To be more vulnerable with others 🙂
How helpful will this be for you and your life?
To be outspoken–voice my opinion–instead of keeping everything to myself in social situations.
That is interesting! Have you ever given this a try?
No, not for a long time. When I got my stripes in the Army my CO asked what kind of Seargent I was going to be–my reply was that I didn’t see myself as a leader or a follower. I was more of an observer of life. Needless to say that didn’t go over to well🤔
So what happened next?
I did things my way & then finished my tour
duty and went to school.
Very few times. I find that most people do not want to have deep, meaningful conversations– football, mowing the yard, and the such. So I just nod my head and smile.
Start calling people out on their bullshit (mostly littering, being rude to sales people, playing music too loud after midnight on a weekday,…stuff like that)
In your opinion, how helpful would that be?
To be called out by a quiet person who you’ve never heard talking before, i think they’d remember what they did wrong (throwing gum paper on the sidewalk) and think ‘remember that time when we got called out for littering? Maybe it better to stick to the trash cans’
I’d like to stop building excruciatingly high emotional walls and let more people in otherwise my kids will move out and I’ll be incredibly lonely
That sounds very tough! Do have the same walls when it comes to your kinds?
Absolutely no walls at all when it comes to my kids or my immediate family, my circle is very small, I don’t let many in. Guess it’s what happens when ye get cheated on, it breaks your confidence, makes you overthink what others will think of you and if they would accept you and find you enough for who you are. Again, going back to one of the previous questions, it makes me wonder why people leave if I’m a good person, I treat everyone with respect and no judgement. I’ll tell people my story, I’ll share but I won’t date. I’m too scared to put myself out there again to be discarded.
Speaking my mind
What stops you from doing that?
Worrying what I think will cause problems
Reblogging this to my readers at sister site Timeless Wisdoms
Say what I feel without hurting anyone.
What can help you with that?
I rid of my limiting beliefs
What changes can you do to help you with that?
And started to respond instead of reacting. And understood the idea of feelings and emotions of others and how it is not my responsibility to mind people’s feelings and emotions. 😅

I am perfectly imperfect the way I am, no changes needed here.. 🙂
Great! You must teach us how to get to this level of self-acceptance. 🙂
The answers you seek are already there, in your heart and mind… it is up to you whether you wish to follow or not… 🙂
“Every morning your have two choices: continue to sleep with your dreams, or wake up and chase them.”
I need to learn to say “no” to things I don’t really want to do. I need to start thinking of myself more before I think about others. I agree to a lot of work assignments and other obligations begrudgingly because I feel like it will make other people happy, even if it makes me miserable.
I think this actually is harmful for others in the long term because they don’t learn do to the things themselves and they cannot grow and evolve without learning new things…
Currently in the works: I stopped spending 20 hours a day (kidding/not kidding) coloring or facebooking. I started spending more time with my son trying to be a super extra mom. Switching social media platforms from FB to twitter because somebody needs to cut me off sometimes. LOL. There is a LOT I started to do this year alone to become more fearless and more unapologetically myself. I love me more every!
If you love yourself more, you’re on the right track! Keep going! 😀
