A Room Full of People

What a relief to finally realize it is my decision to like others and their feelings towards me belong to them.  My anxiety has always made entering a room full of people a terrifying experience, but now I can (usually) keep that inward focus at bay.  I need to choose the people who fit into my life instead of waiting for them to approve of me.  I know my story and what I am no longer willing to tolerate.  There is no reason for me to be anxious.

  1. Darling, I know not who you are but we share something special.
    New knowledge.
    Empowering knowledge which releases us from the ‘expectations’ of others. Last year over a few weeks, I learnt, (slowly as I didn’t believe my counsellor 🙈🙄) that I was ok. I was me and my past had shaped that, but that I was responsible for how to chose to be in life from this point onwards.
    I beg you to read a book by Sarah Knight … she has 3 in a series .. but the first is called “The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k”.
    As embarrassed as the title leads you to feel you might be, I assure you Sarah is like a modern day Buddha and her aim to lift the myth of our learned behaviour about that misplaced need to please others…. xx
