The title itself is deceptive. Someone who tries to gain the approval of masses is the one who usually ends up where masses go: the exit gate.
So does trying to be accepted by everyone really means.
Why not focus on just creating your best value out into the world? Why making it jagged instead of edged so that everyone could fit in? Specific over general. Material over non life existent. All likes on social media versus good lunch with the real friends.
You are not here to allow everyone to appreciate you. If that happens, it is a clear indicator of you definitely doing something veryyyy bad. Go hug the critiques. They are your propellers towards excellence.
