The bullies in school - i need to call you a slut and pull your pants down (an 8 yr old) so i can feel strong.
The Ex - I need you to loose weight & find a hot women to bring into our bedroom for me to feel attracted to you again.
Other people in life - I need you to change who you are and what you stand for because it makes me uncomfortable.
The guy in San Diego - I need you to agree you weren't that drunk so i believe i didn't do something very wrong.
I have wanted things to be different for me to feel better. Ohhhhh ive wanted this so much. Until i realised that that was simply a projection of the unhealed parts of myself needing attention. Thats a really sucky thing to realise about ones self. But thats when i began to evolve and become more of who i wanted to be.
When i realised how powerful i could be in the creation of my world and found out so many other people in the world were doing the same.....i could no longer expect anyone else OR ANYTHING ELSE to change to make me feel better - i had to take massive action to do that. By doing that i started to see how much that served those around me. When my energy was better, when my love and confidence in myself was up - people would come to me and tell me how much it helps them - something ive always wanted to do in this world.
Even if you dont care what your impact is on others - at least do this for yourself, find ways to make yourself feel better (without harming others) regardless of external circumstances out of your control. Every single one of us is a leader in this world because, really, there is no world - there's only 7.5billion understandings of it. And if we can change one persons understanding of how loved they are, how worthy they are of joy, how safe they are in our presence - then we have changed the whole thing.
We dont like to believe we can be that powerful but we are. Words are powerful. Moments are powerful. A look of hate or a look of love can have an impact that lasts a lift time.
So what will your impact be? <3
