Do you ever catch yourself trying to gain the approval of others? I consider that to be a bad habit of mine. There’s nothing I need to prove and trying to make people understand where I’m coming from can be such a drag. I feel like I’m surrounded by people who don’t try to get to know me and go out of their way to keep it that way. That probably makes me sound bitter, lol. So what? Maybe I am. I’m still working on that.
However, I do find life is a lot easier for me when I go my own way and remember I belong to myself. Conformity to other people’s agendas is not only boring, but it chips away at your self-respect. I don’t need to belong to a group, a community, or a significant other; I belong to myself. Yes, I do appreciate the people/communities in my life, but they also meet the criteria of some of the best advice I’ve ever come upon: Some people are just too f**ked up to care. Therefore, I have to make myself top priority. No one else will ever do it.
This is the energy I got from a reversed three of cups today and I’m all for it.
