I had my awakening this past weekend.
I've read this post many many times, and while I thought it was a very nice and powerful read, it just didn't apply to me.
Well, something happened this weekend that opened my eyes. I won't go into the gory details, but that voice finally cried enough
. And I can't tell you what a powerful feeling it was and how my thinking and feelings have changed since.
I'm done seeking approval from my family and friends. I'm no longer interested in putting other people's needs before my own. I'm ready to start loving and accepting ME. And I'm going to stop letting fear rule me.
I can't even describe the feeling. It's similar to the way I felt when I hit my codie bottom. For me, things are always like that. Nothing ever happens gradually. I tend to go along in life, doing things one way, constantly banging my head against a wall, until one day I finally get it
BD, thanks for making this a sticky post. It's taken me a long, long time, but the light bulb finally went on.
Thanks for listening.
