Impressing someone usually ending up with me feeling not good because i have to fake something or make something up to get someone else’s appreciation. One day i decided to stop it because it felt so irrelevant to me everytime i met other people and tried to impress them. It sort of felt like lying to my ow heart.
Now i have been learning to express myself with self-control, i speak less but real, i act as who i am and i do feel so much less insecure. Now i’ve started feeling good about myself, and i have started see how people are from different point of view, and they actually are even nicer and better as a person because i have less prejudice that they would underestimate me if i do ‘this and that’ or if i say ‘this and that’ and turned out they are fine with those things. Everything feels real. My heart is in peace. It impacts alot to my days, things are fall into place, so-much better place and relevant.
And somehow i found out impressing someone might end up as being not real, while expressing ourselves + self control can end up impressing.
