Trying to please everyone but yourself....
Written by KimberlyWyatt on January 23, 2012
For the longest time I was a very shy girl. I wanted to be accepted by those around me so much that I was too scared to just be me. I was afraid that my opinion of life was so warped that by mentioning my own experiences or perspectives, I may scare people away. Or even worse, I might hurt someone's feelings. To avoid it, I'd twirl my inner thoughts in my head, digest how alone they made me feel and swallow them back from ever being heard. Nothing was good enough unless it was given the stamp of approval by those surrounding me.
But times have changed....
I pay a lot more attention to the balance my life needs in order to exist in harmony. I've been pounding the pavement for quite some time. I've been searching in every dark corner for the light that would guide me to my destiny. I work myself into the ground and wonder why life hasn't given me all i want. When I feel empty i force my mind to pick something that will make me feel better. -a bigger house -time with my girlfriends -money -jobs The rat race of learned behaviors succumbs to the power of wanting to feel good.
Pleasing everyone is never going to happen!! Believe me.....I've tried for years and I have failed for years!! LOL People will come and go. Friends will pop in and out of your life. Jobs will have their ups and downs. Family will have it's tug-of-wars, relationships will experience bliss and heartache. But the world still evolves around the sun and the moon around the Earth. We are a very small part of a much bigger picture. So don't be scared to put yourself first in your own life. Work at being a good person, share your wonderful self with each new day. When you are inspired to give....you give.....but not just because you want to make someone else feel good....but because it makes YOU feel good too!!!!
