One of my favourite quotes - my husband looks at me like I’m a complete wierdo when I love it every time I hear it!
“What the hell has this got to do with WellbeingFIT?” I hear you ask.
PUTTING YOURSELF OUT THERE. That’s where I’m going with this. Being yourself. Actively pursuing your passions and hobbies. No hiding. No molding yourself to expectations or status quo.
What does this boil down to? Authenticity. Being your authentic self. And feeling happy and comfortable with that. Because you are enough - I guarantee it .
Allowing yourself to be kept in a corner, for the sake of appearances is not conducive with good mental health.
I put myself out there this morning. With a brand new class, in a new venue, with people I’ve never met before - all expecting me to produce the goods! It isn’t easy to get over the fear of pursuing your ambitions. Pushing ahead when that voice in the back of your mind says “what if you fail?”.
I get why that voice/fear is there. It’s to keep us safe. It can also be left over from unhealthy relationships or from something else that knocked your confidence.
However, I urge you to sometimes take that voice with a pinch of salt. Understand why it’s there. And do whatever it is that you have been considering for a long time. That business idea. That hobby. That relationship. That campaign. Whatever it is that your gut tells you you want to do - don’t let the idea of putting yourself out there stop you. Don’t stay in the corner, all quiet and well-behaved. Step out of it and be YOU!
And even though I love this quote - no one needs a Johnny to get them out of a corner. You’ve got this .
Once you begin putting yourself out there more - that fearful feeling will quiet down. Your mind will get used to challenging itself - and you will eventually love it. #putyourselfoutthere #confidence #fear #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #nobodyputsbabyinacorner #exerciseformentalhealth #exerciseforanxiety #exercisefordepression #mentalhealthpt #thisgirlcan #selfesteem #owningit #authentic #authenticself
