Hey hey everyone!
It’s Monday again, which mostly sucks…because it’s Monday…but it also means it’s time for another Inspirational Monday post! And I love writing these…so Monday has become a love-hate kinda day for me xD
The quote I chose today is also very important to myself! As you might maybe remember from this post, one of my resolutions was not giving so much importance to what others think of me and not act accordingly to what others think I should act, instead acting like myself!
Truth be told…I’ve been the kind of person that always wants to make everyone around me happy…I always sacrificed myself and my happiness for other (regardless if they were my friends, my boyfriends or my family..) and honestly…I found out the hard way that sometimes…sometimes you have to think about what’s good for you and not what others think you should do!
Last year I had some drama around me coming from some extremely negative people and it was getting me really down…think getting panic attacks and being exhausted and not being able to sleep, you name it! I was letting random people, who weren’t even my friends, dictate how my life should be…and I was changing because of it..I stopped being the person I always was…and eventually…I was done with it! I just…I remember looking at my Mr and saying I’m done..things couldn’t go on like that…and he supported me (like he always does) and told me I should be me and not what others think I should be…regardless of who they are…
Bottom line is…when I let go of other people’s drama..stopped letting their negativity affect me and stopped giving a fuck if they hate me or not, I finally started feeling like myself again!
I realized I was losing myself along the way..and for what? To make random people happy? Because, even if you have been friends with someone for years…if they want you to change and be who they want you to be…then they’re not your friends at all!!! And they start having less and less importance in your life…until they just don’t matter anymore…or maybe they were never your friends…they might have been your best friend’s friends…or your cousins friends…or just some colleagues you share class with…or even just your boyfriends friends…but they’re not important to you!
My Dad once told me you don’t have to like someone just because they’re family..and the same applies to friends and colleagues! You don’t have to be friends with someone just because they hang out with the group you hang out with! In an ideal world, you would only be with people you love…but I think by now we all know the world is far from being perfect, right?
Don’t feel guilty for cutting drama out of your life! It will make you happier…will make you feel better…lighter (trust me, it’s like a weight was lifted off of your shoulders!) and of course, if you’re happier, you’ll look fresher and more beautiful!
What’s there to think about? =P
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know what you think!!!
