I feel more than I experience, drink coffee like water, day dream more than I can concentrate, press myself harshly between the pages of a book, make musical escapism an art and I'm still disenchanted; constantly, craving.

Or to keep it simple, I'm Dana and I lean towards the melodramatic.

All that time you spent with her to get to me, you can’t tell me that you didn’t get to know her, and like her. It’s Allison. It’s impossible not to like her.

One day of super clean eating won’t make you drop 10 lbs.
One ridiculously crazy workout won’t get you from start to finish.
One day of being bold and stepping outside your comfort zone won’t achieve your goal.
Doing it once won’t get you there…doing it every day will.  Taking small steps in the right direction every day, consistently, that will get you there.  Taking one GIANT step in the right direction every once in a while…you’re going to be nothing more than frustrated.

There is an important distinction between not giving a fuck about what other people think of you and not giving a fuck about other people’s feelings.

“If you stay, I’ll do whatever you want. I’ll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I’ll do that, too. I was talking to Liz and she said maybe coming back to your old life would be too painful, that maybe it’d be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I’d do it. I can lose you like that if I don’t lose you today. I’ll let you go. If you stay.”

Her heart sank into her shoes as she realized at last how much she wanted him. No matter what his past was, no matter what he had done. Which was not to say that she would ever let him know, but only that he moved her chemically more than anyone she had ever met, that all other men seemed pale beside him.

You can’t spend the rest of your life being afraid of people rejecting you, and you have to start by not rejecting yourself, you don’t deserve it. From now on, people can either accept you for who you are or they can fuck off.

I hate it when men make unsolicited comments about a woman’s body. Like “she’s got a nice shape but she needs to tighten up her stomach”

How about you tighten up your lips and never speak again you ignorant shit.

Wow maybe you need to accept constructive criticism jesus christ.

Men telling me (or any other woman) what I need to do for them to find me sexually attractive is not constructive criticism.

Now on to the second group, which is wholly more nefarious: your wrong people who think they’re your right people.
Your wrong people who think they’re your right people are the human equivalent of car horns that go off in the middle of lunch with a friend you really love, and you can’t quite refocus on the conversation at hand because you’re worried it could be your car going off.

Your wrong people don’t necessarily have bad intentions, but they would like you better if you were something and someone other than who you are. They either aren’t paying close enough attention to realize that you’re not talking to them, or they’re desperate for solutions, have already identified you as someone with great content, and are hoping that you’ll magically deliver exactly what they need in your signature style.

The problem with that?
You don’t want to do the stuff they want you to do. And even if you did, you wouldn’t want to do it for them.

Snobby perspective? Nah. You’ve got limited bandwidth and limited hours in the day to do what you do. You have to be choosy.

Your wrong people who think they’re your right people want you to give them Facebook tips, but you’re a coach who specializes in self-care for entrepreneurs. Your wrong people want you to create $17 products for them, but your brand archetype dictates that you need to be selling high price point programs. Your wrong people try to engage you in bawdy jesting on Twitter {yep, I just said ‘bawdy jesting’ — live it, love it, own it}, and that type of humor horrifies you.

Your wrong people try to extend you in ways that are profoundly uncomfortable for you because they’re not fully seeing you. They’re focused on their needs and desires and how you could meet them, not your strangely powerful talent, which is, as we know, where your extreme goodness resides.
Your wrong people are a dime a dozen. Your right people are a very precious, very select few who want you just as you are when you’re standing in your best, deepest, and truest message.

Here are a collection of statements you might hear from your wrong people:

“Have you ever thought about [insert some idea or activity you would never, ever dream of implementing because it’s so off-brand for you]? I would totally love that and I bet a lot of other people would, too.”
“Can you blog about [insert topic that is not a focus within your suite of ideas]?”
“Would you mind reading over this 5,000 word email and giving me your take on where I’m at and what I need to move forward?” [requests for free help are often indications of wrong people who think they’re your right people; your right people deeply get and respect the work you do and don’t ask you to deliver your livelihood-maker for free]

And don’t even get me started on whether you can convert your wrong people to being your right people. Or do get me started. We can talk about that some other time. But I’m pretty sure you already know which side of the fence I come down on that one.

Abby Kerr, "What To Do About Your Not Quite Right People"

The article is about business, but I thought this part was also appropriate to people in our lives in general, and how the wrong ones can drain us. Though I’m sure many artists can relate to this and their audience!
