We human beings are wired with a deep desire to belong. Likewise, we’re instinctively driven to avoid acting in ways that put us at risk of being criticised, left out, or pushed out of the pack. It’s just how we’re made. While there is nothing inherently wrong about wanting to be liked, too often we let our fear of what other people may think keep us from expressing ourselves fully. That fear keeps us from embracing what makes us different and from forging our own path, even if it veers away from the one others expect us to walk.
We live in a world that pressures us to conform – to a certain way of looking, leading and living. Which is why it takes courage to make ourselves vulnerable to criticism or outright rejection. The irony is that the less you strive to have people like and respect you, the more they do.
Likewise, as you live your life more authentically, you attract more authentic people and build more authentic relationships. Not only that, you embolden others to lay down their masks, embrace their uniqueness and live more truthfully also. What a gift!
When you embrace your differences, that’s when you start to shine. .
