I am enough.
i am worthy.
i am perfect in my imperfections. 👉🏻and also 👈🏻 i have a lot of work to do.
i am striving to be better.
i am unpacking my own bias and prejudice.
i’ve come far and have far to go.
these ideas and ideals are not mutually exclusive. we can be enough and still have work to do. self study is the examination of self and the seed of transformation. #selfstudy#ihaveworktodo#transformation
💜what is it that you need to be more persistent or consistent in?🤔
persistent- continuing firmly or obstinately in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.
consistent-acting or doing in the same way over time, especially so as to be fair or accurate. ☀️be diligent in these matters: give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. watch your life and doctrine closely. persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and you’re hearers.

I met with a counselor the other day about some things going on in my life that i've been struggling with emotionally & can’t seem to let go of. things that are other's decisions that i have no control over but effect me in my every day life & take a big tool on my emotions.
i felt like sharing my thoughts on our discussion because i took some good insight away from it. i like sharing things like this on here so people can take their own inspiration away from it with whatever they’re dealing with in their own life. i’m sure someone else needs to hear it in some way.
we talked about setting boundaries & detaching emotionally when it comes to anyone in your life who is weighing you down in any way. things or situations you have no control over but continue to hurt you because you allow it. when things effect your life due to bad choices of other's, it straight up sucks. even being an optimistic person like myself, it has the power to stop you in your tracks & hold you back from evolving in your own life.
my first reaction to toxic people or anyone who has hurt me badly is to completely cut them off like they no longer exist to me. i do this to protect myself, my energy. but when that person is someone you have a lot of love for & who isn't ‘purposely’ hurting you—they’re just caught up in some chaos, reacting like that really does nothing but create guilt, confusion, feeling of defeat, sadness, & lots of “what if’s”. something i would constantly ask myself: "what if something happens to them tomorrow & i didn't tell them that i still love them no matter what...". you can still love toxic people as long as you set boundaries. you create boundaries so you are less likely to get caught up in the chaos & keep the focus on yourself and your well being. it'll be hard and uncomfortable, but doing so will bring you less anger, resentment, & guilt. but learning how to do so comes in baby steps towards your own healing from the situation.
