Hello SP Fam!
I’ve been going through a process lately of letting go of shame. I know i’m sure most can relate to this. It’s been very hard, but deeply healing no matter what steps i have to take.
For a while now, I kept parts of my past life hidden & always been pretty much secretive about most things. I was ashamed of the mistakes I had made and the way I used to live my life honestly. I had a lot of fear that people wouldn’t like me or judge me if I let them know the truth. And that is just facts on facts!
As I move forward in life I realize to have the kind of life that I want to have I need to throw out the shame I’ve been holding inside for so long. I’ve been working on eagerly “clearing” my fears as they come up. I’ve started to notice when I hide my real authentic self because of shame. I have made a commitment to stay true & 100% honest now. If I’m not ready to speak out loud about my problems I’ll remind myself to write about it in my journal.
This process has become really important to me but very long. I do believe when I show authenticity and my open spirited personality I give other people in my life permission to do the same and that feels really important to me for the most part.
What makes you open to be more authentic?
Sometimes we don’t always want to be our selves around people because we may not trust them or just feel uncomfortable. but no matter what, being authentic at all times has got me more further in life and gave me the courage to say what’s on my mind and not feel ashamed about it. Now i am able to do things that are hard and give myself that big push forward when it’s needed.
Is it hard to be authentic?
Yes it can be hard, especially to others who “aren’t authentic.” But that shouldn’t stop you from staying true. Maybe you can motivate someone to live in there truth and be just as honest.
Don’t give up on being a better version of you. To elevate in life, you have to make sure people know the real you at some point in life. Embrace your authenticity and be fearless. Some people will respect you won’t.
