"The only thing stopping you ... is you" .
We are all capable of so much, but we stop ourselves. We don’t believe we can do it, we worry we might fail or we worry what people will think of us.
And we take no action. Inaction creates more doubt and insecurity. And we stay in the exact same place. .
Let’s get out of our on way and start believing in ourselves. COMMIT to our goals & make it happen 💕
One of my goals this new year is to learn how to write in calligraphy/ learn how to letter. I started practicing a bit before New Years and I’ve already come a long way! There’s still room for improvement, but I’m proud of how far I’ve come. I’ve learned that the best way to learn anything is to practice; it’s also best to practice whatever is easiest first, master that, then move onto harder aspects of the goal. I have a few other goals this year as well, like learning a new language to the point of near fluency. I’ll just take it all one step at a time. What are some of your goals? Leave them in the comments!

i crave meaningful one-on-one conversation with a like-minded person //
when in large groups, i tend to get quiet, and often I'll get lost in the shuffle //
i will shut down completely if the crowd is too large and loud //
I'll make an early exit as soon as I feel overwhelmed //
the truth is, i feel more lonely in a large group than I would just being alone //
Ah, but those conversations with just you and me are like magic. I come alive once again. I open up and invite you to know the real me //
it kindles my heart and warms my soul when I capture your undivided attention //
no distractions no interruptions just two people spending their time sharing little pieces of their hearts and minds //
That's a beautiful thing // 🌈

Revenge? Nah I'm too lazy for that. I'm gonna sit here and let karma fuck you.
I see being too apologetic as a problem. It is people pleased behaviour and, as I have discussed before, people pleasing behaviour can be viewed as manipulative. You are being overly nice to get someone to like you. You don’t want them to be annoyed or upset or angry - even though you may not have done anything wrong. So you apologise hoping it will smooth the relationship. So stop ✋🏽 saying sorry all the time for things you haven’t done wrong. Start testing it out. See what happens when you begin standing up for yourself.
P.S this doesn’t apply if you have genuinely done something wrong and want to apologise. Then that apology is brave and shows character.
