For most of my life I didn't understand why I worry so much about what other people think of me... I often asked myself: Are they pleased with me or bothered by me? Did I say something wrong? Am I doing the right thing? When opinions or acknowledgment from others give you comfort like that it's hard to live really. You don't move on first and foremost. You stay in a standstill or go spiral into a swirly world and you don't grow. Probably why I always had episodes of anxiety feeling suffocated by the walls I built for myself. All these are blockages from feeling unworthy of making my own decisions, leaving my own mark or simply taking risks, feeling I don't deserve my dream... I always used say "NO" to my own thoughts until someone else agrees and approves of it only then will I say "YES"... Recently a friend of mine asked if I wished to be interviewed and at first thing I said to myself was "Nah, I'm not ready for that..." and then another voice in me said "Go for it, if it doesn't work at least you know it's not meant for you. No regrets, only lessons!" So I said yes to him and when I did , a day after I received two interview requests. Amazing how many doors open for you if you simply seize the day. The key is that "YES"... POSITIVITY opens up that door for POSSIBILITIES !
