I never felt I could rest. I grew up caring for a lot of others on an emotional level, so even when I became a SAHM + had moments to sit down or take a break, I would feel guilty, ashamed or unworthy.
I’ve worked hard at letting these lies go. I don’t have to earn my spot. I don’t have to prove myself to anyone. I don’t have to push + push until there’s nothing left.
We take on the thoughts of others as our own. As we begin to heal, we learn that we can challenge these thoughts + more importantly the beliefs that aren’t ours. We no longer live as a puppet, on autopilot, unconscious. We can begin to align ourselves with thinking that invites us to grow, but doesn’t squander our spirit.
Which one from the list stands out most to you? Can you relate?
