Fix me

Monday, November 19, 2012

There's a sentence going round my mind. I don't know if I made it up or if I read it somewhere and it just got stuck in there.

'I can't laugh at myself; people did it for me so often that I never learned how.'

If I didn't make it up then I should have because I'm realising just how apt it is when I think about my life. I miss out on SOOO many things because I'm afraid of doing or saying something wrong and being laughed at for it.

Now I've realised the problem, how do I fix it?

That will probably be my next goal when I get to target weight: stop taking myself so seriously!

That is all.

    Care just a little less about what people think. When you turn down the volume, see what happens...

    I have some quotes that motivate me(I love quotes, as you can tell from some of my posts :] ).

"Every day is a brand new page in your autobiography. What will you write on it today?" - this helps me realize that I am CREATING my life, life is not something that is happening to me. If I want something, I need to make it happen. And whenever I've tried to make a change, things have usually fallen into place.


"There is no failure, only feedback." - this is a quote from NLP that I try to keep in mind. If I failed at something so what? It's only feedback to try a different approach.

and finally

"What would you do if you knew you could not fail?" - just do it!! No one remembers our failures and embarrassments as much as we do. Everyone is just wrapped up in their own selves for the most part, and that is a good thing imo. :)

    I am the same way!!! I am so self-conscious all the time. I wish I could be otherwise, but I'm not sure it's something I can change...

    It is definitely tough for many people to go out there & try new things. I used to always be nervous people would be talking about me without me knowing. I basically told myself this "People talk no matter what - good, bad, awful, nice... people always have a comment and we can't please everyone".
I used to feel embarassed - but now I just don't care most of the time! I want to please myself instead of doing the impossible task of trying to please everyone else! It isn't easy, but starting out with little things may help you out. Do something small and keep adding to it!

Good luck!
