Life lesson from the Doctor (Seuss)

You can find good advice in the weirdest places. For instance I found the best advice for my current situation on Pinterest. The advice was in the form of a quote by none other than Doctor Seuss. The quote stated, “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

This quote is by no means saying to disrespect people with words- I see it could be taken that way. In my case I took it to mean that not everyone will love me. And that is A-Okay! I can still be the happy person I am in spite of how certain people may feel about me. But what I took most to heart is that the people who love me in spite of my imperfections- because we all have flaws- are the people worth your attention, time and efforts.

It is possible that one could do the best at everything and people would still have bad feelings for whatever their reasons. That said person would work themselves silly to please everyone and would in turn feel sad when said people did not value them or their extreme efforts.

In my case I have people (my support system) building up my character enough to know that even though I am awkward and imperfect I am good enough.

In closing- my piece of advice is to surround yourself with more joy and positive vibes than that which brings you down and you will find that you end up not caring what the nae-sayers think of you!
