Just in the past few months alone I’ve been called cold hearted and nasty by those I’ve set boundaries with. I’ve been judged, had my integrity questioned, and I’ve had my own moments of negative self-talk.
In those same months, I’ve also been told I enrich peoples lives, I make people better versions of themselves, and I make the world a better place. I’ve been told that I am bold, brave, strong, insightful and smart. That I deserve the very best in life, and I’m caring, warm, and fun spirited. I’ve been told that I’m an incredible human, and I have felt full of self love, strong, and confident!
Why am I sharing this?
Because there are many versions of us that exist in the world.
Many created without even truly knowing us or our story.
Many with past knowledge.
Many with another’s insight.
Many through others’ projections and perceptions.
Many versions that are in our control, and many not in our control.
Many that can be incredibly positive and uplifting.
Many that can be negative and disempowering.
At the end of the day, we get to decide what the truest version of ourselves is.
We get to decide who we truly are in this world.
And we get to decide what version matters.
Through my own journey of putting in the work, I know what version of myself is my truest version today.
And I know that she will continue to evolve and change.
I know my values, and I live by them.
I know what aligns, so that I can make choices that are best for me.
I know what doesn’t align so that I can discern what to let go of.
I am strong and confident in who I am, which allows me to silence the inner critic and ignore the outer ones.
I love the woman I am and the woman I will be.
I feel empowered and free.
