People put those around them in certain roles and that is how they order their worlds. when someone makes changes and decides to step outside that framework, the people around them can seem negative or can ignore or minimise what to you is a big, important and positive change. They don’t want you to change because it means that they will have to accommodate that change. Continue with becoming the wonderful person you are and fulfilling their potential and brush of their “I know you” with a “You know how I used to be”.
You don’t have to prove your changes to anyone. You only have to live your life honestly and follow your own path. It may be uncomfortable for a while and frustrating for both you and those around you. The one’s who love you will let you fly, the one’s who don’t will let you go. xxx
We can do one of two things with our family of origin. we can repeat what they do or we can do the opposite. Make that conscious decision to not be like them… they were negative and unhappy and that is exactly what you want to get away from. I don’t know you Nadia, but the fact that you don’t want to perpetuate that way of life and the fact that you want to not only feel good about yourself, but help others do the same suggests to me that you are an incredibly kind, smart and beautiful person. Challenge those inner voices – stop when you hear it and ask yourself – is what this voice is saying to me truth? In your heart you know it is not truth.
It is hard to build self worth and self esteem – it will not be an easy road ( I speak from experience). But you want to – and you will make it happen.xxx
