School Lessons: Shake The Haters Off

Shake the haters off.

That's my school lesson of the week. I haven't used that phrase in years, but it's relevant. This is why. Since the beginning of 2009 I've seen:

*Grades so low I was ashamed to leave the classroom with those grades in my hand.
*Very destructive criticism (for a second I was starting to think that I had mapped out my college years all wrong).
*Loneliness. I found out what it felt like to always be surrounded by a lot of people and still feel alone. Actually I felt that feeling before. It just managed to manifest again.
*An exciting life. Okay, I have fun from time to time, but I'm always so wrapped up in what other people think that I forget to just enjoy myself.

With all that said I realized the problem was I worried too much about my haters. Someone did remind me recently that there are always going to be people who have some kind of criticism. After all, the only person you can fully please is yourself. So, my goal from now on is to shake the haters off and focus on pleasing the number one person is my life.
