Goals For 2020: Less NAY. MORE YAY!

Being overly concerned about how others think of you before actually thinking about yourself can be problematic for your overall happiness and personal growth.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

There is such stress within when we hold in or ignore what we’re feeling.

I did that often as a child because I was raised to respect my elders, stay in a child’s place, etc. All that. Uggh!

I’ve made up for all of that as a grown woman, occasionally much to the displeasure of a few.
Confident Women With Voices are often viewed as problematic by some. Your boldness and courage are both admirable until you say or do something that they don’t agree with.

Far too many of us are running from our truth or camouflaging it. Or so we think we are.

People pleasing and trying to fit in when we aren’t completely welcomed or are misunderstood is destructive and often impacts our self-respect.

When we aren’t completely at peace, few people in our lives will be either.

Discontent tends to seep outward from the smallest of openings.

Yes, in ways you don’t even realize, others, especially your loved ones are feeling the wrath of your frustrations.

We’re actually lying to ourselves,
because we’re tolerating, accepting and denying the complete picture.

I, for example, know that I need to detox and disconnect from a few people who are not serving my spirit positively in both my personal and business spaces.

For various reasons I have delayed doing so, but I am 100% committed to going into 2020 with less baggage.

People included.

Because I’m worthy and I have no room in my P.S. (personal space) for B.S.

What have you been holding in or avoiding that needs to be said or acted upon?

Say it like you mean it.

Releasing it verbally is a start.

Otherwise, the only one who suffers is you.
