One day you decide that you’re not going to let life get you down. You say to yourself… “I am going to stay positive. I am going to do more of the things that bring me joy. Laughing more, smiling more and enjoying life more is going to be my priority. I am going to stop ignoring the things that make me happy. I am going to love me!” Then it seems as soon as you start on your new positive journey… BAM!
Here They Come
Here comes somebody in your life that starts complaining because you’re not being who they want you to be. You’re not doing the things they want you to do. You don’t feel like sitting around being negative anymore.
I hate to say it but sometimes in order to be positive for yourself you have to shut yourself off to what the people around you say and feel. There is nothing wrong with caring for the people in your life but sometimes those same people have the ability to take you off track.
The reason why you decided to start your new journey is because you knew it was the best thing to do for YOU. It is at those times that you may start to realize that DOING YOU means you can’t always do what others want you to do… You can’t always be who others think you should be… Don’t always act the way others feel you should act. You may start to realize that DOING YOU means you have to shut off caring about the opinions of others and be who you need to be for YOU. It’s good to love others but not at the expense of loving yourself. So give yourself permission to
DO YOU for as long as you need to!
