Beautiful You's post: You Can’t Make Everyone Like You

I have started a post on this topic several times. I could never quite figure out how to say what I wanted to say... Then I read Julie's post at Beautiful You.

It's perfect. Exactly what I would have liked to say if I could have said it.
"All you, we and me can do is be our truest and most genuine self.  The people who are then meant to come to us and be with us and like and love us will be. Those who are not will not.

Focus all your love and attention on those people who are your people. Those who easily flow and connect with you and everything you are. Those with whom you can utterly be yourself – all the time.

Let go of those people who are not your people. Those for whatever reason, entirely out of your control, who move towards others. Let them go with love."
Thank you Julie for writing what I wanted to write.

  1. What do you do when you are married to one of those who are not your people, but ending the marriage would substantially upset the life of your children?

  2. I wish I had a good answer for you... I didn't have kids, so I could decide to leave the marriage... It was only about me and him.

    It will drastically affect your kids. Staying with someone who doesn't love you and accept you could be painful for them. Divorcing could also be painful for them. This is something only you can make a decision on.

    I don't know you, and I'll be thinking of you. It sounds like you have a tough road ahead of you. Sending love.
