I was always one of those people who thought highly of what others thought of me. I would bend how I acted and carried myself so that others would be pleased and not offended by any means. Did it always work? No, and it was EXTREMELY draining. Mentally, physically, emotionally and even spiritually. Then I begin to notice that my daughter was being more aware of my mannerisms and mimicking the way that I was carrying myself. When I thought about it, I realized that I didn't want my daughter to pick up on those habits that I was doing that didn't please nor serve my highest good.
I didn't want to pass on to her this mentality that you have to bend yourself to please others. So I had to make some changes before those unfavorable behaviors that she was mimicking stuck. I want my daughter to learn to love herself unconditionally. So I had to learn to love myself unconditionally. I desire for my daughter to not have to fight the same battles that I have fought for all of my life. So I have to stop making those battles an option on my life. What I want her to know is that if you are happy with you, that is all that matters because people change with the wind. The last 40 years have taught me that tough lesson. It was and is up to me and if I can help it, she won't have to. #Unapologetically and #UnapologeticAF
