Let's Just Sweep that under the Carpet

Newsflash ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Humanness alert (is that a word) ๐Ÿ˜

Now and then I find myself slipping back into my old patterns

The patterns of making sure everybody around me is happy because if I think if everybody else is happy then Iโ€™ll be happy too ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Dang itโ€™s a hard habit to break - seriouslyyyyyy

Thankfully, Iโ€™m able to recognize quickly when I am slipping down that slope of

performing And fitting

rather than belonging to who I am at the core ๐Ÿ˜

It can happen suddenly,

one day you feel like

youโ€™re speaking your truth

boundaries are in check โœ…

youโ€™re living your own life and then

you hear yourself say something you actually donโ€™t believe


You realize youโ€™ve been saying Yes to something thatโ€™s draining the lifeblood outta ya

you act a certain way that is so-not-who you are

but ๐’๐’†๐’•โ€™๐’” ๐’‹๐’–๐’”๐’• ๐’”๐’˜๐’†๐’†๐’‘ ๐’•๐’‰๐’‚๐’• ๐’–๐’๐’…๐’†๐’“ ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’„๐’‚๐’“๐’‘๐’†๐’•

Then you wake up one day realizing your life has been

a series of yesโ€™s & trails of times NO needed to be the go to answer

๐‘ฉ๐’–๐’• ๐‘ฎ๐’๐’… ๐’‡๐’๐’“๐’ƒ๐’Š๐’… ๐’˜๐’† ๐’“๐’๐’„๐’Œ ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’ƒ๐’๐’‚๐’•

What with โ€œtheyโ€ think?

See there's one huge problem with continually trying to make everybody else happy by trying to please other people & sitting on the fence of complacency......

Iโ€™m not going to go down the road of why we become like that, thatโ€™s not what this post is about because the list is Vast & we each had our own experiences that shaped us

What I am going to say is this. โ€”โ€”>

Once you come to the realization that you actually canโ€™t make everybody happy around you no matter how hard you try

Youโ€™re then able to start focusing on yourself;

doing the necessary internal work needed to see why that desire is within you in the first place - to make everybody else happy around while you push yourself to the side

We must be willing to put ourselves out there, and look in the mirror - in order to heal, help, change, learn and grow

So many times we want a different life,

we want to live in gratefulness, love, joy, peace and deep connection with others

yet we donโ€™t do the work on ourselves in order to evolve past carrying what others think of our decisions

โœจIf you know for 100% itโ€™s time to move forward in your life .... send me a message & letโ€™s get you started โœจ
