Judge me all you want

Your judgement is nothing but a reflection of your own mind and its ability (rather, inability) to open and grow.

I’m currently working on giving zero f*ks about what this society thinks and trying to focus on living in integrity with myself.

I guess my conclusion that I would rather not be liked by too many people than to exchange my peace of mind, self worth, and my lifestyle for their approval is constantly validated out here.

I see my empathy and sensitivity as my strength and they’ve proven to be in so many circumstances. It’s exactly what allows me to connect with people at a depth which makes many others rather uncomfortable.

However, I’ve also learnt to show up for myself when my empathy is taken advantage of and when my kindness is taken for granted. Today I’m doing just that — showing up for myself and learning to be comfortable in my choices.

So go ahead, judge me all you want.

P.s. I feel so grateful to have been brought up in a different place. A place that allowed for expansion of my heart and mind, and, encouraged me to stand in my authenticity despite the opinions of others.

Wake up tomorrow, look around, say a word of thank you for the things you have. Take a deep breath, close your eyes and say thank you for people who are still in your life; for those who have showed up for you. Walk to your mirror and say thank you to the person you see. Make a promise to yourself that you won’t settle for any less than what you need. It doesn’t matter who says what. It doesn’t matter who “settles down” at what age, or achieves what when you know you’ve chosen a different path, one that is least followed, understood and accepted. Look inwards, for you know what is best for you. Look inwards, for you’re filled with love you’ve tired to find outside. Look inwards, for you’ve once given away too much love that you now owe to yourself. Look inwards first, always.
