Force The World To Deal With You

You have to decide who you are and force the world to deal with you, not with its idea of you.

James Baldwin

Everyone has a perception of who you are or who they want you to be,

Your friends,partners,parents,employer/ees.

They may tell you that you can’t do something, that you shouldn’t do something, that you’re not right for this or that

Because their version of you, you can’t.

And battling with other peoples perceptions can be draining.

But just because they don’t agree with what you are or want to do because it doesn’t fit their idea of you

Doesn’t mean you should not do it,

After all their perception of you is their problem.

Who you are

Be it.

They can deal with it or not, either way not your problem.
