People are so consumed by giving things names and labels. They don’t realize they are building their own boxes to live in. Those boxes soon start to feel like a prison.
I wish everyone could see that giving energy to these types of “us versus them” teams is all the same. You are the flip side of the same coin.
Be yourself. Stop seeking permission or acceptance. You cannot be authentic and be liked or understood by the masses, or anyone at all times. Unless you like being stagnant.
I wish you the best and hope you spark the flame of courage to light the way to go deeper on the journey within yourself.
I have complete alcohol blackouts due to occasional emotional induced binge drinking. I don’t know why I even consume alcohol knowing I shouldn’t. The shame that comes afterwards clings so tightly. I know being hard on oneself delays the process of trying to learn why and try to better yourself so the next time I hopefully make a better decision like not drinking. Ugh! I go 6+ months without a drop and then out of nowhere it creeps up and I fall.
Just sharing to try and get it out of my head.
Anyways, I hope wherever you are you are well.
