It's not about you.

Updated: Jul 23, 2018


Warning: Being super real with you guys... This is something I have struggled with for a very long time, and something I still struggle with occasionally.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When someone that you care about and are close with doesn't seem to celebrate your wins with you, it totally stings.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It's been a major struggle of mine for the past few years, but after countless incidents and many hurt feelings I've been able to shift my perspective on these situations...

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Here's what I've learned: It's not about me.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The reason they don't cheer me on isn't because they secretly hate me or want to see me fail, it's because a win for someone else feels like a loss to them. It doesn't make sense but it's true. If there's an area of your life that you feel like you're lacking in and someone else is succeeding, their success puts a spotlight on your lack. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When someone’s reaction to your achievement is hurtful just remember, ITS NOT ABOUT YOU.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Hurt people HURT people. The REAL happy people don't try to bring others down, they try to lift them up. So if you're not getting the response you were hoping when you have a win, don't take it personal. How they react to your wins is a direct reflection of their own happiness.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Don't give those negative reactions the time of day. Keep your eye on the prize. You're not doing this for them anyways

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Good luck on whatever it is you are striving for. You can do it
