[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Anything else is bullsh*t

When has shrinking ourselves because of fear helped us? It has never
helped. Fear is an emotion that should visit and when it leaves, it should
make you brave. It should make you want to do more, create more and learn
more. Fear is normal but when we let fear stay too long, it paralyses us.
Ijeoma

Anyone who asks you, demands of you, suggest to you, hints to you to
downplay what you are doing and how you are being, I am suggesting you run
far like Forest.

Anytime you feel a knot in your stomach as you approach something that you
really want to do but is different to what you have done before I am
suggesting to you that you go for it, to feel the fear and do it anyway

Jump to it as Aretha sings, that fear is a sign that you are doing
something massive

Anytime someone feels uncomfortable for just being you, put on the Forest
shoes, and run

The people who are in your corner are real! they tell you what they are
feeling with authenticity and love, they are happy for your growth and
success, anything else is bullshit

So you choose

Peace
