Have you ever had to deal with people who do nothing but drain you and keep you frustrated, even when you’re trying to help them? Yeah, I’m sure you have. I’m coming to understand, they are not the problem, we are.
It’s okay for us to help and support others, but if we have to chase them down, beg and plead to support them, then we need to move on.
I was speaking with someone not long ago and I asked, “Do you believe in me?” I thought I was going to get a simple reply, but in return they turned the table on me. They responded, “Of course I believe in you, but it sounds like you’ve lost confidence in yourself.” What? Now, how was I to be mad at that when I knew it was the truth.
You see, for the past two years I’ve been wasting time, money and energy on things and people that I was supporting but was not supporting me. What I didn’t realize is that it had started affecting my confidence. I figured, since I kept hitting a brick wall then the problem had to be with me and my vision. Yeah, for a quick minute I became that girl who allowed others to rain on my parade… I’m back (lol) and now stronger than ever.
Who are you around? Who are you sharing your dreams with? Who are you supporting? Who is supporting you? I tell you Butterflies, you better ask these questions and get them answered up front because it will save you lots of time, money and energy. #AskRenee! But most importantly, it will keep you moving in the right direction, eliminate a lot of frustrations as well as keep your confidence level up. If you haven’t done so in a while, pull out your radar, do a crowd check and don’t be afraid to zap those dream snatchers out of your way and move on. When you do that, you’ll make room to attract the motivational movers and your true supporters around you.
Nope, I’m not mad nor am I rambling, I’m just keeping it real, letting go of the experiences and sharing my lessons.
Until the next time have faith, believe in yourself and keep your mind right.
