“A Choice of Comfort or Freedom……”
I did this because I didn’t want to create a stir.
In my mind, if I spoke out I would be reprimanded.
- Speaking out wasn’t ladylike
- Having my needs met wasn’t important
- You put others first before yourself
I’m not proud of these belief systems, but I am proud of the fact that I have finally recognized them for what they are.
Detrimental to my happiness, my peace and my joy – detrimental to my self.
As we grow we create these belief systems, these patterns of behavior – and most of the time we don’t even realize we live our lives through this tainted lens or if we are aware, we think we are powerless to change them.
We are not.
We are powerful beyond measure and it just takes courage and strength to make the changes necessary to get you to be more in alignment with your authenticity.
If you’re not in alignment with your authenticity, your truth, you will feel unhappy – you may even begin to feel dis-ease in your body.
I had a beautiful marriage with a beautiful soul mate and I don’t regret one minute of it.
He will always play a starring role in my life. He is the father of our four children and a cherished friend.
So what changed??
