Another unposted post from 2011, this one I’ve left unchanged– probably I could have filled in the yadda yadda part or explained more the “could be quiet” but I’m not sure what we meant about that, but otherwise I think it’s been good to go lo these 11 years. It is still so true.:
You can’t please everyone.
Flaws, yadda yadda…
Could be quiet, people want to silence
But people who don’t bow to social convention tend to do pretty well for themselves.
Own the awesomeness. Stick up for rights. Don’t be a doormat. Don’t accept mediocrity (unless mediocrity is justified).
Some people won’t be happy. That’s their problem.
