I don't mind if some people don't like me. It's kind of flattering...
When I say that I accept people just the way they are, it doesn’t mean I agree with their opinions, behaviours and attitudes, how they treat themselves, how they treat others, and how they see the world. It doesn’t mean I am going to let them walk all over me. No…
If someone doesn’t like me – IT’S ONLY - because I make them feel uncomfortable.
I am a trigger. I am a reminder. The one, responsible for triggering struggles deep seated in them.
We all have struggles, and we have to accept that others have them as well.
And these people not liking me – it’s only because they are given an opportunity to face their own demons, issues, fears, guilt, shame, limitations and doubts.
So, should I hate these people, knowing that they are suffering because of me?
I accept people the way they are even if they do things that I don’t agree, don’t like or don’t understand because I know that it comes from their own inner struggles.
I don’t believe in coincidence. If there is a need for us to meet – even if it is for a minute or two – we will meet. If I am meant to show up in your life, I will show up – whether you like it or not. And vice versa.
You see, we need each other – because we learn from each other. We are all students and all teachers in this life.
And the people who make me feel uncomfortable, well, they are my greatest helpers... To me it’s like free therapy. And who doesn’t need therapy nowadays???
So remember that you can’t expect your struggles, the inner pain, to disappear just like that … by magic - you must look within yourself and start doing the work.
And that is how your start your journey towards "how to become the best version of yourself".
