You changed for somebody else – you invested all that effort. Then they stormed out and you’re left with an “empty” version of yourself. You shoved your square peg through a round hole and come out damaged and unrecognizable.
Your return on investment (ROI) sucks!
Now begins the long-ass journey back to… yourself. This stage of the process has you starting at minus zero. Because the investment you made wasn’t actually for you – it was for someone else. And you got left behind with nothing to show for all of your hard work.
When you change for someone else, they’re the one that leaves with all of your changes. It’s like shopping for new clothes that you never get to wear. And when you get dumped you don’t even get your clothes back, you end up in tattered rags.
Change is good, but who keeps the ROI? Stop getting ripped off. Invest in yourself. Invest in your own growth, confidence and success.
