My Recent Biggest Mistakes

Hey loves!

So I’m just going to put it out there.

I can’t be nice and positive all of the time…

There’s been a few moments recently that I’ve slipped. Or maybe a lot of moments? I want to talk to you about these three mistakes I’ve made, and what I’ve concluded. (And no, the dirty mirror in my selfie isn’t one of them hehe.)

1. I Put Myself Down-even worse, in public.

I told y’all here that I expected my new job would be a challenge, because of all the different tasks I would take on. I do enjoy the challenge, I swear! I want to do my best, so in the midst of not wanting to disappoint those around me I said things like, “I don’t want to mess this up.” and “I can’t wait to learn more so that I’m not an inconvenience.” Every time I think about it, I cringe! Now I am thinking more than I speak and only expressing positive and reaffirming thoughts.

2. I bad-mouthed a friend who made me angry.

Long story short, I felt betrayed by a friend. I had a few too many drinks and expressed these emotions… and not to her. Afterwards, I felt tacky.  And I felt bad for airing my dirty laundry. From now on, I’ll only express my issues to the person I’m having them with. It doesn’t matter who is right, nothing good ever comes from talking 💩.

Disclaimer: I didn’t say anything bad about her, I wouldn’t do my girl like dat. I expressed my disappointment in her actions. Either way, it was tacky.

2. I played the comparison game.

I’ve never been the one to compare myself to others until recently. Maybe because the older we get the more we are expected to have certain accomplishments? Either way, the last month I went through a rut where I felt like I nor my blog were good enough.  I know, it’s stupid, but it’s honestly how I felt. Anyway, I gave myself a social media detox, and now I feel much better. ☺️ Moving forward, I’m making it a point to only concentrate on doing me and doing my best.

WOO, I hope you still like me. 🙂 I’m human too. I don’t want anyone to think that I’m nice and bubbly all of time, because I’m not 👹. However, I promise I am a good person with good intentions.

Have you been through anything similar?

See you Friday!

    To be happy, we must not be too concerned with others :).
    Its been hard but I’m learning to live by this. Too many times, I’ve put myself down when I compared myself to my friends and thought their life’s were perfect and thought my life was a disaster. I have been thru some difficult times in my life, but I have realized no ones life is perfect. I’m thankful for every day and everything I have because I know some people are less fortunate.
    I love your blogs, I can relate to most of them!

    #2 is on my list for sure, and let me tell you – I have grown and learned from that incident BIG TIME! There are times I feel super regretful and angry at myself for it still but I have to remember we grow the most from our mistakes.

    I loved this post so much!

    No one is perfect, life is about striving to be better as you go on. This is a great post, I and I am sure many others can relate to this. I am consistently guilty of putting myself down in public and comparing myself to others. Both can be hard habits to break, and are reinforced by our society.

    I get the comparison game.. Back in high school I did that a lot, but learned to stop, until last year. I compared myself a lot, most people I knew was either graduating college, getting married or having babies.. And what was I doing.. Recently I realized that I’m just taking a different path.. and it’s okay that I’m not where everyone else is, because I’m happy now.. Thank you for this post! It’s nice to know there are others who struggle with it..
