It’s so important to show up for yourself mainly because no one else will. Being who you truly are will free you from the limitations that stop you from experiencing a full life. To show up for yourself is brave, requires courage and opens up your vulnerabilities but on the other side, you get to live an authentic life. You get to be who you were meant to be and you get to inspire others to do the same.
Think about how much time you spend trying to be what other people want you to be. Trying to please your parents, trying to make friends, trying to keep up with work and responsibilities. And then, think about when was the last time someone showed up for you? When was the last time someone cared enough about your needs and wants to make sure they were met?
Waiting for other people to show up for you can lead to an immense amount of disappointment. So why not make it easier on yourself by just being exactly who you want to be? Trusting in your Self enough to know that what you’re doing by being your true Self is all that matters (so long as you’re not causing harm.) It’s an empowering journey.
