I Give Myself The Permission to be Authentic

Over the last year I’ve learned so many vital lessons, but one stands out. This lesson revolves around giving myself permission to be authentic; to include, how I feel.

I heard several times this week (and it’s only Monday🤷🏽‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️) that I hold things in and I need to release. I do a good job of that, but eventually it will affect my health one person shared with me and they are exactly right.

I have perfected being “ok” even when that means I do want to tell a person how bad of a person they are, or look that deceitful person in the eyes and share how angry they have made me, but I elect to be “ok.”

A year ago I was defending who I was, protecting my space when people inquired about my personal life and the lesson learned is….#ItsOkToBeEmotional and #ThisThingCalledLifeAllowsMeToBeAuthentic

It’s not a 2020 thing, but a life style change for me to #embraceMyself and I challenge you to do the same!

I’m beginning to do this and I challenge you to do the same!

Share your story and I’ll continue to share my journey!

I am a 38 year old woman who realized life is what you make it! I am a mom, an ex-wife (two times), a lawyer, an educator, a librarian, and most important an overall loving person! I am me and I am taking #ThisThingCalledLife and embracing it!

    Agreed.

    I am a highly expressive, deep-feeling person. I’ve calmed down over the years and learned self-control, of course. But one thing I’ve still noticed: people who don’t know me well tend to dismiss my feelings/opinions as overly-emotional. That can be frustrating, especially in the business world. Just because I feel deeply doesn’t mean I’m not a rational person. Grrr.

      And I’m pretty opposite. I hold things in and try to always be the peace keeper. A great friend shared with me that I need to express myself more and if I feel like saying I’m angry or even #FIt to say it and get mad, so I’m happy to know you already do this!

      I’m working on this and I’m allowing myself to feel all of my emotions and while I’m naturally a calm person, I’m going to #embracemyemotions!
