Let it go.

This post is part of my Monday Musings.  

There was a time, not very long ago when what people thought about me mattered a great deal to me. So much so that I modelled myself on what they believed I was like rather than what I really was like. Strange but so true. 

I was always a confident child and therefore I say strange. I wonder when this need to please everyone crept into me. Maybe the fear of being ‘friendless’ drove me to become this way and now I realise that no matter how much one tries to please the other there is only so much you can bend over backwards for the others. Ultimately it’s always you and your own family you can fall back on. So don’t try too hard and don’t be too hard on yourself either.
