Yet again I’ve missed transformation Tuesday. Oh well. I want to talk about confidence today. Specifically the confidence you gain on this journey and how some people may react to it.
Yesterday it was brought to my attention, anonymously, that someone in my life sees my new found confidence as “off-putting.” They believe I act as though I feel I am better than everyone else and that I’m not as nice as I used to be. Honestly, I was expecting this type of reaction at some point, but that doesn’t mean it still doesn’t sting a little bit.
I am more confident, yes, but I don’t believe I’m better than anyone else. I’m just as nice as I used to be but now I have my limits. I’m no longer a door mat. I am confident in who I am. I am happy with who I am.
There are people in your life that will be jealous of your journey, your dedication, your hard work. There are people who will see your new confidence as a bad thing. Those are the people who liked when you had none because they could walk all over you. Screw them. You can’t make everyone happy and honestly, making yourself happy and HEALTHY is what matters most anyway. #confidence #weightloss #fitness #wls #selflove #doormatnomore
