Day 10: Living My Shame
To the Shame I’m Living In,
My eyes are open wide now. I’m ready to look at where I’ve let you drive my life. There are no more excuses for why I’m not living the life I want to. I can see that by trying to avoid you, I let you take over.
I will watch my behaviors and thoughts and question myself to see if you are behind the choices I’m making. I know if I’m not taking care of me, you are. You have told me not to take care of myself for long enough.
You are not as scary as I once thought you were. I see my choices now. I see that if I’m choosing a belief that makes me feel bad about myself, I’m choosing you to be the driver.
Each day I become more aware—I’m getting stronger. I turn over the wheel less and less. You are guiding me the only way you know how. The shame I’m living in is because I’ve chosen to belief your perceived truths about reality and me. I can choose to see things differently. Today, I will.
With Love and Gratitude,
A Better Me
