I want to feel free to be naive.
I want to have the trust of a child, to be spontaneous without worrying to “prove” anything to anybody.
.
We spend a lifetime building walls hoping that someone will tear them down with their unconditional love.
.
If you’re a human, you know what I’m talking about.
.
We always expect others to do the work for us. But that’s the best way to never witness change in our lives and be stuck in the same patterns over and over again.
.
I had to do a lot of inner work (which never ends) to acknowledge my tendency to over give, ending up resentful, frustrated and surrounded by very wounded people who not only wouldn’t take any responsibility for their actions and feelings, but ended up sucking the life out of me in order to compensate that.
.
You know what I’m talking about.
.
Fake people, “frenemies” approaching you not for sharing but for taking only. Often times they’re family members. Our partners. Our colleagues or clients.
.
And I allowed that.
.
It took me so long, so much excruciating pain, so many tears I don’t even know how I managed to be still here.
.
But I’ve never felt so alive. Because finding my voice means knowing what I want in my life and what I won’t tolerate. What people I want to be part of my life. Giving direction to your life. It means being free to be yourself, unapologetically.
.
It means learning to love yourself and others. For real.
It means opening up to life and new possibilities you couldn’t even imagine.
.
It means HAVING THE POWER TO CHOOSE.
.
And it’s the best feeling in the world.
.
I’m not allowing being shut down in my life anymore.
I don’t want to spend another moment watching my back from people who are unclear, wishy washy, unwilling to do the work and want to drag you down.
.
I’m not taking any of it from those who choose to be in the cheap seats. And you shouldn’t either.
.
I want to be vulnerable. I want to feel free to be fragile, helpless, messy, needy at times and embrace it all. Because that’s what makes me strong.
.
That’s the kind of people I want in my life, in my work, in my home. People who are honest and aware of the fact that they are human.

Drop me a ❤️ if you are too!
