It can be so subtle how we can step away from living OUR life and live someone else's. If you're noticing that you are feeling out of alignment, low energy, or a lack of joy, it might be important to reflect how much and how deeply you are listening to your inner self. When you are an easygoing, loving person, it can be so easy to put another person's wants and needs ahead of your own., especially someone who is so important to you.
Today, ask yourself: what do I want? What is one important way that I can take care of myself? What would it be like to put what I want first? How much am I accommodating someone else? And at what price?
It takes courage. Reach out to someone else if you need the support. And begin to make the shift.
