"I Changed My Mind": Proof Of Your Strength Of Character!

Last updated by Katie M.

They say that only fools don’t change their minds, and I tend to agree with that saying. Winning back your ex only to realize that you don’t love him anymore, deciding to become a vegan after eating meat at every meal, saying no on your wedding day, etc. Some U-turns are harder and riskier than others, but changing your mind happens. It’s no big deal and on the contrary, saying it and assuming it is a great strength of character! And we love that!

I’m not my past

As I entered my thirties, I was overcome by a wave of nostalgia and a desire to take care of my body. As a child, I had practiced classical dance and still had wonderful memories of pastel pink, gracious poses, and beautiful music. I was more motivated than ever. I researched for days, paid a huge registration fee, and bought the whole outfit in local specialized shops. When I got home, I tried on the pantyhose, slippers, and leotards and I was uncomfortable, but nothing could dampen my enthusiasm. I wanted to announce to the world that I was starting classical that, fortunately, I’d evolved from since I was 8. Everything I did and liked doing for a while didn’t define the person I am now, and now I didn’t want to suffer and have a bad time in my spare time.

What I learned from this small change of heart is that you shouldn’t feel guilty about making a U-turn, even if you’re for it. Just ask yourself if changing your mind made you a more fulfilled person. If the answer is yes, you did the right thing, and you’re right to assume it.

I’m the star of my life... 🎬

... And I weigh my words. The idea is quite representative of what I’m talking about. There are many reasons for making bad choices:

  • haste
  • lack of information
  • misjudgment
  • influence
  • desire to please

Except that in the end we’re still the only ones living our lives, so it’s always legitimate to change our minds. Often, it doesn’t go down well when we change our minds. We all agree that taking an overpriced dress back to the shop doesn’t have the same impact as canceling your wedding the day before, but the change always makes waves or a bit of a stir. So be prepared to have to make excuses. 😏 Changing your mind shows that you’re strong, that you know how to say no, but it doesn’t stop you from apologizing. Let’s not forget that going backward can hurt those around us. Depending on the context, some situations will require a little patience before going back to normal or a more relaxed life, but it shouldn’t hold you back from realizing who you are.

Being in tune with yourself

Everything is there. In life, we can put up with situations: a job we don’t like, being single, illness, etc., but we must never forget that our life is our own, and we’re the only ones who can decide how we live it. It’s a major responsibility and requires us to ask ourselves questions: does my life correspond to MY choices? Is my life in line with who I am? You may come across as feeble, weak-willed, even a bit fickle, but that’s the way it is. No matter what you’ve been through, if the situation doesn’t suit you in the end, what’s the point of locking yourself in it?

👉 Giving up takes great courage, it’s also very liberating, but above all, it’s the greatest proof of love you can offer yourself. So allow yourself to change your mind! 💪

Editor’s note: You have the right to change your mind!

You have the right to change your mind or your desires, and this shouldn’t make you feel bad. This change of opinion is proof that you’ve thought about and analyzed the situation. However, if you’ve changed your mind based on other people’s opinions, you may be too easily influenced or being controlled by a manipulator. In this case, we strongly advise you to get in touch with a psychologist to discuss it.

🤗 Understanding yourself, accepting yourself, being happy... It’s here and now!

9 Things Psychologically Strong People Have In Common

I’m not psychologically strong, but I’m trying to become so. At least, there are things I still need to work on, because yes, I’m aware of the aspects that make a person mentally strong and able to rise above anything. I’ve identified 9 things that psychologically strong people have in common through various readings and my own experience. So if you want to be happier and stronger, here’s what you need to work on!

I Feel Different To Others

“No, but you’re an artist.” “You see, you’re quite original after all!” That’s the kind of comment I typically hear from my friends on a regular (very regular) basis. Compliments? Not really. More like a polite way of letting me know that I’m out of sync with them, that I’m trying too hard, or not hard enough, that I’m different. And do you know what? I think they’ve got a point.

Overinflated Ego

“No, but in any case, I’m better than you.” Honestly, who likes hearing this kind of sentence? Sometimes, it’s not put so bluntly, but clearly, if we read between the lines, that’s what is meant. An overinflated ego is what defines a megalomaniac, along with a need to put yourself before others… Dealing with a megalomaniac isn’t easy, especially when it’s a daily occurrence! So, if you want a peaceful life, discover the true meaning of this disorder, and follow our tips to making this relationship just that little more bearable.

Should You Really Confess Your Feelings?

Who hasn’t had a crush in their life? You know, it’s when you fall for someone and have feelings for them even though you don’t really know them. I’m one of those people who have had lots of crushes, and sometimes I’ve even admitted my feelings. In fact, a recent example was just before I started my relationship with my current partner. I offloaded what I was feeling all of a sudden… I’ll tell you why I did it and how to go about it.

How Does A Narcissist React When They Can't Control You? 10 Things They Do

You probably know by now that narcissists only ever look for one thing and one thing only; and that’s control! Whether in their personal or professional life, folks with this personality disorder need to be in the driving seat and the one calling the shots, otherwise all hell breaks loose. 😨 Although their cunning and manipulative nature means they are often hard to escape, it is still possible to turn the tables on them and take the upper hand. Yet, you’ll need a thick skin to do so because when they feel their power slipping away, they become even more dangerous and abusive; here’s how they react when that happens.

I Still Suck My Thumb As An Adult

In general, thumb sucking ends around the age of 6. I say “in general” and not “normally”, because as an adult I don’t feel weird or particularly bothered by it. When I get stressed, I allow myself to let go and return to my childhood self by sucking my thumb. Those who know about it or catch me by surprise make me realize I should be ashamed… But is this habit a big deal? What if it makes me feel better? It’s certainly no worse than lighting up a cigarette or biting your nails…

Are Narcissists Lonely?

Loneliness is one of society’s biggest enemies, and none of us are exempt from it, not even the most devilish of narcissists out there. In fact, throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, 36% of Americans claimed that they have never felt lonelier, which sets a scary benchmark for the wider population 😔. Now, lots of us would no doubt immediately assume that narcissists are too independent and strong-willed to feel alone, however, the truth is they are often the biggest victims of loneliness, yet simply have trouble expressing their inner malaise.

I Cry Everyday For No Reason, What Is Wrong With Me?

At the slightest annoyance or worry that crops us, I seem to almost immediately start crying. It doesn't matter if it’s in front of the news, a movie, if I’ve been criticized at work or gotten into an argument with my family, I open the floodgates. With each strong emotion, tears run down my cheeks. All this makes me wonder about my mental health and ask myself if this is normal to be like that? Is crying a lot a bad thing?

Signs A Narcissist Is Playing Mind Games With You And What To Do

People with narcissistic personality disorders love playing games because it reinforces their sense of control and validates their need to pull the strings. Now, the idea of playing games may seem fairly harmless and innocent, but the truth could be further away from the reality when these manipulative personalities are involved. 😱 Indeed, narcissists are always one step ahead of the rest of us, which makes it difficult to recognize when they are toying with people.
