Believe in Yourself {The Girl Between The Lines}

Ohhhh meeep.. This week is the last week of The Girl Between The Lines link-up. I had fun these past 14 weeks writing and getting to know other bloggers and digging deep within me. Hayley and Lauren have been amazing hosts, and I hope that sometime in the future, they bring it back. Please.

This week: Tell us a lesson you wish you had learned earlier in life.

One of the most important things that I've learned and wished I my younger self would've followed is to Believe in Yourself. When I was in high school I think I gave in to pressure at home and at school, that I began to doubt myself and what I was capable of doing. 

Of course, I didn't know how to bring it back and believe in myself so it carried over to college. I wasn't the best me back then, and I think it had to do with the fact that I wasn't doing things for me, but for my family and for my friends. 

Now that I'm out of school and back home, I'm still dealing with that doubtfulness. Is this the right path? Should I be doing something else? Am I truly happy? What is my next step? I should be doing more.

But I'm learning to believe in myself. Listening to what my gut is telling me. Following the dreams that I've made for myself, even if its completely different than what I'm doing now.  

Just like this quote says, if you believe in that  thing inside you, you will overcome any obstacle life puts ahead of you. You are your biggest fan, or at least you need to be. If you don't believe in yourself, then who will.  This what  I need to remember, whenever I feel like I'm failing
What is a lesson you wished you learned or followed earlier in life?

  1. I love this. It's true, if you don't believe in yourself who will?
    I also always believed if you don't love yourself, how can you love anybody else?
    I wish I would've learned to believe in myself when I was younger. Maybe even a tad more about how much smoking cigarettes sucks! I think I was curious what addiction felt like. Shit, I was addicted to chocolate and coffee and it just flew over my head haha.
    I love reading your posts to this link-up. c:


  2. Love love this! I wish I would have told myself back then to be more confident. I was so wrapped up in doing everything everyone did. I wish I could have stayed home more, read more, and maybe life would be different. Thank you for sharing :)

  3. The times that I have a hard time believing in myself, I have awesome family and friends pushing me through. I think a lot of us have been at a point in our lives in which we were not our best self. The great news is that, there's always tomorrow. We can always start today, and move forward.

    The lesson I wish I learned earlier in my life is that not everyone has to like me. If they don't, it won't be the end of the world. I hope you're doing okay, Adri! :)

  4. So very true. I wish I'd learned sort of the same thing. But I think that's the joy of growing up.

  5. yes i think we have to be our biggest fan, believer, and lover. :)
    lol.. when we were younger we ran with the wind without even knowing if it was taking us in the right way or the bad. but we learn because of it. :)

  6. right.. i feel the same way.. i wish i had more confidence back then, and life would be so different..
    but we learn through life and the experiences we've been through shape us. which is always fun. :)

  7. Thats is so true Carla. There is always tomorrow, a fresh start. And yes I'm grateful for my family and friends too, for believing in me when even i didn't.

    yes thats another good lesson. Not everyone is going to like you and you are not going to like everyone, and its perfectly okay.

    Thanks for stopping by, hun!! :)

  8. i agree... we learn so many things as we get older :)

  9. Yea you should always believe in yourself and set dreams. Also go with your heart and gut and they wont lead you wrong. But have faith and trust in God and he will put you where you need to be. He's always there and in control.

  10. Such a great message. It's def something that I still struggle with for sure.
