Popular quote says when someone shows you who they are, believe it.
I have a twist to that idea: when someone shows you who YOU are, believe it.
What we allow in our lives says a lot about who we are, what we believe and how we feel about ourselves. If we are not willing to lean in to the pain and discomfort someone's impact
(whether disappointment, anger, betrayal, etc. - all of which are really steeped in hurt, by the way)
causes us - and look into how we ended up in a place to receive it, we will not grow beyond the limiting belief that we are a victim- that someone did something we couldn't have avoided.
Like it or not, a lot of the time, that just is not true.
And also like it or not, we play a HUGE role in the pain and hurt we experience at the hands of others.
What pain or disappointment are you feeling, due to someone else's impact, and refusing to acknowledge and accept responsibility for?
