The thing I really want to say today is that “doing the work” to be and feel like the human you want to be isn’t easy, but damn it’s worth it. It takes years of mistakes, heart breaks, break downs, realizations, therapy, trying new things, gut wrenching pain, confusion, being lost, thinking you have figured it out only to find out you haven’t, cutting your own heart open and offering slabs of it, and sometimes despair. But joy, awareness, self worth, understanding why you respond the way you do and changing what you don’t like, the ability to say no, the ability to forgive yourself and others, the ability to recognize when you’re wrong and admit it, the ability to recognize when you’re being abused or manipulated and walk away, more inner peace and calm, and self love are on the other side. You’ll rip off that outer wounded layer and step out fresh. You’ll only seek and mostly attract others who have done their own work. Others who also know the work is never done... it’s a journey. You’ll feel lighter. You’ll feel worthy. You’ll feel wise. And free.
