Why do we strive to be popular? Why do we even care whether others like us?
As long as we can live with our actions, and as long as we know we have done the right thing, we will learn to stand tall and love ourselves more.
If we are true to ourselves and we are our authentic self, we will attract those who will like us for who we are and not what we pretend to be.
Else, if we have to keep up the pretense, wont life be very stressful?
