I’ve noticed that the number one advice people are guaranteed to offer you no matter what your situation is, is to BE YOURSELF! We are constantly telling people to be themselves, be true to who they are, and to live their own truths.
But, most times, we do not allow people to be themselves. We restrict them by making unnecessary comments, side-eyeing them, talking about them to others,placing high expectations on them, etc… I am guilty of this too by the way.
I know first hand how difficult it is to completely be authentic to self, and I am still working on it so it is imperative that I surround myself with people who will not judge me. And everyone deserves to be surrounded by non-judgmental people. I do not mean people who will encourage any stupid thing we come up with but people who will correct us in love and sometime allow us to make our own mistakes.
I just wanted to share this because it’s been on my heart for a while and since getting back on instagram, (iwritewutilikeblog) I’ve found myself being more judge-y of others and myself more. So I decided if I’m going to be an advocate for people being themselves, then I need to ALLOW them to be themselves and free them of my opinions and criticisms.
and Oh! Glorious new month
so much love
