As I work on self care this year there are a few things that I am trying to let go of. I know that in order to move forward sometimes you have to be willing to let go of things as well. I struggle to let go of things. I’ve been that way since I was a child. I have always wanted to hold on to things even when they weren’t good for me. I remember holding on to a dress that my mom wanted me to get rid of but because I loved it. She got rid of it one night when I was sleep. She told me about it many years later. These three things I have been struggling to get rid of for years now. So writing about them is a great reminder. So here they are:
- Self doubt- I have been struggling with this for years. I am always doubting myself. Which leads me to talking myself out of doing some things. Even things that may benefit me.
- Overthinking- Overthinking has really led me to miss out on some opportunities. It really annoys me. Which is basically connected to me doubting my own abilities.
- Caring what other people think- My biggest problem is not doing things for fear of what people are going to say. I am over worrying what people think. So I definitely want to move forward and leave that behind in 2017.
So as a way of moving forward I am going to try to leave that behind. I want to be the best me I can be. I no longer want things to follow. What is something you want to leave in 2017?
