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!
