Alright how many of you let other people dictate how you feel? Come on now I know there are more of you than that! Me included!!! We have those irritating people in our lives that think only THEY KNOW whats Best for US right? Wrong! I get so tired of people that try to tell you what you should or should not do or put you down for a tiny victory to them but a HUGE one to you!!! It angers me intently and sometimes I would let that dictate my weight loss. Yes I would sometimes QUIT trying to lose weight based on what a loved one my have said. I have struggled hard for over ten years trying to lose weight that I finally have people in my life that encourage me. So when I have one of those mountains to share that I have beaten - I share it with them! I quit sharing things with those happiness stealers and focus on the positive. I have had enough negative in my life that I need to look for the positive.
I have one person that I can think of in particular who LOVES to put me down and that has had a direct and significant affect on my life. Before God and I met I let this person literally rule my life - every single area. After I came to know God on a very personal level, I started looking for people that were uplifting and would stick through the thick and thin. Now I realize I CAN DO IT!!! You can too and I am in this for the long haul. If you ever need somoene to talk to that understands...I am always here to lend an ear or to just pray with you!
Praise the Lord!! I'm so happy to hear that you have decided to be kind to yourself. It's shameful but true that there will always be people around us who want to see us fail. We don't have control over others, but we can control our actions and thoughts. Keep Sparking and loving yourself!! 1706 days ago
