Who will you prove wrong?
I’ll admit I almost immediately knew what my answer was but it’s taken me a while to sit down and write it out. And even though it has been a while, I still felt it was important to write down and share here.
Who will I prove wrong? Myself. I will prove myself wrong. For so many reasons and in so many ways.
I feel lucky that the people that surround me in life are so incredibly supportive of me and I think all my close family and friends honestly believe I can do anything I wanted. I often think those who support and surround me have more confidence in me than I have in myself. When I was in art school, there were teachers who I wanted to prove wrong about the critiques they gave me, that’s true but I’m not there anymore and their opinions don’t matter. And while I love that my family and friends support and believe in me, at the end of the day my opinion is the only thing that matters, right?
If I don’t believe in myself, I’ll never accomplish anything. My thoughts often turn to believing that I can’t conquer my depression and anxiety, that they will always for the rest of my life get the better of me. I think about how my blog and my business will never be what I wish it could be. I think about how I will never amount to anything or be as important as I hope to me.
So yes, not only will I prove myself wrong but I need to. More than anything and anyone else, I need to prove my own thoughts wrong and do everything and be the best I can be.
So tell me, who will you prove wrong?
