At my age, which is now 80, I’ve had many years to learn from and overcome mistakes. I’ve also had lots of time to gain insights that in sharing, perhaps will also help you to move into different space if you're not yet where you want to be.
Sometimes it takes years to stop worrying about what other people think of you and to allow yourself to be vulnerable with others. However, if you hide who you are, you will not only be selling yourself short, you will be selling the world short too.
You are a human being and were not made to be perfect. In fact, if you told me you never make any mistakes I’d be very concerned because it means you are holding onto fear and it will be challenging for you to grow emotionally.
Because I've been able to let go of self-limiting beliefs that were imposed on me many years ago, all of the insights have given me the ability to become who I truly am…
A woman who can acknowledge that throughout the years I’ve made many mistakes and that my abusive childhood was because my parents didn’t know any better so they just did what they had been taught. Sad but true. Role modeling is so important.
I’ve also learned that forgiveness is for my peace of mind, not for the people who hurt me and, I’ve come to realize that I not only respect myself, I also deserve to be respected by others.
One of the most important questions you can ask yourself is… are you putting on a show for the world so they see what you want them to see or are you willing to show the authentic you and when necessary show vulnerability?
‘Til Next Time
Have a week filled with love and joy
