Here’s Why I’ve Decided It’s Time To Change Myself

I am changing, but not for the reasons you would think. You see, I’m not changing for society or because someone thinks I need to. I’ve just come to the decision that I am done changing who I am to please someone else.

Gone are the days of constantly worrying about what everyone else thinks. The days of second guessing all of my choices because others wouldn’t understand.

So when it comes time for changing I’ll be doing it for me.

I am changing to be a better version of me. Because I deserve to become the best version of myself for myself.

I am changing how I spend my time. No longer will I spend days doing things that don’t make me happy.

It’s time for me to realize that I’m always kind to others while being so quick to put myself down.

I wouldn’t allow others to say those things to me, so why do I let myself?

It’s time to give myself the compliments I generally reserve for others.

When I look in the mirror, it’s time I stop scowling at the things I see as imperfections. It’s time to truly learn to love the body I’m in, because I am beautiful no matter what anyone else says.

I’m changing in a way that lets the world know that I am enough.

I’m a strong, intelligent, kind, and giving woman, but more importantly, I am me.

I’m changing the way I put myself last. If I can’t start putting myself first, I will not only show others it’s okay to do the same, but I’ll never move forward.

I’m changing my relationships with others. My time and energy are way more valuable than I let on.

No longer do I over exert myself to those who wouldn’t show me the same courtesy. I’m no longer holding the title of the people pleaser or the push over.

I’m still going to be loyal and a wonderful friend and family member but not to the point where I’m burnt out. Like a flame I’m no good if I’m dimly lit.

I’m changing my attitude on life.

Which includes changing my outlook on the future. It’s open and full of possibilities.

I’m changing.

It’s scary and exciting at the same time.

It won’t be easy. Change takes time. If it isn’t uncomfortable, then it isn’t worth it.

I owe it to myself.

I finally realize I am worth it.

So I am changing. TC mark
