Are you somebody who judges others?

Do you look at somebody from a distance and try to figure out who they are as a person?

This may not be with bad intentions but maybe for “self-protection.”

This sounds a bit corny but you need to remind yourself of this because nobody will tell you otherwise. No matter how accomplished you become, people will still hate on you, they’ll still disagree with some ideas that you have, and they’ll still find a way to try and bring down your confidence.

Imagine, all of this because you have a hard time being yourself. Don’t be afraid to show off your personality, it’s not worth it to give other people the fake version of yourself.

What’s the worst that can happen?

Really, have you ever thought about this?

As a human you’re scared of not being accepted, something we can all relate to but have a hard time embracing. Let’s say that you have a very humored…
