There should be a class that helps people settle into being themselves-it’s sad that there are so many people in the world who work relentlessly to be perceived as something or someone they are not. I say “perceived” because you can’t hide from yourself, unless there are other underlying issues and in that case don’t be afraid to admit that you need to lie down on somebody’s couch and get to the root of your issues.
It’s important to remain steadfast and committed to your process in your peaks as well as your valleys. No journey is without shortcomings and obstacles are inevitable-it is only when you quit that you lose.
Don’t give people permission to define your progress-move at your own pace-be unapologetic about mistakes-it’s all part of the journey.
The Holidays just bring out that extra spirit of love that takes over and fixes things. GOOD TIMES.OPTIMISM.HEALTH.PROSPERITY.
I’ve learned a lot in the past week. The lessons have been kind of hard, but my wisdom has reached new heights. I’ve learned that it’s super important to remain conscious in all of my interactions-to be mindful of the ears I confide in-to be mindful of where my help comes from. Well,….I wouldn’t say learned, I would say that I was reassured. The worst thing you can do is put your name on the tip of a negative tongue-a spirit that is grudging against you. It comes back with extra ammunition-it becomes more empowered.
I am certain that my life must be my life-my family must be my family-my husband must continue to be my best friend-my son is my reason. I pray that God places me in circles that give me the freedom and the comfort to be me-to speak my truth-lead me to those who will be inspired by my words when their hearts are discouraged. Surround me with positivity and give me the courage to step away when it is not perceived as such.
“People pleasing” is exhausting. You put all of your energy into trying to adhere to expectations that have evolved from other people’s shortcomings and insecurities.
