“But it’s all right now, I’ve learned my lesson well
You see, you can’t please everyone, so you’ve got to please yourself.”

From the song “Garden Party” (1972) by Rick Nelson

Have you ever really thought about what it would take to please everyone? You would need to know exactly what was going on in each of their minds, what issues they had, what likes and dislikes… It’s hard enough trying to determine these things for one person, say your spouse, or another loved one, but imagine doing this for everyone!!! You would end up in a lunatic asylum.

So, it’s a no-brainer – just do what is right for you and prepare for the backlash for it WILL come.

If you are bombarded by snowflakes who are offended by you but they keep returning to you – this usually involves frequenting your online platforms – remind them that no one is holding a gun to their head. The fact that they would keep returning to someone that they claim to find repulsive, rude, arrogant, stubborn, selfish, egotistical, judgmental, or what…ever…is a sign of their own hypocrisy, or some other deep-seated issue(s).

If they adhere to the “Law of Attraction”, remind them that THEY attracted you into their lives so that you can mirror them back to themselves – they are powerful manifesters, after all.

They also do not have the right to tell you what to do in your own domain. They wouldn’t allow it in their spaces, so what makes them think they can do it on your turf? 

If none of the above works, then tell them to take a hike. You would be entitled to do the same to someone who is trespassing on your property. It’s either that, or going batshit crazy trying to please them (you know there’s no pleasing them, right?). I know which path I would take because I have already taken it.
