Establishing a goal especially if it involves a fitness program can bring out the negativity in your close friends. Maybe you do not have these type of friends or maybe it is just that one. I do have a few friends that are sarcastic negative.
“How long are you going to do this?” “At your age you should just be happy” “How are you going to do this and work?” “I really think fitness is overrated” . “Look like your progress is slow” and so many more.
I hear the negativity and I feel the hurt of not being supported. Should I drop my friends? Of course not, I limit my time and my discussions on my goals, actually I really do not respond.
How do I move forward?, I find a positive support group or groups. I stay committed to me.
Whatever your goal is ,distance yourself from the negativity, get in a group of people with positive vibes, with goals similar are identical to yours, one that motivates you even on a bad day.
Good bye NEGATIVITY
