—— Her WIN does not mean that you LOSE. Just clap for her. You’re not even running the same race.
I was bullied in middle school.
But honestly, I don’t remember a thing.
What I do know, is I became the bully.
I clearly projected all the heartache I had from my personal experiences on all other girls I knew. I was the mean girl. And looking back, I obviously hate that.
I was my own worst enemy.
Walking & talking like I owned the place, when in reality I would go home and cry because my friendships were weak, I wasn’t ever invited out on the weekends, and I could never live up to their lifestyle expectations.
Finally, in college, I settled for “boys make better friends — they’re less drama” and basically ended up in situations I knew better than being in. I followed the crowd to look good and feel good about myself for the 2.5 seconds I thought it mattered.
But in the end, those “friends” are long gone, and who I’m stuck with is me.
Coaching changed everything when I was introduced to countless genuine women all over the country that I could relate to, someway, somehow. Instead of tearing each other down, we focus on building each other up. We adjust the other’s crown when it falls. And we shine our light just a little brighter when the other needs a pickmeup.
You don’t have to be the mean girl.
You don’t have to overcompensate.
All you have to do is be YOU.
The rest of the world will fall in line.
They’ll love you for YOU, flaws & all.
And if they don’t, let them go sis.
No friend is worth keeping around if they make you feel trapped in a cage. You need a circle of women that clap for you when you win, pick you up when you lose & are there to push your car when you’re on E.
Run your race.
Find your people.
Love them hard. - 39 minutes ago
