Hi Ladies, this is my first time on the midlife thread... gulp, are the forties considered "midlife"? I don't know if 39 and holding counts
Anyhow, I just saw this latest post on the right hand column and just had to click on it.
I used to try really hard to "impress" people as if I needed others to tell me of my own worth. As I've aged, I've learned to focus on "expressing" my true self to others. As a result, I am in touch with my true passions, my purpose, and life is an amazing journey of discovery.
The bonus side effect is that people who like me actually like me for the REAL ME! Isn't that what we all want anyway? We want people to like us for who we really are. I guess as I get older, I don't want to waste time with people who don't like me anyway. My time is too precious and, well, so am I! Oh, that's the other thing. I've learned to like "me".
Can anyone else relate?
