Everyone just wants to be liked and accepted

Trying to please everybody or say and do the right things so that people think we are ‘ok’ is pretty much what we all seem to do.  We actually want people to like us.  We get disturbed and feel uncomfortable when they don’t give us their approval.

We waste a lot of time working to be ‘approved’ by others.

Why do we do that?

Why can’t we be like Tim?

As long as we aren’t hurting anybody, surely we should all dare to be different?  It is, after all, only those who dare to be different that ever make a difference.
