Stop trying to impress other people

Stop trying to impress other people

I’ve been thinking of this recently. When we focus on impressing others and trying to make them like us or think well of us, it distracts us from being able to fully focus on loving them well.

Let’s just be our authentic selves, set aside our desire for performing and people-pleasing, and instead pour ourselves into wholeheartedly loving others as best as we know how.

    I’ve come to realize my desire to please people is about me feeling good about myself – not about loving them. Great reminder! Thanks for sharing.

  • Kim says:

    Thank you for this reminder. I always feel like I want to make a good impression, but I want them to just like me for me. Loving others is so important when this society tells you to love yourself.

    I feel that this is how I live my life. I just wrote a post about a week ago about it. I dress for my and my life and my kids. What others think of me doesn’t really matter to me. The people that matter don’t care what my clothes look like. It’s so much more fun to be myself than it is to try to be who I think other people want me to be.

    Thanks for the reminder! It’s so hard to sometimes stop the habit that’s become so ingrained in us, we need to make a conscious effort to do so.
