Surround Yourself with Cheerleaders

Q: Who supports you? Who do you turn to that helps you figure out what's going on in your life? We all need several levels of support. We need people higher up than us who can serve as mentors, we need people who will love us unconditionally, be happy for our successes. We need people we can talk to and share how we feel. You want to surround yourself with a solid support system. Sometimes your support system will change, it's dynamic. Don't fret if someone comes into your life and then leaves. Just replace that relationship with another one. Always be building new relationships that will fill your needs. No one person can do everything. Don't hang onto a relationship that is no longer doing good for you. Learn to release those people in your life who drag you down, make you feel bad or rain on your dreams. Be on the lookout for your cheerleaders, your supporters, and be honest with them. Practice being vulnerable. Practice asking for favors. Practice setting boundaries. Practice listening. Practice intimacy. We can't fulfill our greatness without people around us. Finding your cheerleaders is a way of loving yourself. It's give and take--don't forget to give back to those who are there for you. Don't give up if you mess up. Don't get down on yourself if you're low on cheerleaders, pick yourself up and try, try again until you get it right. One day, you will. ♥
