I’ve learned this lesson several tens of times, and yet when I’m struggling with any kinda negative emotion, I forget to turn to it.
We have been raised to escape from our emotions, and taught that it’s not right to feel anger or disappointment or whatever it is that others think isn’t desired..
I myself feel weird when my son feels guilty of expressing his disappointment. He openly speaks it! He expresses it by crying out loud. N I’m getting used to being okay with that..it’s tough n yet I’m learning..
It’s okay to feel anger! The minute we let it pass, it’s gone!! Struggling with it makes it stay!
I intend to choose the ‘being okay with any negative emotion’ part.. It makes life super easy..
I’ve always wanted to be like those authors whose tiny articles In local newspapers are such an impact. These articles have been such an inspiration for me, that I’ve always wanted to do the same.
Write inspirational stuff that has the potential to change people.
The only goof up I made, when I chose to inspire was that I misinterpreted it as perfection!
So I had to be perfect before I could allow myself to inspire others. How silly of me to get the two confused.
Why should anybody be perfect? And what is perfection? It’s a definition that changes person to person,and is mostly unattainable cuz that’s how we define it for ourselves!
So here I am, totally in awe of all my flaws, my imperfections, wholeheartedly choosing to inspire!
Have you got ‘perfection’ jumbled up with other words from your vocabulary?
Time to see the distinction 🙂
