I have been learning to listen to that inner voice…that gut feeling. Many times than I would like to admit, what is revealed to me whether I like it or not ends up coming true.
I have removed my vices, my toxins, my armour, my mask and certain things I believed, are no longer.
Because of my journey to self discovery I am seeing the world with more realistic eyes and I am learning I can not expect the same from everyone else.
Just because I choose to be real and raw, does not mean those around me have to be.
I have uncovered and discovered things that I always knew to be true deep in the pit of my stomach…no longer do I have to dismiss these thoughts or feelings as anxiety or the past as they are unfortunately real and true.
Whatever I own, I will happily give away, to friends, acquaintances, strangers…we are here to give and love and create. If there is a judgement day I will be able to sleep easy at night. So many people live in denial with a fascinating refusal to look in the mirror and face who and what they truly are.
I am eternally grateful for the very few who can see into my soul♥
