To the woman (or man) trying to make everyone else happy:
This is not your job. It’s not your job to make everyone happy. It’s not your job to live a life that everyone will connect with, understand, or get. It’s not your job to worry so much about how everyone else feels that you forget about how you feel.
In every relationship, there must be some give and take. You should give but also take. Have you taken anything lately? You should consider your happiness, too. You should do what feels right for you, too. Say “no” if saying “no” is what you need to do.
It’s not your job to make everyone happy. You can’t make everyone happy. You can’t be everything for everyone all the time. Or even half the time. So don’t try. Just be yourself. Speak your mind because what you have on your mind is worthwhile. Be yourself because everyone else is taken and because no one can be you better.
Make yourself happy. This is your job.
