I know you’ve heard it before and you’re going to hear it again at least one more time today. You’re not meant to be everyone’s cup of tea.

Today we discuss the reality that you may fully accept who someone is and STILL not be compatible with their reality. It doesn’t mean something is wrong with you. It doesn’t mean something is wrong with them. It just means that for at least some areas of your life, their way of being and yours just don’t line up well. AND THAT’S OK!

In today’s episode, we discuss how to recognize when you’re compatible with someone and what to do when you’re not so that you can build a network of people around you who not only fully see you, but really like what they see.
