Well, I have been doing the exact opposite of the what society expects me to do. LOL!
I don't give a **** (excuse me LOL) what others think of me, how I look, how I act, what I should wear, what I should do and say, etc. I got sick of all that. I used to be so worried about
what people think of me. I tried hard to please my friends and family. They eventually betrayed me anyway. So why waste more time? Now I know that what matters most is what makes ME happy, not others. Forget about
other people's expectations. I am much more comfortable with myself because I am proud of who I am now, and for the things I've accomplished so far.
I will take people's advice when I need it. However, only I know what is best for myself.
When I realized that, I noticed that a lot my fear and anxiety diminished.
Thank you Kitt for this great topic!!
