“Be who you are and say what you feel because people who mind don’t matter and people who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss
So I was sitting here thinking about what I can do to become a better mother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend, coworker, etc and the quote above came to mind. I remember reading it many times before and not thinking much about it, but today for whatever reason I couldn't shake it.
All I can do is be the best me possible, who knows me will get that. Those that don't, well they probably don't significantly impact my life anyway. Not necessarily a new idea, but one I struggle with often, because I do fall in and out of the desire to be understood. I do desire to improve my relationships with people. I do care what others think. Just being real. However, ultimately I need to work on being a better me. That person will attract what's needed to stay positive. So, in turn I just need to start cleaning house in more ways than one.
