Relationship, Friendship, Work, Lifestyle & More - If It Doesn't Feel Right, Walk Away!
Editors Thought: I Rather Have A Peace of Mind Than Suffer From Anxiety!
Life they say, is a journey. It is also a teacher and more a continuous drama. Some times if not many, we come across things that doesn't work, favour, or blend with our lifestyle. Things that however make our life a leaving nightmare. Relationships, Work, Friends etc . I decided to write this article after reading the devastating story about NecoleBitichie.com, a whopping 6 million dollars worth money making site that decided to END. Isn't this what Necole wanted in the first place?
Necole Kane is the founder of NecoleBitichie.com a celebrity gossip and entertainment news site on the Internet, featuring exclusive interviews, the latest music, red carpet events and up-to-date information on the nation’s hottest urban celebrities, as well as social issues affecting the African-American community. She started from grass to grace, lunched the website in 2008 after unsuccessfully looking for job in Atlanta. In her open letter to her fans, stressed out her worries and why she couldn't carry on. "I began measuring my success not by the amount of people who read my blog, or the money I made, but by the number of people I was able to touch, motivate and inspire". "I also started to realize what purpose was – and I knew to be happy, I had to start living a purpose-driven life. I had to start thinking about what I wanted my legacy to be, and what steps I’d have to take to start living in it"."To many people are not living their dreams because of fear. I DO NOT want to become one of those people.
I had to destroy it, before it destroyed me.
For seven years, I’ve given this platform everything in me. Now, it’s time to refocus that energy into something that I truly believe in".
In this day and age of social media fame. Most people are famous or known by how many followers they have, from main celebs, struggling talents to the plains fun-seeking us. The last thing most people will think of is shutting down their famous blog, website, or social site. Ok this also applies to different parts of our Lives too. Look at these 3 main points;
Relationship: Most relationships doesn't work, they instead cost you headache, worries, fear and anxiety. Get out of there before its too late! If a relationship doesn't make you happy, its is not worth all the worries. Don't wait for change, you will be waiting for a long time and it might never come. Usually in most cases, there are signs every where, and its up to us to either pick it up or ignore it. Most couple knows when a relationship isn't going any where, get out right away and find what works for you or make you happy. Love is a beautiful thing when spent with the right one is priceless.
Most people worry about going back to square one, i advice your rather go back to square one than end the rest of your life in worries or agony.
Work: According to MailOnline, half of us hate our job so much and think we are in the wrong career, of course you are! However, in most cases, hate doesn't mean you can't cope. But when hate means you CAN NOT cope, leave!
If a job gives you so much stress than you can handle, then leave it and look for something else. Most of us worry about not finding something else to do. If you fall in this category while still in the job, keep looking for a new one and remind your self why you need to leave. Most successful people i know, never stopped looking for a better job, the just tell you one day that they got a new job and you wonder, were they looking? where they unhappy?
Entrepreneurs are rising by the year. Most people are avoiding doing the job they hate. They choose to work for them self, thus do something they enjoy, brilliant! However, even as an entrepreneur sometimes you can take your time to build a business and in return it gives you more stress than you can handle. Don't look back, just like the lovely Necole of NecoleBitche.com, Walk away. "If you did it once, you can do it again"! Don't worry about the time and years it took you. I rather start fresh and take it one at a time with a new business than struggle with the stressful one i already build if it can't be fixed.
Friendship: They say choose your friends wisely. People either inspire or drain you. If your friends are bad influence or always get you in trouble. Its time to drop them. Don't worry about having no friends, they impossibilities are lower than the possibilities, its all up to you. You are better off without friends that make you upset, look and talk down or bully you.
Some times the possibility of getting rid of them is impossible, but if they time arises, stand up to them. If you can't stand up to them, move, or stay far away from them. For someone to be a good friend, have to respect, enjoy your company and accept you for who you are.
To conclude my point, life is too short for us to dwell in fear, worry or pain over something we can change. Noting is easy of course, if you are not happy with something in your life, either give it some time. Have a time limit and if the worries continues, do something about it. Thus if it does not feel right, walk away!
Of course these are my thought. What are yours?
