Positivity Week- Day 4
Self doubt is an issue that faces us at some point in our life, whether it be every day or during particular tough times. Sometimes our dreams and ambitions seem so impossible and far away from our reach, but the only thing that’s actually stopping you is yourself. Sure, there are obstacles in the way, like money, or a car, or an abusive family environment. But, in the end, you are the one who makes the calls in your life. You are in control of your surroundings and your happiness. Don’t discourage yourself because doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.
You’re worth it. No, this isn’t a L’Oreal commercial. But just because you don’t have everything you want right at this moment doesn’t mean that you’re not deserving of it. Don’t stress about not having a boyfriend/ girlfriend all throughout high school because there’s someone out there waiting for you just like you’re waiting for them. If someone continually screws you over and brings you down, don’t let them into your life. They don’t deserve you and you’re more capable at this very moment than they ever will be. If you feel lonely, just know that it won’t last forever. It may seem like it does, but things will pick up. Please don’t ever feel like you don’t belong in the world because that’s not true. You’re here for a reason and you’ve made so many positive impacts on people that you don’t even realize yet. You are loved, you are cared for, you are wanted. You deserve to be happy. You are worth it. Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.
Do things that make you feel alive. This could be exercising, going to a concert, or walking along the beach at night- whatever makes you appreciate life. Just get yourself out into the world and open new doors. Don’t sit on your couch and feel sorry for yourself the whole weekend. Once you find what makes you happy, and you go out and make new experiences, you’ll love life and remember how awesome it feels to wear a real smile on your face. If someone treats you with disrespect, remember the people who do appreciate you (yes, there are a ton of people who do) and focus your energy on them. Negativity is just as contagious as positivity, and you don’t want to take a turn for the worse. Self appreciation derives from the time you spend on thinking positively, and once you’ve got that down, then you’ll be more than glad that you are alive.
How Joey's helped
Joey has definitely helped me attain a much more positive outlook on life. He makes me feel loved and important because, well, I think it’s obvious how much he loves his psychopaths. He’s always giving back to us and takes time to interact with us on tumblr/twitter/youtube and goes the extra mile to make us feel special. He’s made so many advice videos to help us out and make us feel like we’re not alone, which takes a lot of courage since the whole world can watch him open up about sensitive issues. I know he’s made so many people feel better about themselves and I love love love seeing psychopaths freak out when Joey likes/ reblogs one of their posts.
Just remember that you’re worth it, and if anyone tries to bring you down, then that means they’re already below you. :)
