8 powerful reasons to always believe in yourself

8 reasons to believe in yourself

We all have self-doubt from time to time and it is normal. After having a job rejection which you really wanted to get, after a breakup in what you put your whole soul and body, after failing an exam for which you studied hours and hours – you name it – it is common to feel a bit low. Of course, you had high hopes and things didn’t work out as you wanted to. Give yourself time to be emotional but then step up again and believe that next time it will happen!

Why is important to believe in yourself?

You are the one who manages your life. It is never luck, never fate (okay, maybe sometimes we can call it), never up to someone else. It is always you.

1. You are the one who pushes yourself to go forward – after a rough patch, you need the energy to leave any failure and negativity behind yourself, try again and do it better.

2. Believing yourself gives you confidence – you can do it, you are worth it, you will reach any success that you have in mind. Never give up after the first try.

3. You know what your goal is, – what you are capable of and what your lack of skills to reach it is. Knowing yourself helps you to figure out the next step which brings you closer to your goal.

4. You can more likely to ignore jealous people negativity and destroying opinion, if you have a strong vision and belief – there is always someone who is afraid to take an opportunity what you are going to and they try to stop you just because they don’t have the courage to live their life.

5. It definitely makes you stronger – you learn how to get through difficult situations, you know you are able to pick yourself up (as you did it before) and you can wipe off any negative thoughts you have and give your 100% again to do it.

6. You can motivate yourself – you don’t need to wait for someone to push you. You will be your own support who is always available.

7. You can adapt to a new situation – or circumstances because you are not afraid of any changes.

8. Your positive attitude will help you to succeed – when you believe in you can do anything even after failing it, it will push you to try until you reach your success.  

You have the power of belief. It always starts with you, with a positive mindset, no matter how many times you need to try it. If you want it, you can reach it. 

How to set your boundaries

How to set your boundaries

Have you ever said yes to do something but all of your bones were against it? Have you ever agreed to something just because you don’t want to say no to someone?

If these have happened to you already then time to set up your boundaries.

What is the boundary? It is an imaginary line, a feeling, a limit – you name it – that you don’t let others step over. Everybody knows what their boundaries are. You feel it, you just don’t want to confront others when you don’t keep them. You are afraid to be too delicate, too bossy, too needy. Continue reading

Why talking about our problems helps so much?

Why talking about our problems helps so much?

Why talking about our problems help so much

Headset on, get a glass of wine and be ready for gossip!

This is how I prepare myself for a long phone conversation with my friends during a pandemic when socializing is not acceptable. Or with a friend who lives a hundred miles away, and unfortunately, I have a lot of them far from me.

I love sharing exciting news, happy moments, or even sad feelings or troubles with my besties and of course, I love to hear what is going on with them as well!

Have you ever felt relieved after a chat with your friends? Have you ever found a solution after talking to someone about your problem, even the other didn`t give you any answers?

Talking about your feelings definitely has their benefits. Sometimes you just need someone to listen and other times you feel better after complaining to others. You might don’t even need advice, talking through problems give you a solution as well. Once you have processed your difficulties and get it out of your mind, it helps to let it go or come up with a “how-to-deal-with-it” plan. It reduces stress and helps you to ease your heavy thoughts. That`s why talking is important and I love having great friends to practice it. 

How can you get out of your comfort zone?

How to get out of your comfort zone

Same flat, same job, same friends, same supermarket to go. How convenient is it?! It definitely is.

I used to be terrified of new situations, I was not comfortable to extend my friend’s circle or just speak in front of a group. I am still not a fan of being in the center of anything, but I am confident enough to be the person who steps up when there is a need. Continue reading

What really means to have a supportive partner

 

Relationship is not easy. Never. It doesn’t matter that you are at the beginning of it and you see your partner through a pink bubble, or you are about to start your 10, 20 or 30 years together.

None of us is perfect. We are all having mistakes and annoying habits or hobbies that our better half doesn’t like.

Probably, we all have one of these questions during any stage of the relationship: where is it going? Was it a right choice? Should I move on? Is he or she a right match? Can this be better? Can we go through this? Any many more… Continue reading

Is it good to have high standards?

Is it good to have high standards

I love having high standards because it pushes me to keep going, do it better and don’t give up. And even my pride doesn’t let me accept low standards of performance.

I hate having high standards because I always want everything to be perfect and I feel less when something is not going as great as I expected.

I also hate having high standards because others clumsiness or laziness bothers me or even make me angry. Somehow, I just don’t understand why other people don’t want to do their best. Why they don’t want to make the most out of themselves? Continue reading

Stop overthinking

stop overthinking

I used to have this unpleasant habit of overthinking everything. But really – everything. When things went well, I was afraid that it would be ruined. When things went wrong, I was kept thinking about it and made the situation even worst in my mind.

I am much better now but I still can make such a mess in my head by myself.

One of my friends back on the horse as she started dating again after a long period. Guess what? She is already overthinking it. I totally understand her, I have been there and so many times I feel grateful that I don’t have to go through these stages of dating having my other half. Continue reading

When are we getting back our freedom?

getting back our freedom

When I was a kid, I used to read the description of star signs and was always excited when something great was written to me. Growing up, I left these columns behind me but if one thing is true, being an Aquarius, I cannot stand any limitation of my freedom. You can imagine how lockdown made me crazy then.

Now, having more normality in our life again, there are only a couple of things that is still not allowed to do, but there are so many restrictions which is more or less a limitation of our freedom – still. Continue reading

Time of self-reflection

self-reflection

They say until situations are happening again and again, you still need to learn something from it. The tricky part is that you don’t know what it could be!

It can be a colleague who you have a fight with all times but then changing your job, you find yourself in the same shoes. So, what you need to learn? It could be more empathy towards different personalities or more understanding of other beliefs and working style. Continue reading
