That fleeting feeling of acceptance. Acceptance by everyone? Or acceptance by those you want to be accepted by. Ah yes, popularity.
The ability to be listened to or heeded by everyone you want to listen to you or heed your word. Along with that popularity and those you WANT to listen to you or heed your word, comes those you don’t want paying attention to you. The neer do wells. The outcasts who would prey upon you if given a chance.
Popularity is all about self confidence. It’s more about the ability to listen to the positive rhetoric you lay on yourself and the ability to ignore the negative. Because the idea of popular is inside yourself. If you get it that there will always be others who are prettier, richer, smarter, faster, slower, less intelligent, in more need of help…then and only then can you have the self confidence to call yourself popular.
Acceptance by those you want to be accepted by….yourself.
