I can own this
I own this!
What I have been working on with myself is;
Compassion for myself and others,
Respect what it means to me,
Knowing that everyone deserves respect
As they are and not trying to change that, or make them conform to me,
So that I am more comfortable with their truths..
Honoring to each their own,
More presence in my experiences- good, bad, ugly and shitty…
Allowing, as an embrace to let let flow,
No more I can’ts,
No more excuses!
More loud blurts of thoughts, opinions, cares, worries, fears,
As to observe, reflect, re-work,
My ability to change by choice,
Forgiving myself right away,
Not waiting for my inner critic to nit pick me,
And saying no more, enough is enough..
When my plate is full,
I am working on letting that be all that I am working on,
When time frees up again,
I will take other things on…
Which means I am working on shame,
Guilt and my empath sensitivities to absorb other people's problems,
Without allowing my past to manipulate me into saying yes, when I want to say no..
Eradicating the people pleasing,
Acting how others want me to,
Only talking about what they want to hear,
And not saying sorry for me being
What are some things you are working on?
You don’t have to tell me,
But, do celebrate each part,
What you think, say, do, change, give, share,
Everything were working on,
Or have overcome,
Sometimes need voiced,
To acclimate ourselves further into
May You Celebrate each piece,
Like a huge victory it is,
On your journey.
