People’s opinions have nothing to do with that. You are the one in charge of your life. Let that sink in.
Hopefully, there will be a life-changing moment in your journey, when you will realize how insignificant it is to waste your energy into fitting in.
This will give you the power to overcome any challenge life brings you. You will see that the only person you need to impress is you. You will learn that other people’s opinions about you do not define your worth. And you will start attracting people who will truly appreciate you for who you are, not for who they want you to be.
Most importantly, you will finally feel free to be yourself. You will be able to embrace your unique, raw, wild, pure personality. You will finally feel comfortable in your own skin. Moreover, you will be satisfied with who you are. This will make you believe in yourself and will give you the motivation you need to achieve everything you have ever wanted.
And if this isn’t enough to convince you to stop worrying about others’ approval, know this: The ones who truly care about you will never want you to change. People who genuinely love you will accept you with all of your flaws and imperfections. So stop giving a damn about people’s approval, and start working for your own goddamn progress.
