Emotional Work is Work, Too

December 8, 2017

You know those platitudes you know are true, but don’t actually believe?

Asking for help doesn’t make you weak. Changing your mind doesn’t make you a failure. Saying no doesn’t make you a bad person. It doesn’t matter what other’s think, you’re the best judge of what’s right for you. If you don’t put yourself first no one else will.

Your brain knows they’re true but your heart? Not so much. You know it’s pointless to care what others think of your outfit or your relationship, but deep down, a reaction less than, “Fantastic!” bothers you.

You know what’s the best, though?

When it clicks. When your heart catches up to your head and you get it. When you have that overwhelming moment of clarity.

That feeling of alignment—and the act of letting go—is such a sweet release.

The last month or so have been emotionally exhausting for me. I’ve been tackling some core beliefs that have been driving my actions and holding me back. Beliefs I learned when I was little that don’t serve me anymore. I don’t live in that world anymore, I’m not that person anymore. It’s time to let go.

Because if we keep doing what we’ve always done, we’ll keep getting what we’ve always got.

Do the work. You owe it to yourself.
