Other people will tell you that you can’t do things, you can’t reach your goals. Don’t listen to them. They don’t know what is in your heart, they don’t know how hard you are fighting to attain your goal. Know that you have it inside you to reach beyond what others think is possible. Know you can achieve your goal.
“Life is not tried, it is merely survived
if you’re standing outside the fire”
Everyone loves to know they are appreciated now and then. Pay it forward and shower someone in gratitude! :)
You deserve to be respected and to respect yourself. Don’t let others treat you poorly or make you feel like you aren’t worth anything, you are. Even if you can’t see it right now you are. You deserve more than someone saying hurtful things to you or treating you in a manner that is hurtful. Respecting yourself also has to come from within. Don’t look at yourself in a negative way or treat yourself negatively. It’s hard to see the forest through the trees sometimes, but I promise you are worthy and deserving of self respect and respect from others.
Do not be held down by what you cannot control.
If we tell ourselves lies and believe them it is easier for us to lie to others. However, if we are brave enough to tell the truth to ourselves we can have strength to be honest with others.
1. It will make you feel physically better. Less anxiety, better feelings.
2. You get to say how you really feel.
3. If they really know you they probably know something is bothering you anyway. This will relieve their nervousness too.
Say what you need to say. Everyone will feel better.
There is always another way. Change your situation entirely if you can or little by little each day. Don’t be stuck, you can always switch something around. There’s always a second option.
Like my grandmother says: Dust is always more visible when you stir it up.
