“Can you see the real me?”
This article on your authentic self got me thinking about how untethered from my authentic self I had become in the final haze of drinking. It was a toxic brew of wine and an abusive relationship – though the booze is what kept me waaaay down and unable to rescue myself. To paraphrase the saying — I was so low, down looked like up to me!
Today, as I get saner and more connected with my life and reality with each passing sober day, I think about how much I had lost touch with ME. I was so lost that I came to believe what was said about me. I’d even started to believe that ‘I must really be a bad person. What a loser.’
Why it’s so important to be more you:
- Living outside of yourself is exhausting. It will break you down.
- You’ll take better care of yourself when you are more you.
- You’ll give to the world in bigger and better ways because you have an authentic place to give from.
- You’ll attract the right people for you. They can’t know you and love you until you do.
- There will be more love.
