Be yourself; the right people will love the real you. (Sean Dietrich, writer)
Sometimes we seem to be so concerned about what people think of us that we actually change our behavior in order to impress them. Too often, we discover that our attempts have not really brought about the desired response. Trying to impress others isn’t really a worthy effort. If you’re living an honest life, those who are important to you will respond lovingly.
Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. (Galatians 6:4)
