Do you know what bloody exhausts me? Giving an explanation to those who don't want to hear your answer. They wait to respond, not listen, even when they're the ones who ask; they don't want for you to be able to justify yourself, for them to then be wrong or mistaken, they're just cold heartedly trying to catch you out. For whatever bitter reason, they want their presumption to still be true, rather than stand corrected. 

I can't relax knowing someone has an ill opinion of me because something has been misunderstood along the way, I always find myself wanting to clear the air. It's stupid, because you can't please everyone and you shouldn't want to, you won't feel at ease and it won't make or keep you happy. It only says more about the other person, than yourself, if they chose to be ignorant and sour, that's their issue, their character, not yours. 

I've learnt that if someone isn't even going to try and meet me halfway, have some stretch of optimism, or have any genuine interest or care at all, then they're not worth it. They're not worth the bother over, the self-doubt, worry or time. Some people just want to be unnecessarily relevant in your life by placing their own superior judgement onto you, maybe they don't like seeing you do well without them, maybe they're bored, or taking out personal battles onto you. Whatever the reason, they don't deserve your time of the day if they're bringing you down. 

I know I'm happy with who I am, what I'm doing and where I'm going, I hope you are too, so screw anyone else's doubts about your life, the loyal ones will be supportive throughout the journey, not just the end, they'll be critical but respectfully and interested, not simply curious. 


with love, Kat

  1. I love this post Kat - I’m trying to get back to my usual ‘this is me, and if you don’t like it, I don’t care’ place that I used to be at.

    Not everyone is going to like you or want to listen and I think as long as we look after ourselves and take things with a pinch of salt sometimes, we can be okay xxxx

  2. Yes, yes, triple YES. I hate when people don't listen, especially after making false assumptions about me, but much like you, I've learnt that it says a lot more about them than it does about me, and there's no point in wasting my time and energy on people who won't meet me half- or even a quarter of the way xxx
