One of the best things I could ever do for myself is cutting some people out of my life. Relationships that stopped serving me and just sucked energy out of me, people who made me feel guilty about my emotions, people who made me doubt their intentions or worse- myself, people who made me feel anxious, people who called me when they didn't have anything better to do and treated me like an option, people who used me to make themselves feel better, people who lied to me, people who made me feel insecure and so on. There are some people who tolarate it, because they don't take this kind of behaviour personally and it's ok. I can't, I'm fragile and sensitive. And it's ok too. After being to a hell and back with one of relationships I had, I learned that I'm the only one who's responsible for myself.
I know I'm not the easiest person to share relationship with, I have my issues, I'm an introvert, I'm impatient, I can be cold and harsh sometimes, I overthink and overfeel sometimes. I avoid shallow relationships, shallow conversations. I hate lies. If you can accept that and like me anyway, I'll give you the best of me. If you can't accept that, leave me alone instead of taking me on a guilt trip, trying to change me or manipulate me. I'm better off without you. I'm a highly sensitive person and I learned how to accept it and take care of myself and protect myself from harm and abuse. Instead of feeling guilty about who I am and what I feel as I used to do, I started to trust my guts and listen to my heart. I was lost so many times, I beat myself up with harming thoughts and I still wondered what's wrong with me and how to get friends and make them like me. The worst relationship I ever had was the one I had with myself. Not anymore. The simple truth is that, when you are in peace with yourself, when you accept and love yourself, have your values, set your boundaries, understand that you deserve the best both from yourself and from the ones around you, know how you want to be treated by others, you start to live authentic.I love this quote: Confidence is not “they will like me”. Confidence is “I’ll be fine if they don’t”.
“My soul is impatient with itself, as with a bothersome child; its restlessness keeps growing and is forever the same. Everything interests me, but nothing holds me. I attend to everything, dreaming all the while. I'm two, and both keep their distance—Siamese twins that aren't attached.” ―Fernando Pessoa
Remember to be proud of yourself. No victory is too small.💪🏻 The last two days were full of small and bigger victories which happened on my yoga mat so totally shamelessy I have to admit I'm proud of myself. I'm lucky to have a lovely teacher who encourages me to be better and stronger. I said hello to Ashtanga's Intermediate Series with open heart. Now it's time for a serious and well deserved recharging. 🙏🏻
A big duckface for all of Birthday wishes you left me here and on Facebook. Sometimes when I read some beautiful comments here I start thinking that the person behind that comment doesn't even know how happy she/he makes me feel. Many times I've felt that writing 'thank you' is just not enough. Today I don't know what to say either. I really appreciate every word written here by you, guys. Love you. ❤💋
"So many people glorify and romanticize 'busy.' I do not. I value purpose. I believe in resting in reason and moving in passion. If you’re always busy/moving, you will miss important details. I like the mountain. Still, but when it moves, lands shift and earth quakes." —Joseph Cook
