Why Do People Discourage Other People?

Recommended Posts

I'm sending you all my support virtually.  Don't let anyone make you feel like you  have to play small in life.  You deserve to shine and outshine those around you.  It sounds like the people who are making those comments feel threated by you and can't handle seeing you transform.  Honestly, keep going.  reach your goals. 

 

If they can't handle it, they can move on.  this is your time to shine! :)

There's always going to be those people that are insecure with themselves so they cut you down to make themselves feel better. I've gotten the same response. I've been unhappy with how my body looks.. I won't lie. Since meeting my FI I actually put on more weight than I am happy with and I've been trying to lose weight since the engagement (knowing a wedding was on the horizon). One of my closest friends actually said something along the lines of "You can only lose so much weight.. you can't make your bones smaller". This actually offended me so much. I don't understand why people can't just be supportive..

I can't believe the things some people say.  Weddings really bring out the best and worst of people. 

 

I'm sending this little quote below because I found it very helpful to focus on me for my wedding and focus on my weightloss and focus on my happiness and to not worry if it is making someone else uncomfortable because maybe they feel some insecurities about their own issues.

 

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be?... 

 

Playing small does not serve the world.  There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.  We are all meant to shine, as children do...

 

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."  - Marianne Williamson

 

I just love this quote~  xoxo
