Many times over, we are faced with deeply troubling and soul wrenching situations which tend to reduce our ability in believing. But at a point, the most thing needed is the touch of value within us which is the harbinger of confidence and self worth; of esteem and undaunted intrepidity.
Truth is the bedrock of bravery. Living a lie keeps you outside the gate of breakthrough. Trusting your instincts, basking in the euphoria of your charismatic self, having a line, drawn between you and what does not serve you and also setting a known boundaries between reality and a fleeting happiness.
Also, the strongest and foremost self care tip is learning to say no. The courage of consciously creating points of closure between what you want and what you don’t is a total freedom on its own. Do not ever lose touch of this will—
I once had a romantic relationship with a not-too-tall, really dark man, infact everybody thought that it would be US at the end of the day. Infact, I reaped a marriage proposal amidst all the other societally exciting bonuses of being with one who ‘seemingly’ had a pocket, full. The courage to engage my true and thorough self within the confines of that relationship was hard to find, I went from being abused to being neglected to being disrespected back to being abused. Still, I didn’t find the switch and as more unfortunate as it became, YEARS rolled by 😂. In the eyes of the public, it seemed perfect and there was nothing else I was designed to experience asides that. Yes! Years rolled by but thankfully, there was a subconscious reformation in my mindset as I began to connect with the strength to refuse what was not meant for me. Well, it was a struggle but it was worth it. By the time I was fully connected and the switch changed, I was readily charged to say NO. I was ready to defeat what had always conquered my will to choose happiness over it all. I was ready and already on my way to making amends for the years wasted by being just better and wiser. I was ready to unleash my bravery, which I was already in connection with. Phew! and that was it. I was ready to move ahead, onto nicer experiences…
***stay tuned for the connecting story😋☺️
