1.) You constantly worry about what other people think
When we live our life for others, we suppress our own happiness. Your life is yours and yours alone.
2.) You feel constant anxiety over your future and how it may play out.
Anxiety is the habit of worrying about what we can’t control. Often times it’s a contributing factor of living our lives too far in the future and not enough in the present.
3.) You allow toxic people to take up space in your mind and your life.
Toxic people can and will drain us of our energy. Energy is something we must protect. Don’t be afraid to distance yourself from those who give you bad vibes. Those vibes are protecting you.
4.) You struggle with saying “NO”
Asserting yourself and speaking up is one of the strongest things you can do. Never be afraid to hurt someone’s feelings if it’s not something you are comfortable, or willing to do.
5.) Don’t let a job work you to the point of burnout
Know your limits when it comes to work, communicate with your boss and let them know what you can and can not handle.
6.) You lose yourself as a mother
This one is huge. Parenting is hard but it’s important to maintain your own sense of identity and not get caught up in the hustle and bustle of it all.
7.) You don’t make time for yourself to relax or practice self-care
Again, this one is huge. We live in such a hustle and bustle society, but it’s important to remember to take time to breathe and slow down. Love on yourself because you deserve it.
8.) Don’t get so caught up in making money that you forget to have a life
Money comes and goes, at the end of the day your money isn’t going to be at your death bed, your loved ones will. Those people matter, make time for them. Being a workaholic can have its consequences.
9.) You think you know it all
We are never done learning and growing. Challenge yourself daily to learn new things, opening your mind up to new people and ideas. You just might learn something that will surprise you.
10.) You fear failure
Fear is the biggest thing that stops us from reaching our full potential. If we can overcome it, we’ve overcome the biggest challenge of all, failure.
