One thing I am learning from being on my journey to better myself is that not everyone is going to understand my journey. I used to go around and talk about everything I was going to do and what I wanted to do. Then by the end of the year or even years later I would be embarrassed because I was still where I was before. It would depress me when people would ask me if I had accomplished whatever idea I said I was going to accomplish. Then there were people who I didn’t share my journey with whom would just assume I wasn’t working towards anything at all. Then there are the people who I shared my ideas with and they didn’t believe in me at all. All these experiences have got me to thinking that maybe I am sharing my dream/journey with too many people. Maybe I need to keep my journey to myself and share with people who are on a similar journey as me. Plus I am learning the more people you tell your dreams and idea to the more pressure you place on yourself to achieve whatever you said you were going to do or prove your naysayers wrong. This unnecessary pressure can turn a dream into more work than it was meant to be in the beginning. It takes away from what you are trying to accomplish. So I have decided to stop sharing my dreams with everyone and try to quietly pursue them. I am realizing that it is okay not to share with everyone. I am only adding more pressure to myself by doing this. Also I realize in order to continue on my journey I have to surround myself with people who encourage me to keep going. Everyone doesn’t always have the best wishes for me. So I need to have people who want me to succeed in my life. Because once again my journey isn’t for everyone. If they are rooting for me there isn’t any reason for them to doubt me they will just support.
Basically my whole point is that everyone is not going to understand why you are doing what you are doing. They may not even care for it. But as long as you believe in yourself and know where you want to end up they don’t need to understand it. I for one believe in me. I hope that I achieve everything that I dream of.
