Stop Justifying Yourself
Newsflash – it’s time to stop justifying yourself! I’ve addressed this topic before in this post by sharing that if it’s not a hell yes, it’s a hell no. This time, I want to go even deeper when it comes to justifying something. If you have to justify – staying in a job, a relationship, meeting up with someone, the answer is no. You need to let it go.
It’s time to let it go
I’ve found myself doing this lately – and guess what?! It’s ok to change your mind. If you wanted to do something previously and it no longer aligns (hanging out with someone, a relationship, friendship or job) it’s time to let it go. I love the phrase – “Stop shoulding all over yourself”.
You get to create your reality. If you feel obligated, that’s you putting pressure on you. If you are settling in a job, a relationship or a friendship because parts of it are good, let it go. When you let things go that aren’t in total alignment with you, you allow that empty space to be filled with what is.
Create space for something more
I share this in my book, Take the Leap, I justified staying in corporate for years. For years I was miserable and going through life’s motions. When I finally had enough and I gave my notice, the day after I was given a six-figure payout. That’s not luck or a coincidence! I let go of something (a job) that wasn’t in alignment with my passion or purpose and created space for something more.
Now, it’s your turn! If you find yourself justifying ANYTHING, let it go. Not that you need permission but here it is – stop justifying yourself.
