How to Handle Guilt
Hey there, gorgeous!
It’s been quite a week for me. I had set my intentions for the next 90 days, and wouldn’t you know it, the universe revealed that it had other plans for me!
I’m processing through a number of different emotions right now. The most difficult one for me is guilt.
Our emotional states have their own unique frequency or vibration. Guilt, and its dependable co-pilot, shame, are the lowest vibration.
One of the best ways to move through the low vibration of guilt is to cultivate an attitude of gratitude.
However, sometimes feelings of guilt come from being codependent. Codependency is an addiction to relating to other people in a destructive manner.
I used to be a codependent perfectionist.
I was obsessed with what other people thought about me and compared my life to others’ lives on a regular basis.
I was also very hard on myself when I wasn’t “perfect”.
It was totally exhausting and no way to live.
I also hated disappointing people - which is another form of codependency.
"You cannot live a brave life without disappointing some people. Those people who get disappointed - it’s really OK. The people who really care for you, the people who are rooting for your rise, will not be disappointed. The only people who will be disappointed are those with their own agenda, and their agenda is not aligned with your agenda.” -Oprah Winfrey, from “Living Brave” with Brene Brown

So while a lot is up in the air right now, I have a good feeling about how everything is going to land.
In the meantime, I have an amazing support network and resources available to me.
Have a beautiful week and stay tuned for more exciting news this month!
All my love and gratitude,
