I’ve been ridiculed most of this lifetime and now that I am older, I can see there are different sets of rules for people who consider themselves “normal” and people like me who walk our very own unique, individual path.

People who usually dish out crap, certainly don’t appreciate when it’s thrown back to them. LoL People who use the term “oh just get over it already and move on” want empathy when it’s their turn to feel bad or experience something that is NOT so easy to move on from.

I’ve always been fascinated by humans especially how some things are ok for some but not for others…

Here’s the thing…I’m so grateful that I’m no longer the soft-hearted, walk-all-over-me HSP, INFJ/INFP, Empath that I used to be and people are beginning to learn to keep their crap to themselves instead of trying to give it to me. I’m still the HSP, INFJ/INFP, Empath I’ve been created to be however, I will put you in your place if you even think of trying to get at me!

Needless to say, my circle of people has dwindled to almost nothing…which is ok by me because I don’t want to be around people who don’t love and accept me as I am…all of me.

Let today’s spilled thoughts remind you to ALWAYS stand up for yourself! Yes it will feel uncomfortable if you are a newbie at standing up for yourself but trust that…

  1. standing up for yourself…gets easier the more you do it
  2. standing up for yourself…becomes a natural process for you
  3. standing up for yourself…FEELS GREAT

People like to share their crap but it doesn’t mean you have to accept it. Do what feels right to you; honoring yourself always. Now I’m not suggesting that you become aggressive or confrontational but you deserve to honor, support and love yourself completely. Most of all, you do NOT deserve to be handed crap from anyone; no matter who they are!

Oh and…don’t forget to stand up for the those who may not be able to stand up for themselves (i.e.; seniors children, animals…). I mastered standing up for others as a child but sort of just learning to really stand up for myself…flabbergasting isn’t it? LoL

And Hey Beautiful Spirit…You’ve got this! 🙂

As always sending you great Love, Peace & Blessings….

Road to Peace…

IImage‘ve been on a personal journey to obtain peace. You know the kind of peace monks have or statues of Budda seem to exude; I even want to “look” peaceful. When people see me there will be this magical glowing aura to let them know I am at peace. Don’t laugh…if you’ve read anything I’ve written before now you know exactly how vivid my imagination can be! I imagined daily mediation, yoga and connecting with the Universe, Moon, Sun, and Earth would lead to mystical experiences and I would forever be rid of negative experiences and self-defeating thoughts/feelings. I’m patient yet impatient and it’s no secret I’ve always been a perfectionist ergo my road to peace has been less than peaceful! 

 

I’ve looked everywhere for help: identifying my personality type INFJ, Highly Sensitive and innate Empath; identifying blocked Chakras; holistic methods to conquer anxiety and depression; learning what cycle and zodiac the Moon was in the day I was born (Cancer which explains my personality types) mediation with the Chopra Center, restorative yoga, identifying my passions…you name it, I’ve read/done it all for the sake of obtaining and holding on to peace.

Don’t get me wrong…some days are absolutely amazing; I flow and share to hopefully pass on peace to others. Other days…I feel like a hypocrite! Demanding that everyone love and accept themselves unconditionally, always feel worthy, block out negativity etc. meanwhile I am experiencing an internal struggle. It’s not enough to know many others who also promote positive thinking/feeling are also experiencing personal struggles; I expect more from ME! During past few days I’ve been ready to throw in the towel but again…I expect more from ME so I will re-group and continue my quest for peace.

 

People will judge and have their say but until you walk in my shoes…you will never understand that it’s not as simple as “getting over it”! I am Highly Sensitive and yes I feel more than most but I am determined, strong willed and I have never been and will never be a quitter!

Writing has always been therapeutic so I feel stronger as I write these last few lines. I hope you will share your story because it helps to know you are not alone.

Smooches,
