Your opinion sucks
I know you want something…
….and I’m not talking about the new IPhone or a new pair of Nikes. I’m talking about a dream, a goal, something in the back of your mind that you can’t stop thinking about. For me it was my body. I wanted to transform. No in fact I didn’t “want” to transform I NEEDED to transform. Now I know what you’re thinking…but you’re wrong. I didn’t need it for anyone else, I needed it for myself. For my confidence, my happiness, and my stress level.
So what did I do? I went for it…duh. I asked all my friends for recommendations on trainers, gyms, clothes, shoes, you name it I asked about it. I found a trainer, an amazing one. Stuck with the program…blah blah blah…..
Unfortunately this article is not about my #transformationtuesday story, it is however about people and how shitty their opinions are sometimes.
Working in a shop full of very honest men, who most of the time don’t have a filter when they speak to anyone, I’ve learned to have broad shoulders and to let shit slide. Some days though I wanted them to tell me I was doing well, that they noticed the difference in me, in my face, in my body, anything really. Support. I wanted some fucking support. (They are good guys, don’t get it twisted, they are just opinionated)
I would show them pictures of my heroes, (Dana Lynn Bailey, Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, Kristina Moser, and Kelsey Kiel to name a few) and all I got back was negativity…
“So you want to look like a man?”
“She doesn’t even have curves.”
I didn’t ask them to rate the women, or if they cared what I looked like. All I fucking wanted was a simple, “you’re kicking ass” or “you’re doing great, you’ll make it there, keep it up.” It’s not hard.
Now, they are entitled to their own opinions, but it’s not hard to sometimes keep those opinions to yourself and be a decent human being. Also if you don’t have anything positive to say when someone is driving towards a major goal, shut the fuck up. ☺️
So if you are currently going after something you want, or even NEED in life. Keep moving forward. Even if you only make it an inch closer a day, keep taking those baby steps forward.
Sorry for the rant….
