I Don’t Need This

Posted on Apr 21, 2014

“I don’t need this.” Have you ever thad that thought? Maybe it’s about some stress, some friend, some guilty pleasure, or heck, just some bad decision making. You get to a point where you say, “I don’t need this.”

Have you ever felt that way about a friend? Where you knew they weren’t worth the trouble, but you stayed friends with them anyways? Or maybe they were worth the trouble, but you and to push through some tough times, and many times throughout you said to yourself, “I don’t need this.”

I think that’s always a time to re-evaluate what that is. Some things we need to let go of; some things you can’t let go of, but you have to learn how to deal with them when they get difficult.

This blog is about fear, it’s about addiction, it’s about tough friendships, and it’s about fighting through to the other side even when you said to yourself, “this person is not worth it.”

Are they worth it? Are YOU worth it?

The answer of course is yes. They/you/the fight is always worth it; whether it’s for you or them or for anything/one else.

The struggle is real; but that doesn’t mean you have to do it alone.

I think it’s a really good idea to look at your life every once in a while from a fresh perspective; the one that often gets lost in the busyness. You start to forget why you’re even busy in the first place..

What are you trying to do? Who are you trying to be? Are the things you’re doing now helping that situation; are you getting closer to what you want to do with what’s taking up your time?

That’s the key one. Are the things taking up your time really benefiting who you want to be? If I was a baseball player but I spend two days a week playing croquet (no matter how awesome that may be), I lose two days of time that could be promoted towards baseball or resting until it’s time for more baseball. Don’t look at your life a a list of accomplishments that you never really set out to do in the first place.

Enjoy who you are; be who you are; fill your time with things that grow who you are and who you want to be.

It’s never worth living a life that someone else wants you to live. Take a day off, look at your schedule, and see what you can move/change to allow you to be more of who you are/want to be. I promise it’ll be worth it.
