"The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any."
Being honest with ourselves isn’t easy. It’s hard to take the finger we’ve been pointing at everyone else and turn it around to ourselves. We have to be compassionate with ourselves. It’s not easy to start looking at the parts of ourselves we aren’t proud of. It’s not easy to admit how often we do these things. It’s hard to take ownership of our mistakes and problems.
Love and accept these parts of you. It doesn’t mean you did anything wrong.
I really believe that we are always doing the best we can.
Once we gain awareness of things we want to change about ourselves, we can’t turn around and be mad at ourselves for how we acted in the past. We can only make changes if we’re good to ourselves. From there, we can start taking full responsibility for our lives instead of making excuses and blaming other people. This can be hard to do, especially if there seems to be a valid reason to blame someone. For example, say your boyfriend or girlfriend leaves you. Your world is shattered as a result of their actions.
Yes, they left. Yes, they did something to hurt you. You can be sad, brokenhearted, and mad. But stop there. Don’t let their actions ruin your life.
You have the option to let their decision define you, or you can accept what happened, feel all of your feelings, take responsibility for yourself, pick up the pieces, and move forward.
If you let your life fall apart because of something someone else did, you are choosing to do that.
It’s up to us to take situations like this and learn from them, letting ourselves grow and change.
