🙏🏼 BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR OTHERS 🙏🏼

When you attach yourself to other people, they become part of your identity so you might feel responsible for their actions or even how they feel. 

.

But when you trust people to be responsible for themselves, you are also empowering them to take ownership of their own reality.
.
What other people think of you is none of your business. What your friends, parents and your parents’ friends think of you is not your problem. Imagine all the energy you put into trying to not upset anyone and trying to not rock the boat etc. All that energy can go into you being yourself, focusing on your dreams and working towards making them your reality.
.
If I worried about what my parents thought, what my relatives thought, feel responsible for how my posts make them feel, I would stop writing today. Literally I would never write ever again. Of course I do sometimes but I get over it and share what I want to share.
.
When I wrote about bit more taboo subjects like menstruation blood, lovemaking, sexuality etc my dad always supported me. I never thought he’d do that. Not only the posts gave a lot to people, but it also showed me how much my dad loved and cared about me. I saw he was way more expressive with his love in written than in person. If I had taken responsibility for making people feel uncomfortable, I would have never seen this.
.
Only take ownership of your actions, your words, your creations, anything that comes from you. How other people receive that is not your problem.
.
You can still be loving and hold the space for people. Just don’t take responsibility for their emotions on board. Hold your centre, send back any energy that’s not you and shift your focus to what you love.
.
Love you ❤️
