This week, temptation might get the best of you. But you need to remember, it’s important to think through the short- and long-term consequences of your actions. Don’t make impulsive choices in the moment without asking yourself where things might lead.
This week, reinstate your boundaries with people who are refusing to treat you right. If they cannot respect your wishes, then you should show them the door. Don’t keep giving them chance after chance when they aren’t willing to better themselves. Walk away because teaching them manners isn’t your responsibility.
This week, keep an eye out for red flags. Don’t let someone take advantage of your kindness because not everyone has the same set of morals as you do. Even though it’s great to stay open and optimistic, you need to watch yourself too.
This week, consider tearing down your walls for that special someone. Give them a little more insight into your thoughts and feelings. Even though you’ve been hurt before, you don’t want to stay too closed off. You can place your trust in more people, as long as you vet them first.
This week, be gentle with yourself. Even though you’re a perfectionist who always wants to be the best, you can’t punish yourself when you fall short. You can’t set impossibly high standards for yourself. You need to accept your limitations and your mistakes. There’s always tomorrow to try again.
This week, stay flexible. Your plans might not work out the way you originally thought but that doesn’t mean everything is a disaster. You can still have a wonderful week if you remain open-minded and malleable. Even though it’s hard for a structured person like yourself, try to go with the flow a little more.
This week, don’t be afraid to call it quits. If you aren’t happy with a relationship, a friendship, a hobby, or a job, then it’s okay to walk away. You don’t have to keep at it if it’s making you unhappy, if it’s negatively impacting your mental health. You’re allowed to let go.
This week, keep your heart wide open. Don’t hesitate to tell people how you feel. Give out compliments. Send the first text. Let yourself be vulnerable for once because it could make someone else’s day – and isn’t that worth the effort?
This week, let your heart have some say in your decisions. This doesn’t mean you should completely ignore your head or your gut. It just means you shouldn’t disregard what your heart is telling you is important. Listen closely and you could learn something new about yourself.
This week, be unapologetically yourself. Don’t worry about how others are viewing you. Don’t make decisions that will impress them instead of decisions that feel right for you. You have to put yourself first. Be a little more selfish than usual.
This week, step outside. Take walks around the block. Ride your bike. Visit parks and gardens. Whatever you choose to do, make sure you’re spending some time in nature to make up for all the time you spend staring at a screen. Your body (and mind) will thank you.
This week, stay soft. Even though this world can be cruel, don’t let it harden you. Don’t let it convince you that your personality is too much. The right people will appreciate you exactly the way you are. They wouldn’t want you to change a thing.
