1. The Taunts Of Mean Girls
I wish that I had realised that the taunts of mean girls at school were just a cry for help and attention. It has taken me years (too many) to realise that girls are mean for two reasons. One; they want to be like you. Two; they want what you have.
We don’t need to carry around old stories that these girls once told us. Especially if they are killing your joy and holding you back. Let them go!
2. Blending In Is Boring
I see this in my kids, they don’t want to be “too different” because that will draw attention to them. They simply want to blend in and fly under the radar. I wish that I had the courage back when I was younger to not blend in. Don’t get me wrong I definitely had times that I stood out, as I’m sure you did too. However, …
Imagine if we never felt the need to please others, be liked and blend in. The impact we could and would make. Blows my mind!
3. Belief Comes From Within
I realise that this sounds like it comes straight from a Hallmark card. But if I think back to all the wasted energy I spent seeking the approval of others, it’s a lot. Over the years as I’ve got older, wiser and sexier (I refuse to believe that I can be anything else as I age *wink*) I have got better at this.
If we expect and want others to believe in us, then we must first believe in us! The belief must come from within each of us and emit from us like a light. Yes, there is some limiting belief stuff that crops up but…Belief in you starts with YOU!
