8 THINGS I LEFT WITH THE OLD ME

img_9420

The old me’s gone. She’s packed her bags and she’s moved to another planet.

There’s a new sheriff in town. (I’ve always wanted to say that!)

Here are 8 things I left with the old me when she upped and left.

  1. The constant worrying about how I looked – does my hair look good? Is my makeup ok? How do I look?
  2. Wondering why not everyone wants to be my friend
  3. Trying too hard to impress people that would probably like me better if I was just myself
  4. The belief that I’ll never be good enough
  5. The belief that I should do things with the majority and not venture off on my own
  6. The need to conform
  7. All that negative energy
  8. The words “can’t” and “never”

I’ve actually never admitted that I ever felt these things to anyone, and only now I’ve let go of them have I admitted to myself how much negativity IΒ possessed.

Honestly, I feel so much happier now I’ve let go of all these things, because they were just like a big black cloud looming over me.

Thanks for reading!Β What’s one thing you’ve let go of and have felt extremely happier since?

  1. So happy for you that you were able to leave these things behind when you moved! I let go of the people who always dragged me down and it’s made life so much more positive! Good luck in keeping up the positive vibes, and lovely post! xxxx

  2. Awesome post! πŸ™‚ I feel like ever since I cut negative people out of my life, I’ve been so much happier. Like a weight was lifted from my shoulders.

    I love your blog by the way! πŸ™‚

    1. Aww that’s lovely to hear, well done on cutting them out, I know it’s not always easy, stay happy without them πŸ˜€ and thank you so much! I’m glad you like it☺️ Xxx

  3. At times we just tend to not see the goodness what is truely around us. As we get older you start to see its better to have one friend then ten, that numbers don’t really count at all. I’m really happy you have found your happy place and you have let go of these things !

    1. Honestly, I think it’s a gradual process. Like, I was always the one that that got treated like crap and was constantly around negativity and it came to a point where I was sick of it and it caused me to build up anger and anger and just so much anger inside me but I realised that I was getting on doing my own thing, too. I was doing my own things and hadn’t told the negative people about my things and I found real joy in them, which is partly when I realised that I didn’t need them, I was doing fine without them. Also, I moved away for university and was away from negative people and was starting to meet people with completely different perspectives of life, people that I didn’t even know existed until I’d met them! The world is a big place and it takes steps to get away from negativity but I promise you you CAN do it and you’ll be a much happier person once you’re away from them. If you need any advice/tips just drop me an email at 1weekmary@gmail.com hope I could help! Xx

    1. Thanks so much Jess, glad you liked it! & loool yess give it a go and let me know what you think πŸ™‚ it’s not always easy but once you’re rid of the people/things that make you feel like crap you’ll be a lot happier in yourself πŸ˜€ thanks for commenting Xx

    1. Took a while to admit it but I’m so glad that I finally did! Yesss it is a big one for most people I think, it’s all a part of growing up I guess, thank you so much! I hope I’m growing up, it’s about time lol! Thanks for commenting Hun Xx

    1. Yessssss, that’s so great to hear! Isn’t it so much better to just be able to do whatever you want and not even care instead of just worrying so much about doing it that you miss the opportunity?! So happy for you Hun & thanks for commenting Xx

  4. I’m going through the same sort of thing at the moment! I’ve realised that I don’t really care how others perceive me as and that I do need to stop worrying over everything. Great post as always! X

    1. That’s honestly so great to hear, you go girl! You carry on doing you and it makes abs nooo difference what they have to say. I know it’s easier said than done sometimes but I know you can get there πŸ˜€ thanks so much for reading & commenting Xx

  5. I agree 100% with number 5. With starting my blog I began to go off and do things on my own but now, three years later I am beyond comfortable with not doing what everyone else is doing. It’s so great to hear when people are proud of the self-improvement they’ve achieved, great job! I love reading posts on people’s journeys to accept themselves and love themselves.

    1. That’s honestly so great to hear, well done you!! More people should be doing what THEY want to do and not what they think they ‘should’ be doing, thanks so much, I really appreciate it and thank you for reading & commenting πŸ˜€ I’m glad you liked it xx

  6. Love your writing tone! This was really fun to read because it felt light-hearted but also really genuine in self-encouragement type of way. Within five minutes I went from clicking a blog link to feeling really happy for a person I’ve never met before and her newfound look on life πŸ™‚

    1. Oh my days, this is one of the nicest things ever! Thank you SOO much I really appreciate you saying that, now you’ve made me more happy because you’re happy for me too so let’s all be happy together lol! πŸ˜‚ thanks so much for commenting I’m really glad you enjoyed it!! Xx

  7. Mary, your such a strong person to of opened up and said what you just did. Many people don’t like to admit their bits they don’t like and want to get rid of. i’d love to get rid of the some negative thoughts I have about my body shape. I will in time I guess…self love and all that πŸ™‚ xxx

    1. Oh my days, that is so nice of you to say thank you so much! And you definitely CAN get rid of the negative thoughts, it’s a process and will take time but if you ever need a little kick of motivation drop me a DM and I’ll definitely help. Thanks for commenting xx
