4. Sometimes others are insecure

Sometimes when people don’t support what you’re doing, it may be more about them than you.

It could be plain ignorance or even jealousy, but some people tend to attack things that are new to them.

So again, don’t take their words to heart. If their criticism isn’t constructive in any way, they may be discouraging you because of their own fears and insecurities.

7. You can’t please everyone in life.

If you try to please everyone, it’s going to be next to impossible. So don’t bother. Keep your focus on what you want to do and why.

In an ideal world, we could constantly surround ourselves with positivity. We can’t do that, but we can work on ourselves so that we stay committed and positive.

6. You can do this without their support.

It’s natural to want support and encouragement from the people around you, but it is possible to do what you want to do without it.

Just think of how many successful, inspiring people took the road less traveled.

You’re a very powerful being, just by yourself. Believe in that, don’t give up, and you’ll go a long way, whichever road you take.

3. Others may not fully understand.

People who don’t support you and discourage you may not actually be bad people who intentionally want to destroy your dreams.

Sometimes they just don’t understand why you do what you do, so they voice out their concerns, which may make them seem dissenting.

If anything, since they don’t fully understand, I don’t see why it’s something to be upset over.

Nightmare vs night terrors- know the difference

When it comes to comparing night terrors and nightmares, you might assume that they’re both bad dreams of varying intensities. But night terrors AKA sleep terrors are more than just super-intense nightmares . These are actually two separate sleep conditions with some major differences.

Unlike nightmares, night terrors are considered a parasomnia , a type of disorder marked by abnormal occurrences during sleep. These episodes involve sudden bouts of intense fear, screaming, and thrashing around while you’re asleep. Night terrors are more common in people with mood or anxiety disorders or PTSD.

3 steps in getting over Imposter Syndrome!

3 steps in getting over Imposter Syndrome!

It won't be easy, but will be worth it!

  1. Recognize unhealthy perfectionism: Signs are: Being extremely fearful of failure and criticism, constantly worried about making mistakes or disappointing people, or tending to brood over past mistakes. Slowly, work to reduce these.
  2. Realistically assess yourself: We have areas where we're quite smart and areas where we're not so smart. Write down the areas in which you're good, and ones in which work is needed.
  3. Express out: Talking to other people about their struggles can help prove that other people aren't perfect, and they too do make mistakes.

Running Pace

Your running pace is usually determined by how fast you run 1 mile, on average. To determine your best running pace:

  • Go to a nearby track.
  • Warm up for at least 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Time yourself and run 1 mile. Go at a pace where you push yourself, but don’t run all out.

You can also do this on any flat running trail or path.

Use your mile time as a goal for training. Every few weeks, go back to the track and time your mile pace again as a way to track your progress.
