I'm struggling with this too!
It's really hard! 🤗
@Bailey253 I know it's unrealistic to completely stop caring what others think of me. We're social beings & crave acceptance & validation from others. But I don't want to hold myself back or avoid doing things that I really want to do just because I fear what others might think. Maybe we have to take baby steps?
“Be yourself.” Do things that you think will make people not like you. Then let the pieces fall where they may. This is courage. This is ERP. 💞 sending lots of love. It’s a battle for sure
That's my biggest struggle because I feel that people expect perfection from me. Or if I put boundaries up, they'll leave.
@Bailey253 You’ll feel like you’re putting all of your eggs in one basket, throwing yourself into the fire, possibly ending the world. But you’ll get through it and realize it was worth it. Not to give reassurance but I’ve learned that nobody gives a flying f— about anyone but themselves most of the time. We’re our own worst critics. Try not to believe the distortions. “Have courage and be kind.” -Cinderella movie https://youtu.be/3DzMyyUPfNY
