I think. A lot. And in my head I have constant narratives running, but never really going anywhere. When I thought about how to channel those narratives, I decided on a blog.But I'm nervous. Nervous that no-one is interested, but more nervous of being judged. I don't know why but this is one of my greatest fears.I have always worried too much about what other people think of me, if I'm not the kind of person that they want me to be, or if they don't like the person that I am. Does anyone else feel like that? It is quite a crippling outlook and I want to do something about it.I started Slimming World and found that some of the people I met at the group were sending me supportive messages on facebook. And I was horrified. Horrified that other people I knew would see that I was doing Slimming World, therefore realise I had gained a lot of weight since my school / university / early career days. And that they would judge me for it.I removed the messages off my wall, at the time hoping no-one would see them. Now, I can't believe that I did that. Someone was genuinely caring about me, and I cared more about what other people thought. People, I might add, who don't matter. As the old saying says; 'Those that matter don't mind, and those that mind don't matter.'So I need to put that into action. Be myself. My whole self - not filtering out parts so as to manage other people's opinions of me. It’s a challenge, particularly in this age of perfection, filters on photos, check-ins in glamorous places and the projected image of oneself. But a challenge I'm ready to take on.So this year, 2016, I'm not only taking on the challenge of blogging, but also of being myself and not worrying what other people think of me.
