The majority of my life has been me placing the emotions and feelings of others over mine. I would internalize what was happening around me or to me, and I would struggle to express how I felt and just trapped it all inside. I subjected myself to treatment that I did not deserve. All because I was trying to be the person that I felt that other people deserved. I also assumed that people would shift how they treated me IF I continued to treat them well. Boy, was I wrong.
“Keep your head down and mind your business…” was the quote I lived by. But keeping my head down, figuratively became my physical flaw. I walked with my eyes to the ground, I always felt uncomfortable, incompetent and embarrassed. The biggest fight I had with myself, was when I started getting into yoga, and you’re taught to align your head, with your neck and elongate your spine. You’re taught that the opening of your crown is your direct connection to God and Spirit.
“The world would be a much happier and peaceful place if people weren’t so quick to be judgmental, negative and overstepping of boundaries. People overstep their boundaries on a daily basis. If something isn’t happening to your physical body, why are you so concerned about the “salvation” of other souls? These human beings with feelings are being condemned by people who believe they are coming from a godly place”
Life has taught me this valuable lesson. We are too expectant of other people to do our jobs for us. We expect others to make us feel valued, worthy, and happy. I’ve learned that this is unfair habit that many of us have.. It’s not only unfair to the individual that we are putting this pressure on, but its also unfair to ourselves.
