Lately, I’m beginning to get more clear on what I need for growth and fulfillment in all areas of life. I’m being forced to recognized and accept that while frustrating and often painful, releasing ideas, material things, and even some relationships that no longer feel oriented toward growth and healing is necessary. It’s a learning lesson and embodying the lesson is a stage in personal evolution. I’m no longer contradicting my desires or compromising my boundaries in the interest of immediate gratification or people pleasing. I know here are still lessons re: both of these issues for me. Self-sabotage is an insidious beast.
