Accepting Your Best and Worst
Being accepting of who you are is not so easy.
There is the group who likes to be liked. This is my group.
Then there are those who do not think they will be liked and make sure of it.
Both of them are hiding from who they really are.
Not accepting the best of who they are, and recognizing the worst of who they are.
Being real with yourself is one of the harder things to do.
We build an identity and want to stick with it.
Switching behaviors, locations, friends can mess with this identity.
Times like this make it easy to loose a sense of self and start reacting to the world, instead of knowing who you are and what matters to you.’
Outside Point of View
Asking a couple of people who know you in different ways can help you to build a more realistic picture of yourself.
Who do you think you share with people, and who do you actually share with people.
Is being enthusiastic about everything make you more likable, or does it make you one dimensional.
Everything can not always be great, and fantastic. For people who see you every once in awhile that can be fine.
If someone sees you more on the regular it builds a sense of unease.
We know that everyday can’t be “amazing”. It is OK that it isn’t.
Connection can happen through many shared stories that are both joyful and sad.
If everything is awful all the time, then other people know that is what you are bringing, not so much the outside world.
Little Bit of Everything
There are people and situations you would rather put on a mask and muddle through.
What would happen if you didn’t. Not sharing why things are not going your way, but sharing that you feel there not may be enough.
Today isn’t a great day. You know what? That is fine, it will pass!
Do you ever check in with others for self evaluation? If so, how does it leave you feeling?
Muddle this over during your training breaks. Hmmmm!!
