Be your own greatest supporter……..and always support the authentic you, the person you truly are at your core. Anything else means you are subjugating yourself so that someone else feels comfortable; instead of honouring your authenticity. That is why it is said that no one can take away your power unless you give it them.
There are times in our lives when we accept things we shouldn’t accept, when we allow people to mistreat us, disrespect us, or to insult our spirit…….during these times we must first acknowledge the role we play in our own lives when it comes to our choices and therefore what we experience.
When lives fall apart it is because they need to be rebuilt……they fall apart because the foundations are shaky….because we are not being true to who we truly are and so as we move farther away from our authenticity…..we seem to lower the standards for what we need and want from our lives and the people in them. We forget who we are……
