Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind
Dr. Seuss/Bernard M. Baruch
I have tried to live my life by this for years; for me it’s simple but really makes me think.
I always want to try to be who I am and say what I feel; being me and being honest is so important to me, and every day I’m making an effort to always be myself and always be honest.
I’m a massive fucked up heap of depression, anxiety and illness, but I am who I am and I should embrace myself. Love myself. Be proud of myself.
The last part is so true – those who mind don’t matter – anybody who gives you a hard time for the wrong non-caring reasons are just a waste of space and you don’t need them, they mean nothing to you. Life is hard enough without having negativity in it. Be positive, reassess your circle, drink from that half full glass and eliminate negativity.
And those who matter don’t mind – family, friends, and any gorgeous people in your circle who love you for being you, will love you no matter what.
When Big D is being a great big shit I try to remember this; because my head tells me no one cares, everyone minds.
Your true friends and family will love you no matter what, and will be there through thick and thin.
No matter how bad things get, never forget that you are amazing.
You are beautiful.
You are loved.
You, are YOU.
