“Not everyone will understand your journey. That’s fine. It’s not their journey to make sense of. It’s yours. ” -Zero Dean
Seldom, people don’t understand what you desire from life, your ambition, your way of living, your dreams. Not only they don not understand, they also at times make fun of what you are trying to explain. I am the one who would get disheartened and would feel low if such incidents happened for days.
My actions were an outcome of carefully weighed thoughts and what the other person would think of me. I love being around with people and having a great company, but life always has things planned for you that you could never imagine. Certain circumstances early in life taught me how to stay alone, and although it was one of the most painful periods, it was the best learning life could have ever given me. From then on, I value my close pals and myself more than I ever did.
I have come to realise, that each one has a different upbringing, a different lifestyle and most importantly a different thought process altogether. And not everyone understands like your mother does and it is wrong of you to even expect such a thing. At the same time, there are people who understand you as well, and they are your people for life.
Apart from communication, the other pillar on which relationship is built is understanding. A relationship is magical, if things that can not be expressed are also understood the same way when expressed out aloud.
Early in life, it is important not to waste time on people who don’t have time for you and talk to people who can’t hear you. There are people no matter what you do would never like you, and that is perfectly okay because you also have people who love you fiercely.
The more I became myself, the many I pulled away from me. But I also attracted as many.
Only to realise on a hot evening with a cold coffee in my hand that you are not everyone’s cup of tea but a fine glass of perfect red wine!
Totally agree with this. Not everyone is going to understand your journey – and that’s totally okay. The most important person that needs to believe in our dreams and goals is ourselves.

Thank you. It’s good to be reminded at the beginning of a new day that the only person that needs to believe in me, is me.

I’ve been through similar experiences. People tend to judge you based on their own experiences and circumstances. It is best to be around people who are there for you no matter what. And yes, I agree with you, if some of them have gone, the new ones will them for sure. We think alike a lot, Ramya.
There are people who don’t understand you but don’t you think that if no one understands you, it can be a lonely, uphill road?
Such a great reminder. I say you be you and I’ll be me.
People often judge you for every little thing that you do. Sometimes i just shut them off from myself!
This is something that took me a very long time to figure. But it is essential to succeed in life. When you think about it, literally noone exists on this planet who has the approval of every person around him, is it not?

Awesome concluding line with the hot evening, cold coffee , cup of tea and glass of perfect red wine. Each have a magic of their own….so do we as individuals. We don’t need everyone to understand us.

I have spent a good part of my twenties trying excessively to please people. But nowadays, I’ve realized that it’s not just unnecessary, it’s impossible! Thanks for a great post!
