When you grow and take the next step, chances are there will be a change in your environment. You might outgrow a loved one or people you usually associate yourself with.
How painful it may be, change will happen.
Even though we want growth, change often comes when we are not ready to let go. We keep looking at the closed door that’s causing us all kinds of pain and agony. Some people welcomes change while most hate change because it’s not the everyday living, it’s outside their comfort zone.
When we finally let go of what’s holding us back, a weight gets lifted off our shoulder. We feel freer and more productive. All the time and energy spent on fixing that unhealthy relationship can now be put on other healthier and creative choices.
As I wrote about in an earlier post, my biggest change came after I had a baby. I actually don’t remember what I use to do with my life, before him besides hanging with my girls and family. That was what I used my time for. There is nothing wrong with spending time with loved ones; I was perfectly contempt were I was. My dreams were just my dreams, and I never thought of pursuing them.
When you have your life on auto-play, you don’t have the need to dig deep inside yourself to see what your purpose truly is. Even when you try, if you don’t know what unconditional love looks and feel like, you don’t know what you are looking for.
I have spent many years working with myself, to love and accept myself just as I’m. It wasn’t until I became a mother, I found out what unconditional love really is. The kind of love that is ever growing and giving, the kind of love you pour over your kids.
This kind of love you are supposed AND ALLOWED to have for yourself. If you think about it, how can you teach your children to love themselves if YOU don’t love yourself?
While working with these challenges and how to raise self-esteem to feel more confident about yourself, I stumbled upon this interview with Jennifer Lopez talking about how she’s been suffering from low self-esteem and how her kids taught her about self-love while promoting her book True Love.
It’s a real eye-opener, check it out!
