Be happy. Be who you want to be. If others don't like it, then let them be. Happiness is a choice. Life isn't about pleasing everybody.
We have only short life in this world, so we make our life to be happy always. You're the only one can make happy of yourself. Seriously. You don't need the people that don't like you anyways.
Don't worry Be happy and smile always. You cannot please everyone. Sometimes sacrifices and choices have to be made. Pray, God first, family and take some time to have quiet time with you and GOD. You'll know what to do and don't be hard on yourself. People will understand and if they don't, that's their issue.
I’m a man of many faces and places , their trying to change me ended up in their no longer liking who they now had !!! Today I sit and say thanks and smile ... it’s been a slice.
