Does the end of a friendship help you clarify your values? You’re damn right it does.
My friend was insulted. She and I were out at a restaurant after many months of hiatus. She shared a lot that night. She made a lot of proclamations, but was still wrestling with many decisions. She was climbing out of a huge challenge and calling in balance, abundance and sustainability.
I repeated her words back to her. I wanted to make sure I understood her clearly. I sought to show her that I was listening. She felt judged by my words (her words) and declared that she didn’t want to be friends anymore.
This breakdown with my friend was difficult for me, yet it helped me clarify who I want to be, what I stand for and what I am creating in the world. The scenario exemplifies how close to the surface our core wounds reside. It showed me how often humans attack and misunderstand each other.
What causes the outbursts?
The voice of our inner critic drowns out friendships, love, and confidence. The critic in our heads makes us codependent and afraid to reach our potential. Our inner wounding lashes out and defends our fragility.
This scenario was a wake-up call. This was the universe asking me if I’m serious about what I stand for. I say this because, in that moment, I sensed my own inner wounding. I also felt my inner calling and my highest self. Yes! I am serious about this work! I get to hold space for women as they shed the inner critic! I get to create a safe powerful transformative container for women to shed their inner wounds and misbeliefs about themselves and the world!
Not everyone is ready for feedback. Not everyone is ready to have you ask them, “Can I repeat back to you what I think I hear you saying?” Sometimes, that person’s own words are not music to their ears.
This situation showed me who I get to be.
It showed me that not everyone is ready for the path of awakening to their freedom. Some of us are happier in our cages.
The box looks different for everyone. Most humans are contentedly miserable following the path of societal norms and intergenerational wounding.
I’d love to support you as you find your way out of the cage. I will hold open the door for you. I will hold you energetically as you explore your true nature and spread your wings. I am here for this purpose.
Let me share the way with you. Check it out.
Should you accept, you will learn how I went from unraveling in 2018 to rejoicing in 2021.
