Here is an idea that came to me at work that I HAD to share. For Lent (or: Tuesday / Whenever you are reading this / Because you like red/ You!) consider giving up your self-hatred.
I know. I know! My work is really getting to me. 😛
But, check it. What are the stories you tell yourself? Are they true? What ideas about yourself and your future do they perpetuate? Are you living out a self-imposed narrative instead of just living?
Simply, take a second to question that script in your mind. By acknowledging that it is merely that– a story– you will gain some perspective and some creative, narrative freedom for the protagonist– YOU!
We do not have to be the thing we are so desperately trying to convince ourselves we are. We could just be.
I think Mary Oliver says beautifully!
the only life you could save.
