In reality, most people do not really care for your well-being on a deep and meaningful level. When they take an interest in your engagement, for example, they may well be interested in the color scheme you’ll choose for your wedding or where the proposal took place. Humans are a curious species in every sense of the world. They do strange things, and they are intrigued by the lives of others. This can lull you into a false sense of security and make you believe that they truly care for you and would be willing to help you out in times of need. These are just a few reasons that have the power to make you think and understand that it’s really important to concentrate on yourself. Selfish? Not at all!
Aside from a few close friends and relatives, the majority of people you meet will simply not be around to lend you a listening ear when you get fired or are made redundant, even if they were excited when you landed that job in the first place. The world we live in is super quick and relationships are just superficial. Even the ones you might have with your partner and big love, might not be so perfect. But, don’t worry, it’s normal, the secret is to became the best friend of yourself and start an amazing, sincere and deep relationship with your self. This will make you a better person, a happier person, a wiser person. When you live a life truly on your own terms, you will be able to enjoy sharing good news secure in the knowledge that despite the fact no one much cares, you are achieving your own goals and fulfilling your unique vision of what a good life looks like.
In order to be more confident in your decisions and therefore be strong enough to dismiss what others say, creating a roadmap of where you want go and how you’re going to get there, will bring more stability and less insecurity. By doing this, you will care much less about what other people are doing in comparison, or what they think about you. Create a list of goals, note where you are now in relation to them (with no negative judgement) and write out an action plan for how you can achieve them. You can make a one week plan or a one year plan – whatever you feel comfortable with on any subject – and you’ll start to feel a sense of moving forward. Write out a list of how you can improve each area of your life. Do a little bit at a time for each area and you’ll soon grow more and more confidence in yourself and where your life is heading.
Remember that everything takes time, you are not running and you are not in a hurry! Take it easy and smile on the way.
