I am full of pain.Been betrayed by those who I did trust the most. I ain’t getting angry at them.It does not fix what was broken.Instead I am turning the pain into a motivational tool.
Most of the people think they have to prove something to others. Believing so, they’re following their ego. I better go after my own dreams and failing rather than spending my energy on fake stuff.
Once you become loyal to your true self you end up alone. The temptation to go back to the old connections is big. This is the point of your life where you have to choose between your fake self and your inner self.
When you feel like you are not progressing remind yourself the pain you had to go through, the tears you shed. Remind yourself of the toxic you have cleansed.
Remind yourself the low self esteem, the fear of rejection, the fear of abandonment.
All are gone now. You do love yourself now. You do respect yourself now. You are on the right track now.
If this is not progress, then what is?
Your old self has to die. Completely. It is the only way for the true essence of your soul to come out.
