To wake up,
To see and understand your obstacles,
To discard whatever holds you back from yourself,
To grow your mind, body and soul,
To thrive. To live.🔥
One of the hardest things I had to do in order to grow was say goodbye to one of the closest friends I ever had.
I knew that she was a negative force in my life that I wanted kept around out of fear.
I loved her, she taught me a lot, and I never wanted to lose her friendship.
As my consciousness expanded more and more, there came a point where I knew I couldn't progress until I did away with all things harmful to me. And it took a long time to accept that my close friend was actually harmful to my energy, aura, mind, etc.
For awhile I just thought that I SHOULD feel small and irrelevant, like I felt with her. Or like I SHOULDN'T feel beautiful and smart.
I just accepted the treatment because 'she's right' and at the time, I was honestly unaware of HOW she was making me feel like this. Sometimes I even questioned if it was all in my head.
But there came the moment when I brought the dilemma to her. I told her how I felt from the heart, that I want to continue our friendship, but I needed some things to change.
However, there was no desire to cooperate with me.
Which is fine. That was just the cue to part ways.
After awhile of mourning her absence and then being out of the situation, looking in, I realized EXACTLY how she tore me down everyday.. The stronger and wiser I become, the more I can cut straight through the bullshit.
The more I journey on in this body and mind, the more I understand why everything happens and happened the way it did. Life is too fucking short. There's no time to waste catering to someone else's life and leaving your own life in the dust.
Just know, this was something I needed help understanding, and maybe you need the reminder, too; You are WORTHY of happiness.
Soak it in, wrap your head around it, believe it. .👽
And sidenote, I do not harvest negative emotion over my old friend. I still honor that light in her. She deserves just as much happiness, too. She gave me a wonderful life learning experience. ✴Learn from your oppenents.✴ #learn #grow #awaken #mindfulness
