If I ever have kids, I’m going to tell them this— go where you are appreciated.
You were born with certain gifts that knowingly or unknowingly, you have been developing since a young age. They were gifts that brought delight to others, such as making people laugh, helping people problem solve, capturing a human emotion through song, communicating through dance, etc. Whatever it is, I’m sure you had “your thing”. The thing that lit you up as well as lit up others. I believe we need to nurture this, hold it dear, and most importantly look for reinforcement in this area.
Over the years, I’ve realized that reinforcement in the direction of your dreams doesn’t just happen. It takes a certain type of person to believe in you unconditionally (and unfortunately, for most of us, that’s only our mothers lol). That’s why it’s so so important who you surround yourself with. If you surround yourself with people that have many limiting beliefs, you will start developing these beliefs and accepting them as true. If you surround yourself with people that are open to possibilities, excited about their life and your life as well, it’s someone to keep around. There’s just no time for competition and jealousy. We all need to be built up so we can rise to greater heights, being the best possible version of ourselves ☆
