Hi there! Happy Wednesday! Here's to being that much closer to the weekend, right? You know how people say things can change in a "New York Minute?" I have felt that way over the last few days. I shared this on Facebook & Instagram earlier this week but I have felt so strong about it that I thought I would share it HERE on my blog.
You know, we all have our "stuff." We all bear our own crosses which, for each of us, is personal. I have shared, here, on social media, that my ability to trust (again), and be vulnerable, has been really, really tough over the last few years. It is something that I work on every day BUT I am still human.
Repeat, I am HUMAN.
I don't sugarcoat the fact that I struggle with it. I am who I am, and I cannot keep apologizing for it.
For some, it may be easier than for others. I am loyal to a fault, I care way too much, and I have been hurt at my core. I don't want to be judged on it. I don't want this to define me. I want to be seen for who I am.
Get to know ME.
I live my life with honesty and integrity; my character and reputation are extremely important; and I promised myself that going into 2020 I would not only continue to follow my heart & gut but know my self-worth.
My heart has been really heavy the last few days. I feel judged. The wall I built up was starting to come down, and now I feel emotionally exposed. We all have our faults. No one is perfect and no one deserves to be dismissed in a way that is hurtful.
This is not in my belief system.
I was always taught that, in order to work through something, it needs to be talked out. There needs to be an understanding of where someone is coming from, and how someone feels. If space is needed, allow room for that space and come back with a level head.
No assumptions, and no judgement.
You can read into this what you want but, just know, my wish for not only myself, but for YOU, is to keep remembering who you are, what you want, and never stop being true to you.
And, for some of my wisdom today, JUST KEEP PUSHING PUBLISH. Who cares if it is raw, messy, complicated, etc., JUST DO IT.
As always, hope you enjoy! Don't forget to check out all the past "Work Health Wisdom" videos below!
