"Keep your face always toward the sunshine
and shadows will fall behind you."
It's time to stop allowing people to keep you bound by your past. You have not been same person anymore and have grown and are still growing.
There are too many times that we give way too much space in our minds to people and what they think or feel. It can derail our own thoughts and make us feel like we've made 0 progress.
That stops now. It is time to no longer rent out space in your mind to people that don't care about you, or the time and space you even give them. Occupy every space of your mind with your own faith of who you are. You deserve better and do not need to stay in a situation or mindset that gives nothing back. Let them go. Grow you.
Trust and believe that the moment you decide to change and actually make these steps. Everything will come crashing down to stop your progress, including from some closest to you. They will even go as far as faking their change to take you from yours. You have to understand that some don't want to see your change so that they themselves can remain the same.
Keep in mind that you can also become your own block for change. So, don't stop your progress. Don't allow anyone or anything to stop your progress. Don't allow anyone to cause you to forget who you are and what you are truly worth. Let Go. Grow. Keep Moving. Live. Change your mindset you change your life.
