Day 11 - PROMOTE Journal Prompt - What stands in your way of reaching out to others?
Tuesday, May 23, 2017
As you know, I’m all about preparing yourself for moving forward, and you can see a theme here. I like to ask you what is in your way. Because I want you to bring your awareness to your obstacles. I want you to analyze what’s in front of you, so you do something different than what you have been doing.
Because that is what change is all about. Doing something different so that you get the results you want: CHANGE and moving towards THRIVING. Right?
I want you to start thinking about your relationships and the people that are closest to you. Free-write about your relationships with them and what they are like. Are they people you trust to be vulnerable with and talk with about your struggles?
What experiences have you had in the past that have caused you to close yourself off to others? Deep dive into these experiences. What feelings are you holding on to? How are things different now? Push yourself to examine these past experiences that stand in your way of reaching out to others now, in your present.
Moving forward getting to this prompt its getting clearer and clearer to the point where I can see the goal in sight. Seeing the obstacles then getting to the point where I can see it within myself that I can solve the problems. In my case, it is self-caused and resent meant for the things that I have already done. From experience the ones “closest” to you are usually the first to let you down. My older brother is the prime example, he showed me first hand. He is like me well I’m younger so I’m like him, I learned from his lessons and try to imitate when he does good. My baby sister is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet and she has a good heart and is one of the few that will honestly do anything for me. Of course, my mother is the same, my middle and older sister are both realist and they will do what they feel is right. I give everyone I meet a fair chance unlike others I give you trust, it’s up to you to lose it. The fact is when you lose it its gone forever. I don’t give people second chances. In the world people give chances which leads to the using of people. That is where I cut people off. I hold on to the feelings of using people, storytelling, untrustworthy. I just want loyalty when it comes to new people.
