COMPROMISE...EDUCATION OF THE SOUL...
"Lasting relationships are about compromise" is a sentence which has been repeated to me by my parents, my partners and my therapist(s)...
If this was true, then why have I spent most of my life feeling as if there is something wrong with me, because compromise in relationships didn't always feel good or true or even healthy. Instead, it felt forced and unhappy. It felt as if I was giving away myself only to no longer recognise who I am.
.
The truth is that I have mistaken compromise with changing my own values to fall in line with theirs.
I have been compromising my truth, my beliefs, my voice. I have been moving the goalpost of my needs to keep the peace, wearing a mild mannered mask to keep up appearances. But the masks I put on, however heartfelt, break down as soon as a life demands of me real authenticity, at which point I realize how much easier it would have been to just be myself...
.
My acts of compromise have been driven by fear! The fear of a breakup, the fear of the loss of love, the fear of failure, the fear of abandonment, the fear of confrontation...Whereas compromise should go hand in hand with my core values, it should give rise to self expression, it should be driven by love.
.
Aristotle talks of compromise as "the education of the soul," which is when "you and your partner both welcome putting up with the temporary pain of personal change for the greater gain of personal growth"...
Compromise is good and necessary, finding a common ground where neither person is in conflict with their authentic self is beautiful and gives rise to compassion and love, it allows for self growth, for changing that within ourselves which is controlling, unbending, and negative...but it's important to discern good compromise from bad compromise and to understand that any kind of happy medium ought to be...well...happy! ... #dothework .

Awareness Wednesday time! Ahh... You've gotta love the sight of a Family Farm. Wait, what?! Did you know that 98% of all feed lot operations meet the USDA's requirements for being labeled a Family Farm?! If that's not a load of crap - there is definitely one in this first picture. Did you also know that 75% of all beef comes from feed lots like these? It's ok though, this is totally a natural way to raise animals. At least that's what the package says, so you know it's good.

This is Brookie aka armadillo 😳 when she's on her back her knees are literally to her mouth when sleeping .... the knee braces are a nightmare and she just screams so that's a no go bc no sleep..... We pull her legs straight and use our arms to hold them down to give her some pressure, but then We dose off to sleep and her legs pop back up and we start that routine again. We're at a loss at what to do.. when she wakes up it takes us a good 10 minutes to straighten out her legs, but during the day she's fine..#smilesforbrookie #mylittlecpwarrior #cerebralpalsy #impossibleisnothing #cerebralpalsyawareness #nonverbal #inclusion #iamadaptive #yoocandoanything #smile #model #kidmodel #specialneeds #doublehipsurgery #roadtorecovery #onedayatatime #rockstar #younglivingessentialoils #awareness

The 26 editions of Broadway Bares have raised more than $15.8 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. This year dancers are going back to college in the educational "Strip U" directed by the #Fierce and #Fabulous Mr. Nick Kenkel @nkenkel who also teaches an incredible class at Broadway Dance Center! This is my first year joining the efforts to help raise awareness, and I can't begin to tell you how amazing it is to see a community work... #WERKING together for such an important cause. Thank you all for your support and those who made donations to my Strip-A-Thon page! I made my goal of $1,000 thanks to your kindness and generosity. With a couple weeks left I decided why not double it! Please help me raise $2,000 by June 18!!! ❤️

The greatest error of a man is to think that he is weak by nature, evil by nature. Every man is divine and strong in his real nature. What are weak and evil are his habits, his desires and thoughts, but not himself. ~ Ramana Maharshi

"Anxiety In Autism"

I really need to talk about this! This is something I feel that needs to be addressed. I am Autistic, but I also have a TERRIBLE case of Anxiety, I have stress issues, I have frustration issues.

I feel that most people don't understand that autistic people like myself have bad anxiety and stress. This is due to the lack of understanding in a situation. We find it harder to understand things without more/better clarification, and they have no idea what's going on. And what makes it even worse is that some autistic people have anxiety so bad, that it goes to the point where they try to go as far as to HURT someone!
Another thing is that Anxiety in autistic people can be so bad, that it can cause Depression! Like, DEPRESSION!!!! They could not even want to do anything for a while, or even want to EVER. Sadness can be caused because of the misunderstanding of aspects of our world, like finding love, thinking too much of your future, and why bad things happen in their life.

Most Autistics have anxiety because of acceptance too! They feel that others don't like them because their different....
I've been through this actually, I was teased and picked on for being shy and weird. People don't understand that autistics are more vulnerable to sadness and anxiety because...well, we are autistic and different!

All I'm trying to say is that an autistic person having bad anxiety, is pretty much equal to a non autistic person having bad anxiety! It's JUST AS BAD! Some people don't get it, they even point and laugh at them behind Their back because they can! It's NOT ok! And it's NOT cool! I just find it disgusting, and I even have to sit by a guy in one of my classes that uses Autism as in INSULT to talk about other people, I don't talk to him, but I have to hear him talk about it with his friend.

Overall, this is just something I wanted to talk about, I just want people to be safe and to be happy about life. I hope you learned something from this, and take care! #actuallyautistic #autism #autistic #anxiety #actuallyanxiety #actuallyanxious #awareness

SQ: It will difficult to align our mind between each others, it's has own thousands​ thought. But it's more easy to align our heart, because heart only has 2 side, love - hate, god - bad, etc. I love you all #Spiritual #soul #dzikrullah #islam #shalat #makrifatullah #sufism #mindfulness #indonesia #world #entrepreneur #awareness #yogi #christians #budism #hinduism #religion #usa #balispirit #calm #healing #positivevibes #spiritualpath #vibes

Fully aware and open to all things that surround me or enter into my space. Wondering what lies beyond this Earthly realm and constantly searching for all of the answers to my questions. The cyclical nature of our existence keeps my mind moving and progressively evolving. Regardless of the minute subtleties of change that we all experience, I've learned that absolutely nothing stays the same.

Living w/ Anxiety and Depression
____________________________
I use to wake up every morning with a knot in my stomach because I would be anxious about how my day would go. I would hop into the shower and make myself throw up, to make sure their was nothing in my stomach. Vomiting became one less thing to worry about. Trembling, stomach aches, dizziness, headaches, tension, racing thoughts, nausea were my everyday feelings outside my house. I would hate going out. I was constantly getting bullied. I was constantly getting compared to other people by my own parents so of course I thought something was wrong with me. I would worry about doing everyday things correctly like the way you pay a bill. This was an every day thing and all of this would lead to my depression because I thought it would never get better. I would contemplate suicide. I would put up a fake smile so no one would worry. But…..things did get better through therapy, family, friends, and persistence. I still get depressed and anxious but its manageable. Now to all of you with anxiety or depression things do get better just don’t lose hope I promise no matter how old you are. For all of you who know some one with anxiety or depression provide them with all of your attention because you don’t know how much pain they feel. #anxiety #depression #hope #betterme #betterdays #dontgiveup #try #bullied #beatup #happy #different #alone #growing #gotbetter #smile #fakesmile #awareness #empowerment #helpothers #help #value #keeppushing #youarepower #helpless #scenery #stinson #marincounty #stinsonbeach #beauty #bueatyinyourself
