Let This Be The Year You Finally Lose What’s Not Good For You

Let this be the year you finally lose what’s weighing you down. The heavy baggage you’re constantly carrying. The guilt you feel about things that have passed and mistakes you cannot undo. The sadness you hold inside your heart because of past disappointments or heartbreak or pain. The shame you feel about your own failures or your unfavorable choices. Let this be the year you finally stop spinning in the same vicious cycle you created for yourself.

Let this be the year you finally learn to fall in love with yourself again. Erase the sour words that are stuck inside your head, the ones that broke your heart, the ones that triggered your insecurities and the ones that made you feel unworthy or unloved. Detach from the people who made you feel like you’re too much to handle or too hard to love. The people who gave up on you. The people who failed to stand by you when you needed them and the people who abandoned you when you asked for a hand to hold. Let this be the year you erase them from your memories and your life because they’re nothing but scribbles.

Let this be the year you finally stop belittling yourself to make others feel better or because you’re too afraid of what people may think. Let this be the year you get what you want without compromising your beliefs, your standards or your values. Let this be the year you toot your own horn and clap for yourself if no one else is clapping for you. Let this be the year you fight for your dreams and the life you want.

Let this be the year you overcome your fears and your failures. Let this be the year you stop playing the victim and become a winner. Let this be the year of winning back yourself, your success, your rights, your pride and your self-worth. Let this be the year you build yourself up without letting others break you.

Let this be the year you finally lose what’s not right for you. What doesn’t align with your energy, what doesn’t feed your soul and what doesn’t make you feel good about yourself. Let this be the year you finally stop settling for less or accepting what you don’t tolerate. Let this be the year you stand up to people who disrespect you or hurt you. Let this year be known as the year of your comeback. The year of rising above everything that sucked the life out of you. Let this be the year of major change, transformations, healing and blessings. Let this be the year you lose what’s not good for you and go after what’s best for you instead.
