Maya Angelou

You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody ~ Maya Angelou

This phrase is something that I have to remember from time to time. I have spent far too much of my life, both in childhood and adulthood, trying to please everyone in my life. I have been brokenhearted by the fact that no matter how hard you try, you just cannot please everyone. So, I have to reassure myself that it is okay if people aren’t happy with everything I do or say. Many people cannot be pleased no matter how hard you try and when you continue to try over and over again, all you do is beat your head against a brick wall. I don’t know about you, but that kind of masochistic behavior is not what I am into. So don’t beat yourself up if you can’t make people happy. It’s not your job to make them happy. It is their job to make THEMSELVES happy! Just keep doing what you are supposed to and everyone else can go hang. Make yourself happy!
