Did you know that 12th September is the National Day for Encouragement?
This got me thinking – do we offer enough encouragement and support to our friends, family and colleagues to help them achieve their ambitions?
Being fairly new to the Blogging game, and spending a lot more time engaging with other bloggers on Social Media, the one think I have noticed is that everyone is so friendly, helpful, and always willing to offer advice on the blogging game.
But is it all as nice as I am led to believe? I mean we are all out there, doing our blogging thing, trying to gain more followers, trying to be the best in the blogging field – why do we really want to help each other?
I’m quite a naïve person – I always have been, and I generally take people on face-value, so if someone is nice to me, I think that they are a really sweet and kind person – so if someone stabs me in the back (which sadly has happened to me) I always feel very hurt and let down.
Sometimes, I think I’m just too much of a nice person, and that I let people walk over me too easily, and that if I toughened up a bit, I wouldn’t get walked all over.
But, why does it have to be like this? I know that not everyone will get on with everyone all the time, but why can’t we all give each other a nudge of encouragement and motivation every now and again?
For me, being on Social Media, and talking about my writing and blogging is such a big thing, as I have very little confidence in my own abilities, and Im sure there are others out there who feel the same, so let’s all just encourage each other – no bitching, no nastiness and then we can all achieve our dreams – no matter how big or small they may be.
