In some ways it’s not good to define or label yourself — why be confined to a box someone puts you in based on your interests, how you dress or what music you listen to?

I guess my tribe isn’t a big group that hang out all together, all the time, which is what I pictured my life being like. Instead my tribe is full of individuals, who bring something different to the table. None of them like me and none of them not like me.

You are not obligated to say yes

Keywords: #writersofinstagram #writersoftwitter #liveyourlife #blogger #blog #ontheblog #ontheblogtoday #bloggersgetsocial #bloggerlife #bloggersoftwitter #newblogpost, advice, Blogger, no, relationships and friendships, saying no

The only people who get upset with you having boundaries are the people who were benefiting from it.

[i.e., benefitting from you feeling obligated to say “yes”]

Although it may not seem like it at the time, a lot of our setbacks set us up for success later on

I asked my followers to share instances where rejection actually turned out to be redirection and helped them get to a better place in their lives. And I’m hoping it’ll inspire each person reading this into believing that better days are coming.

Perfection results in avoidance, procrastination, poor time management, process addiction, fitting in instead of belonging, conditional self-worth, relentless management of others’ perceptions, and in general, a lack of joy, creativity, courage, compassion, fulfillment and wholehearted living

How perfectionism keeps us stuck:

  1. It keeps us avoiding and procrastinating: If I can’t do it perfect (and I know I probably can’t) then why should I waste my time doing it at all?
  2. It’s attached to shame with a constant feeling of “Not-Good-Enough-ness”
  3. It keeps us trying, stumbling, self-deprecating, and unfulfilled
  4. It keeps us hustling to manage the unwanted perceptions of others
  5. It’s a creativity killer
