Growth

Maybe it's just me, but I doubt it. I feel like I spent so much of my youth trying to get people to like/love me. Trying desperately to fit in, especially during those dreaded teen years. With age, it matters less to me all the time. Don't get me wrong, I still want you to like me, but I'm not willing to be a chameleon to achieve it. Growth - today's prompt.

I have also changed my thinking on people liking me. When I was younger I would give in to peer pressure just so people would like me. Now, either you do or you don't, not much I can do about it because I'm not changing who I am.

I agree, I think we were all trying to do that! I love the thoughts coupled with the artwork. Very nice.

I love this - its brilliant and touches on how I felt at that difficult age too. I spent way too much time on wanting people to like/love me!

Fantastic and beautifully simple!

I'm still trying to get to that place where I'm totally at ease with myself - love how you tied this in with the prompt.
