One thing I’ve found hard on this journey called life, is not giving a damn about what other people think of me. There are days where I really couldn’t care less, their opinion of me isn’t my business, and there are days when I find myself crippled by anxiety over what someone has said, or allegedly said.
Why the hell do we do this to ourselves?
If we get caught up in what the haters think then we are giving them free reign over our lives. Live your life and forget about those who haven’t got anything positive to say to you, or about you. Leave them to their toxicity.
Sometimes it’s the easiest thing to do – giving up. But we never accomplish anything by quitting. Keep going, no matter how hard things seem. You will get there one day, and when you do you’ll be glad you didn’t quit.
I’ve spent the past few months trying to smile instead of frown, or glare. It hasn’t always worked, life sometimes just throws huge curveballs at us and it’s difficult to see the positive.
What I have noticed is that whenever I smile instead of feeling gloomy or angry, I feel more adept at dealing with whatever life has thrown at me.
I talk a lot about the intensive therapy that I had earlier in the year. This is because it had such a positive impact on my life and has allowed me to release so much negativity that was weighing me down. That included hiding my true self from the world.
I have found that I am so much happier, I’m at peace with myself, when I am being truly me. I won’t apologise for who I am, not anymore. I won’t hide away fearing what others may say; if they have an issue with my true self then that is their issue to deal with, not mine.
Always shine brightly.
I’ve known many fake people in my life and it is sad to think that they have felt they have to make a persona up in order to be liked.
It’s also sad that some people do not like us because we are being our genuine selves. It’s easy to blame the advent of social media on this, but people being fake is nothing new.
I like the quotes that encourage us to be ourselves, telling us that the world needs our uniqueness. Such quotes inspire me to keep on being myself. I often have to remind myself that not everyone is going to like me and that is ok, that’s just how life is.
Keep on being yourself. The world needs your uniqueness.
You can choose to stop the perpetual negativity and move forward into positivity.
I’ve had a flood of memories come back to me recently, probably courtesy of the intensive therapy I had earlier in the year.
This year has been a rollercoaster for me emotionally, and so many emotional blocks have been removed from me; the jury is still out on whether or not that’s a good thing.
The amount of emotional stuff I’ve repressed for so many years is jaw dropping, I have no idea how I’ve kept it all inside of me.
On the flip side of the emotional mess that has been literally leaking out of me (tears) I’ve found solace in music and I’m happy to report so many happy memories have come flooding back to me.
This particular song that I wanted to share is one of many that remind me of a time when all was well in my world and my family was intact. Childhood memories and songs that remind us of simpler, happier times are always best shared.
I hope you enjoy this tune as much as I do.
I’ve been very absent, I know. I’ve had such a lot going on and it’s been difficult for me to find the time to actually blog.
I’m a little emotional right now. I was reading my daughter’s blog earlier and she was discussing baby loss.
It made me think about my baby loss back in 1996. I then went on to have another baby, my son, my rainbow baby.
My rainbow baby is all grown up now, he’s 22 years old. He’s heading off to Uni (21/09) and I’m feeling quite emotional that my youngest, my rainbow baby, is leaving home.
He is pursuing his dreams and for that I am super proud of him. He’ll do great at Uni and his future looks bright.
