I used to be afraid of making a mistake. I was so afraid of making decisions.
I worried so much about what other people thought. I felt they knew better than me.
I kept giving away my power- letting other people’s confidence or sometimes cockiness lead the way, which turned out sometimes to mis-lead the way.
I didn’t believe in myself.
I felt like I needed to keep searching in books, or seeking out experts to find the answers about my life, about what I should do.
It came to a point where I was just overwhelmed with information and contradicting points of view that I got fed up. They couldn’t all be right! Someone had to be wrong. I got angry for people sharing the stuff they were sharing.
Who were they to say that something was right or wrong or true or better or worse.
And then somewhere along the way I had to discover what I believed to be true. What was true for me. Just because someone was getting results with one thing, didn’t mean that I needed to love it and that it had to be true for me.
I started to wade through my own belief system and discover what felt good in my heart as to what could be MY truth.
I started to respect that there are so many different perspectives of the world. And depending on how you look at things, lots of different points of view can be kidn of right. It depends on your values and your life experience.
I learned to not be afraid of loving what I love. To not be afraid to speak from my heart, and that if someone didn’t like it, that is their right to their own opinion, and if inspired someone to go in an entirely new direction, than that was great too.
I learned to be ok with messing up, and making mistakes because that is how I learned some valuable things that I never want to do again, and I also discovered some amazing thing I definitely want to do again.. My world has expanded and grown because of my mistakes. I am grateful for it all.
So, don’t be afraid to go out of your comfort zone, or speak out or try a new approach. It’s all part of your beautiful expansive journey to being the True You.
