Someone said to me the other day, “don’t get too skinny now that you’re working out.”
Then another person said to me “do you want to become a bodybuilder because you’re working out?” you might be in a season where you are ready to make a small step, you are ready to make a change but you are scared to try something new or to do anything because of the negative talk that comes from other people and sometimes, yourself.
Before I go any further, let me be clear, I work out for myself. I work out because it lets me know that I am strong, I am loved, I am capable, and I am resilient!
Any time you take a leap and do something different, there will always be someone (or yourself) that will doubt if you can do it.
Please understand that those negative feelings are not a reflection of who you are but it is a reflection of your biggest fears.
My biggest fears are: fear of not being loved/accepted; fear of failure; fear of being a burden; & fear of being alone.
We all have fears that will try and keep us in the “rabbit hole”. Trust me, hanging out in a “rabbit hole” isn’t fun, isn’t enjoyable and best and believe it is lonely.
So what fears try to keep you in a “rabbit hole”? Are you going to let those fears dictate how you see yourself and your life?
Ignore the negative talk. Push through. Climb out. Just finish the workout already because trust me you’ll feel better and by doing so tell your fears that they don’t have control anymore.
