Kick It With Donna episode 53 – Change in Perspective: What’s Holding You Back?
Do you ever wonder why you get stuck in a situation and can’t figure out how to get out? Fear is usually the answer. So many other emotions fall under fear. What is holding you back?
Show Notes: My guest today is Aaliyah Haqq. We had lunch one day and found out that we have a lot in common. One of our conversations was on online dating. We’ll save that podcast for a different day. We focused on relationships and asked the question, what holds people back from doing something else. Fear is the number one reason. If you’re in an unhappy marriage, here are some other challenges in breaking away:
- Loss of friends
- Lack of finances
- Family repercussions
- Self worth
I capitalized failure for a reason. I don’t like to fail. Do you? I’ve been divorced for eight years. The last ten years of my marriage sucked. I was unhappy and didn’t address it. You know why? Fear. My parents divorced. My mother used my brother and I like pawns in a game we didn’t understand. I was afraid my husband would do the same. I didn’t have my own income or healthcare. How would I survive?
I survived and have no regrets. I also taught my children a valuable lesson. Don’t give in to fear.
My new attitude: I would rather have peace than be right.
