❌THE #1 BLOCK TO A LIFE OF PLEASURE. ❌
You could be living an abundant life and then suddenly feel like you don’t deserve it . That’s shame . ⭕️
You could have beautifully fulfilling relationships… then the criticism creeps in. That’s shame . ⭕️
You could be absolutely beautiful, but you focus on one flaw. That’s shame . ⭕️
You could be having a fun, stellar day, and then all of a sudden feel that you should be struggling and working . That’s shame .⭕️
You could be enjoying a nap so much that you nap longer than expected and then wake up to a sinking feeling that you haven’t done enough. That’s shame ⭕️
Can you see how absurd it’s pattern is ? I personally wonder why it is so prevalent in our society. Why we as humans have accepted guilt/ shame to influence our lives .
✅it all comes down to WORTHINESS. And our flawed premise that we are not worthy until we do, have, or be something else . Rather than ENJOYING… in the present experience of life .
Yesterday, I noticed that it’s almost the half moon. ‘Time to illuminate & release’ I said . And so I asked myself, what do I need to release ? And my body responded clearly to where I was holding shame and playing small .
I tried to reason with it… but it was futile ! Shame always had a different take . And so I decided
❌enough is enough ❌.
No more reasoning … I will simply let it go, evict it and no longer allow it to exist in my life .
Are you done carrying around shame for existing ? Drop an emoji below if you feel me
