Thought That Jails
I consider myself too old (and maybe even too smart) to care about what other people think of me. And yet. . . I catch this kind of thinking rampaging my sense of well-being daily. But I recognize it's always a choice. There's thought that jails and thought that frees. Fabulously, when we don't worry what anyone else thinks of us, we free them too; we show them we each have our own path, one that must be created by us and reflective of our unique way.
We also free others because we're no longer looking to them to make us happy. Now, instead of trying to get the "right" response from these poor people, we can just appreciate them.
Mental jails are always constructed of self-criticism and self-attack. But without all of that there is nothing to hold us back, no reason to withhold our authentic natural expression, quirky and rich as it is. The gift we're all here to give.
