Would I be liked?
I often wonder if I'm liked because I'm giving- of time, understanding, service etc. Although I offered these things to others I never felt like someone really cared/understood me.
When only my sister, parents and a bridesmaid I paid travel expenses for were present at my wedding from all the family and people I loved, I felt used and alone. I realized others really weren't willing to do the sacrifices I made for them. I turned bitter and cold toward people.
For the first time in my life I'm starting to say it's okay to be me and not be a people pleaser. I've come to realize I don't have to keep people out of my life. I don't have to "dislike" people. I was created to have likes/dislikes and opinions. I was surprised to find out most people are okay with it.
