Two Years Ago: 30 Day Challenge - Day 22

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?
