Trust That You Know Who You Are
I was a little all over the place not so long ago. It’s the ‘chatter’ that screws with my head.
Now let me explain.
I don’t hold much space for inward chatter these days. I have gotten quite skilled at guiding my thoughts in a direction of my choice.
What I’ve realised is that I’ve more recently been allowing outward ‘chatter’ to infiltrate my space. To the point that it has been making me question whether the methods that I use are adequate, or whether I should be changing something up.
This has caused for me to take one gigantic step back.
My observation is that I am quite often way too open to other people’s thoughts and opinions. I quite honestly see it as a sign of respect to those whom I love. But this can cause me to become fractured within my own energy.
Constructive criticism is good. But if we consistently hold space for people to question the very essence of our being, it can very slowly but surely chip away at our own self-esteem.
“Just do this. Just do that. That will fix it.”
No, it won’t.
The thing is, that nobody else will likely ever understand me at the deep level that I can understand myself. This is the test. This is the lesson.
Some might suggest I should push beyond my comfort when it comes to taking action. So many people say we should work harder and faster to achieve our goals; and push beyond our discomfort and limitations. For me personally, that right there can quite quickly lead to illness and burnout, if I’m NOT paying attention. I know, because I’ve most definitely been there.
I have had others suggesting that I should lean more into grounding and a quietening of the mind.
My mind is already relatively clear. Yet, it seems I am one of those people who is much more likely to float in the clouds at times – but THAT is what makes me beautifully me.
I’ve tried to ‘fix’ and ‘change’ this about myself. But at some point, I stopped. But others quite often seem to still project that perhaps there is something I can do to ‘fix’ myself. That right there is what breaks me.
The thing is, no matter how I approach life – occasionally my energy gets a little scattered. It is what it is. I embrace this about myself.
I might be quite literally grounded one moment, then floating in the clouds the next.
I have found peace within that.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I love you and wish you so many blessings as you move through life. It’s important to be doing the work, but sometimes we have already done enough, and quite simply need to quieten the ‘chatter’.
As you lean into your own authenticity, I would encourage you to remember:
Don’t JUST get to know who you are –
Learn to TRUST that you know who you are!
