One of the first lessons that I learned while doing my spiritual and emotional cleanse is that I was not going to please everyone. There would be repercussions. Change is hard even with the best of intentions. My spiritual journey is MINE, so when making those decisions, I have my own well-being in mind.
This week I have set many boundaries in regard to my decision of detaching from certain relationships. Anything from telling individuals that I don’t want to hear any negative talk about what an individual has said about me, to abstaining from idle chatter regarding someone else’s decisions. Look, I don’t need to explain myself to anyone. The only thing that I am responsible is to be true to me.
It is interesting to me that after months and months of transitioning into a realm of peace, others continue to be uncomfortable. It is been said to me, that I am to blame for some of their decisions. Interesting. At last glance, I wasn’t that powerful. Let’s just say, all of this drama doesn’t involve me.
All of this simply confirms that I made the right decision for me. The peace that I feel outshines the uncomfortable feelings of others. It wasn’t a flip change nor was it easy, but in order to fully grow into my true self, it was definitely a change that needed to happen My motto this week has been “not my circus, not my monkeys” as I have officially quite being the ringmaster of the insanity.
