I Hate Peaches!!!

My then 13-year-old daughter came home from school very upset one day. Some kids at her school were being pretty mean, and she couldn't figure out why they didn't like her. It was one of those moments when I felt like a parenting champ. Here's what I told her: "I hate peaches." I wish I could've captured the look on her face—utter confusion mixed with a hint of "What does this have to do with anything?" But I went on, connecting my dislike for peaches to the ups and downs of life. You see, peaches are like the universally loved fruit. Most people love them, and my family even makes this legendary homemade peach ice cream. But guess what? I just can't get into that peachy flavor. Now, does my distaste for peaches make them any less perfect or delicious for everyone else? Nope! It's the same with people. There will always be folks out there who don't like you, but that doesn't make you any less awesome or lovable. It just says something about them!

This lesson was gold for my 13-year-old, but let's be real, we all need a reminder sometimes. Even as a grown woman chasing big dreams, not everyone's going to be your BFF or biggest cheerleader. Some folks might not even be nice to you. But remember, that's on them, not you. It doesn't chip away at your worth, your amazingness, or your lovability. It's all about them and how they see the world.

So whether you're navigating the tricky waters of adolescence or pursuing your wildest dreams, here's the deal: not everyone will be on Team You, and that's okay. Your worth isn't up for debate, and their opinions say more about them than they do about you. Embrace your uniqueness, keep chasing those dreams, and know that your flavor is a vital part of life's grand mixtape. You do you, and keep being awesome! 🍑✨
