How I have Changed in the Past Two Years
Two years ago today was October 4, 2009
I was an advocate working with victims of Domestic Violence back then and today I am working in Data Entry. There has been the change in where I lived, who I lived with, but as far as personal changes, I would say there are some.
I am a little more comfortable with the person I am. I have gained a new confidence being single and like the way that I look. I know I am heavy, but there is something to be said for being comfortable in the clothes I wear and the with my appearance.
My assertiveness skills have been fine tuned and I am much better about not letting people walk all over me. I have learned a proper way of communicating my thoughts with people and if they do not accept my wishes then I accept that they do not have to be my friend. I am tired of thinking people are going to change. I suppose that is one of the changes that I am going through still... and that is caring less about wanting people to like me.
I do like friends and love my family, but not everyone is meant to be a friend. It is a hard lesson to learn, at least is what for me. I wanted everyone to like me, but it was pulling me in to many directions.
Are you a people pleaser? Were you and decided it was better to be happier yourself? What is one big change you see in yourself over the past 2 years?
