Stop Caring & Start Living
I choose me. I’m not going to wait for anyone else to motivate me, take care of me, or cheer me on. I’m going to reevaluate my whole life and see what makes me happy and what doesn’t. And it’s really time to eliminate the people in my life who don’t genuinely care. I deserve better, wait no, I deserve the best. Life is not a guessing game. No need to be indecisive. Grown women need to take care of themselves. I am a grown-ass woman who works really hard. It’s time I take better care of myself.
For the most part, you can’t wait around for someone else to make you happy. It’s your job to make sure you have joy, peace, and a healthy lifestyle. Many times we allow toxic people to pollute our minds, bodies, space, and/or atmosphere. It’s time to take out the trash. When did your problems become my problems? Oh, and why do you have the same issues year after year? Some people aren’t trying to be better and they wonder why life keeps kicking their butts! Taking short-cuts will only work for so long. Get-up and do the work!
Furthermore, stop caring about what people think.
We can’t allow other people’s opinions to control our lives. How will you ever know what you love or like if you’re always worried about what someone else thinks? Trying to impress others all the time is expensive. I don’t know about you, but I personally can’t afford it. I’d rather just be myself and put all my faith in God. Men and women are not always dependable but God will always be there to give you strength.
Time is flying and unfortunately, no one lives forever.
Take care of yourself. Stress kills. Whoever is causing you to stress is committing attempted murder. I know life’s not fair but no one said you had to walk around miserable or subject yourself to unhappy people. I’ll take the good with the bed but please believe the good should ALWAYS outweigh the bad. Some people you have to love from afar.
Give yourself permission to walk away from that man who has been mistreating you for years. He’s only doing what you allow. We have to take responsibility for our lives and openly admit that people treat us a certain way because we let them. And if they see you don’t care about your own well-being, hygiene, or appearance that opens the door to disrespect.
Some women don’t know what they really want or like because their life is too cluttered with too many human beings and their mess. It’s ok if you chill at home, get off social media, and really take a look at where you want to be in the next 5 years. You can really take your tax refund and save it or invest it instead of blowing it on materialistic things that decrease in value the minute you walk out the store. The TV in the living room is big enough, no need to by a new one. Take that money and start a trust fund for your child.
It’s time to live. I’m not talking about going through a hoe phase or buying a bunch of crap you can’t afford. What I’m saying is, it’s time to practice self-care from the inside-out. Take your power back and stop giving it to people who don’t matter. When it comes to negative people, you can walk away, not answer the phone, or block their number. If folks at the family functions have a history of pissing you off, stay at home. Stop caring and start living for you.
You’d be surprised how many people are doing exactly what they want and don’t care what people think. Create the life you want. You have the option to be content, working somewhere you love, and surrounded by people who genuinely care about you. It’s the truth………you can make changes in yourself and change who’s allowed to enter your space.
Stop apologizing for becoming a better person or someone no one really understands. Many times people don’t want to embrace the new you. They want to box you in and you have to act the way they want you to act. The new you will make many people feel uncomfortable. Oh well, not your problem. Get ready to ride this new journey alone until you meet some people who’re ready to support you or relate to the new you.
