YOU’RE GROWING, BUT THE PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE ARE NOT. HERE’S WHAT TO DO.

An important and not obvious until you get there fact of life is that although you are changing, the people around you aren’t

When you develop yourself, your future and start to make positive steps you need to remember that those around you may not like or be happy for your success. That’s OK.

They may not know how to handle your new approach to life, your success or the positive changes you have made. That’s OK.

This post from Mel Robbins looks at what to do when you grow but those around you don’t.

My favourite part of the post?

#4. Be a cheerleader.

Without being obvious or inauthentic, begin to really cheer for your partner.

Not for making changes (though you can cheer for that, too) but for all the reasons you fell in love with this person in the first place.

Leave love notes around your home, plan regular date nights, and create new routines together.

Once your partner truly gets that you’re excited with them just as they are, they may be willing to take steps to move out their own comfort zone.
