Growth can be painful, not just for you, but for those who aren’t always prepared in the moment to cope with your new ways of existing and prioritizing your wellness. This is okay, and has the potential to inspire growth and change in others, or clarity about relationships that may not grow and change to accommodate growing and deepening versions of you.

Saying no is the first part of protecting our own sacred boundary. We don’t have to explain it, justify it, or defend it, but so often we do. I love empowering clients to stand powerfully in your own hard-earned, valid-without-justification, and sacred NO.

Do not EVER listen to narratives that direct you to stuff down, deny, or smile away your tears. When you need to cry, allow those tears to exist. Honor them as valid even if others don’t. Those aren’t people to trust with your sacred vulnerability. Healing often starts with tears and it’s rarely accomplished without them, so remember that fully feeling is a BADASS SUPER POWER and wear your emotional vulnerability cape with pride. 🙌🏻This has been my PSA on toxic positivity for today.
I was fortunate to be able to contribute to another piece for PsychCentral, and this topic feels timely, given recent the polar vortex and this coming weekend’s winter midpoint. There is still delight to be had, even in the cold months!
