Some days, I’m overwhelmed with many thoughts that I end up not sharing or saying anything. I’m working on it. Finding a focus each day, and sharing a piece of it with you is my new challenge. I love this outlet, simply because it allows me to be open, and I’m learning to be more vulnerable. It’s hard.
Anyway, while browsing and in my thoughts, I ran into this message. I muddled over it for a while and this is what I formulated from it. We seek comfort in what is familiar and predictable to us even if it means repeatedly doing things that are emotionally and physically damning to our fundamental beings. I’m an examples type of person. It helps me understand the world.
Example 1: Dating men or women who are just no good for you. You’re allowing yourself to fall prey to what ifs, well if I do this they will change. Well if I give them the opportunity they will change. Repair your mind. You’re worth more than you’re being given. You feel it, you know it, you can sense it deep down and yet you’re allowing yourself to be used sexually and or financially. The evil you know is better than the one you don’t. Wrong. Let that individual go from your life, or at least provide yourself ample space (this person can be family) and take care of self. Stop letting your insecurities and heart be preyed upon. You are worth more. You are worth love. You just have to know it for yourself.
Example 2: Yo-yo dieting. You’ll continue to fall into the trap of dieting and gaining, dieting and gaining because you’ve yet to repair your mind. Have you made the necessary lifestyle change? Are you working out consistently? Are you challenging yourself consistently. This is a lifestyle change and until you’re ready to make it…you’ll continue to repeat this pattern. (Trust me I know 😩).
Ultimately, I could go on and on, but you get my drift. Repair your mind. Repair your soul. Repair your heart. Take the time to understand yourself better. Take the time to understand your strengths and weakness and then accept them. Love them. They are what make you, you. And, don’t you dare let anyone or anything make you feel inadequate because of it. It’s a process. It takes time. Just repair.
