Yesterday I let someone suck the joy out of my afternoon. Later I realized how much I let this one person affect my mood, and I was overcome with anger. Letting someone else’s actions take away your accomplishments or progress is ridiculous, but also hard to fight sometimes.
In times like this, I remember that women should and NEED to empower one another. They should support one another to pursue their dreams, accomplish their goals, and reach for the stars, whether that’s in life or fitness. We need to surround ourselves with women who are going to lift us higher, not knock us down! This seems simple since any good friend displays these qualities, but lately more “girls” are competing with each other over nonsense, instead of lifting each other up. That’s the difference between women and “girls”. A women, a good friend will be there to compliment you on your accomplishments, instead of competing with you to surpass you.
If there is someone in your life who drags you down, where every chance they get they steal your thunder, get rid of them right now! They are toxic waste in your life, and will do nothing but continually bring you down to their level. And if every time you do something you think is amazing, and they have nothing positive to say or they refuse to acknowledge your accomplishment, CUT THEM OFF and MOVE ON with your life.
