Two of the greatest battles you need to win in life are overcoming the need to be liked by everyone and not taking negative comments or feedback to heart.
Especially for people with Sanguine and Melancholic temperaments, this will be an uphill battle indeed. Sanguines move on easily but Melancholics have the tendency of dwelling too long on the effect of knowing that someone doesn’t like them or someone said something negative about them.
Your goal in life is to learn to be your very best in anything you do, treat people like you would want to be treated, and care less about who likes you and who doesn’t. When you are extremely good at what you do, even your enemies can not deny that.
It is your gift that will make room for you and your God that will bless the work of your hands. Pay attention to these 2; Your Gift and Your God and the rest will follow.
People will always look out for themselves first, don’t take it personally. Be good, be kind, be generous but don’t be too vulnerable. Stand your ground when you know you are right. Be assertive and say no when you feel you are being taken advantage of. Be firm and consistent in taking care of yourself and your mental health.
People will come and go but those that are meant to be in your life will stay and not make you feel less valuable than you truly are. It’s amazing to be loved, accepted, and appreciated but when you find out that not everyone loves you and some people do not wish you well; do not be alarmed or disturbed, just keep moving.
Staying too long in people’s negativity only prevents you from finding your tribe. Your people, your tribe, and your crew always make you feel at home! Sometimes, your tribe starts with you; loving yourself enough so you don’t suffer the constant need for external validation and love.
