They are. No matter what you do. Because that’s just how they are wired. I used to spend so much of my time trying to make everyone like me. I hated it when people didn’t like me, even people who i didn’t know, people of no consequence in my life (like a friend of a friend or even someone interviewing me for a job). But I’ve come to realise, especially the past six months or so, that you can’t make people like you and it’s a waste of your energy in trying to. They are going to believe what they want to believe. Yeah it’s probably wrong, yeah you can probably prove it’s wrong, but the fact that they chose to believe it- even for a short time in some cases- is enough to say fuck you, you don’t know me at all if you think that. If you read my blogs you may have seen mention of my former best friend and she’s the one I’m putting in this catagory. Sure I could prove to her that every single thing she believed from a bunch of strangers was bullshit, that some of them didn’t even know me, but why should I bother? I’m not wasting energy caring anymore. I’ll make time for the people in my life who actually *want* to be in it, who know me well enough to know what I would or wouldn’t do. So the “haters” (I despise that term BTW because I don’t think having an opinion differing from someone or disliking someone in the public eye makes one a hater, it simply means one is exercising their right to have an opinion right or wrong) can keep on hating. They get no more air time, they keep me awake at night no longer, they simply do not matter anymore. And fuck does this feel incredibly freeing. You all should try it if you need! You’d be surprised how much better you feel not caring any longer. 🙂

FG.
