APPROVAL

APPROVAL
It does not matter how hard we try In our fight for approval in others sight 25% of people will NEVER be partial to you 25% DON’T like you but might be persuaded to 25% of people DO but may be persuaded to change their view Only 25% will love you unconditionally Although perhaps not continually It does not matter how hard we try We will never get it 100% right

    Very true and something we should all bear in mind

    Wow, I love this! It's so important to stand up for what you think is right... and know that no matter what there will always be enemies that go against you. Being fake just to please others gets you no where. Not to sound cliche, but here it goes... be TRUE to YOU!

    True words! I hope that 25% is the case! Peace & Love Matthew Anish
