You Are Not Everyone’s Cup of Tea…And That’s OK

I was browsing the interwebs the other day and found this piece of gem. It’s a passage that resonates with what I go through in life every day. As a matter of fact, it applies to each and every one of us because we are “not everyone’s cup of tea“. I love it and I’m sure, you will too.

The world is filled with people who, no matter what you do, no matter what you try, will simply not like you. But the world is also filled with those who will love you fiercely. The ones who love you: they are your people.

Don’t waste your finite time and heart trying to convince people who aren’t your people that you have value. They will miss it completely. They won’t buy what you are selling. Don’t try to convince them to walk your path with you because you will only waste your time and your emotional good health. You are not for them and they are not for you. You are not their cup of tea and they are not yours.

Politely wave them along and you move away as well. Seek to share your path with those who recognize and appreciate your gifts, who you are.

Be who you are.

You are not everyone’s cup of tea and that is OK.

Isn’t it great? I’ve seen this on many sites but there seems to be no idea who the author is.

Whoever the author, I’d like to thank them for such an awesome thought.

Are there any passages or quotes that resonate with you?

My Inking

There are many reasons for getting inked. Some do it to show off their coolness (uncool, if I may say), some to honour loved ones, some others to represent an emotion, and some for fun.

My tattoo story falls in-between representation and fun. It was an idea cooked up by me and a friend. Though I knew what I wanted, it took about a month to decide on the appropriate design. And…

The Pun-dits of Laughter

It’s never the world’s best joke that brings down the house. It’s the silly ones that get the greatest laughs. They are so silly that we try to control our giggles but cannot and finally burst out.
