Many of us are always trying to meet the needs of others in search of consciously or unconsciously wanting to be loved or feel needed and often don’t even realize that by doing so, we are dishonouring our self. We can honour others by being considerate, non judgemental, generous and compassionate but the question I am asking here is a much deeper question than that.
Have you ever put yourself in some situation throughout your lifetime where you dishonoured your own being? How many times have you allowed others to be disrespectful, verbally or physically abusive, controlling, or stayed in a situation to the point where your spirit’s depleted? Perhaps it’s a boss, a family member, a spouse, or a friend that we stay in these relationships with and continue to comprise our own heart, but whatever the situation, during these times many people tend to feel it deeply in their soul that something is just not right, and yet still they continue to stay in environments that ignore their own hearts calling, and usually it’s out of fear.
When we make choices to stay in these situations, we often set out on a path of self betrayal, and it’s not until we recognize that we have betrayed our own self by staying in these dysfunctional situations that we realize the importance of honouring thy self. When we truly begin to honour ones self in every aspect of our lives, goodness begins to flow from that for the self and for others.
I often hear reports from people regarding how fearful they were about removing themselves from situations in their life that were not honouring their spirit, and when they finally made the decision to do so and listened to their heart, they were truly shocked at how much easier it was to meet their fear of leaving the situation than they could have ever imagined. And, once they had done so, what do you suppose they discovered ~ the peace that is here ~ that always here.
May you discover the peace in your life by truly honouring your own SELF.
In love, Lorraine
