Some of the best advice I ever got was this: “Not everyone likes you, so stop wasting your time on those that don’t.” His unofficial science was this: approximately one-third of everyone likes you, one-third of people do not like you and the last third really don’t have an opinion or care.
When I was younger I worried when I felt that I was not being liked and I bent over backwards to get them to like me. What I did not understand at the time was this: I could not have ever done enough to get them to like me, it wasn’t personal, it just was. I have since learned that our energy attracts certain people to help us at very specific points in our lives. Some enter our lives for very short periods of time and others may be part of a lifetime lesson. But most importantly, to waste energy on those that don’t like us is an exercise in futility. It is not your job to win them over, it is your job to listen to the angels around you that are supporting you and lifting you higher. Also, the more you obsess in their dislike, the more you lose a piece of yourself and your power.
Never compromise yourself for anyone. Take your power back and be yourself. As you live grounded in your authentic self, there will be those that do not like you. Okay and good. That means you are taking a position and living a genuine life instead of a victim role of a people pleaser. Bless them and move on. They are there to show you that their path is not your life path and we can all walk different roads and still live fully, vibrating love for all.
This “law of thirds” was another turning point in my healing of anxiety. Be kind to all, send love to everyone and set your energy boundaries for health. It’s a game changer.
