Life and stuff: Stop putting up with bullsh*t
People who expect a lot but give nothing back?
People who are never there when you need them?
This week I am taking a stand. I am not putting up with anymore bullsh*t.
I went to see Sarah on Monday; my first day off in two weeks. Let’s just say I was feeling a little bit crabby.
Without going into too much detail, Sarah’s advice was thus;
- Be bold. Be yourself. Take up some space!
- Don’t be afraid to upset people. The people who support you will stand firm.
- There is a fundamental shift occurring. After years of putting up with bullsh*t, it’s time to compassionately step away from people who continuously cause angst.
- There will be more people coming into your life who respect and appreciate emotional intelligence.
- It’s time to shine!
What a relief it was to hear her say this. I am constantly worrying about how my actions affect other people. I hate hurting people and I know that I often put myself down in order to make other people feel better or less threatened.
I am a big, loud girl. I know I can be scary. It was just so reassuring to hear someone say that it’s OK to be me.
My gift to you, Precious Readers, is this: It’s totally OK to be you. You are perfect just the way you are. You are loved (and the people who don’t love you can just go and get … !!! ).
Have you found a way of clearing the bullsh*t out of your life? Care to share?
