What Holds Us Back: The Unstable Foundation
Day 2: A Message to the Mind
You are not me. You are a combination of generations of behavior patterns, my past, fears that I’m fed, and my interpretations of all the love and fear that I’ve experienced. Even with all of that, you are not me. You are not the love within me. You are only part of me. The love within me is the foundation that lies beneath the ruble. What you offer is perspectives, and perspectives can grow and change as I change. I believe I can be better. I believe my best in the moment is ever expanding.
I know I needed to go through everything I have to get me to where I am right in this moment. I know that. I’m not the victim of my past because that is just a perspective of thought and I can change any thoughts that come into my mind. They are not permanent. Everything changes, grows, expands, moves, and shifts. I don’t have to give my power to any thought pattern that makes me freeze or holds me back. That is my choice, because I’m not you.
Just because I’m not you, doesn’t mean I need to be against you. Fighting you will hurt me too. You are apart of me. My job is to see you as part of the whole, but not the whole. My openness to see my views of myself and others is my teacher. The more I can do this without judgment, the clearer I will see you—the more I will understand you. I will become a better me.
On this journey, I will do my best to remain open to the thoughts that hurt me and the ones that help me grow into the person I know I am underneath all this ruble. Until I understand you, my foundation where I need to build my house will stay unstable. You are changing. As you change, the ground everything lays on shifts. I’m capable of navigating those shifts if I stay open to understanding you. I can do this. I want to do this. I’m ready to do this.
With Love and Gratitude,
A Better Me
