This is something I need to work on, something that I think many of us need to work on and it isn't just the aspects of seeing ourselves as repulsive, shameful and unforgivable, it is also about seeing ourselves as being unworthy. Unworthy of our own time, unworthy of our own love, unworthy of being put first, being treated right, being able to have your dreams, the list goes on. We really have so many demons to fight in today's society, all of us, no matter how adjusted we may think someone is, are fighting these demons. We're fighting against our own dialogue of self hate, we're fighting against societal pressure or perceived societal pressure, we're fighting against the demands on our body, on our time, on our souls that are unreasonable and unhealthy. So many of us feel unfulfilled in our lives, that there is something just beyond our grasp that we don't seem to be able to obtain and we have to realize that the only thing that is holding us back is ourselves and our own fears.
Now I'm not talking extreme lifestyles changes here, lets face it that really isn't a realistic opportunity for many of us as we have people other than ourselves in our lives that we also have to accommodate. However, we can each of us take steps every day to address those things that are holding us back from being our authentic selves. We can chip away at the negative thinking and the robotic trundle we each do daily through life and we can work towards making our own dance. That is my goal.
