Cheerleader

I pray that one day I have a person in my life who lifts me up and helps me feel like I can do anything I set my mind to. I am (sometimes) capable of being my own cheerleader but when I hear about couples, friends, and family members who have that kind of pure, unadulterated support for each other — no seeds of doubt planted, no jealousy, no naysaying, no secret sabotage — I feel kinda wistful for what could have been if someone close to me had extended that encouragement to help me believe in myself. Of course if I find this kind of support one day I would want to send the same uplifting vibes right back at this person or people to help propel them to their goals. If you’re reading this and what I say lands with you, please consider listening with an open heart when people share their dreams with you and sending them encouragement through both your words and your energy. Thank you for reading and take good care of yourselves this fall.

Can make your dreams come true, not someone else’s encouragement. Get focused and go get it. People will be impressed after you went after your our goals and prove YOU alone had did it.

Basically none of my family, not parents, siblings, cousins, aunts or uncles, have ever expressed any cheerleading for anything that I’ve done. Friends, same thing. So of the people closest to me have never encouraged me, who is left? It’s just me pushing myself. Same with my husband who has had crappy family dynamics to deal with. No one except 1 person ever gave him encouragement. My only feedback OP is that sometimes you have to dig deep inside you and provide your own fuel to your fire. It’s the only reliable way.
