I’m back with another NaBloPoMo writing prompt. Today I’m going to share a worry that I would love to permanently drop. One of my biggest worries that have plagued me for a majority of my life is what people think of me. I don’t know why but people not liking me has always bothered me. I have even adjusted my life to be what people thought that I should be. I know I was doing all this because I wanted to fit in and I wanted friends. I also was not comfortable in my own skin. I just wanted people to like me. It’s interesting now that I think about it as I became who I thought they wanted me to be they became disinterested in me. Then after awhile we were no longer friends.
I feel if I were able to shut down that little voice that says hey if you do this people may not like it then I would be a more successful person. Of course there are some situations where what people think are important but it affects me more than normal. Like almost every aspect of my life. It can really be hindering. I am slowly getting to the point to where what I want, how I feel, and how I look are just important to me. It is fun trying new things and enjoying doing it and not worrying about how others will see me. I’m now trying to focus on the things that will make me happy.
There is nothing worse than to be doing what makes others happy and feels is right for you and you aren’t happy yourself. What is a worry that you would love to drop permanently?
