The foundation of living a happy life is living a SELF-APPROVED life! I can’t tell you how many people feel GUILTY for being who they are. It’s usually because some dogmatic version of religion told them they were wrong, or their tribe growing up didn’t accept them, or they had abusive parents, etc. Whatever the reason, I feel like many people feel like they have to fight for the right to just exist.
Well, I’ve got a message for you… IT’S OKAY FOR YOU TO BE YOU! You are LOVED, ADORED, CHERISHED & ACCEPTED for who you are by The Divine, by The Universe & by me. There is nothing you have to prove. There is nothing you have to DO or become to be enough – you ARE enough.
Guilt is an interesting topic – and the definition I found is VERY interesting. It said guilt is “admission of wrong doing.” That’s interesting. The first thing I thought was… ok… wrong doing, but wrong doing according to WHOM? Who feels guilty when you feel guilty? Whose rules are you living by? Whose standards are you living by? Whose lifestyle choices are you living by?
All these questions need to be answered to determine why the heck you feel guilty in the first place.
You may find out that you feel guilty because you are living your mother’s life, or your father’s life, or your tribe’s life or your preacher’s life. Very rarely do we feel guilty for being ourselves when we live a Self-Approved life. We feel wrong because we have adopted a belief system from someone else that tells us how we “should” or “shouldn’t” be, instead of listening to the beat of our own drum.
You have PERMISSION TO BE YOU! Express yourself. BE yourself. Acknowledge yourself. You don’t need to prove or earn your right to exist. You, your dreams, your passions, your heart’s desires are VALID, OK & ORDAINED by The Divine to be expressed through you. Know this. Accept this. No apologies for being the Loving version of you.
