Not every person is going to understand the topics I write about or resonate with my point of view and that’s okay.
For a long period of time, I held myself back from expressing my thoughts and feelings on topics. I chose to repress this because I feared how other’s would judge me if I revealed my true self.
I’ve come to the understanding that not everyone is going to like what you have to say and not everyone is going to like who you really are and that’s exactly how it should be.
No one else can walk in your shoes and you won’t find your soul tribe or the people you’re meant to help if you continue to be someone your not. For so many years I’ve altered myself in order to be an easier energy for the people in my environment to digest.
I was going through so many internal changes that I was insecure about the person I was becoming, making me feel the need to hide these new beliefs I came to about life and the changes I wanted to make.
When I no longer could lie to myself or other’s I did lose friends, relationships and even some family members.
However, external loss isn’t as detrimental as willingly handing over your truth.
These friends and family member’s could no longer walk beside me on my journey, they simply didn’t accept the person I was becoming.
At first, this was hurtful because I believed love meant I would always be validated by my friends and family. People walking away from my truth showed me that my own validation is THE most important and if walking alone is required to live in my truth than so be it. I’d rather walk a lonely path then walk with people that make me feel alone.
After this phase of solitude and allowing an internal shift to take place like none other. I’ll tell you that changing isn’t easy when the truest part of yourself is chaotically making you question your external world it feels like everything is falling apart with or without you on board.
But if you set aside the need to control and allow this change to take place you’ll realize soon enough this is exactly what you asked for.
You wanted to be yourself all along, you just didn’t know your the life your living is vastly different than the life you are meant to live.
Sit back, relax and let these changes take place.
