While you're making these changes to better your lifestyle, people around you are going to notice, and there are some that are not going to like it. Sadly, this is one of the main reasons why most people won't make any changes in their lives and just stay comfortable where they are repeating the same mistakes over and over again. This fear of rejection of losing a friend or a person in their life can hold you back from so much.
If they were your friend, they would support you. If they were your loved one, they would help guide you. If they were your family, they would love you no matter what.
Finding out who is against you becoming a better version of yourself can become heartbreaking and defeating. You start to listen to the words they speak a little bit differently because now your eyes are open to the fact that there is a possibility someone or something is holding you back.
Again, this journey is not an easy one, but it is very well worth it and you have to stay strong.
One of my personal journeys is I had a best friend who I was very, very close to very quickly. At some point I noticed she started to pull away from me and I had no idea why. I wasn't always interested in the things that she always wanted to do but we knew this from the beginning. She lived a very drama filled, negative lifestyle and I personally preferred not to. We were going down different paths in our lifestyle and I personally knew that I would have to do something about it. I tried talking to her about it and she just got defensive. Sadly, we are no longer friends but I always wish the best for her.This was hard for me because she meant alot to me. Then going through my journey, I had to realize that some people are only meant to be in your life for a little bit. Some are not meant for the long haul.
The moral of this story is when you start to grow as a person sometimes there is people and things that you're going to have to leave behind.
Please remember we do not strive for perfection we search for balance so don't beat yourself up. Everyone's lifestyle is different so people will get to this point at different times. Trying is always better than doing nothing at all.
