Do you ever feel that tinge of hatred to yourself about something you say or do?
Hating yourself is not only detrimental to your happiness but can also hurt your chances of getting to live the life you want for yourself.
If you worry about thinking differently, it can stop you from not only being your own person but happy and self-assured.
I get it, you just want to be the same as everyone else; same interests, the same point of view and enjoy the same things.
This way of thinking has been carried from generation to generation, but is now, quite frankly, outdated. Generations ago we didn’t have the option to meet people. It was safer to follow everyone else, simply fit in, and not drift from your community.
Today, however, we have far more opportunity to meet people that share the same point of view.
Change is a part of life and all have to deal with it at some point. Yet some of us are scared of change and run from it when faced with change.
Why are you not able to accept change? And let’s start amending your relationship to change:
You have 10 seconds to make a first impression on someone which you cannot go back on.
We are genetically programmed to make a first impression which either does or doesn’t instill trust in you.
A lot of pressure right?
One of the main reasons you may not be happy might be because of procrastination.
In this week’s blog, I want to help you to stop procrastinating. Helping you to get what you need to get done today.
Caring about what others think of you can hold you back and stop you from truly believing in yourself.
Do you constantly second guess yourself?
In essence, you are living so that other people are happy with your behaviour.
If you are reading this blog, I imagine it is because you don’t think you are very interesting.
Do you feel that you have nothing to say, no one wants to talk to you or that you just feel alone?
If you think this is true – I don’t. I think you have lots to say and in fact, your point of view is just as important and knowledgeable as anyone else’s.
Let’s start to change that point of view so that you believe that you are an interesting person.
Jealousy is a response to something that you want but don’t feel able to achieve.
Underlying that feeling of jealousy is frustration and anger for not having what others do have. It is seen within our society as wrong to act on these emotions, so we are taught to run from ‘bad’ or ‘negative’ feelings.
To be rich, successful or even happy, you need self-belief. Self-belief gives the strength to want, try, get what you want and pick yourself up when things go wrong.
Many go through life not believing in themselves. Why is that? There can be any number of reasons, such as being bullied at school or people telling you that you can’t do it.
Feeling alone can be awful.
You can be surrounded by people but you can still feel like no one understands you or that you can’t be yourself.
Feeling lonely is just like feeling any number of negative emotions such as sadness, anger or frustration. It is a feeling telling you that something needs to change in your life.
Sometimes that feeling of loneliness can be so powerful that you find it impossible to think or feel anything else. You might feel stuck in a perpetual loop of sadness or self-hatred.
