NOT EVERYONE WILL LIKE YOU…
A pretty depressing title…. I know.
Hello Everyone! 🙂
Sometimes we need to be truthful to OURSELVES FIRST before we can be truthful with others. Now, it is a well known fact that not everyone will like you- TRUTH. You are not diamonds, gold, good food, our a pair of Guiseppe Zanotti shoes. NOT EVERYONE will like you. It’s life.
The most important thing that I’m trying to say here though is that—
THAT IS OK.
You are not out here trying to apply to for the “best likable person” award. No. You are trying to be YOU. It’s hard enough getting YOURSELF to like “YOURSELF”, but honestly that is the only person you should be working towards liking, every single day. The reason that I am writing this blog post, is because, since starting YouTube with my sister (Beauty Corner SA), we have not only gotten the BEST benefits of YouTube, meeting GREAT people, fellow YouTubers, getting job and collaboration opportunities, makeup jobs and such, we have also met the NOT so nice side of YouTube.
There will ALWAYS be those people. People who will click “thumbs down” just BECAUSE. People who will ignore your comments every single time you try to know them love and support, just BECAUSE. People who wont want to associate themselves with you because they see you as a smaller YouTuber or Blogger. I have experienced it first hand, and I have to remind myself that NOT everyone will like you.
I was having a chat with my friend and fellow SA Beauty Blogger Vuyelwa from “Very Me, Very V” (here) the other day, and we spoke about the different divisions in the Blogger Community. Actually thinking of writing a blog post on it, let me know if you would like to see it… 🙂
It just all goes back to, not everyone will like you. In a perfect world, one would prefer that if someone doesn’t like me, it must be for a good reason. Not liking me when you don’t know me is just a concept I cannot get on board with.
Continue to do the things you love. Continue to be you. You are not living to be liked by others. That is not your purpose in life. Your purpose is to:
LOVE WHAT YOU DO, AND DO WHAT YOU LOVE ❤
Whoever does not like you for it, can seriously, go swim with the fishes. 🙂
You are your biggest supporter and remember, so many other people love you, like you and enjoy being around you. THAT is your ray of sunshine. THOSE are the people that should matter to you on ANY GIVEN DAY!
Keep your head up. You are not the only one.
Until the next one,
Live in Light and Love ❤
