Pete Bellis

1. You start to believe in yourself and in your capability to accomplish whatever you put your mind to.

2. You filter your relationships according to who respects you and who values you more and you walk away from those who don’t.

3. You feel much more confident in your everyday interactions with people. You’re no longer intimidated by people or what they do.

4. You stop comparing yourself to others because you believe that you have your own journey and that’s exactly what you should focus on.

5. You start setting new boundaries with people who got used to humiliating you or treating you in an unfavorable manner.

6. You feel motivated to work on yourself more instead of seeking validation from others.

7. Challenges don’t scare you anymore because you believe that you’ll always find a way to overcome them.

8. You start loving your decisions and you don’t let the naysayers bring you down or make you doubt yourself.

9. You stop caring about what others will think because you’re simply sure of what you’re doing and who you are.

10. It’s harder for people to bring you down because you learned to always listen to your gut and follow your own voice.

11. You learn to stand up for yourself and your ideas instead of letting people belittle them.

12. You reject anyone who doesn’t treat you with respect or anyone trying to play you.

13. You start attracting things that are right for you because the universe is aligned with your new positive and self-loving energy.

14. You don’t fear loneliness anymore because you don’t mind being by yourself and learning more about what you love and who you are because there’s still so much more to learn.

15. Finally, you no longer question if you’re good enough for that job or that person or that kind of life because you know you are and it’s only a matter of time before you get what you’ve been wishing for. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
