Dealing with Bullies + Naysayers When You Make Empowering Life Changes EP#314

Sep 1, 2019

Ever have *that thing* where you make a positive life choice for yourself, like getting in shape, getting on medication, or choosing a new career path, and the peeps in your life are less than supportive? They say things like, “Why would you stick to that workout; You always give up on everything?” or “Do you want to be dependent on that crazy medication all your life?” or “Why don’t you get yourself a ‘real’ job?” Whether they mean well or not, it can be so discouraging (and downright infuriating) when the people in your life shoot down your excitement and enthusiasm for something you are #legit pumped about.

In this episode, I dissect a listener submission that asks, “How can I deal with all the naysayers and bullies that constantly make snide and hurtful remarks now that I’m committed and thrilled about my weight-loss process?” I discuss five strategies you can employ to get rid of the Negative Nelly’s in your life and speak up for yourself like the Confident Courtney that you are! Plus, I give you the exact words to say, so get your paper and pen handy!

This pod explores:

  • The first step to take if you feel like the peeps in your life are N E G A T I V E
  • How to prepare ahead of time for sticky get togethers, meet-ups and events that often leave you freaking out about what dipshit thing people may say to you
  • Four specific tactics and approaches to take to speak up for yourself depending on who you are talking to
