You’re Worth being Worthy
Do you have dreams and desires for your life? I bet you do!
Do you want to take your life to the next level, but the thought of doing it makes your stomach turn?
Do you wonder how you’re going to take care of everyone else and make your dreams come to life all while making sure no one gets angry with you in the process?
Are you ready to learn how to begin making your dream a reality? I thought so.
This month we are taking a deep dive into the pool of authenticity. It can be a confusing place, especially for those who suffer with co-dependency. Even if you don’t, the proposition of putting yourself first can feel as foreign as packing everything you own and moving to Tanzania.
Let’s break the process down for you step-by-step so that you’ll have a roadmap with action steps to get you closer to your dream life!
Here are some healing steps you can begin right now to repair the relationship you have with yourself and others.
The key to these steps is that you must step boldly into them trusting that doing something different will create a completely different result from anything you’ve yet to experience.
- Be honest with yourself and your partner.
- Don’t take things personally.
- Give yourself time-outs to think, journal, pray, nap, and get out into nature.
- Control negative thinking by countering the thoughts with something positive.
- Get into counseling if you know that you are unable to take this path alone.
- Establish solid boundaries within yourself and with others.
Just as doing the opposite of the above list is learned behavior so is the act of breaking bad habits. This is why it’s imperative to begin right now. I encourage you to cut and paste the above list or write it and place on the refrigerator. Better yet, take a picture of it and make it the wallpaper on your cellular. You’re going to need daily reminders in order for this to be successful.
Let me be honest with you. If you are in a relationship (work, love, family) where you are not happy and you are waiting on the other person to change, it’s most likely not going to happen. So, if you are settling for anything, no matter what it is, where you are truly unhappy, yet you show up day after day, then you need to apply Step 1 immediately.
If you’ve been honest, with yourself and others, and still…there’s that gnawing unhappiness…then hone-in-on steps 2-6 above. Give them your full attention. I promise you will begin seeing changes.
