I promise to stay true to myself even if that means disappointing another.
I wrote this statement as a commitment to myself early this year during a women's retreat.
In the YOU University coaching program, I learned many tools for processing my emotions and to discover repressed fears, in order to learn from my life experiences instead of feeling like a victim. These tools are practical and as I continue to use them, they change my life all for the better.
Finding the Gift in every situation is one of them. Just recently I had the opportunity to apply this tool.
A few weeks ago I decided to take on a new activity in my life, believing I would enjoy doing it. I accepted the challenge because it sort of fell into my lap without much effort. But now I realize that it is not what it seemed to be; because I consider myself responsible, I'm having a hard time communicating to the other party my decision to not provide my services anymore.
Once again, I realize that it's still difficult for me to honor my feelings and desires when I have to disappoint someone else. Many times in the past I've stayed in situations that have been detrimental to my peace of mind.
This time, and moving forward, I choose to care for myself and to stay true to Me. Thank you for the gift that has been revealed to help me heal and become more of who I truly am!
