I have been away for a very long time and for that, I apologise. It was all be explained in due time. But I am back with a new blog and video. I hope you enjoy!
Being your own cheerleader is so difficult especially when we live in a world that thrives off our misery. But I am going to give you some hints and tips to help you prosper and stay confident in who God has created you to be.
1 – Write it down!
When you write down who you are, you will involuntarily begin to believe what you have written. In order to process your thoughts, you actually have to think them so whilst you are writing down positivity about who you are, you are reminding yourself about all the great things about you. As I said in my video above, you are great!
2 – Surround yourself with positive people and lose all toxic friends
Be wary of the company you keep.
Bad company corrupts good character – 1 Corinthians 15:33
When you hang around with negative people who always see the worst in you and bring up all of your faults, you will start to do the same for yourself. They also do it in subtle ways such as telling you that you are “Too ambitious” with no rational reasoning just to crush your dreams. And unfortunately, these toxic friends actually come in the form of family. Once you lose the bad company, you will find yourself thinking more positively about yourself. I have lost “friends” when trying so desperately to find myself and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made because I realised I didn’t need those friendships at all.
3 – Be unapologetic!
We Brits apologise for pretty much anything, for walking to close to someone, for sneezing, for our very existence and most of the time, we say sorry for no real reason at all. We need to cut this! The more you begin to say sorry for who God has created you to be, the more you doubt yourself. So be yourself, be confident in who you are. It will be a journey to get there but once you are there, no one can tell you any different.
It is so important to be your own cheerleader because, unfortunately, not everyone around you is really for you. I believe that you will make it. God is here to help you through every step of the way.
Be your own cheerleader!
