Not Your Cup of Tea

One of the things that I have always struggled with is the idea that I will never be everyone’s cup of tea.

No matter how hard I try, there will always be people out there who will never like me. 

When I first started teaching, I encountered two of these people. I tried my very best to be friendly, kind, and sweet but it never made a difference. It really tore me up that I couldn’t change their minds about me.

It has been such a hard lesson to accept the fact that no matter what I do and no matter what I say, there will always be certain people who do not care for my specific flavor.

It’s also been challenging to not let these people keep me from being my true self despite them. There are days when I suddenly realize that I’m playing it small. I think my outer shell has become very reserved to protect my inner self from the harshness of these types of people. Unfortunately, I struggle to let people in because of this.

One of my goals for this new year is to be true to my inner self, let go of the need to please the unpleasable people in my life, and to make more of an effort to let people in.
