According to the internet, today is National Get Over It Day which was created by Jeff Goldblatt in 2005 after having trouble getting over an ex-girlfriend, presumably his friends’ told him to get over it or something familiar. While I don’t like other people telling me to get over something – I’ll take my own time thanks – I think the idea of letting things go is quite positive. A lot of us worry about things too much and let things eat into our minds’ which is why letting go of an anxiety or worry can be so refreshing. Here are some things I’ll be trying to tell myself:
Get over the fact that you’ll never be super skinny
Even when I lost a lot of weight a few years’ back and I was healthy and happy I was never super skinny, yet whenever I think about where I want to be I think about being skinny. I need to get over the fact that I’ll never be super skinny or a size 8, I’m just too well built for that. I do want to lose weight and quite a bit but as long as I am happy with the way I look screw it if I’m not skinny.
Get over the fact that I’m never going to be confident
I’ve tried my whole life to be confident and even put myself in situations where I have to be such as speed dating but I need to get over the fact that I’ll never be hugely confident. I’ll never go up to a random stranger and talk to them, I’ll never compliment someone’s outfit if I don’t know them however great they look, and it’s unlikely I’ll ever speak up in a meeting, however good my idea might be. Not everyone is confident and I need to be happy with that. Think how loud and in your face the world would be if everyone was confident.
Get over the fact that you’ll never be able to walk in heels
I’ve never been good at wearing heels because I never had an interest in them as I was growing up. I wasn’t an overly girlie girl and even now other than my obsession with makeup I wouldn’t say I’m girlie and I’ve never been great with heels. I can admire them in shop windows and on other women but when it comes to wearing them myself I struggle to walk properly and I moan because my feet hurt. While it would be nice to suddenly one day be able to talk in stiletto heels I need to get over the fact that it just won’t happen.
Get over the feelings of constant insecurity
I’ve always been quite an insecure person, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. Men in general, have been a bit dickish to me over my life, but I need to try and get over my constant feelings of insecurity. I’ve been very lucky to find a someone who makes me feel wanted and loved and it’s really shown me that nice people do actually exist so I need to relish in the fact that I have been lucky and cherish every single moment I have of it without the feelings of insecurity. Over the past four months’ or so I have found these feelings’ lower considerably so now it’s time to let them go.
