“You are not stuck where you are unless you want to be”
Changing your life is easier said than done, but not impossible. For me, changing myself constantly and being the best version of me possible is important for many reasons. It makes it easier to deal with negative blows, negative people and the exciting and positive things, too.
Today I’m going to share with you how I change my own life and hope that it may assist you in changing yours, if not, enjoy the read anyway!
I started with locating the negatives in my life, what sucked my energy out.
I decided that I didn’t have time for people who held ulterior motives behind what they said or did. So I cut them out. (It’s up to you if you want to explain yourself to that person or not). When you do this you realise what you want in friendships and relationships alike.
I stopped caring what people thought, if you know your own faults and flaws then anything anyone says to you will splash off you like water off a ducks back. Life is about fixing things you can and accepting those you cannot.
Then, I looked at the positives.
I embraced the exciting and challenging things. I’ve thrown a lot of my attention into my studies and it’s had a positive affect. With a clear mind, you can focus on the greater things.
Another thing that I found important to my personal growth, is taking responsibility for my actions and words. There’s always a ripple affect with what you say and what you do, do you want it to have a positive outcome or a negative outcome? Not blaming others for what you do or how your life turns out is super important. It’s no one else’s responsibility if you’re broke, if you’re social life is non-existent, if you can’t get the grades you want and so on. It’s all up to you and what you do with your time, money and life.
Ultimately, you surround yourself with the people you want. If you’re hanging around with narcissistic or rude people, then chances are you put them there. (With the exception of bullying. No one asks to get bullied by people or being surrounded by bullies, as sometimes you can’t avoid it if you’re in school, at work etc).
The key lessons here:
- Take responsibility for yourself.
- Believe in yourself that you can do things. Don’t put your negativity on others.
- Don’t blame others for your problems.
- Listen to yourself.
- Do what makes you happy.
- Surround yourself with the people you want.
- Don’t be afraid to say no.
- Don’t be afraid to cut people off.
- Don’t take you’re anger out on others.
- Speak up.
- Always be yourself.
